ATKV Applous Choir Competition
On 22 May the ATKV Applous Choir Competition took place in Newcastle. The DHS Choir won silver at the competition under the conductor, John Mulhatton. We are very proud of our choir and look forward to even greater heights next year!
On Saturday, 27 May, four of our learners participated in the South African Literacy Association (SALA) Speech Competition held at Ferrum High School, Newcastle. Minenhle Mnguni, Muhammed Hofesse, Keshmiel Govender and Kiana Sadaw who were accompanied by Mrs. Sewmangal, all performed exceedingly well. The learners report that participating in such a contest was a most enriching experience and they would like to encourage all other learners to make use of similar opportunities which might enable them to unleash their own hidden talents. We congratulate all four learners for receiving gold certificates and for being excellent ambassadors of our school. We also express our appreciation to Mrs. Sewmangal for her mentoring and support.
