Mr Haschke challenged the school to collectively donate R3000 towards CANSA. If this amount was reached, Mr Haschke promised to colour his very prominent beard bright pink the day before shaving it off. DHS is incredibly proud of all their learners and staff who unselfishly donated towards this very deserving cause. DHS met its target and exceeded it, raising well over R7000! Special mention must be made of Mrs Boshoff and her register class 12AB because they collected about half of the target amount. Thank you to all the prefects, educators, learners and of course Mr Haschke for your spirit shown on Friday. Poetry Club
Two learners represented DHS at a poetry workshop, on 22 March 2014, in Durban. Ayanda Duze and Sifundiswa Phiri had the privilege of attending and gaining a lot of knowledge from the experience. The learned about advanced poetry writing, composition, story writing and analysing poetry in your own language. This was an excellent opportunity for these two learners and DHS would like to thank Mrs Madondo for co-ordinating the poetry club. MUDMAN
The second Mudman is already done and dusted! The Epworth Mudman, held at the Albert Falls Dam took place on 2 March. 31 DHS learners left very early in the morning to join a huge crowd of fellow mudmen. All the DHS learners spent a beautiful day at the dam swimming, cycling and then struggling through a very hot, dusty, sticky run. A special thank you must be said to Justin Dekker's Granny, who baked delicious biscuits for all the DHS participants! Well done to all the full-individual and half-individual athletes as well as the teams; you made DHS proud! See you all at the Cordwalles Mudman in two weeks. Boys' Hockey 1st team
