|Dundee High celebrates whitewash rugby victory against Newcastle High
DHS vs Newcastle Public Speaking
DHS learners and coaches made an early start to Saturday morning, travelling to Newcastle High to engage in a day of sport. Thank you to all who made the day possible, especially NHS for hosting, to the teams for playing their hearts out and to the coaches, managers and parents who came to support.
Die o/14 dogters- hokkiespan het 'n gemaklike oorwinning teen Newcastle behaal, en die toekoms van hokkie by Hoërskool Dundee lyk baie belowend. The u/16 girls displayed grandeur cohesion and managed to beat Newcastle High 3 goals to none. Die 1ste dogters-hokkiespan het skitterend gespeel, en het volgehoue toewyding en passie gewys. Dundee High's 1st Girls hockey team ultimately strung together 2 brilliant goals and beat Newcastle 2-1. Die eertse seuns-hokkiespan het volharding en deursettingsvermoë getoon ten spyte van 'n paar verdagte beslissings van die skeidsregter. Die telling was op 'n stadium een doel elk, maar Dundee het uithouvermoë gewys en het uiteindelik met 'n telling van 3-1, as oorwinnaars uit die stryd getree.Netball:

The Preliminary round of The Daily News Rotary Public Speaking competition was hosted by Sarel Cilliers on Thursday evening, 6 March. It was an enjoyable evening, as six teams presented their thoroughly prepared speeches to the judges. Two teams had been selected to represent DHS at this round: Atiyyah Ameen, Wandile Khumalo and Sadiyah Malek spoke brilliantly of the serious problem of cyber-bullying and Owethu Mtshali, Amanda and Thembeka Masuku delved into the serious issue of steroids in schools. Both teams made DHS very proud, but unfortunately neither team was chosen to attend the semi-finals in Newcastle. Thank you to Ms Layland for hosting and DHS would like to congratulate the winners and wish them well in the next round. ASA Athletics
