BOY’S HOCKEY TOUR TO BLOEMFONTEIN
Over the past school holidays, Mrs Raffenberg accompanied the first boy’s hockey team to Bloemfontein for some hockey fun. The tournament was well organised and had the opportunity to play a match every day and had to compete against bigger schools who were used to astro turf, but the DHS boys did well. They lost only one game, drew two and won two games. Larnell Nero was awarded the “mid-fielder” of the tournament! It must be mentioned that the DHS hockey boys displayed excellent behaviour and truly made their school proud. They were the only school there with any kind of school spirit and as a result their matches were well-supported by the other schools, especially the girls!
The first team would like to extend their sincere appreciation to all their sponsors who cannot be repaid for their support and kindness. These sponsors truly contributed to the success of the Bloemfontein tour. A special thank you to Churchyard and Umpleby and Mr Naidoo for the lovely jackets. Also, a thank you to Mr and Mrs Maree of Glendee for sponsoring the practice T-shirts for the team. The first team would like to assure you that they were good ambassadors!
