Part of preparing our boys for life, is preparing them for leadership. DHS has a history of producing outstanding leaders in various field including Cabinet Minister Alec Erwin and a former Lord Mayor of London, Sir Gavyn Arthur. DHS is recognised as a top school in the country for producing South Africa’s leaders.
If there is any doubt about the ability of DHS to produce leaders both locally and internationally, a quick glance at the 20 pages on Wikipedia listing prominent DHS Old Boys will silence it. However, at Durban High School we are not satisfied with those 20 pages, we are committed to adding to those pages year by year. In our continued efforts to develop leaders for the 21st Century, we recognize that it will take a combination of valuing tradition and seeking innovation.
At DHS we believe that while it may not be possible to offer every boy a leadership position at the School, we can help every one of them grow in their leadership skills. The leadership programme at DHS therefore consists of a number of different initiatives.
