Latest from the Head Master’s Desk : 3 March 2017

I attended meetings for Principals on Monday 27 February and Tuesday 28 February and it was good to see that the framework is in place in respect of monitoring and feedback to individual schools on each subject.

I have no doubt this monitoring and accountability will have the desired effect on our education system. It is pleasing and I am sure that the system is on an upward curve. It was also humbling to meet Principals from other schools which have immense challenges, yet still produce outstanding academic results. Our young gentlemen need to understand how privileged they are to attend a well- resourced school such as Durban High School and the wonderful opportunities they are exposed to in this environment. Our young men need to embrace these challenges so that they prepare themselves for life and give themselves the best possible opportunity of making their dreams a reality.

We host Northwood in the final summer sport fixture this weekend. Some of rugby teams are taking part in the Voortrekker Festival on Friday 3rd March. We wish all our teams every success.

Our thanks to all the Staff, Coaches and learners involved in the summer sports programme.
