What a great day of Sport! Thank you to Kearsney College for hosting Durban High School on Saturday 19 March, it was a remarkable day of Schoolboy Sport. We are very proud of the behaviour and support displayed by our boys and the following comments received reaffirm this:
“Always a pleasure to host boys and staff of DHS on Botha’s Hill. Thanks for making it such a great celebration of schoolboy sport.”
“I was so impressed with the DHS boys and their manners. Well done! (Kearsney Parent myself) What a day out for all. Your boys gave it all both on the field and in the stands to make it a celebration and treat as a spectator….”
