On Tuesday 20 September Durban High School celebrated a special evening in which we saw the opening of the AD Pinheiro High Performance Centre of Durban High School.

The evening was attended by a gathering of Old Boys, Staff and the greater community of both DHS and South African Rugby.

However, a great emphasis must be put on the presence of Gavin Varejes (Class of 1974) – a truly remarkable DHS Old Boy. Through this generous, enthusiastic and passionate Old Boy, DHS can now proudly say that we have a state-of-the-art High Performance Centre. It truly was an honour to have Mr Varejes in attendance.

DHS boys will now have access to one of the best, if not the best, training facility for sport in Durban.

To Mr Varejes, we are eternally grateful for not only your generosity, but your immense pride and passion towards School. We echo the words of every person who is lucky enough to cross paths with you in saying that you truly are a ‘Legend’.

Deo Fretus!
