Returning from his recent triumph with the SA U21 team who won gold in the African Junior World Cup Qualifiers, Leruo Ditlhakanyane has now been named in the 24 Man South African Men’s Indoor Squad.
This young man, who is still only 17 years old, has already started to make a mark on the South African Hockey scene and we are certain that this will not be the last time you hear his name in a South African Hockey Squad.
Congratulations to Zingce Simka and Hopewell Ntshangase who have both been selected for the South African U18A Sevens Rugby Team.

Cayden Diener, Grade 8, has been selected as a member of one of the four official South African teams to participate in the Bulgaria International Mathematics Competition (BIMC) 2023. Only 16 High School scholars in South Africa are selected to make up four teams of four members each.
Cayden competed with Grade 8 to 12 scholars who all took the same tests and received the same training. He will travel to Bloemfontein on 27 June 2023 to start his week of training and preparation before the official contest, which will be written on Monday 3 July 2023 on a virtual platform in Bloemfontein.
We are extremely proud of this achievement, as he has worked extremely hard to get this far. This will be his second international contest as he was selected to compete in the Primary School division last year when it was hosted by Indonesia.

If it’s not the boys achieving the highest honours, it is the DHS Staff that are.
