We have now entered a new phase with the State President’s announcement that we are moving to Alert Level 1 as of Sunday, 20 September 2020. This reflects a decrease in Covid-19 related transmissions throughout the country. Over the next week or so, we will receive more specific information as to how this will impact the Educational sector. As always, we believe we are well...

Following the announcement by the MEC of Basic Education, schools will resume for Grade 12 and Grade 7 learners from 1 June 2020. The other grades will return through a phased approach. As a school, we have been working hard behind the scenes these past couple of weeks in preparation to ensure that the safety of our staff and boys is paramount. We are more...

We have been in Lockdown for a month now and there is not one member of the DHS community that has not been affected by this, in one form or another. Be it from emotional stresses of being in isolation (cabin fever), financial concerns or the anxious uncertainty fed by a continuous barrage of opinions on social and mainstream media. It is easy to give...

With an early start to the year, a long term has concluded. The release of the 2018 NSC results in January 2019 reflected excellent achievements from the boys who were committed to their academics and poor results from boys who lacked focus. We welcomed 202 new Grade 8 boys into the school brotherhood; they have certainly settled in well and have already made a positive...

The end of the year brings about the festive season and a time to spend with loved ones. I’m sure the Matrics have this tinged with some angst as they await their results, which will undoubtedly reflect their efforts. The rest of School showed a marked improvement from the previous term and special mention must be made of the very good Grade 8 results in...

Term 3 has come and gone as we take a break to catch our breath. There is no doubt that this is a very busy school, but it is this busyness that ensures that we continue to grow and at the same time prepare our boys for the challenges that lie ahead of them when they leave school! Some boys however, don’t utilise the opportunities...

  The end of term 1 of 2018 sees the completion of my first year as Head Master of this incredible institution. The journey has certainly been a blur of activity punctuated with many highlights, too many to mention even in précis form. Transformation in education is a worldwide phenomenon as it has been recognised that traditional education practices and theories are outdated. In education,...

The relationship between Staff, Parents, Old Boys and the Community is vital in support of the African proverb of “It takes a village to raise a child”. I thank all role players for their dedication and support throughout this term in the development of our Boys.  The pure weight of activities and events taking place at DHS makes it impossible to reflect on them all. ...

The second term of 2017 has certainly been an eventful one, and personally very rewarding. It has been very gratifying to receive the support of the boys, parents, staff and passionate Old Boys of School. While there is much to do, there is no shortage of willingness from all parties. Obviously, a stand out feature of the term has been the success of the 1st...
