Part of preparing our boys for life, is preparing them for leadership. DHS has a history of producing outstanding leaders in various field. DHS is recognised as a top school in the country for producing South Africa’s leaders.
If there is any doubt about the ability of DHS to produce leaders both locally and internationally, a quick glance at the 20 pages on Wikipedia listing prominent DHS Old Boys will silence it. However, at Durban High School we are not satisfied with those 20 pages, we are committed to adding to those pages year by year. In our continued efforts to develop leaders for the 21st Century, we recognize that it will take a combination of valuing tradition and seeking innovation.
The Leadership Programme at DHS consists of a number of different initiatives. They are:
Mentorship, the Khotso Horse Trails, Community Service, House Prefectship, School Prefectship, Blackmore Prefectship, the RCL, Work Experience, Co-curricular Captains and Class Captains. These operate at different grade levels.
