DHS athletes bag 28 medals at NKZN meeting

Endumeni, Pionier en Umzinyathi atletiek
Die afgelope twee weke was baie besig vir die atlete van Hoërskool Dundee.
Dit het begin met die Endumeni byeenkoms waar die atlete aan verskeie items deelgeneem het. DHS se atlete het in meeste van die items eerste of tweede plekke gekry, wat beteken dat hulle gekwalifiseer het vir die Umzinyathi distrik byeenkoms.

On Thursday, February 2, 25 excited athletes went to the annual NKZN schools athletics meeting in Vryheid. Being a small squad, a lot of the athletes were participating in more than one item. After a lot of running, pushing, throwing, jumping and leaving their bodies on the line, the athletes amassed a total of 10 gold medals, 11 silver medals and 7 bronze medals, placing the school second overall at the meet.

Op Saterdag, 4 Februarie, het die atlete wat deelgeneem het aan die Endumeni byeenkoms ook deelgeneem aan die Umzinyathi distrik byeenkoms, met die hoop om te kwalifiseer vir die span wat deurgaan na die KZN Skole kampioenskappe. DHS se atlete het hulself goed van hulle take gekwyt en het baie goed by die byeenkoms presteer. Daar is deur ‘n skamele 27 atlete ‘n totaal van 18 goue medaljes, 7 silwer en 2 brons medaljes ingeoes op die dag. Daar word nou net gewag vir ‘n finale aankonding vir die Umzinyathi span, maar voorlopig het agt van DHS se atlete die span gemaak.

Media Centre
The Media Centre offers a great service to our learners. They enjoy reading a new book and appreciate the assistance they receive from fellow learners and a very supportive Mrs Devereux (new librarian) who has completely renovated the media centre inside and out. Breaks have become more interesting and learners are queuing to take out books more than ever. The school is extremely excited to see what this new reading programme has in store for the learners at DHS. Mrs Devereux has shown us that a little enthusiasm coupled with passion and devotion goes a long way.
