The Power of Collaboration

Teamwork, collaboration, courage, determination, decision making, failure and victory are just some of the life lessons associated with participation in the many activities on offer at the school outside the classroom. Last weekend I drove between different schools to watch both junior and senior girls and boys basketball. The tremendous skills of our players and their passion and excitement for the sport was contagious. What pleased me in particular is the genuine support our students show for each other when a teammate does something well and the encouragement shown for each other. I find this very uplifting and infectious.

I would encourage more parents to make the time to come and support our children in these different activities and I look forward to seeing you, as together we cheer on our most precious assets.

On a very sad note I close with the news that Mr Simon Phahlamolakha passed away last week. "Uncle Simon," as he was affectionately known, recently retired from DCS after 50 years of dedicated service. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.
