#KhombiSAGermany at the DSD

The #KhombiSA Germany is coming to the Deutsche Schule Durban on Monday, 23 April 2018, at 13h00.

The Honorary Consul of the Republic of Germany, Mr Horst Achtzehn, would like to invite you to an Information Presentation covering the “Legal and Consular Services of the Embassy“.

We would be grateful to see you all there.

The German Embassy Pretoria has rebuilt a 1971 model VW Kombi to showcase German culture, language and lifestyle in South Africa. #KhombiSAGermany is a word play with the isiZulu expression “Khombisa” (to show) and the English nickname “Kombi” for the VW bus in South Africa.
The bus will be at the Deutsche Schule Durban!

You can find more Information in the official invite here: Invitation KhombiSA


We are opening our first Toddler Group!

Starting January 2018, children as young as 18 months can start their school career at the Deutsche Schule Durban!

This is a great age for children to playfully and easily pick up another language, in this case German. Here at the Deutsche Schule Durban we believe that multilingualism is an important  part of an education towards a global future.


Fees will be similar to those of the current Kindergarten. Please find more information about the fees/ transport costs etc. under the following link:

Give us a call on 031 267 1307 or email us [email protected] to find out how you can become a part of the DSD Family.


Last week the DSD children presented their lovely musical “Mats und die Wundersteine.” After weeks of rehearsals and big excitement, they delivered a wonderful performance! We’d like to express our gratitude to our enthusiastic music and orchestra teachers, Nina Alborough and Marianne von Delft.


And once again the Deutsche Schule Durban is proud of the sports achievements of its learners! At the Hermannsburg Olympiad last week we competed against the other German schools in KwaZulu-Natal and did very well. Overall, the DSD won first prize in swimming, football and cricket and also the Victor and Victrix Ludorum for the best of grade 7 went to DSD learners, Felix Kroeber and Melanie Cooke. Congratulations!




On Tuesday the Deutsche Schule Durban was filled with excited children in imaginative costumes. We all had a wonderful morning watching the children parade through the hall, eating pancakes and playing games.
