In spite of a rather gloomy day when compared to the other beautiful spring days we have recently enjoyed, our inter-house athletics meeting was held in good spirits on Friday 26 August. The field events were concluded during the course of the week and then teams Max and Moritz took to the track to battle it out for the coveted inter-house athletics trophy. Moritz clinched the gala earlier in the year and so team Max had a point to prove, which they did by winning the event by 231 points to 195. In the process 11 records were broken and one was equalled. Congratulations to all our children who participated and supported their house so enthusiastically.
We were also pleased to host Mr Charles Liasides, his sister Frederike and their aunt at our athletics meeting to officially open the new grandstand that the Liasides family had generously funded in honour of their late mother who had taught at the DSD many years before. The new grandstand was packed with parents and supporters and has certainly proved to be a wonderful addition to the school’s infrastructure. We are grateful to the Liasides family for their generous contribution to the school and to the Mower family who donated once again balloons for the event.
