“The most important shot in golf is the next one”. – Ben Hogan
Do you know any golfers who would like to play for FUN? Then bring your friends, colleagues, and of course your best game to play in supporting the Deutsche Schule Durban, on Friday, the 22nd of September at Kloof Country Club.
LET’S TASTE SOME WINE 🍷
Join us on Friday, 25 November at 18h00 in the Roland Fritsch Aula as we enjoy some wines, snacks and each other’s company. It’s also a great opportunity to stock up for the summer holidays😎🎄!
Wines can be ordered on the night and collected from the school about a week after the event, but definitely before the close of school on the 7th of December.
We hope to see you there, and don’t forget to invite friends and family!
Tickets cost R100 or R150 for 2 and can be ordered via the link below, Ellen Botha or purchased directly at the DSD Reception office:

Spirits were high as we welcomed all DSD parents to the school for the first time since March last year to enjoy this joyous day. Although the sun was hot, everyone had a great time as our learners and some staff dressed up in very creative costumes, while parading on the sports field to classic Fasching (Carnival) music. This bit of normality allowed for a lot of smiles under all the masks. Find the full Album on our Facebook page.
Given the rise in Covid cases and the return to Lockdown Level 3, there is much uncertainty and speculation on when schools should reopen. Most independent schools are scheduled to reopen a week later than the DSD, and the most recent communication from ISASA (Independent School’s Association of Southern Africa) recommends that schools planning to open next week should delay doing so by at least a week. This is in line with the advice that we have received from numerous medical practitioners, including a paediatric specialist.
Our intention is thus to reopen the school a week later than scheduled, with lessons to start on Tuesday 19 January, subject to further developments between now and then. We will advise more details asap!
Please note that the uniform shop will thus NOT be open this Friday as initially communicated!
Thank you for your understanding. These are very tricky times and we need to manage our activities carefully.
PLEASE ensure that your children are as close to being quarantined as possible for the next while before school starts. All the health care professionals that we were in contact with stressed the importance of mask wearing, social distancing and hand washing, as well as to stay at home as much as possible. Their advice (instruction!) is to keep your “‘bubble of interaction” as small as possible and to refrain from play dates and visits with friends and family. If unavoidable then please wear masks, even if with family
We will provide you with more updates as soon as possible. Please stay safe, apologies for any inconvenience and enjoy the extra week with your children.
Tomorrow is the day! Our Golf Day is happening. After two failed attempts we are elated that we have the opportunity to host our day tomorrow.
We would like to use this opportunity to thank our Sponsors. Without you, we wouldn’t have made it to this point. Tomorrow is set to be a fantastic day, which is something that would not have been possible without your support.
Here are our Sponsors, and once again we would like to say DANKESCHÖN!
The Covid-19 lock-down has hit everyone hard. As much as we applaud our President for taking the necessary steps to protect us all, it has led to some parents not having an income and therefore not being able to pay necessities such as school fees.
As a school we have always believed in making our education available to as many deserving children as possible, regardless of their financial background. This has always been rewarding, but has put financial strain on us in the past, and now even more so in these hard times.
Please consider making a donation, no matter how big or small, towards a deserving child’s education. You would be making the world of difference.
