Message From The Principal

February 2024

Dear Parents, Students, and Staff,

I trust this newsletter finds you in good health and high spirits as we navigate through the month of February. It is with mixed emotions that I share updates and reflections on recent events within our school community.

I want to express my deepest appreciation to our students for their hard work and commitment during the recent exam period. Completing exams is no small feat, and each student's dedication to their studies has not gone unnoticed. Results for the Diploma Exams taken in January will be available in mid-February, and students can check their scores on MyPass after February 16.

With the exams behind us, we now turn our focus to the start of a new semester. This is a time for fresh starts, new goals, and renewed determination. I encourage both students and staff to embrace the opportunities that come with a new academic term and to approach the upcoming challenges with a positive mindset.

Acknowledging Loss and Change:

During the Christmas break, our school community faced a somber note with the untimely loss of two students. Our hearts go out to their families, friends, and everyone who knew them.  We will have future opportunities to remember and celebrate their lives in the coming semester.

Additionally, it is with a mix of gratitude and sadness that we bid farewell to Mrs. Nielsen, one of our valued admin support team members. Mrs. Nielsen has been an integral part of our school community, and while we are sad to see her go, we wish her the very best in her new endeavor. We extend our heartfelt thanks for her dedicated service to our school.

As we navigate through both the joys and challenges of this academic year, let us stand united as a supportive school community. The strength of our community lies in our ability to come together during times of celebration and support each other through times of sorrow.

Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding.

The DHS Admin Team
