2011 at DSS began with 9 brand new first-time-ever-learners in the Grade R class. There were a number who were first time DSS learners. The weather was sunny which is also quite unusual for a first school day (it is often misty and wet). Mr Detlef Stegen took the opening devotion where he challenged the learners to make 2011 a special year in every way and a year in which they can be saved: ‘Sirs, what can I do to be saved? Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you and your household will be saved.’
The Grade R learners were called to the front of the school to receive a balloon and a gift. Learners filed out class by class with their teachers for the year.
