I think the very first day at a new school must be the most exciting, most daunting, most interesting or even scarey day of the whole school year.
After the first day, though, things somehow become easier. There are so many new faces and places to see, trials and smiles to experience that it can be rather overwhelming especially if you are only in Grade R! But everyone who is wearing a DSS uniform automatically belongs to our DSS family and they are made to feel welcome from the very first day.
Mr Arno Stegen took the morning devotion on the theme for the year – Light. The BIble reading came from Ephesians 5:8 “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light. ” He encouraged the learners to be a light at all times, and to be a stable and constant light throughout the year.
