With the rest of the country, DSS also started the new school year on 13 January.
For some, it was their very first day in a school uniform and if that happens to you at DSS, you get balloons and sweets. For all the other learners who did not start Grade R in 2016, it was business as usual. Maybe a new teacher, some new class mates, new subjects and a different classroom made it special. There is no time to waste when chasing a curriculum and everybody got stuck in from Day One. The long summer holiday quickly faded into the memory books and reality struck.
To all the hard working DSS learners, all the best for the academic year at DSS. Serve with integrity.
