The Hillcrest Christian Academy Grade 6 class made their annual visit to KSB Mission with the purpose of learning about new cultures, community living and a number of other issues. On 9 September they joined DSS for the morning assembly. This time though, they brought along two reptiles. The one snake was introduced to the school during the assembly which very much brought alive the story of the serpent in the Garden of Eden! The learners were allowed to handle the two snakes under the watchful eye of Timothy, the snake handler. Needless to say, it was a first for many!

The June 2010 Award Assembly was a little different to the usual term end assemblies. A past pupil, Ruth Combrink, took the devotion. The Grade 5 & 6 boys performed a Speed stacks demonstration for the audience. The South African flag took on a whole new gospel meaning. The learners who had performed so well in the winter sport competitions were awarded. The winners of the DSS Soccer World Cup, France and Chile, were awarded. Lastly, we bid a fond farewell to Dr Stott who has left on post graduate studies.
