In the first term we ran a times table intervention program on Fridays for the last month of the term for the senior phase learners. The learners had to spend a minimum of one hour per week practicing their times tables, using a computer program. After this, each learner was tested individually, using an electronic test which required learners to give each answer in under 5 seconds. 39 learners scored 95% or higher on this test. These learners participated in the verbal round, held in the last week of school, from which three winners were identified. These were: Micaela Joosten (3rd), Estelle Pretorius (2nd) and Benjamin Hlongwane (1st).

DSS is in the very wet summer region of KZN. Summer = rain = muddy roads = potholes. Potholers are learners who are elected to fill the potholes that are an inevitable part of summer at school. In addition to performing a service to the school, these boys are also learning that work does not only involve the muscles that push pens but also those that push wheelbarrows.
