‘For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo.’
I can thoroughly recommend our production of Romeo and Juliet which has moments of both woe and comedy.
There are just a few tickets left for tonight’s performance and doors will open at 7.10pm.
Many thanks to everyone involved, especially Harry Samuels, Ms Davarian, Ms Moreton and Mr Hardie who have put so much into staging this fantastic production.
Unusually there were muted celebrations this week when our 1st XI took the Devon Wednesday League title.
The team has won 13/13 matches this year and is looking to be named ‘The Invicibles’ by maintaining this unbroken record for all 14 games in the season.
The final match is at home on Wednesday afternoon v Lipson. Make sure you’re following the team’s progress on Twitter (@dhsboys). I’m sure they will welcome your messages of support.
Congratulations to Finn O’Donnell 11E who competed at the English Tae Kwon Do championships last weekend. Finn took silver in the Cadet Sparring and Fighting Class.
Well done also to Jackson Spry 7S who represented the Southwest in the underwater hockey (octopush) regional finals in Newport.
Jackson was vice captain of the team which took gold after winning all eight games.

Year 8 West Devon Champs
Last Friday the Year 8 rugby team travelled to King George playing fields in Elburton to take part in the West Devon Schools Festival. There were nine teams in total and we were drawn against Heles, Coombe Dean and All Saints in the first round of fixtures. We had convincing wins against all three schools and went through to the Cup competition as group winners along with Coombe Dean, St Boniface and Plymstock. In the Cup competition we completed three very good wins which crowned us as the overall winners of the festival.
Not only was this a fantastic achievement but it was also brilliant to end the day undefeated and without conceding a single try. The team now progress to the Devon Festival where they will be hoping to match the success of the Year 7 team who won this event last week. Mr Bunney
The 54th English Schools Cross Country Championships took place last weekend at Donington Park Leicestershire, writes. This prestigious event involves the top endurance school age endurance athletes from around the country. Many future international athletes start their careers at these national championships with previous winners including Mo Farah and Paula Radcliffe.
This year DHSB had four representatives competing in the red vests of Devon. James Best and Jim Blackford ran in the senior boy’s race with Tom Blackford and Jack Williams represented the county at the intermediate event. All four DHSB pupils worked incredibly hard during their races and enjoyed the experience of competing against the best Cross Country runners in England.
Their overall positions were as follows-
Jim Blackford 92nd out of 314
James Best 104th out of 314
Tom Blackford 178th out of 327
Jack Williams 299th out of 327
Well done to one and all, a fantastic achievement. Mr Strang
