It has been a busy start to 2017 at DHSB and we have many student stories to share with you. I am positive that this will be an exciting and successful year for our school community.
Congratulations to Robert Waddy and Mike Collingwood who have heard they have a Gold Award (top 50) in the national Physics Olympiad (A level). This is a significant achievement and we’re very proud of them both.
Rob and Mike are seen here leading an extra lunchtime Physics lesson with Year 12 students.
