DHS Music and Drama wrap up “The Music Man”

Scene from "The Music Man"(view picture gallery or slideshow)

With Saturday nights performance, the DHS Drama and Music groups finished off a successful three show run of their production of "The Music Man".

The show was months in the making, and the hard work and dedication of the actors, musicians and crew showed in the performance. Three appreciative crowds filled the Gordon Wood Auditorium to take in the story of a smooth talking travelling salesman who arrives in River City, Iowa with the promise of a boy's band.

The actors and musicians have earned a well deserved rest. We look forward to your next production!

DHS thanks all involved students and staff for their efforts.

DHS Students Show off their Technology Skills

Jory Smale was one of five DHS students who participated in the Regional Skills Competition in Thunder Bay this weekend.

(view event pics here)

A group of DHS students were in Thunder Bay on the weekend to participate in the regional qualifier for the Ontario Technological Skills Competition.

The Skills Canada competition had students competing in a variety of areas, including TV and Video Production, Carpentry, Welding, Culinary Arts and Small Motors. DHS students participated in the TV/Video and Carpentry challenges.

In TV and Video Production, students were asked to create a 30 second commercial with an anti-bullying message. Josh Walker and Calvin Murray earned a second place finish for their video.

In Carpentry, students were given materials and a blueprint for a doghouse, which they had to complete in the allotted time. DHS student Tyler Ormerod finished in second place. Jory Smale received a certificate for earning a mark of over 75%. Brandon St. Laurent also competed for DHS.

Josh Walker, Calvin Murray and Tyler Ormerod have qualified to compete in the Provincial championship next month in Waterloo.

Great work! DHS is proud of your excellent skills.
