We have a fantastik Junior Primary, Senior Primary and a High school choir . We practice throughout the year to take part in a variety of events throughout the year.

Ons wissel elke jaar af tussen twee groot geleenthede – een jaar ‘n musiekproduksie en die ander jaar ‘n musiekaand. Tydens hierdie geleenthede wys ons ook ons solo-talent af.

Our most successful play was called “Ramahlahla and Julia” – a musical that was enjoyed by both learners and the audience. The choir allows learners to explore their creative side and to have great fun at the same time.


A debate is, basically, an argument. That is not to say that it is an undisciplined shouting match between parties that passionately believe in a particular point of view. In fact the opposite is true. Debating has strict rules of conduct and quite sophisticated arguing techniques and you will often be in a position where you will have to argue the opposite of what you believe in.

A debating program was started in 2010. We have a debating society meeting once a term for the first three terms of the year.

Ons neem deel aan debatte teen ander skole. Hier is jou kans om jou sê te sê!

Speaking your mind is the name of the game in this debating society!

The debating society at DNC consists of a number of dedicated and passionate members. Both our junior and senior teams fiercely compete in Regional and National competitions
