Sabina from Danville Park Girls’ High School is riding the wave of success in her favourite sport, Surfski, after being selected for the SA Schools team recently. Sabina has achieved in all codes of this challenging sport, paddling on open water and braving the elements against contestants older than her tender 15 years. Some of her achievements this year include winning the KZN Sprints U16 in single and double kayaks over various distances. She then went on to win SA Schools Sprints in singles (U16) as well as taking first in doubles (1000m). At marathon level, she paddled her way to first position in singles at the KZN Marathon and SA Marathon. Sabina came second at the KZN Marathon (U18) doubles and what made this even more specials is this was achieved with her paddling partner, another Danville girl, Emma.

A beautiful winters morning in Durban was the picture-perfect backdrop to Danville Park Girls’ High School’s second ‘Art in the Quad’. Visitors were treated to outstanding art from professional artists exhibiting alongside the school’s budding artists while listening to inspiring music and singing performances. There was also an opportunity for some ‘retail therapy’ to buy art, photographs, crafts, coffee and tantalising food. The event ended with the screening of Danville’s very first movie, produced by a Danville teacher with the school’s girls and teachers as the actors.
