Big walk done and dusted
30 June 2019 | Education
For the 26th time children, parents, siblings, grandparents, family members and friends walked together to the benefit of the primary section and enjoyed an extraordinary day in nature.
Even before sunrise, the first visitors arrived to have breakfast and to warm up. Refreshments were also provided along the 14 km route: Oranges, water, warm beverages, ice cream and tasty rolls - and those who had no strength to continue could jump onto a taxi and drive to the next check point or the finish line.
One of this year's highlights – besides the picturesque hike through the beautiful scenery on farm Aris – was the relaxed get-together on the festive grounds after the walk where homemade cakes, steak rolls and drinks were the perfect way to end a special day together with members of the school community.
“This year, there were more adults accompanying the learners on the dusty route than before. I am very grateful that so many parents, godparents and friends set the school into motion for us on this year's Big Walk,” says DHPS Principal, Kristin Eichholz.
Such a major event would not have been possible without the commitment of many helping hands and the tireless commitment of dedicated parents, the school administration and sponsors.
The DHPS thanks all big and small helpers, visitors and hikers who once again made a significant contribution to the great success of this year's DHPS Big Walk.
