Rugby Workshop

Retired England rugby player, Katy Storie, visited DHS this week as part of the Sky Sports ‘Living for Sport’ programme. She inspired Year 7 with the story of her journey from childhood to the present day and encouraged the girls to chase their dreams. A practical session focussed on 'pressure, mental toughness and resilience', with the girls completing challenges highlighting different areas of performance and the inner-workings of a team. Thank you Katy for giving us such a great experience!

Success at Durham SBH this weekend!

Three of our Year 10 rowers enjoyed lots of success at the small boats head in Durham at the weekend. Jess Cooper and Honor Cessford won in the coxed quads (2 blades each) as well as in the coxless double – a particularly impressive feat since it was their first time rowing together as a pair. Meanwhile, Pardis Farahi rowed in the winning coxed 4. Well done girls!

Public Speaking Winners

Last night, Durham High School competed in the regional final of the English Speaking Union’s public speaking competition. Seven teams from Teesside to Morpeth competed in the event, hosted by DHS. The excellent standard gave the adjudicators a very difficult job: Laura Hunt, from The English Speaking Union commended every participant for holding the attention of an audience of over 60, with subjects ranging from GM food, the need for silence, compulsory RE, willingness to serve and how the media controls our thinking. The judges deliberated for over an hour before announcing the result - a team win for Durham High School for Girls. Libby Wright’s entertaining talk: "A little nonsense is relished by the wisest of men" (Roald Dahl) was very well received, as she urged the adults in the audience to add a little nonsense to their own lives to help relieve stress. Stella Bentley chaired with great flair, also winning the award for Best Chair of the evening, and Bolin Dai was commended for the insightful quality of her questioning.

The team now progresses to the next round in Leeds on 4th March and we wish the girls the best of luck!
