Membership of DHS Sports Teams

Apr 13, 2018

To view the ‘Student Participation in Sport and Membership of Dannevirke High School Sports Teams’ Policy No. 1/05 go to click on Sport and at the top of the page there is a link to click on.  

The Board of Trustees believes that sport is an important part of the lives of all young people.  However, it also believes that playing sport for Dannevirke High School is a privilege and with this are associated responsibilities.  However, it must be noted that playing sport is not a right and that other school obligations must be met in order to receive the privilege of playing sport.  These are outlined in the policy and will be adhered to.  

It is a requirement that students of Dannevirke High School play sport for the school first.  Dispensations will only be granted in special circumstances.  Sports clubs in the Dannevirke area are aware of this requirement and will be advised of any student who does receive a dispensation not to play sport for Dannevirke High School.  All parents/caregivers should be aware of this requirement before they allow their children to play sport for a non Dannevirke High School team.
