  • A group of students represented DSTC at our first ever Swimming Gala in May. It was held at DGSFG and the students involved not only showed some amazing swimming skills, but also fantastic teamwork, encouragement, sportsmanship and attitude! They were an absolute credit to our school and thoroughly enjoyed the juice and biscuits we were given at the end of the gala. We attained some 1st placings from Erin, Leah, Olivia, Lara, Emilia and Navaeh; including the year 7 relay medley. We also had plenty of 2nd and 3rd placings too. We definitely have a few students who could potentially be half human half fish!!
