Crowning Winter in Wonderland

On 27 June 2019, the Student Representative Committee (SRC) hosted the Mr & Miss DHPS contest with the theme Winter Wonderland. The contest was opened with a dance number by all the contestants. It was all about the participants presenting themselves to the judges with their wonderful personalities and brains to answer their critical questions as well as walking the catwalk with talent and elegance. It was one of the most successful SRC events thus far.

The event that was held in the school auditorium was well attended. It truly was a winter wonderland with snowy white streamers, tables and flower decorations. The presenters of the show were Penda Shikwambi, the school headboy, and Konstantin Schindler, an SRC member. The final contestants were Beatrice Maasdorp, Umuna Muetudhana, Dennis Horstmann, Megan Platt, Damian Ham, Saskia Piehl, Peka Karamata, Camilla Olivotto, Devlin Constable, Ranicia Louw and Jo-Mari Pokolo. As they walked the runway the audience was told something about each contestant for example their hobbies, life mottos and what they would do if they win. A panel of judges - Tina Crüeys (DHPS Public Relations), Fortune (former student), Jörg Rapp (teacher), Jacky van Vuuren (teacher and fashion designer) and Ashraf - did the judging for the evening. After the judge’s introduction, a beautiful aerial gymnastics performance was given by Michelle Starke and Katja Stubenrauch. While showing their talents on stage in warm winter outfits, the contestants told the audience what they would do with their winnings and which organisations they would support. Some of the organisations mentioned were the Cancer Association, SOS Children’s Village, the Okanti Foundation, and many more.

The next performance of the evening was by Prime-Rose Harases who sang “Love me like you do” (originally by Ellie Goulding) and “Love on the brain” (by Rihanna). Prime-Rose had the crowd engrossed with everyone cheering and singing along. She received a standing ovation. Next on the agenda was contestants strutting their stuff in formal wear. Each contestant had a partner that walked with them. All the ladies were utterly stunning and the gentleman dashing in their suits.

They then had to face the judges that asked a series of questions. The contestants gave logical and well-thought-out answers. After the questioning session a mixture of contemporary, ballet and acrobatics performances were given by the very talented Shayna Schütte and Prime-Rose performed her last piece for the evening by singing “Don’t let me down” (by The Chainsmokers featuring Daya).

The surprise of the evening were the hosts walking the catwalk together to see who the best model was. While the judges were deciding on the winner George, Umuna and Peka gave a spontaneous dance performance.

Finally Penda and Konstantin started to announce the winners
