The annual Garden Fete will be held on 10th November 2013 (Sunday) from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Parents and especially, old boys are welcome to visit DBS on the day and support our boys who have put a lot of effort into making the event possible.
A free shuttle bus service for parents, students and visitors will be provided on that day. Please refer to the attachments for the shuttle bus service arrangements.
Only a very small number of parking spaces will be available on the whole day during the Garden Fete. Parking will not be provided on a rainy day. As the number of parking spaces is very limited, a long queue of vehicles using the school drive is expected whether these vehicles are to drop off passengers or to look for parking. The waiting time is usually at least 45 minutes based on past experience. Once the parking lots are full, drivers will be asked to leave the school drive (i.e. no waiting is allowed) to avoid over congesting the only exit in case of an emergency.
Therefore, parents and students are highly encouraged to take the shuttle bus or walk up the school either via the Main Drive from Argyle Street or via the Steps from Prince Edward Road to avoid delays. No matter which way you take, we look forward to seeing you all at the Garden Fete.
Immediately following the opening ceremony, there will be a Holy Communion Service in St Augustine's Chapel at 11:00am. As it is also Remembrance Sunday, the service will begin with a short act of remembrance of the old boys who gave their lives in the Second World War. In addition, the reunion of class '63 will be held at the same time. All are welcome to attend.
