The DTHS Alumni Association has promised plenty of laughter, with skits that include mimics of past principals.

The concert is a part of the continued efforts by the DTHS Alumni Association to uplift life for current students of the institution.

Recent activities by the alumni association include the commemoration of the Linval Freeman Sports Centre with a renovated starter gym with new equipment, a multi-stakeholders conference for a development plan, helping in welfare support that helps to lessen the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on the students and technical support for online learning.
