Thursday, December 7 was a day that many students, former students and parents and grandparents of students at DVSS will remember for a long time.
The school hosted its annual Seniors Christmas Dinner for the 24th year in the gymnasium. A crowd estimated at between 350 - 400 seniors attended the free event.
The scratch made turkey and trimmings meal was cooked by the DVSS Food Services class, of which Mexico's Joseph Barrera is a member.
"This is my second year here and I really like the school, that's the reason that I'm here for the second year," he told 99.5 Drum FM. "I really like this (event) because you can talk to a lot of the older people and it's good for everybody here."
"They tell us stories about their lives and, for me, it's really good. I talk with the other people and we have different stories, different countries."
Co-chef and fellow Mexican international student Joshua Vareuas agreed.
"It's really nice, I like it, it's nice."
Thursday's dinner included principal Curtis Lapierre's now famous sticky date pudding with toffee sauce. It was catered by members of the student body, who also handled all of the entertainment.
