Durban High School is proud to welcome Mr Steven La Marque, who has joined the staff body as the Director of Marketing, Director of Aquatics and Senior Discipline Officer.
Mr La Marque joins DHS from Glenwood High School and will be responsible for supervising the marketing department staff, talent identification and general recruitment, sponsorship procurement and management, overseeing marketing information evenings at Primary Schools and presentations at marketing functions.

Apart from his experience in the marketing field, Mr La Marque has also been involved in School Management, School Discipline, Event Management, and Sports Coaching in other sporting disciplines such as Water Polo, Rugby and Swimming. He has also served as a teacher at two top KZN schools, Glenwood High School and Maritzburg College.
In addition, we are delighted to announce that Mr La Marque has been appointed as National Head Coach of South African Water Polo.
His appointment is indeed tribute to his dedication to the sport, and to his wide experience in and knowledge of Water Polo. He served as the Director of Aquatics at Glenwood High and was responsible for the U15A team who took 1st place in the KZN Top 10 in 2014 as well as the 1st team which took 1st place in the KZN Top 10 in 2016. He was also the Head Coach of the Elite Water Polo Academy.
His achievements and important contribution in the broader sporting arena (and Water Polo in particular) include:
– Chairman Schools Water Polo South Africa – 1998-2004 / 2006- 2016
– Member of the Swim SA Water Polo Technical Committee – 2007- 2016
– Recipient of SWPSA Meritorious Service Award 2008
– Recipient of SWPSA Honorary Life Membership 2008
– South African Schools U19A Water Polo Coach (2003; 2006; 2007, 2015)
– Chairman Midlands Rugby Referee’s Society 2010 – 2011
– Executive Member KZN Rugby Union Referees Council 2009-2014
– 2015 Manager KZN U16 Rugby Grant Khomo Team
“To be appointed as the National Head Coach is truly an honour. Water Polo is a sport that I love and have been involved in for over 40 years as a player, coach, referee and administrator. I’m very fortunate to be taking over from Brad Rowe. The ground work and international networking that he has done will certainly make the transition somewhat easier. The task of restructuring the national coaching structures has already begun and we will launch the new National Coaching Strategy in the next few weeks,” comments Mr La Marque.
On the rare occasions where Mr La Marque has time off, he enjoys deep sea, rock and surf and trout and bass fishing as well as golf and off road motor bike riding.
Congratulations, Mr La Marque and welcome to Durban High School. We look forward to a long and happy association with you!
