The pupil-body at DSG is heterogeneous, with a quarter of the girls coming from countries other than South Africa. The exchange programme is up and running with the school having twinned with four schools in three different countries. Each year, 12 girls from Grade 10 have been selected to take part in the school’s growing programme, going to schools in Australia, New Zealand and India.
The exchange programme is an important part of what we offer at DSG and gives girls the opportunity to learn about other cultures and grow from their global experience. Whilst only 12 girls travel overseas, they bring back their experiences to the school. Also all DSG girls will benefit when the exchange girls from the foreign schools come to South Africa to spend time with us at DSG.
