The Diocesan School for Girls’ Junior School lays the foundation on which DSG girls’ school careers are built. It is within the walls of this warm, friendly, caring place that the girls start developing the academic tools they will need to see them through to Matric; the enjoyment of sport and an understanding of the sporting code of conduct that they need during competition; the love of the creative arts that may propel them into great expertise; a commitment to service in the wider community; and the social skills required for strong relationships and team work. By the time a DSG Junior girl leaves us, she will be a strong, confident, resilient girl, ready to take on all the challenges of her Senior School career. She will also be humble and concerned for the well-being of others, ready to help and serve wherever she finds a need to do so.
