Pastoral Care

The DSG Junior School offers an environment within which every girl can express her own individual identity. At the heart of our school is a Christian ethos that is built on the commandment to love one another and to do unto others as we would have done to us. Our aim is to recognise and encourage a girl’s abilities, challenge her development along constructive and creative lines and nurture an enquiring mind.
We aim to nurture and support girls in every facet of their lives, physically, spiritually, emotionally and academically.

The school Sanatorium is staffed by two qualified nursing sisters and a General Practitioner who visits the school every week day. Arrangements are made for visits to specialists, dentists, radiographers and physiotherapists.
