C ommunity Engagement is an essential part of life at the DSG. We encourage our girls to recognise that as they give of their time and energy to others, there will be concomitant personal growth.
We give our girls the opportunity to engage with others and, in so doing, begin to see similarities and appreciate their differences. We believe that in reaching out to others, girls will learn they can have a positive effect on the school, the community and the nation. Regular outreach activities have included visiting residents of a local retirement home, helping at the SPCA and tutoring students who come from schools with limited resources.
DSG girls are also proactive in drawing attention to social issues. They have organised “shave-a-thons” in support of cancer awareness, fun runs and dance marathons to raise funds for charity and they regularly help with street collections.
