President’s Award

W e believe that community service is an important part of a girl’s formation and at DSG we have an expansive community service programme.

The DSG subscribes to the President’s Award programme, the purpose of which is to encourage young people to become active within their communities.


The President’s Award, part of the international Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, focuses on empowerment of youth through individual challenges and development. The programme encourages every young person to reflect upon their interests, abilities and ambitions and set themselves challenges in the four sections of the Award: community service, adventurous journey, skills development and physical recreation. It is open to young people between the ages of 14 and 24.
