Our 150th Celebrations

Our 150th

To our extended DSG family,

DSG celebrates its 150th this year in 2024, a milestone that we certainly look forward to celebrating.

View our  finalized itinerary for our Foundation Weekend here, and look out and our carefully curated and custom-designed memorabilia.

Whilst celebrating DSGs extraordinary 150 years, we must be cognizant of the importance of sustaining the school’s diversity and its unique offering that has grown from year to year. Our sisterhood sets us apart; our “magic formula” is our diversity, driven by potential rather than funding, and brings together girls from all walks of life, from neighbouring farms to over-border and beyond.  

It is our responsibility to maintain this incredible mix of girls and uphold the character and integrity of this much-loved school. As a result – theFuture Leaders Fund was born, which relies heavily on fundraising initiatives and the generosity of benefactors to allow young girls showing remarkable potential to attend DSG and ultimately gain access to a ‘world of opportunity’ regardless of financial challenges.

Although fundraising is not the principal objective of our celebrations, we hope that what we have planned will be successful on this front; no amount is too small – you too can make a difference.

So we would like to encourage our extended DSG community, in whichever way you can, to get involved and enthusiastically support the build-up to the school’s 150th and the celebrations that will take place from the 9th-12th May 2024. Together we can continue to build DSG’s legacy.
