Our Transformation and Diversity staff and pupil policies can be found below. Listed with them is our Community Agreement which is an invitation to all members of the DSG community to commit to values and behaviours that allow all people from all different walks of life to feel a sense of belonging in this community.
#TransformationTuesdays is a DSG initiative which serves to bring the Community Agreement to life through the real life stories and perspectives of members of our DSG Community. The series explores values that ensure a continuous process of learning and unlearning that allows all members of our community to feel a sense of belonging.
The Old Girls’ Transformation Advisory Group (TAG)
The Transformation Advisory Group (TAG) was established in June 2020 as a result of the forums the school held with Old Girls around racism and discrimination. TAG serves as a body that represents DSG Old Girls’ concerns where transformation and diversity at DSG are concerned.
The Guardian Anonymous Reporting App
After extensive research and trialing an alternative app, we decided to introduce the Guardian Anonymous Reporting App into the school. This app is a tool for learners, staff or parents to report any issues concerning them. The default is that the report is anonymous, but reporters may disclose their identity if they choose to.
DSG Transformation and Diversity Committee Structure
Transformation and Diversity Structures: The T&D Structures consist of a partnership between the DSG Old Girls’ Transformation Advisory Group (TAG), senior members of staff who represent all areas of the school as well as an independent facilitator, counselling psychologist Nqobile Msomi.
