2017

The House System maintains the traditions of the school, consolidates our school community, continues to develop students' individuality and to make a different for all. 

Our aim with these competitions is to support one another, value individual strengths and talents and foster a culture of involvement, diversity, mutual respect and consideration. 

Since January 2015, everyone has been given the opportunity to wear a House badge with pride.  Its outer rim identifies the membership to their year group which also matches the colour of their planner.  Students keep these badges throughout their time at DGGS and have the opportunity to buy a replacement badge at any time.

Many cross-curricular competitions have been offered these last 3 years on top of all our sports and culinary competitions.  Our photography, Harvest, Christmas and Easter themes based as well as talent competitions to name a few have been very popular indeed.
