Technovation Challenge – Global Grand Prize  

After a year of training and hard work, a team of five girls from the DGS Programming Team was selected as one the 12 world finalists in the Technovation Challenge, a worldwide competition that encourages girls to identify a problem within their community and to address it by creating a mobile app and implementing a business plan.

The girls were invited to travel to Google's main campus in Mountain View, California, to pitch their app for the Grand Prize award during the week of 7th to 11th August 2017. Finally, their app Dementia Care Companion(DCC), an app which helps dementia patients and their family members, won the Grand Prize in the Junior Division. The girls were awarded gold medals and US $10,000 of scholarship. We praise God for the talents and achievements He has bestowed upon our School.

Together we experienced great success in making delicious bread and cakes through the study tour organised by the Technology & Living department. Sixteen students selected from members in the Food Technology Club and the Hospitality Committee together with the Headmistress and two teachers took lessons at the Ecole de Patisserie de Tokio, a famous culinary school in Tokyo, Japan.  Students were taught by renowned chefs to make bread and cakes, learning basic methods from dough-making to fine decoration processes. Skills employed in professional patisseries were demonstrated by the master chefs with great attention to detail. Furthermore, there were tours around local wet markets, supermarkets, food stores, fabric stores, book stores, department stores and craft shops which enabled us to learn more about food, crafts and fashion as well as Japanese culture.
