For a period of just over a week, around 70 DGS choristers, accompanied by teachers and Old Girls, travelled to the African continent to participate in the World Choir Games, the largest international choir competition held biannually at different venues around the globe. This year's event was hosted in Tshwane, the administrative capital of South Africa. The week-long event comprised activities ranging from Friendship Concerts at the Choir Village to masterclasses with world renowned choral directors: it was a beautiful occasion for music-making and cultural exchange; and it was not rare to hear choirs from around the world singing for each other at the catering centre!

Our girls' choir participated in the category of Youth Choir of Equal Voices, capturing the Championship and the Gold Medal with a score of 95. We joined the choir from Diocesan Boys' School to participate in the Mixed Choir competition, where we captured the second Champion title and Gold Medal.

We give thanks for the many blessings dowered upon us by our Lord. May we continue to serve our community with faith in the coming days.
