28-30 August 2019 -- Secondary 1 Orientation Programme

 

The New Student Orientation programme, organised by the School with the help from The Boys' Brigade - Anchor House, was held in late August to help introduce new girls to our school’s ethos, culture and campus, and aims to foster friendships between new girls.

The programme included a two-day day camp, honing important life skills, disciplines, and values to our new Secondary 1 students through a series of icebreaking activities and games. At school, new girls were shown around the school campus, and visited booths set up by the full range of extra-curricular groups to learn about the activities on offer at our school. About 100 senior students volunteered as big sisters to our new girls, leading them in group and one-on-one activities to get to know them and help them acclimate to their new school life.

We wish our new students all the best as they start the new school year at DGS.

1 March 2019 -- Greater Bay Area Project Presentation Day

 

The school community gathered together on 1st March to see the culmination of the whole-school Greater Bay Area Research Project, organized to celebrate the 40th anniversary of China’s Reform and Opening Up and to deepen students’ understanding of the Greater Bay Area Initiative.

On the Greater Bay Area Project Presentation Day, students presented their findings over the past seven months in various groups. S1-S2 students showcased their hard work in the form of posters and videos in the Assembly Hall packed with colourful booths, while S3-S5 students reported their research findings through presentations to their peers.

Students and teachers from our sister schools, Guangzhou Zhixin High School, Zhuhai Number One High School and Macau Kao Yip Middle School collaborated with our students to present on topics ranging from education and conservation of water resources to urbanization. To close the night, Professor Li addressed the community, congratulating our students on their in-depth perspectives and praising their pioneering spirit in this Greater Bay Area venture. He encouraged all to look forward to the continual development of the region.
