19-22 October 2021 -- Gospel Week & 10 November 2021 -- Harvest Festival


The Gospel Week was held from 19-22 October 2021, on the theme “It’s OK to be not OK: God is in control”. Through an original animation story of a two-legged fox, a skit dealing with questions of our purpose as students, as well as a worship session on songs of finding lasting joy in the Lord, the Youth Fellowship explored in three morning assemblies how God not only understands us in our anxieties and struggles, but also comes near to comfort, encourage, and point us to His good plan for us in Christ.

The Gospel Week culminated in the evangelistic meeting, held on Friday afternoon. Our recent graduate brought with her a team from Yan Fook Church, and also generously shared a moving testimony. Her sharing, as well as the songs and message from the team, resonated with many and reminded us of God’s unchanging faithfulness and loving pursuit of an intimate relationship with His children. 

Having reflected on God’s blessings in our lives throughout Gospel Week, the school came together a few weeks later to share in the joy of giving through the Harvest Festival on 10 November. In this much-loved event that was temporarily suspended in the last school year, students and staff alike joined together in donating food and money to the needy. During assembly, the Youth Fellowship sang a worship song on how God’s love can make an impact on our community, and displayed the food items on the Auditorium stage in celebration of the joy of sharing the provisions received from God.

30 September 2021 -- Parent Teacher Association Annual General Meeting

Parent Teacher Association Annual General Meeting (30 September 2021)

On 30 September 2021, parents and teachers joined via webinar to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the DGS Parent Teacher Association during the PTA Annual General Meeting (AGM), held in the new Artificial Intelligence (AI) Lab. Mrs. Christine Nip, Chairperson of the PTA, conducted the formal proceedings of the night and reported on the work of the PTA over the past academic year.

The Headmistresses of DGS and DGJS, Mrs. Stella Lau and Mrs. Annie Lee, then shared with parents how the School has continued to enrich teaching and learning despite the pandemic, with the support of the PTA. The junior school students created an inspiring video to describe their learning experiences through the five pillars of the DGS education. The two co-chairladies of the DGS Computer Club then conducted a live introduction of the AI Lab, with demonstrations of dancing robots and a drone swarm performance. 

The night closed with a poignant farewell to the School Supervisor, Mrs. Doris Ho, who would be retiring after the first term following 37 years of dedicated service to the school. The community also welcomed Ms. Benita Yu, longstanding member of the School Council and Chair of the Legal Sub-committee, to succeed Mrs. Ho. We look forward to another fruitful year of partnership to support the growth of our girls.
