Extra Curricular Activities

Extracurricular activities provide a channel for reinforcing the lessons learned in the classroom, offering students the opportunity to apply academic skills in a real-world context, and are thus considered part of a well-rounded education.

DGPS students are encouraged to participate in various co-curricular activities which fuel their learning by stimulating creative thought, improving their social and organizational skills, developing their interests and talents, and offering them the chance to switch off and do something they really enjoy.
