St John’s D.S.G. won the Senior Girls’ Relay Gala against some tough competition at the University of KwaZulu-Natal on Wednesday, 7 March. Also taking part in the gala were Pietermaritzburg Girls’ High School, Epworth School, St Anne’s Diocesan College and The Wykeham Collegiate. Mrs Cara Schirge, one of the St John’s D.S.G. swimming coaches, says, “ I could not be prouder of our swimming squad, who swam their hearts out, and encouraged and supported each other throughout the gala. We would also like to say a big thank you to our friends at the other KZN schools for the wonderfully competitive season of swimming.

There were a lot more sparkles and glitter than usual at St John’s D.S.G. Junior School on the Grade 1s’ annual Fairy Day – a much anticipated event on the St John’s D.S.G. calendar! Pictured (from left to right) is Gabriella Dickason (a stardust fairy), Ayabonga Makhathini (a flower fairy) and Zaiah Dennis (a butterfly fairy). The Grade 1s took great delight in seeing one another in their fairy outfits and it was a truly magical day.
