What makes Diocesan School for Girls unique?

Our outstanding record of academic excellence is the culmination of a personalised approach to learning that challenges thinking, grows knowledge, develops meaningful relationships and inspires leadership in all students.

While we teach conceptual knowledge and understanding, it is not enough to ‘know’. We want our girls to have insight, to influence others, to show empathy and make a humane difference in the world.

Diocesan and its Founders have always considered education as a way of living. We believe that education is the art of human learning, a venture involving creativity, imagination and discovery with a focus on developing individual character, spiritual depth, discipline and resilience in our students. There is no single recipe to drive this vision other than an acute awareness of our changing world and heightened sensitivity to real world issues, contexts and challenges.

We believe that some of the most important - yet hard to measure - outcomes of education are the essence of a meaningful life. So we place the principles of humanity – empathy, truth, justice, integrity and human rights – at the very centre of our curriculum design.
