Enkuliso and Ekujabuleni

Through simple yet meaningful and creative projects, which support a host of worthy organisations, girls learn early on in their journey at DGC that caring for others is important. This can be seen in the legacy of many DGC Old Girls who have sought to make a difference in the lives of others. One example is the founding of the first nursery school and teacher’s training centre for black pupils and teachers in Kwa-Zulu Natal by the DGC Old Girls’ Guild in 1943. This conjoint nursery school and teachers training centre came to be known as Enkuliso. This was a courageous and progressive response to the needs of the dependents of black servicemen who fought in World War II. Another nursery school, named Ekujabuleni, was founded in 1956 to serve the community further. Both of these schools are still going strong and are supported in various ways throughout the year by DGC girls and the Old Girls’ Guild.
