“At St Mary’s DSG, Pretoria we place a premium on the value of human dignity as one of the key features in our South African Constitution. We believe that each person has the right to enjoy the fullness of their humanity, exercise of freedom, and the protection of their rights. As a Christian school of Anglican faith, we are guided by the values and moral virtues of the Church.
We want to create a safe space for our learners, staff, and parents. A healthy environment that promotes equality, justice, guarantees freedom that comes with associated rights and responsibilities.
United in our diversity we seek to promote a culture of awareness, sensitivity, and the avoidance of causing deliberate harm and suffering to others through unfair treatment, prejudice, and discrimination.
The South African Constitution is the centre-piece of our Transformation-Diversity-Inclusion journey at St Mary’s DSG. We are driven by the desire to promote the culture of human rights, social justice, and Ubuntu. These are ideals that our school upholds and applies in serving the best interests of the child, promoting democratic practices, and respecting the dignity of others.
Ours is the never-ending journey of trial and error inspired by the school motto: If she believes, she can fly.”
