DSG Grahamstown opens new junior school

| September 5, 2012 | 1 Comment

In mid-June, the new junior school at the Diocesan School for Girls in Grahamstown, Eastern Cape, was officially opened. In her speech, headmistress Shelley Frayne said of the new addition, created by Port Elizabeth-based Hix Architects: “The face of education will change more in this decade than it has in the past 200 years. I believe that we have the infrastructure and the human resources to embrace that change.”

The new junior school, which has been under construction since early 2011, seeks to fulfil both the developmental needs of the young girls in its care and the expanding needs of the senior school pupils. The emphasis on free-flowing, open, light and airy spaces and on outdoor—indoor interactive learning will make it a stimulating place to learn. Its focus is the Learning Hub — a dual-purpose library and modern media centre.
