Staff

"A passionate staff makes for inspired girls"

The unique educational journey of each DGC girl is moulded and transformed by the unique educational journey of her teachers. The DGC staff members are experts in their teaching areas, and are dedicated to maintaining the high standard of education that Durban Girls’ College prides itself on.

Our staff understands that every girl is unique, and so aims to offer each girl that attends our school a tailored education that develops her individuality. A passionate staff makes for inspired girls, and so our staff members enthusiastically encourage our girls to explore their interests, embrace new challenges, and strive to realise their true potential in all aspects of life.
