With a holistic approach to general health services at GDGWS that require both administrative and clinical judgement, an interdisciplinary team comes together to promote joint planning and sound decision-making in health-care at GDGWS.

Bringing together all aspects of school life, several departments cater to the general health of each student at GDGWS. This significantly impacts the students’ knowledge, values and attitudes towards a holistic and healthy life.

  • HEALTH EDUCATION: The values of discipline, safety and well-being set by the school address the physical, mental, emotional and social dimensions of health and are re-enforced daily by the teachers. Health and education professionals in the school community provide support to constantly improve school healthcare.
  • ACTIVITIES AND SPORTS EDUCATION: Our vibrant Activities programme boosts physical, mental and social development. While learning new skills in the Fine Arts, Sports and Community Service programmes, students build self-confidence, articulate their thoughts and ideas, develop physical strength and coordination and widen their perception and understanding of others. Each part of this holistic attitude to education contributes to a healthy approach to strengthening their bodies and minds.
