St George’s Diocesan School was founded on 8 July 1919. Situated on the mountains in central Windhoek, Namibia, the school belongs to the Anglican Diocese of Namibia. It started with 27 pupils and is one of the oldest educational institutions in the country.
The institution engages its pupils to participate in different cultural activities which inspire their imagination in many ways. As such, children partake in curriculum activities such as art, drama and music. The objective is to bring out the natural talent that is in each child.
The class music is combined in the daily school timetable. The lower primary (grade 1 – 3) attends music lessons for 30 minutes twice a week and the upper primary (grade 4 – 7) only once a week. These lessons familiarize pupils with basic elements of music such as reading and writing. Children are offered a platform to play percussion instruments as well as practicing how to play piano. In addition, children also discuss famous composers of the different classical eras.
St George’s Diocesan School has junior and senior choirs that practice twice a week. The choirs participate in many shows held in Windhoek. On 16 July 2014, St George’s Diocesan School and St Paul’s College received awards for the Best Overall Schools with the Best Science Fair Projects at the 26th Khomas Regional Science Fair (KRSF).
