It is a pleasure to welcome you to our website. The website
is designed to give you an overview of our school and to
keep you up to date with pupil achievements. We hope that
the content will provide a useful tool for all partners of our
school community, giving an insight into how our young
people are developing their education as well as acting as a
guide to the daily life of our school.

We value the close working relationships that we have built
between the school and our students, their families and
other partners to seek the best for our youngsters. If you
have any questions that you would like to discuss, please
do not hesitate to get in touch with me.

I look forward to working with you and your child.

DGS Xmas Choir Performs in Morrison's


The D.G.S Xmas Choir performed in Morrison’s from 10am – 3.45pm yesterday raising over £220 for our choir fund. We also had a sneaky wee busk at the Bandstand and outside of the Burgh Hall.

The choir, as always, sounded amazing and we heard excellent solos from some of our choir members. Chloe Honeyball and Billy Duncan performed a special set which was very well received and we also got our picture taken by the local paper. Read more
