Students Representative Council (SRC)

WE are YOUR Voice!

Fun, good teamwork and professionalism: A lot can be learned at the Students Representative Council, but above all it is great pleasure to participate in organizing various events.

The SRC’s main objective is to represent learners and to take their requests into consideration in our activities and to implement them in our projects.

These projects are very versatile: e.g. we initiated the drinking fountain at the primary section school grounds.

In general, we are open for questions and new ideas and cooperate with school management, administration, teachers and of course with you, all the learners.

Get to know our SRC members!


"I am proud to represent my school and will always be there for my fellow students. Dreams and dedication are a powerful combination."

(Carissa, DHPS Head Girl 2018/19)

"There is always room for improvement and one should never say no to it. Before running for an SMV, my goal has always been to bring everyone together as a unit. I believe in hard work as well as teamwork makes dream work. Becoming Head boy of DHPS wasn’t just a big honour but also the opportunity to be part of the great rise of the DHPS."
(Hilton, DHPS Head Boy 2018/19)

Parent Representative Council

Parent Representative Council

Actively contributing in school

Welcome to the DHPS Parents Representative Council (PRC)

Creativity and dedication, along with a little spare time and the pleasure to commit oneself for others, often are the first steps to participation in the PRC.

We support parents in all situations, are the link between them and the school and act as “messenger”in all matters of concern.

Over and over again we are enthused about the great involvement parents are granted - certainly this is exercised at the DHPS far more actively than in many other schools.

Who are we?

As parents of DHPS learners it is important to us to encourage the school in its dedicated, multi-cultural, diverse and dynamic character.

In addition to the task as a liaison between parents and learners on the one hand and the school management and school board on the other, we are involved in many other areas of school life - naturally always to the benefit of our and your children.

DHPS - Learner Sponsorships

Path the way for a successful future for our learners

Due to its diverse cultural- and linguistic scene and the great social contrasts, Namibia’s educational sector sets an exceptional example: Limited financial resources impede the promotion of talented, motivated learners from less affluent families.

The DHPS endeavors to facilitate optimal education to all, regardless of linguistic, cultural, religious or social background.

We accommodate various learners from low-income families.
The DHPS-funding model provides a unique way for these learners to perceive excellent educational opportunities.

Be a Patron!

Become a patron and support our learners:
Active patrons are informed on the academic progress of their beneficiaries and are invited to share in their (school) life.
Likewise, once-off support or emergency donations secure a significant part of a learner’s financial burden.

Do you wish to support a learner by being a patron or by a one-time donation to our assistance fund?
We appreciate your support and the consequential opportunity for our learners.

What our patrons say...

"As a former DHPS learner, who spent 13 years at this German school in Windhoek and graduated in 1965, it is of special importance for me to support a learner and enable her to visit this school. My husband and I wish our godchild all the best and a lot of joy at school."
(Ruth Peinsipp geb. Menzel, DHPS learner patron)

To enable a girl to access good education is a small but important contribution to promoting women in Namibia as they still bear a great burden in this country."
(Andreas Herbig, DHPS learner patron)
