"Home away from home!"
Due to the vastness of our country, many children who wish to attend the DHPS aren’t able to commute between home and school. Children living in other towns, on farms or in rural areas find a home away from home at the DHPS boarding school.
At the hostel we provide a regular daily routine, clear structures, regular meals, a strong sense of community. Living and learning together and a variety of leisure activities determine the everyday life of the DHPS hostel.
But see for yourself...
Who we are:
The staff of the DHPS Hostel are qualified educators that provide professional care around the clock and offer an open ear for the learners’ issues.
“There is this one place where I have 70 different siblings of different age and culture but hearts quite the same. With 5 different mothers, each with the same aim: To love and nurture me through ups and downs alike. It’s not my farm nor is it my home. But my home away from home: The boarding school. Year by year some come and go… But memories remain for life.” (Grade 11 learner at DHPS boarding school)
“The hostel is like a big family where you learn fairness and competitiveness and the acceptance of many different cultures, values and beliefs.” (Ulrike Behring, Head of the DHPS boarding school)
“We have a closely knit social structure. There is always support to help uplift those who are having a difficult time. You are never alone!” (Almuth Schwarting, boarding school educator)
