Academic Development Programme - ADP
The Academic Development Programme (ADP) of DGHS is a facility that provides a venue and an environment in which learners can do homework and study after school. Supervisors are present to check homework, motivate learners and encourage their extra-curricular involvement. To ensure that our learners work to the best of their ability and use their time wisely, they are encouraged to complete their written homework, do online research, study for tests and read their library books during this time in a controlled setting. The Victor Daitz Wing is the venue for ADP and registration forms are available from firstname.lastname@example.org.
