Danebank An Anglican School for Girls

About Danebank

That Danebank is the leading Christian girls school in St George and Sutherland Shire is borne out by the fact that it is the region's top-performing non-selective school in HSC rankings.

Our integrated, holistic approach to education and student development encourages and empowers our girls to flourish academically, socially and personally.

Girls are empowered to develop their natural gifts and explore new opportunities. They are encouraged to strive for their best, develop confidence in their own abilities, model integrity and serve the wider community. Our girls express a strong sense of belonging to their friends and their school.

A school of choice for girls, Danebank's teaching and learning value innovation and promote positive relationships and learning experiences.

Danebank girls express their gifts and talents unencumbered by any gender restrictions. They study Physics and high levels of Mathematics. They are school leaders, performers and artists. They are experts in technology. They can hit a home run. They can play the drums.

The Pre-K Program

Pre-Kindergarten is the official year of entry into Danebank’s Junior School. Danebank’s Pre-Kinder program uses play along with an understanding of little girls’ natural curiosity and sense of fun to enable them to explore and look at things in a new light, thoroughly preparing them for Kindergarten.

Our Pre-K girls are learning all the time, without even being aware of it. They are learning to socialise and develop new friendships, and gain the necessary skills and independence to be able to go to “big school”. They play and explore non-stop, while being encouraged to think, observe, identify and differentiate.

Junior School

Danebank Junior School is a happy, safe and vibrant learning environment with many and varied activities that engage and develop students’ keen minds. Teaching staff are committed to the development of each individual student. Teachers work in collaboration with families in pursuit of the best outcomes for each student so that each girl may reach her potential in all areas, academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually.

Our students develop confidence and resilience because they experience an educational journey filled with amazing challenges, guidance of outstanding educators, where they discover their personal strengths in an individually supportive environment. They are asked to be sensitive to the needs of others and to offer assistance to those less fortunate in the wider world.
