Fundraising

Dear Parents,

One of the best things about DSW is the personal involvement and commitment of our community in everyday school life, be it through voluntarism or philanthropy. DSW is a non-profit school and you pay a lot of tuition every year to cover the basic cost of running the school (e.g. salaries, maintenance costs). It might seem like a lot to ask for you to make additional donations, but please think about it in another way. Your participation in fundraising programs like the ones below is the icing on the cake and gives your child’s education the cutting edge. Why settle for less, when our students can have more with little to no effort? This year, we can do even better! Read here how you can effortlessly help our school at no extra cost for you. We thank you for your support!
