DHS offers a Mentorship Programme wherein a Grade 11 mentor is assigned to a small group of Grade 8 boys, who will be under their care and guidance for the year.   A mentor is a wise and trusted friend and guide.  Mentoring is a structured and trusting relationship that brings young people together with caring individuals who offer guidance, support and encouragement, aimed at developing the competence and character of the mentee.

Although peer mentoring often takes place in a school setting, the focus of mentoring is on building a relationship, not on academics.

Due to the similarity in age of peer mentors to their mentees, mentees might also feel more comfortable sharing concerns and problems with their mentors. This increases mentee access to appropriate support and resources during times of struggle.
