Mrs. Rebecca Yip served as Headmistress of the Junior School for 10 years from September 1989 until her retirement in April 1999. She has had a long association with DGS, being a student herself at DGS from 1950 to 1956 and a teacher at the Junior School during the periods from 1958 to 1969, from 1979 to 1982, and from 1985 to 1989, respectively.

Mrs. Yip was much beloved and respected as a teacher and headmistress.   At her retirement in April 1999, the School's Parent-Teacher Association honoured her by dedicating a special shield in her name "The Mrs. Rebecca Yip Shield", to be awarded each year to a Primary 6 student who demonstrates a strong knowledge in Scriptures and embodies Christian virtues in her conduct and service to others.

Mrs. Yip has recently relocated to Canada with her family for her retirement.
