The College Principal reviews enrolment applications frequently throughout the calendar year.
If a place is available, applicants are interviewed by the College Principal or Deputy Principal.
Successful applicants will receive a formal letter of offer.
If the College is unable to offer a place the applicant will be put on a wait list. Applicants placed on the wait list will be notified of this and will be contacted by the College if a place becomes available.
The College is governed and administered in accordance with the traditions of the Salesians of Don Bosco. The College is a comprehensive, non-exclusive school with a non-competitive academic enrolment entry.
Enrolment at Dominic College is an invitation to parents to work in authentic partnership with the College to develop their children as young people of faith, in a Catholic community of friendship and in an environment committed to educational excellence.
Priority enrolment will be offered on the basis of the faith of the applicant and their family, on previous ties with the College, the family's relationship with the College and broader Church and in particular, the needs of the family, the applicant and the College.
- The College works with and shares the common goals of the local mission of the Catholic Church; enrolment principles and practices are therefore aligned to and congruent with the Archdiocese of Hobart Enrolment Policy and guidelines.
- Students will only be accepted into the College and the enrolment sustained if parents are prepared to actively support the life, ethos, identity, directions and policies of the College.
- The enrolment process is an opportunity for the College and families of applicants to discuss and reflect on mutual values.
- The selection of students will be made by the College in terms of the needs of the College, its ability to cater for the needs of prospective students and in compliance with relevant State and Federal legislation.
- The Catholic purpose and identity of the College promotes equity and accessibility to enrolment. The acceptance of applications from economically disadvantaged families will be dependent upon the capacity of the College to support the number of such families enrolled or making enrolment.
- In the event of transfer applications from other Catholic schools, parents will be made aware that consultation will occur between schools and transfer from their current Catholic school will be on the recommendation of the Principal of their school of origin.
- All enrolment applications must be supported by the relevant and requested documentation; and the acceptance of an application form will not guarantee an enrolment interview or an offer of enrolment, irrespective of the date of lodgement of the application.
- Enrolment will depend on a number of factors which may include the academic and social balance of the students currently enrolled, the gender ratio, availability of spaces, the ability of the College to provide a suitable pattern of studies, the capacity of parents and the student to support the ethos and expectations of the College.
- The Principal has the discretion to accept students as a matter of priority who are deemed to have special circumstances, especially those who are in some way disadvantaged or marginalised.
- Enrolment is ultimately at the discretion of the Principal; the College reserves the right to take into account the College's ability to serve the educational needs of each child applying for enrolment.
- Enrolment is subject to families accepting and fulfilling the Terms and Conditions of Enrolment at Dominic College.
