The College provides a series of key orientation and transition events to assist in the smooth transfer into the Dominic College community for new students. Information on these events are below and dates for these events can also be found on the College calendar.

We hosted 35 families at our successful recent Open Day, on Tuesday 12 March. They enjoyed special tours conducted by teachers and student leaders, learning more about the excellent variety of learning opportunities at Dominic College. Thank you to the students and staff who welcomed our prospective families.

Our Open Day culminated in over 150 people attending our Year 7 2020 Parent and Student session in the evening. Information about transition events and preparation was shared by staff and current Year 8 students, Noah and Halle, talked about what school was like for Year 7 students and shared some tips.

Year 7 2020 House Orientation Evening and Year 7 Orientation Day

Year 7 House Orientation Evening is an important Transition Event at Dominic College. This event assists students in transitioning into our 7-10 community. The first occasion is an evening orientation into their House family and the second is a full day of orientation to our 7-10 environment.

House Orientation Evening is held on Tuesday 29 October 2019. The event will commence at 7.00pm starting in the Savio Centre.

Following a brief information session students and parents will be divided into House groups on the evening with their new House Coordinator and the House Staff Team. They will learn about important information and aspects of the way we operate in order to be ready for a smooth entry into high school.

Students and parents will then have an opportunity to meet their Pastoral Teachers. The Pastoral Teacher acts as the first point of contact for both students and parents.
