Catholic Education Week 2019

This Sunday, 19 March, marks the commencement of Catholic Education Week in Tasmania. Next week is designated as a time to celebrate the achievements of Catholic schools. In particular for us, it is a time to honour the great educational legacy provided to us by the Salesians of Don Bosco and the Dominican Sisters who together, had the vision to establish Dominic College as the first coeducational Catholic secondary school in southern Tasmania in 1973.
