Our College

Welcome to Dominic College. We are a co-educational Kindergarten to Year 10 College, conducted by the Salesians of Don Bosco. In Hobart, Tasmania, the College is located on a spacious site in Tolosa Street, Glenorchy, nestled in the foothills of Mount Wellington.

A comprehensive, independent, Catholic school, we are focused on innovative and creative learning that supports individual student growth.

Our founder, Don Bosco, was a visionary 19th century priest and educator, who believed that relationships were at the heart of shaping young people. Contemporary educational research now supports this: the relationship between teacher and learner is one of the most important factors in achieving educational outcomes.

At Dominic we invest a great deal in developing this relationship. Dynamic teachers work with students in developing quality engagement in learning. Old Scholars of Dominic speak of three things they valued most about the College: the quality staff who cared about them; their diverse learning opportunities and experiences and the life-long friendships they made through our school.

Don Bosco worked tirelessly for his students to become good Christians and honest citizens. We continue this commitment of developing a belief in God's presence and goodness in our lives, and the call for all to be exemplary local and global citizens.
