Archbishop’s Charter

Archbishop's Charter

In 2021 Archbishop Julian Porteous, after wide consultation within Catholic Education, promulgated a new ‘Archbishop’s Charter for Catholic Schools’. This follows the original Charter prepared under the direction of Archbishop Adrian Doyle in 2008. The Charter gives guidance to all involved in Catholic Education in the Archdiocese of Hobart.

The Charter has four domains:

Catholic Identity




Each Catholic school was required to give a response to the Charter reflecting the way in which the school community would implement the Charter within their individual and local context and according to the particular charism of the school.

The document Response to the Archbishop’s Charter outlines the key ways in which Dominic College will live out the four domains of this Charter.
