School Improvement

Every school should be in a constant cycle of improvement. Dominic College is no exception. Getting better at what we do should always be our aim.

In 2013, the College invited Professor Geoff Masters, the CEO of the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER), to address our teachers on school improvement. Professor Masters outlined in his presentation a significant body of national and international research, on what highly effective schools are doing to promote improved classroom teaching and learning.

Professor Masters presented nine strategic domains that Dominic College and every school should note if we are committed to ensuring the best educational outcomes for our students. These are outlined in ACER’s National School Improvement Tool which Dominic College has adopted.

Whilst Dominic College is focused on all nine domains, our School Improvement Agenda is an articulation of three explicit improvements areas that are the school’s priorities.
