News

Dominic College is a vibrant community of students, staff, families, old scholars and volunteers. We produce a weekly newsletter during term, usually available on a Friday afternoon, featuring a variety of reports and stories from staff and student leaders in areas of administration, teaching and learning, pastoral care and mission.

You'll find a selection of stories here, too, plus additional new items in between newsletters. Your contribution and news is always welcome - please email newsletter@dominic.tas.edu.au

Creative Arts Festival 2021

​The tradition of curating an exhibition of student work in tandem with Performing Arts events has been evolving over a number of years at Dominic College. On the one hand, it allows some work to be created specifically for this event, but most importantly, it provides us with an opportunity to offer a snapshot of the creative activity that is occurring on a day-to-day basis at the College.
