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


Holidays dates and planning ahead

It has been communicated a number of times that Dominic College cannot support nor approve the taking of holidays during term time. This is a legal mandate in the 2016 Education Act and has been put in place to ensure that sound academic progress can take place with students being present at school in all classes.

Opening College Mass

​Every year at Dominic College, we plan that the very first time we gather as a whole school community, that it will be in prayer. On Wednesday, 13 February, all students and staff (except Kindergarten) gathered in the Savio Centre to pray. Our focus was to give thanks to God for our College community and to ask God to guide us and watch over us throughout the year.
