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
