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

Year 10 students are disappointed to advise that Friday night’s Trivia Quiz event has been postponed due to insufficient prior bookings. Although support was growing, bookings did not meet the minimum advanced ticket sales necessary to meet the required deposits for catering and support.

Cagliero Immersion 2019

At the end of June, I began my Cambodian immersion. In total I spent 10 days in Don Bosco Technical School (DBTS) in Phnom Penh and the other four days in Siem Reap. Our trip focused on the charism of the Salesians and St John Bosco, service of the young. We did not build a classroom, rather we spent time with the youth of DBTS to learn about them and their day-to-day life, their struggles and aspirations, and to have fun and dance with them a lot!
