Dear Parents/Guardians,

Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,

We have an updated departure time of 8am tomorrow morning.  The Redline bus will leave promptly at this time, due to the carnival kicking off at 8:45am.  

If your child is unable to make it to school by 8am, they may be dropped by you straight to the Domain Athletics Centre by 8:45am.

The weather is looking promising - but please be prepared for all conditions!  The running sheet for the day has been posted on the Athletics Tasmania website.

The final event is scheduled for 4:30pm, so we should be finished shortly thereafter.  Please remember that there will not be a bus returning to school - your child must be collected from the venue.  Please note that this time is slightly different from the original letter - this is due to the revised running sheet for the day.

If you have any questions, please email nmillikan@dominic.tas.edu.au.

Please see the attached running sheet for the day.

3/4 Sports Day: Friday 6 September

Dear Parents / Guardians

 

Dominic will be hosting the annual Year 3/4 Sports Day on Friday 6 September 2019. It is a day that focuses on participation, fun, friendship among schools and skill development. Soccer (mixed), Tee-ball (mixed), Netball (girls) and Football (mixed) will be played on the day.  A round robin will be held in all sports, and a BBQ lunch will follow for all students participating. The teams for the day are attached.  If your son/daughter is not listed, please email nmillikan@dominic.tas.edu.au ASAP.  

 

The 3/4 Sports day has run for the last 12 years. Last year we had almost 400 students participating from 6 local schools! It was a great day and we are hoping this year will be even bigger and better!

 

Participation - We expect all students to participate in the event and students have chosen a sport with their class teachers.

 

Help Needed - We are desperate for coaches/supervisors for some of our teams!

We need your help to make this day a success! Helpers include coaches/supervisors and BBQ helpers. If you are available please email nmillikan@dominic.tas.edu.au. Coaches need not be experts – just very encouraging and able to rotate students throughout the games! The day commences at 9.45am and concludes around 1.30pm with a BBQ.

 

We really appreciate your assistance so thanks in advance if you can assist with our teams or on the BBQ.

If you have any questions please email nmillikan@dominic.tas.edu.au.

Year 7-10 Assessment Overview Term 3 2019

Email to parents re Goalsetting Day

Dear Parent/Guardians,​

Hopefully by now you will have received our letter detailing the Year 3-Year 10 Goal Setting Day we are having on the Monday 22 July 2019. If you have not received this letter, please contact our any of our offices immediately. K-2 teachers will work with Year 3-10 students, so K-2 students will not commence school in Term 3 until Tuesday 23 July 2019.

Just to clarify a few points in regards to parent queries.

  • 22 July is a student free day – students only attend for their goal setting appointment.
  • Students do not need to attend in school uniform.
  • Each student is to book only one time slot with the teacher specified on our initial letter to you. Every teacher has limited spaces available for the students listed for them, therefore there is no flexibility to see other teachers on this day.
  • If you want to see a specific teacher in relation to your son/daughter’s report, there will be Parent/Teacher Interviews held later in the term (29 - 30 July and 1 Aug for K-6 students and on Tuesday 6 August for 7-10 students).
  • Bookings for Goal Setting Day are made through the same system we use for Parent/Teacher Interviews – School Online Booking System (SOBS). These are now open.
  • When logging on to SOBS you need to select your child’s year level and then select the teacher you have been assigned.
  • Year 5 – Year 10 students are to bring a fully charged laptop to the appointment so they can enter their goals.
  • All students are to bring their school diaries to their goal setting appointment.
  • You only need to make one booking. 

Please note that Discovery will be running the holiday care program on Monday 22 July 2019 for our families.

We have been seeing the results of this endeavour and we look forward to implementing this valuable process with your son/daughter next Term.

Sincerely

 Andrew Pritchard, Director of Pastoral Care K-10

Goalsetting Day

The following email has gone home to parents:

The first day of Term 3, Monday 22 July, will be devoted to individual goal-setting appointments for all students in Year 3 to Year 10. Because we believe this process is important, the day will be a student-free day for K-10 students. K-2 teachers will work with Year 3-10 students, so K-2 students will not commence school in Term 3 until Tuesday 23 July 2019.

All Year 3-10 students have been allocated a teacher and will be asked to book in an appointment with that teacher.

Your son/daughter has been allocated a teacher to guide you both through this process, which will take around 25 minutes of the day.

This booking can be made now through SOBS. While we appreciate this may be difficult for some with work arrangements, we consider goal-setting an essential step on your daughter’s learning journey. We hope by giving you enough notice you will be able to make the necessary arrangements to enable your presence to support your child. If circumstances do not allow this, another family member as nominated by you, could be present instead.

Students from Year 5 – Year 10 are asked to bring their laptops to this appointment.

The goals set on this day will be reviewed at the end of Term 3 and Term 4 in their classroom with their class teacher or in their EMPOWER class.

We also look forward to welcoming you to Parent/Teacher Interviews which will be held on 29 July, 30 July and 1 August for K-6 students and on Tuesday 6 August for 7-10 students. The bookings for parent teacher interviews will open on Tuesday 23rd July.

We have been seeing the results of this endeavour and we look forward to implementing this valuable process with your daughter.

Yours sincerely
Beth Gilligan, Principal and Andrew Pritchard, Director of Pastoral Care K-10

Spam emails from Dominic College

Dear Families and Friends of Dominic College,

I hope this email finds you well. I am writing to inform you that last night and during the course of today, you and some of your children may have received email spam messages from what looked like members of our Dominic community.

Our IT Department have investigated the matter thoroughly and it appears that the spam emails originated from a university on the mainland and targeted several of our staff and students, which in turn, may have impacted you and members of your mailing list if you clicked the link in the email.

To ensure the safety everyone’s email security, our IT Department have actioned the following:

  • quarantined any accounts suspected of being hacked;
  • reset affected accounts and passwords;
  • blocked the sites generating the false emails.
  • Please be aware that this was not an issue just for us at Dominic, but has cascaded across Tasmania and other states over the past week throughout many schools and other organisations.

My thanks to everyone who quickly and promptly informed our staff of the false emails. The matter has now been rectified at a school level and we should experience no further issues. If you, your children or people on your mailing list receive similar emails, please ask them to delete the emails immediately and not to click on the links provided.

If you feel your child’s school account has been affected in anyway, please ask them to seek assistance from our IT Department as soon as possible located in the College Library.

I thank you for your continued support of Dominic College and wish you all the very best for the remainder of Term 2.

Yours sincerely,

P&F Mother's Day Stall

 2 May 2019

Dear Parents/Carers

Parents and Friends Mother’s Day Stall

Next Wednesday 8 May 2019, the Parents and Friends are running their annual Mother’s Day stall.  Students will have the opportunity throughout the day to visit the stall with their class to purchase a gift.  All gifts are $5 each.  Children are able to purchase more than one item. 

If students wish to purchase a gift, they need to bring $5 IN A NAMED ENVELOPE/SNAP LOCK BAG and give it to their teacher.  Teachers will distribute the money back to the children as they go to the stall.

We ask that for younger students purchasing more than one gift to write on the envelope or snap lock bag who the gifts are for so the P&F can direct children to the right tables.

If your child would like to take their gift home in a ‘shopping bag’ especially those purchasing multiple gifts, please also send along a reusable bag.

As always there will be some lovely gifts available for the students to choose from.

Kind regards,
