Our Special Character 

St Dominic’s is committed to creating a caring and supportive environment where each student can feel special, loved, understood and appreciated and which emphasizes excellence in academic learning, personal development and involvement in the community.

Academic Programmes

Our restricted maximum roll number means that we are small enough to care but large enough to challenge and provide a well-rounded education which ensures that our girls are equipped with the learning skills and knowledge that will prepare them for the future.

A full, stimulating and relevant curriculum is offered for all students.

A Message from our Principal

Dear parents and caregivers,
As we travel through the season of Advent, and realise symbols such as Advent wreaths are appearing, I invite you to look back over the year to recognise the blessings your family has received and give thanks. Advent is also a time to look back at what might need to be changed in our lives, the clutter that blocks us from seeing the good all about us and the fear or resentment that call for healing. In this way we can prepare our hearts to receive Jesus into our midst at Christmas.
God’s blessing to you and your families.
Carol Coddington

Rich Tradition of Learning and Achievement

Our students enjoy a high rate of success in national examinations and, later, at tertiary institutions. 
St Dominic’s offers a rich curriculum which ensures that there is opportunity for students to develop their academic, spiritual, cultural and physical potential.

We believe (and research confirms) that girls can more easily reach their full potential in a single sex school. A Gifted and Talented programme is offered for those girls identified as likely to benefit from additional extension and challenge.

Students Receive Individualised Assistance in Their Studies

All our students have their own academic coach from Year 7 through to Year 13 to advise on goal setting, review progress and to assist in determining the next steps required to continue the student’s academic achievement.

Learning support is available for any students needing a helping hand to build the capacities needed to achieve in the future.

Confidence Building Leadership Opportunities

At St Dominic’s we recognise the value of developing each student’s confidence to be a part of a team and to play their part as a leader.

Many leadership opportunities exist with each form class having a class captain, environmental captain, arts captain and sports captain while roles are also available as Peer Mediators, Ambassadors, Body Image Leaders and Eucharistic Ministers to name but a few.

We greatly appreciate the positive impact the College has had on each one of our four  daughters personal and educational journeys!" - Wendy, parent
“I really like the international friendships I can make here. Through my school years I have made friends from a variety of different cultural backgrounds. We also have the opportunity to study a range of subjects in all four areas, academic, sports, the arts and cultural – Alicia, Year 10 student
