TERM 2 WHOLE SCHOOL ACADEMIC COACHING CONFERENCE DAY ON THURSDAY 27th June 2019

Thank you to all the parents who attended the first AC conference on 11/3/19; we had 70% of all parents attend. We are aiming for at least 75% at June’s conference. Our process provides every individual student with regular opportunities to discuss their academic goals with their academic coach. It is always more effective when you attend and further details will come soon. All students are encouraged and empowered to take responsibility for their own learning with the support of their subject teachers and their academic coach. Please encourage your daughter to talk with her teachers if she has any problems, actively listen to feedback and to review past reports. If you still have specific subject queries, please email your daughter’s subject teacher directly using our Parent Portal or school website. We are increasingly seeing the benefits of this holistic approach where the focus is less on isolated subjects and is more centred on the student who is at the true heart of what we do here at St Dominic’s Catholic College.

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.

“What’s great about St Dom’s is the people. We have the warmest, most considerate teachers I have ever met. Their passion for education and teaching reflects off them and causes a chain reaction of positivity within the classroom – Grace, Year 10 student

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
