Principal’s Welcome

St. Dominic’s School is a Child Safe School. We have a zero tolerance policy to child abuse and value the safety, wellbeing and inclusion of all students entrusted to our care. All staff and visitors are expected to work together to keep children safe against sexual, physical, psychological and emotional abuse or neglect.

It is an absolute honour to welcome you all to the richly diverse learning community that is St. Dominic’s School. As a Catholic school community, we are very aware of the challenges faced by many in our community. Our motto ‘Let Your Light Shine’ reflects the Gospel centered values of making a difference in the lives of those we meet and being the face of Christ in the world, as we respond with an open heart.  The invitation is to journey with one another, and to be Christ like in all we do.

We model, share and celebrate in the Catholic tradition. We  recognise and embrace the importance and significance of  religious traditions  and the richness of our cultural diversity. We aspire to create a safe, welcoming, inclusive, challenging and supportive environment where students, staff, parents and the wider parish are all active partners in our unique journey as life-long learners. We acknowledge and accept the ongoing responsibility to develop ourselves as a community of leaders through the spiritual, educational, social, emotional and physical growth of each individual.

Our staff are committed to providing our students with quality teaching and learning experiences, unconditional care and a love of learning so that all members of the community can live a ‘life fully lived.’
