In any week there is much to observe, enjoy and participate in, wherever students are making the most of each day. That is certainly our experience at St. Dominic's.
Yesterday, we participated in a beautiful Mass for the Feast of St. Dominic. Our guests from Blackfriars, St. Mary's and Cabra took part in it also. The theme: "Love has no Boundaries", was explored in the words of Jesus in the Gospel of the Good Samaritan, in the commentaries, the music, the reflections, and in the art work to which every student in the college contributed. The day ended with the distribution of the black and white sweets!
To come, is Friday's annual holiday in honour of our patron saint. Thank you St. Dominic.
We congratulate the two St Dominic's Priory College teams who placed second and third in the 2017 Aurecon Bridge Building competition.
There is an excellent article by a Year 12 student, chosen as a South Australian Youth Parliamentarian in a program run by the YMCA which aims to connect politicians and decision makers with youth voices and opinions, as well as providing youth leadership training.
20 Year 11 students have returned from Canberra and we feature the highlights of their visit. The Australian Government recognises the importance of all young Australians being able to visit the national capital and has provided a $60 rebate per student as part of its Parliament and Civics Education Rebate program.
