Sound the mighty Dominic praises

In early August, we celebrate with thanksgiving the life of our founder St Dominic de Guzman; born in Caluerega, Northern Spain, in 1170. After so many centuries, why is it that this humble but very self-motivated man has left such a mark on so many millions of Christians around the world?  Schools across Australia will, over the next week and a half, celebrate the life of St Dominic. Each one of our students will have, by the time they have completed their education in a Dominican school, their own answers about Dominic; a humble "Trail Blazer" for Christ.

St Dominic's Priory College will celebrate St Dominic's Day Mass on Tuesday 6 August; to be followed by St Dominic's Day Holiday on Friday 9 August.

In this Bulletin:

  • Our Year 11s have had a busy start to the term, with 19 students visiting the Nation's Capital and a further five participating in the Common Ground Conference; joining representatives from other Dominican schools in Adelaide.
  • As part of their Religion Unit on 'Care for Creation', Year 7s gathered in the Hall to raise awareness of the impact of fast fashion on our environment.
  • The Year 4 Class demonstrated their dedication and initiative, organising a bake and craft stall to raise money for the Primary Outdoor Classroom.  They raised a commendable $520 to help set up an outdoor reading space, games area and greenery.
  • Our Reception and Year 1s have been busy creating an interesting display highlighting all the different jobs our parent community are involved in (see picture).
