Sound the mighty Dominic praises

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).

Upcoming Dates

  • Parents & Friends Meeting is TONIGHT, Wednesday 31 July, followed immediately thereafter by the Fete Committee Meeting
  • School Photo Day is Thursday 1 August.  Full Winter Uniform is to be worn.  Students are reminded to bring their envelope, to hand to the photographer.
  • St Dominic's Day Mass is 11:30am Tuesday 6 August.

Term 3, Week 1: Let the Fete Appeals begin!

Term 3 has a distinctly Domincan flavour, with celebrations of our Patron to be held here at St Dominic's Priory College, St Mary's College, Cabra Dominican College, and Blackfriars Priory School. 

This week, we farewelled a party of Year 11s as they left to visit the nation's capital, the Year 12 Trial Examinations began, and the first of our 2019 Fete Appeals has gone home, with a request for SECOND HAND BOOKS for the Book Stall.  Please see inside the Week 1 Bulletin for further information about the 2019 FETE.

Expression of Interest Survey

St Dominic's Priory College is considering establishing a Before School Care, After School Care and Holiday Care service within the College grounds.  In conjunction with the College, Camp Australia is surveying families to determine the need for care within the College community.  Reception to Year 6 families are asked to refer to the information sent home with their daughter/s and ensure their response is returned no later than Wednesday 7 August.

North Adelaide Parking Controls

Mary Couros, Councillor for North Ward of the City of Adelaide has invited staff, parents and members of the College community, to complete a survey via her website [click here], to communicate our concerns with the extensive parking controls recently introduced in the streets surrounding the College.  Your participation would be greatly appreciated.
