At St Dominic’s Priory College, we offer a balanced approach to education – one that empowers our students to learn and grow, not only intellectually, but physically, spiritually and socially too.
This is why education outside the classroom, in the form of camps and excursions, is such an important part of the St Dominic’s Junior School experience. Besides giving our girls the chance to get out into the community and build positive relationships with staff, camps and excursions provide other opportunities for students to shine beyond the classroom setting.
