Week 11 Bulletin

By now, students across Years 7 12 have taken home their Term One Report.  Overwhelmingly, the results represent an affirmation of the interest and the effort our students give to their studies.  They are to be heartily congratulated.  In with the report is information for parents about booking times in the early Term 2 Parent Teacher Interviews.

Also inside

  • NAPLAN Success:  At St. Dominic's substantial improvements were shown in numeracy by the cohort of students moving from both Years 3 5 and Years 7 9.
  • District Cross Country: Thursday April 3 saw 35 students attend the North Adelaide District Cross Country trials.  We congratulate them on their successes and, particularly, wish our "top six" place getters well as they move on to represent North Adelaide in the State Championships next term.
  • Easter Liturgy: Students from Years 8-12 gathered yesterday to celebrate the forgiveness of God for us in a Reconcilliation Liturgy.  Thank you to Fr Tony Densley for leading this ritual and for offering the opportunity for private confession to all secondary year levels together with Fr Ben Hensley and Fr James Valledares.

Excitement is mounting as the competitive side of the Project Compassion appeal draws to a close. Students and staff have together devised a number of new and old ways of raising funds for a good cause everything from the traditional bake sale to the staff student netball matches.  Caritas Australia each year builds a wonderful program on its website
to connect the generosity of the giver to those who will receive their help.
