End of Year Mass

Posted by St Dominic's Priory College on 5 December 2018
End of Year Mass

The End of Year Mass ritual speaks for itself as a Eucharistic encounter between Christ and our community enriched by the words of the Scripture beautifully conveyed, and by the prayers of the Church and of the Faithful.  The music from Choir from the soloists, and the backing of the musicians takes us into the world beyond words, one which speaks to the heart.  Our graduates were especially in our hearts as they were given a special part in this Mass.  See inside today's Bulletin for more...

This Final Week

The Years 7-12 Assembly will be held on this Friday when student awards will be presented and students will farewell some of our staff.  See inside today's Bulletin for dismissal times.

Report Collection: On Wednesday 12 December from 8:00am3:45pm reports will be available at Reception.  It would be wonderful if the reports could be picked up on this day, but the office is also open on Friday.

Don't Miss: Important information about 2019 Laptop Distribution and the first day of Term 1 is included in today's Bulletin.  Greater detail will be provided via a circular included with students' reports.

Twilight Assembly

Thank you to the many parents who have sent positive emails to the Primary teachers congratulating them on their hard work, enthusiasm and the success of last week's Twilight Assembly.  The kind words are always very much appreciated. We were all so very proud of the class performances and you could definitely see the joy on the girls' faces.  All the classes had put thought into their acts and you could see the enormous amount of enthusiasm the students had when performing their class pieces and singing the final songs.
