Parent Engagement

In This Week's Bulletin:

  • There was some emphasis at each of the Parent Teacher nights on the key role parents play in providing boundaries for the safe use of technology.  Advice was given about:

  1. The importance of abiding by the legislation which makes it illegal to create a social media account until a child turns 13.
  2. Comprehensive but targeted info on the "Responsible Home Use of Social Media and Communication Devices."
  3. Information about the inherent risks of various social media platforms and apps; such as Wattpad - see inside today's Bulletin for more information.
  • The 2018 Sports Day Roster is now online.  Every family is asked to donate time to one activity for one hour and in this way enable those with extra responsibilities to watch their daughters' events.
  • Everything you need to know about the 2018 Old Scholars' Mass on Sunday March 4

  • There are still tickets left available for Sunday's fundraising screening of Finding Your Feet

  • Get your Coles Sports for Schools vouchers in now, and help support St Dominic's!

Lent Begins

Lent Begins

Ash Wednesday

Each one of your children will have taken part in the Ash Wednesday ceremony of the Ashes by the time you see them tonight.  They know that:

"Lent is a time to stop and think about how we can play our part in God's hope for a world that is fair, just and peaceful.  Lent is a time when we think about the changes we can make in our lives, a time when we can examine our relationship with God

We are helped in doing this by making a Lenten sacrifice that calls on our resilience and courage.

A Busy Week 1!

Parent Commitments Grow...

By now you are juggling the many commitments which come from being a parent of children who often at more than one school.  Each son and daughter is equally important and at the end of a working day probably the last thing you feel like doing is going to a Parent Information Night.  And yet you know as do we that it is only together that the best outcomes are achieved.  We look forward to meeting you at each of the Parent information nights beginning with Primary Years this week.

Year 11 - 12:  Monday 12 February
Year 7 - 8:      Wednesday 14 February

Year 9 - 10:    Monday 19 February

Important Information

  • Road Safety: All schools in the city and North Adelaide area have received an important letter from the Adelaide City Council concerning the number of drivers who park illegally in the vicinity of schools and the safety issues that this causes.  The main problems occur at school start and finish.  St. Dominic's has its share of drivers who need to respond to this request.  It is true, as the letter states, that it is often parents with children attending the schools that put their own children at risk.  We wish to remind families to not double park, or stop in the line of traffic when dropping off or picking up children.  Parking officers and SAPOL will monitor the road rules at schools and issue fines for infringement.  Thank you for your support.

  • Family Mass: Sincere thanks to those who have sent in their replies to come along with your family to the Family Mass on this Sunday 11 Feb, at 9:30am.  The Parents and Friends will host the Morning Tea after Mass and it will be a perfect time to enjoy a cup of tea and rejoice in the milder sunshine.  We are grateful to the number of parent volunteers offering to help with serving refreshments.  If you would like to get involved, and help fill the roster, you can sign up here:

  • Indian Pilgrimage Movie Fundraiser Screening: On Sunday 25 February, the Capri Theatre, Goodwood will play host to an exclusive fundraiser screening of Finding Your FeetPlease see inside today's Bulletin for details on how you can get Tickets.

  • Financial Assistance: Families are reminded that Applications for School Fee Assistance are required to be returned to the Accounts Office, along with supporting documentation, no later than Friday 16 February.   

Also in Today's Bulletin:

  • Photos and news from Year 8 Camp, Year 12 Retreat, and the Australian Student Leaders Conference (held during the School Holidays).
