Dear Community Members
Welcome to Week 10!
It is hard to believe that we are nearing the end of Term 1!
We have achieved so much this term and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the students, the staff and all of our families for traveling with us on our journey. It has been a privilege to lead such a supportive and vibrant community.
Mr Nick Ryan will join me on the front gate next Tuesday morning and he is certainly looking forward to meeting the students and families as they arrive at school. We welcome Nick to our Dominican community in Term 2.
New School Website
On Thursday will be having a professional photographer visit Dominican School to take some photographs of our school in action which will then contribute to the launch of our new school website early in Term 2. I would like to thank Siobhan Evans for her excellent skills and her generous time in assisting us in the development of this work. Siobhan has been working quietly in the background and the new website is really taking shape. Watch this space!
DISA Survey and Pupil Free Day
Thank you to everyone for participating in our DISA survey. The data collected will give us such a strong direction and we have now commenced the analysing of this data so that we can continue to be the best school possible. In order for this to happen we will be having a Pupil Free Day on Friday 21 May (Week 4, Term2) so that the whole staff can unpack this data and set future directions for Dominican School. OSHC will be available on this day.
We are looking forward to our 2021 School Sports Day next Friday 9 April. Information was sent home yesterday with all the finer details. I look forward to enjoying the day with students, families and staff. Thank you to Martina Kovacev and the Sports Day committee for their excellent organisation.
My sincere hope is that you all get to experience a change in pace during the term break and that the Easter Season will provide some special time with family and friends.
Thanks again for all that you bring to our Dominican Community. I know that Term 2 will continue to achieve great things for all of us.
