Student Wellbeing

At Dominican School, student wellbeing is integral – we aim to offer an environment that develops the wellbeing of all our students.

We strongly believe we are in partnership with you in the care and wellbeing of your child. Our aim is to build a Catholic school where all in the community work and learn together in a safe and caring environment. 

We encourage active listening and caring for others, building trust so that children thrive in their learning environment. We have various programs in place to support children both academically and personally.

Our Wellbeing Support Officer works hand in hand with classroom teachers to support children.

Security

The safety of our students is paramount!

School gates are locked after school drop-off and re-opened at the end of the school day. Visitors are required to sign in and out at the Front Office.

Allergy Awareness

Dominican School has an Allergy Awareness Policy that minimises the risk to anaphylactic students and other allergy sufferers. All students who suffer from allergies must provide a medical management plan.

We ask that foods containing nuts or nut products are not brought to school.

Breakfast Club

Our Breakfast Club has a long standing tradition at Dominican School. Our Parents and Friends and other volunteers within our community prepare breakfast every morning of the week for our students as they arrive at school. We gather quietly in the school courtyard and our students enjoy sharing in the most important meal of the day.

Our Breakfast Club is funded by KickStart for Kids, a South Australian not-for-profit organisation that provides a breakfast program for many children in South Australia.

We rely solely on contributions made by both commercial sponsorships and the generosity of individuals in the South Australian and the local Semaphore community.
