Creating Bonds

Year 8 Orientation

Meeting the new members of the Year 8 cohort for 2019 was a real pleasure and we hope that they feel more aware of the St. Dominic’s community and of our appreciation of their formative Primary School environments. They are great ambassadors for those communities.

Reactivating Bonds
