By the time they reach Middle School, students will have already enjoyed many years connecting with one of the four College houses:
in honour of St Dominic
in honour of St Catherine of Siena
in honour of Mother Rose Columba Adams
in honour of St Thomas Aquinas
In Year 6, one student is elected as Junior Captain for each house. They provide leadership to the Junior School, while supporting the senior Team captains too.
Twilight Field & Sports Day
Opening with Years 6 – 12 participating in traditional marching, the Twilight Field & Sports Day is one of the highlights of the St Dominic’s Priory College calendar year.
This offsite day is open to parents in the afternoon and includes a whole range of fun-filled activities. Ball games and athletics are boosted by team spirit and marching activities, while mother/daughter and father/daughter races and teacher vs student relays add to the day’s vibrant energy.
The day culminates in one of the four houses being awarded the winner trophy, along with medals being handed out to record winners in individual age groups. Friendly competition might be in the air, but the day is all about taking that sense of belonging and community that our houses create – and celebrating this connection.
