Parent Engagement at St Dominic’s

Since last week’s letter we have been engaged as large groups in:

  • The Year 12 2016 High Achievers Assembly

  • The Year 9 and 10 Parent Teacher information sessions

  • School excursions, especially the lucky Year 4/5s, to the Women’s Australian Open

  • Tonight’s first P&F Meeting is coming up, and

  • Tomorrow Year 6-12 be competing as House Teams, at our Santos Field Day

Our staff are behind the organisation of these events but the presence of parents is what makes them strongly supportive for our school community.  As mentioned at Monday night’s Parent Teacher gathering the value of a family’s investment of time and interest in their daughter’s education cannot be overstated. 

In connection with the meetings and events of the last week we are publishing a photo of the 2016 students at the High Achievers Assembly.  Our SACE and Year 12 Coordinator Greg Larwood presented each student’s profile of achievement with tips from their subject teachers as to why they attained a high grade, while not necessarily starting the year with one.  Shanna Lee, Head Prefect 2016, who is this week commencing her studies in Medicine at Adelaide University, held the close attention of her audience at this Assembly.  Her talk is well worth the reprint which is in today’s Bulletin
