OUR SCHOOL

St. Dominic’s College Penrith is an independent Catholic school that has served the greater Penrith area since 1959. As a Catholic school it seeks to develop the spiritual and moral aspect of the students. It is outwardly expressed in a strong social justice programme involving all students which benefits the local Penrith community and through a comprehensive indigenous programme. With its unique balance of academic studies sport social justice programmes and cultural activities the students emerge as well rounded individuals grounded in the realities of life. They learn to gradually assume more and more independence as they emerge from young
OUR VALUES

The College seeks to educate its students in the Catholic ethos. While the majority of the students are Catholic members of other religions are welcomed and embraced. All students are imbued with a strong set of moral guidelines that equip them for life now and in the future.

PASTORAL DEVELOPMENT

Boys experience a caring environment and a mentoring programme which helps them mature. Growing up through its strong pastoral programmes the boys learn to mix and work with a diverse range of talents and personalities. The College is student centred and they organise run and are involved in the many facets of the College. Outdoor education camps are an intrinsic part of this development enabling the students to become more resilient and able to cope with today’s world.

CURRICULUM

The College offers a wide range of subjects to the Higher Certificate level and its students have achieved enviable successes in the HSC. It has a strong strand of vocational education courses for those who do not wish to follow an academic path. In keeping with the pastoral theme it has a very strong and dedicated special education staff. Extra help is also available after school for those who are experiencing difficulty in core subjects.

BOYS EDUCATION

Being a single sex school means that the College can concentrate on educating boys in a way that best suits them. Boys learn differently to girls preferring a more “hands on” and group approach. Consequently the College engages with the boys and their learning in a way that best suits this. The students have great access to modern technology especially laptops and other types of computers in the extensively upgraded and modern facilities.

EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

The College is well known for its sporting prowess with numerous Australian representatives across a variety of codes. It also has an active music department that is reflected in the many instrumental groups that exist in the College. Chess is popular both at lunch time and against other schools.
