Welcoming our 1st Years

We are looking forward to welcoming our 1st Years students to Dominican College on Monday.
Welcoming our 1st Years

Our ‘New Beginnings’ Induction Programme has the wellbeing of each student at the centre of our planning and it is ready to go! We have a busy programme enabling students to get to know their new school and so that we can get to know them! Although we are in challenging times, every class will receive our very warm Dominican College welcome.

Our arrangements for the first morning are as follows:

  • Students should arrive from 9.45 onwards to be on time for 10.00 am start via the main entrance of the school - The path is marked at two-metre physical distancing. We’ll be there to show students the way to their classroom.
  • Parents should leave and collect students at the school gate on Griffith Avenue. Unfortunately due to Covid-19 restrictions, parents cannot enter the school grounds at this time.
  • The induction will finish at 12.20 pm - please collect at the main gate.
  • Students should wear full school uniform.
  • Students must put on their face covering/mask on entering the building (Tip: Have it ready in a zip lock bag).
  • Students will also be asked to sanitise their hands on arrival.
  • Students will work with their new class group and Form Teacher in their base classroom. Our traditional ‘Welcome Assembly’ will be streamed into each classroom via Google Meet. This will address the following:
    • Meet the 1st Year Team
    • Opening Prayer from our Chaplain
    • Two-way system and Year Group Zones
    • Safety precautions for all
    • Getting to know each other activities
    • Tour of the school building
  • Students should bring:
      • Snack and drink for small break
      • Hygiene bag with face-covering/masks, tissues, hand sanitiser & disinfectant wipes
      • Pencil Case
      • And don’t forget your smile!

Individual school photographs will be taken during our induction programme next week for our school Management Information System VSware.

Thank you for your forthcoming support and for trusting us with your daughter’s second level education. We look forward to working with you over the coming years.
