About Our Student Support Team:

Our Student Support Team consists of experienced professionals who are passionate about the well-being and success of each student. Their primary goal is to foster a positive and inclusive school community where every student can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

Purpose of the Student Support Team:

  1. Academic Support: The team works closely with students who may need extra assistance with their academic endeavors. Whether it's subject-specific tutoring, study skills development, or exam preparation, our team is here to ensure that every student reaches their full potential.
  2. Social and Emotional Well-being: We understand that students face various challenges, and our Student Support Team is equipped to provide a listening ear and guidance. From navigating personal issues to coping with stress and anxiety, our team is here to support the emotional well-being of our students.
  3. Behavioral Support: While the team's purpose is not to deal with behavioural issues ,we work closely and collaborate with teachers, parents and year teams. The team addresses behavioral concerns and promotes positive behavior within the school community. We believe in fostering a safe and respectful learning environment for everyone.
  4. Through implementing a continuum of support, the student support team can provide for the educational, social, emotional, behavioural and learning needs of All, Some and Few students to ensure their ongoing wellbeing. The school Guidance Plan sets out the components of this system which includes for example, the SPHE and RSE curriculum; the behaviour support system; the role of year heads; and the various school policies that apply. Where a student support team is in place it is concerned with promoting a whole school approach to wellbeing.

How to Access Support:

If you believe your child would benefit from the services provided by our Student Support Team, please don't hesitate to reach out. You can contact the necessary year teams, for example or call our office, who will guide you through the process and connect you with the appropriate support.

We Value Your Feedback:

Thank you for entrusting us with the education and well-being of your child. Together, we can ensure that every student at Dominican College reaches their full potential in a Catholic environment.
