ST DOMINIC’S COLLEGE


St Dominic’s College, inspired by the ethos of Edmund Rice, has a
strong tradition of Catholic education for boys. The quality of such education
is clearly evident and has grown to meet the changing needs of secondary
education in the Penrith district.

Facilities: An extensive building program has been recently
undertaken with the refurbishment of all science laboratories, a significant
number of classrooms and all art and music rooms. Currently there are five
blocks that include an information resource centre (library), specialist rooms
for design and technology, visual arts, music, drama, computers, a lecture
theatre and a fully equipped commercial kitchen.

The College also has three ovals, indoor and outdoor basketball
courts, a chapel and a large multi-purpose hall. Future developments include
the refurbishment of the TAS rooms. It will also include a new, enlarged chapel
and the provision of specialist language rooms and office space.

Electives: The college offers all mandatory subjects required by the
NSW government in Years 7 and 8. It is compulsory for all students to study
Religious Education, English, Mathematics, Science and HSIE subjects. From Year
9 and Year 12, elective subjects can be chosen from Creative Arts (Visual Arts,
Music, Drama, Ceramics, Photography), Technology and Applied Science (Computer,
Design and Technology — Wood, Technical Drawing, Metalwork, Plastics), Food
Technology, PE/Health (sports courses), and languages (Japanese, French).

Sport: The college competes in the Metropolitan Catholic Schools
(MCS) sports competition on Thursdays, competing against other Catholic
colleges. MCS representative sports available are basketball, cricket, rugby
league, rugby union, Aussie rules, athletics, soccer, swimming, tennis, golf,
cross-country and touch football. Students are also able to compete for
Combined Catholic Colleges and state selection.
