CHILDREN AS LEADERS IN OUR SCHOOL

 

At St Dominic’s Primary School, all pupils are encouraged to actively participate in the Catholic life of our school. The children show great enthusiasm for promoting the Mission of our school and are always keen to suggest ideas and organise activities that benefit other pupils and members of the local community that are in need.

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

John 13:34–35

Our Doves

Our pupils at St Dominic’s were invited to apply for the role in our school called ‘Our Doves’. These pupils sat an interview with their Head Teacher and our RE Lead. They were very impressed with the children’s knowledge and enthusiasm during their interviews.

They have a very important role to play in supporting Ms Finan, Miss Hamilton and Ms O’Grady in promoting and developing the Catholic life of the school. Their responsibilities include:

  • Leading prayers and assemblies.
  • Organising prayer groups for younger children.
  • Preparing liturgical displays and organising collections for the charities that we support.

 Our School Dove is putting her faith into action:

Handmade Jewellery

Isla and Luly Grace, in year 4, have been using their spare time to make jewellery to sell to students to raise funds for the people of Ukraine.

Isla stated, “I have been making jewellery to help the people in Ukraine. The students and teachers tell me what design they want, and I will make the jewellery within two days. I love making loom bands, but I hate to see people suffer. So when I go home, I place all the money I’ve raised in a jar and count it up when the pot is full. I give all the money to Ms Finan so she can send it to help people in Ukraine, and I will continue to make loom bands until the war is over and everyone has a home, even the people that had no home before.”

Social Media Release Form

 

St. Dominic’s will soon have a fully functional social media account on Instagram. This account will give you opportunities to see what your children are learning in the school day. Children names will never be printed or tagged, and every measure will be taken to safeguard children's identities. Social Media is also a good opportunity for the school to publicise our achievements and recruit sponsors. This form authorises your child to be a part of our social media online presence. Please note all settings are set to - NO comments turned on, NO sharing of content allowed, likes are turned on, but messaging is turned off. Please see this as a wonderful opportunity to stay more connected to the school and your child's learning journey at St. Dominic's.
