Based in Tasmania australia the College is located on a spacious site in Tolosa Street glenorchy nestled in the foothills of Mount Wellington. A comprehensive independent catholic school we are focused on innovative and creative learning that supports individual student growth. Our founder don Bosco WAs a visionary 19th century priest and educator who believed that the relationship between teacher and learner is one of the most important factors in achieving educational outcomes. At Dominic we invest a great deal in developing this relationship. Dynamic teachers work with students in developing quality engagement in learning. Old Scholars of Dominic speak of three things they valued most about the College: the quality staff who cared about them; their diverse learning opportunities and experiences and the life-long friendships they made through our school.

We continue this commitment of developing a belief in God’s presence and goodness in our lives and the call for all to be exemplary local and global citizens.
