Early in the 15th Century the Dominican Order adopted a simple black and white shield with eight divisions representing joy and penance. In the mid-15th Century, the 8-pointed star was added to represent the compass points as a symbol of light and divine revelation.
The crest contains the Cross of Aza, the family symbol of St Dominic’s mother that is representative of a flowering lily turning sacrifice into joy.
The school’s motto is ‘Veritas’ which translates to ‘Truth’, honesty with one’s self and being one’s own person before God and before others. Honesty brings us closer together and allows us to build trust-worthy relationships, seeking to live as Jesus would have us live.
We work closely with the Dominican priests who run our Parish and feel privileged to be part of such a spiritually rich community.

To develop and enhance the Rosary spirit, children are placed into one of our four houses: Mawson (Blue), Freeman (Red), Chisholm (Green) or Barton (Yellow). Students are involved in house-based activities throughout the year which promote fair play, team work, cooperation and respectful sporting behaviour.
