Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to the Dominican College, Sion Hill website. 

It is my privilege as principal to invite you to explore the site and hope you will get an insight into the wide range of opportunities and broad education on offer in the school.

The school was founded by the Dominican sisters in 1836, and is now part of The Le Chéile Schools Trust. Today we carry the torch handed onto us by the pioneering Dominican Sisters who championed the provision of a broad and fully rounded education for women from the very outset. Over 180 years later, we endeavour to keep that flame burning brightly.

Our mission statement; ‘Dominican College Sion Hill aims to help each student achieve their full potential academically, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially in a happy secure environment.’, is firmly grounded in those values handed down to us by the Dominican sisters.

We recognise the importance of faith development and we seek to nurture and support the spirituality of each student, encouraging all our students to become truly reflective human beings. 

As Principal, with the help of a highly committed staff, my wish for every student in our care, is that they would, enjoy the best educational experience, immerse themselves in the wide range of opportunities available, and succeed in achieving their full potential in our school. 

If you are a current parent or student, I hope that this website provides you with up to date information on the school. If you are a parent of a child who may wish to join our school, you are welcome to contact us for further information concerning enrolment. 

Finally, if you are a past pupil, please renew your contact with us. You will always be part of our family and we would love to hear from you.
