Dominican College are delighted to have received the news that we have been awarded with our Diplomatic Passport in our WorldWise Global Schools work! We already had the Citizens Passport (bronze) and now have the silver! With a huge thank you to the team who work so hard on this, current 5th years, Alanah, Tess, Alex, Jamie, Niamh, Sarah and Lara Faye.

The Global Passport recognises the school’s work exploring global issues such as Fast Fashion, migration, climate justice, and sustainability.

To earn the passport, students and teachers have studied the root causes of global injustices, raised awareness and taken action as global citizens to create a better future. A total of 54 schools received WorldWise Global Passports for their commitment to building a better future for all.

The Programme Director of WorldWise Global Schools, Katie Chapple, said, ‘Congratulations to all on a successful year of wonderful events.’
