Philosophy of Education

The Dominican motto ‘Truth’ is the inspiration of our work.

Dominican education is concerned with the education of the whole person.

Strong emphasis is placed on each student attaining her full potential academically, but care is also taken to ensure that each student benefits from an enriching all-round education.

In an atmosphere of trust and friendliness, students are encouraged to develop responsibility, initiative, personal growth and leadership so as to help them take their place in society as mature and committed Christians.

Our Philosophy on Education is:

  • To educate for life
  • To teach students to think for themselves
  • To know truth from falsehood
  • To value God’s creation and acknowledge God’s gifts for us
