Fáilte & Welcome
Céad Míle Fáilte to all our readers, whether parent, student, teacher, past student or someone interested to find out about our fine College.
During the week of October 8th - 12th October, when the clock strikes 12:30 pm, students and staff of Dominican College will stop what we are doing and take time to read between 12:30-1:00pm. The main focus of this National D.E.A.R Challenge is to draw attention to the importance of reading for pleasure. The photographs from previous years show lots of smiling faces indicating that the students thoroughly enjoy this reading experience. Well done to Ms. Kealy and all the English department who have made this event happen.
Dominican College students visited Ireland's largest college fair on Friday 14th September. Representatives of universities and third-level colleges and institutions that cater for all levels were present, as 25,000 students attended the event this year as they prepare to make key decisions about what and where they will study upon completing the Leaving Cert.
More than 160 colleges, universities and institutes of further education from Ireland and across Europe are represented at Higher Options 2018, which took place at the RDS Simmons court. The expo was an opportunity for our students to speak directly with representatives of universities and third-level colleges and institutions that cater for all levels. Students attended talks, spoke directly with guidance counsellors, and sought advice from experts on third-level funding as well as representatives from all the main Irish universities and colleges.

First years, don’t forget your €2!!

Storyline: As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as "human computers", we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history's greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return.
