Thank you for taking the opportunity to learn more about San Sisto College. As a Catholic secondary school in the Dominican Tradition we are committed to the education of young women. The Dominican values of truth, joy, faith and prayer, justice and compassion, community and service, and a love of learning are as essential to the contemporary world as they were in previous times.
Our aim is to provide a learning environment that supports the individual student to meet the challenges of the future. With an emphasis on academic achievement, development of practical skills, promotion of community harmony and a wide co-curricular program, the college seeks to challenge each student in individual ways while fostering a strong feeling of community. The college provides an extensive curriculum which caters for the varied interests and needs of students seeking both academic and vocational outcomes with technology integrated across learning areas within the curriculum. We have adopted Dimensions of Learning as our authoritative pedagogy, and we place a high regard on learning habits that sustain our young women through life.
Students are also encouraged to participate within their community through involvement in a wide range of social justice activities.
Parent contact is particularly welcomed with an emphasis on the partnership between home and school. The importance of good adult role models in the lives of young people cannot be emphasised too strongly. High quality communication between parents and teachers provides a secure environment that fosters the positive development of our young women.
I hope that you enjoy your browse through our website, experiencing a taste of the wonderful things that life at San Sisto has to offer. Please do not hesitate to call the college or email me if you have any questions.
