Learn to learn, learn to live, learn to fly

We are Cabra

We are a Catholic college in Adelaide, South Australia, guided in faith by the Dominican Sisters who started Cabra in 1886. We are a welcoming, inclusive, co-educational environment, providing the ideal setting for students in years 7 to 12 to flourish.

Our Vision

Cabra Dominican College, as a Christian community in the Catholic tradition, strives to nurture and develop the unique gifts of individuals, to liberate them in the search for truth, and to empower them to create a better world.

Our Mission

Our mission is to be a place of excellence in teaching and learning in the Catholic tradition. We have a strong commitment to outreach and social justice and encourage critical thinking and self-confidence. We work to provide a stimulating learning environment, which is holistic, and encourages and supports each teacher and student to be his or her best.

Last Wednesday night, our Year 12s were accompanied by their families as they celebrated Mass for the last time as Cabra students. Then, on Thursday, Year 12s had their last day of classes which concluded with a whole school assembly. Following Cabra tradition, the drum corps heralded the arrival of the graduates, then senior drum corps members passed on their drums to younger students. House Leaders ceremonially handed over items to Year 7s, showing the strong links across the school. College Captains Brittany and Ezequiel spoke of their gratitude for what their cohort has been able to do in this unusual year, and the assembly ended with a rousing rendition of our school song, The Good, the Beautiful and the True.
We sincerely congratulate every member of the Class of 2020, and could not be prouder of the way they have carried themselves throughout this year, their leadership for our younger year levels, and the legacy they have left. We particularly congratulate students who received significant awards, including Grace Tibalt, who is the 2020 recipient of the Dominican Sisters’ Award, presented by Sr Bernadette Kiley OP.
