Strategic Plan & Governance
Strategic plan 2021 – 2025
Our Strategic Plan is grounded in our mission and seeks to leverage off our current strong position. Working from four key domains, we aim to ensure Cabra Dominican College students can continue to access a high quality, contemporary education that enables them to thrive – both now and in the future.
Our central domain Consciously Catholic, mindfully Dominican articulates who we are and what we do, recognising the importance of the Sacramental life of our work. The three other domains are no less significant, and highlight our commitment to the Cabra community.
- Lead for an inclusive community represents our steadfast commitment to shape a connected community of welcome, that is inclusive, caring, just and equitable.
- Strengthen and innovate for the future represents our commitment to remain future focussed, meeting the current and anticipating the future requirements of our community.
- Pursue excellence and growth is bold and purposeful and represents our commitment to growth and improvement across all areas of the college.
dominican education australia
At the request of the Dominican Sisters of North Adelaide, the Dominican Sisters of Eastern Australia, and the Holy Cross Congregation of Dominican Sisters in Adelaide, Dominican Education Australia was established by the Catholic Church on 28 January 2015. DEA is a Public Juridic Person (PJP) of Pontifical Right, meaning it has responsibility for both canonical and civil governance.
DEA was officially launched in Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne during August 2016. DEA exercises oversight of the six educational ministries that have previously been the responsibility of the three founding Congregations. These are: St Mary’s College, Adelaide SA, St Dominic’s Priory College, North Adelaide SA, Cabra Dominican College, Cumberland Park, Santa Sabina College Strathfield NSW, St Lucy’s School, Wahroonga NSW and Siena College Camberwell Melbourne VIC.
