Welcome from our Head Girl and Head Boy
Hello, my name is Juliette Nola and it is my honour to be Head Girl.
If you had told me, in year 11, that I would be the Head Girl of St Dominic’s, I would have laughed out loud, feeling terrified at the prospect of such a demanding role, yet deep down hoping that this would one day be me.
Joining the college has enabled me to grow and develop in ways I could never imagine. From being shy, and reserved, St Dominic’s has shaped me into an independent, confident learner who is not afraid to take risks in order to reach my goals.
Immersing myself into this role and leading the student body has been a fantastic opportunity. I am immensely appreciative for this experience and hope to have a lasting effect on the college, helping the wider community through charitable work, as well as improving mental health initiatives to create a strong support system that enables students to flourish during these demanding years. I also hope to be an approachable, open-minded representative, who can successfully use the opinions of students to make positive change.
Whilst my time at St Dominic’s during a pandemic has been far from smooth sailing, I am grateful to be leading the college back to a sense of normality, enabling strong relationships to be built between the student and teaching body, in an environment that fosters academic attainment and spiritual and personal growth.
Beyond studies, there is something for everyone. St Dominic’s offers a plethora of extracurricular activities from flower arranging to debating club to climate change society. I am thoroughly enjoying my time at St Dominic’s as Head Girl and would like to warmly welcome you to the college.
Hello, I am Mitul Matthews. I am delighted to welcome you to St Dominic’s as Head Boy for this academic year.
The start of my time here at St Dominic’s has been full of surprises and challenges for myself, other students and staff, which has really helped to bring the College community together. The unreserved kindness and gratitude on display has been a constant here at St Dominic’s, standing out in a time of much uncertainty. The prominence of these values has made it all the more enjoyable in leading the student body.
In this role of responsibility I have been appointed to, I have gained a valuable appreciation of the support offered by our staff in ensuring the depth of support we receive, as students. This has wholeheartedly reaffirmed my faith in picking the right College, making the jump from school to Sixth Form a lot less daunting. I would put these successes down to the emphasis of our College’s motto “Veritas”, which is encountered in everything we do, drawing your attention particularly to the activities and enrichment that allow our students to personally thrive, knowing they are being true to themselves.
Seeing members of the College community taking their talents and immersing themselves in the wider world has been a refreshing reminder of the profound capabilities and proactivity amongst our student body. We have flourished with regard to environmental work and various charitable initiatives. Paired with the College’s focus on holistic development, these achievements are a testament to the ongoing personal and spiritual growth experienced by our students, cultivating a rich crop of future leaders.
Whether you are a prospective student, parent or just an onlooker, I can assure you the St Dominic’s family will impress you. I hold the College in the highest regard and look forward to seeing it excel past my time here as Head Boy.
