A Warm Welcome

Mrs McCann (Principal)

I am delighted to welcome you to St. Dominic’s, Belfast. Our school which was established by the Dominican Sisters, Cabra in 1870 is rich in tradition and has a long and well-respected history.

Since 1870, it has acted as an educational beacon, providing a first class education for young women from across Belfast and beyond. Today, we aim to draw out our pupils’ potential, to encourage them to identify their gifts and talents and to build on them in a spirit of truth.

One of my favourite proverbs is “Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann daoine” (It is in one another’s shelter that we live) and that for me captures what it is to be a member of the St. Dominic’s community. We provide shelter and care for one another and through that, we survive and thrive. I hope that our website will be a lens through which you gain a glimpse of life in our beloved school.
