Community Outreach



Pupils are involved in a wide range of community outreach and volunteering initiatives.


St Dominic's Volunteer Pledge


Our mission statement calls us to be 'a community dedicated to ...the enhancement of human dignity'. As such, pupils are engaged in a diverse range of advocacy, volunteering and development programmes which seek to promote the equality and dignity of all human beings. St Dominic’s has signed up to the ‘Power of Youth’ Charter.


Volunteering


The school actively promotes and acknowledges pupil volunteering. Our yearly volunteer census identifies pupil volunteers. We acknowledge their efforts through award presentations at Year Group assemblies and via our via our school media channels. In 2022 the school led a T:Buc programme (Together: Building United Communities) twinning with a Lisburn school. The school also has current Diana Award Ambassadors and #iWill Youth Ambassadors who engage in and promote youth volunteering.


The school has an allocated Volunteer Coordinator who reports to the Board of Governors. We are delivery partners for the Volunteer Now Impact Awards and are a beacon school for the Get Set for Community Action programme. Social engagement is an essential part of our educational programme developing students' skills and values.
