Last Tuesday, St Dominic’s master bakers in the Prep Cookery Club produced some wonderful scones for their final session of the year. They have mastered a range of different skills this year including ‘rubbing in’ and ‘creaming’, and are showing all the signs of budding ‘Master Chef’ contestants.

Well done to all our chefs, a big thank you to our parents for providing the ingredients and to Eleanor for her continued support and patience.

Well done to the group of our Year 10 students who successfully completed their D of E Bronze expedition over the weekend.

The weather was again very hot and our students coped remarkably well in the conditions. Sunday’s section was even completed ahead of schedule.

We again saw some outstanding performances in areas of navigating, teamwork and planning.

The students will now be finishing off the remaining parts of the D of E sections in order to fully complete the Bronze Award.
