Santa Sabina College is an independent Catholic school in the Dominican tradition; co-educational K-4 and girls Yrs 5-12. We have 5 campuses: Primary School, Santa Maria del Monte (K-5); Middle School, Martin De Porres (6-7); Secondary School, Santa Sabina (8-12); Tallong Outdoor Education and Retreat Centre; and Mary Bailey House Early Education Centre. Our Mission is to provide quality holistic education in a caring faith community. We are committed to future-focused schooling. The College achieves its mission through a strong commitment to academic and personal excellence, to nurturing the individual and to the development of independence, leadership and education for justice. Our intellectually challenging and diverse learning experiences foster creativity and the curious mind and develop a desire for life-long learning. Our broad curriculum offerings facilitate a wide subject choice for our senior students. Our students are well known and cared for; pastoral programs and the building of a strong spirit of community are a high priority at Santa Sabina. The College is well resourced with extensive and beautiful grounds, a pool, courts and ovals. A technology-rich learning environment is provided for students from Kindergarten to Year 12. Co-curricular opportunities include 22 sports encompassing local competitions and representative level participation. Diverse music ensembles such as choirs, orchestra and mini maestros programs are available. We enjoy a long tradition of successful public speaking and debating. The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and outdoor leadership programs develop skills of independence, team work and self esteem. The Tallong Campus bush setting offers students a developmentally sequenced outdoor education program for students from Years 4-9, with a focus on environmental stewardship and suatainability. Opportunities for overseas travel and immersion experiences to South Africa and Central Australia provide rich global education experiences. The College’s Service to Community program and social justice initiatives encourage an awareness of students’ gifts and their responsibilities as advocates for justice. Our graduates are highly successful in a diverse range of professional arenas. They are articulate, confident young people who are committed to using their education, skills and personal qualities to make a difference to their world. We are fortunate to enjoy the support of very involved Parents & Friends’ and Ex-Students’ Associations, as well as the participation of the Dominican Sisters in the College community. The liturgical life of the College, the academic, co-curricular and pastoral programs all support our objectives, for students to embrace the world and grow in the truth – VERITAS.
