Santa Sabina College is a ministry of the Dominican Sisters who are part of the world-wide Dominican Order of men and women, founded by St Dominic in Europe in the thirteenth century.
Our College, through the Congregation of the Dominican Sisters of Eastern Australia and the Solomon Islands is linked with the international Dominican Family through networks such as the Dominican Sisters International and Dominican Volunteers International.
- Rosary Lodge which is adjacent to the Middle School is the Congregational headquarters for the Dominican Sisters of Eastern Australia and the Solomon Islands. From here the Sisters’ Leadership Team administers the works of the Sisters located throughout the eastern states and the Solomon Islands
- Known as the Order of Preachers, the Congregation is committed to the motto of Truth. Dominicans teach and minister in universities, schools and parishes throughout Australia as well as supporting through their presence many initiatives for the marginalised in our society
- Dominican communities supported by the Santa Sabina College community include:
- The Dominican Sisters in the Solomons and East Timor;
- the Dominican Sisters of Montebello, Natal, South Africa with whom we have a ‘sister school’ relationship;
- the Kopanang Project, an initiative of the Dominicans near Johannesburg, South Africa, which provides for women whose families have been impacted upon by the AIDS pandemic.
- Education about these communities is an important part of our Social Justice Education program for students, staff and parents.
- Annually our students trave to South Africa and the Solomon Islands for an ‘immersion’ experience.
