Santa Sabina College is a Ministry of Dominican Education Australia which provides an inclusive, caring and welcoming Catholic education in the Dominican tradition.

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. The Dominicans’ Order of Preachers, was founded by St Dominic in Europe in the 13th century.

  • Rosary Lodge, which is adjacent to our entrance at 90 The Boulevarde, 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 affected by the AIDS pandemic.
  • Education about these communities is an important part of our Social Justice Education program for students, staff and parents.
  • Our students often travel to South Africa and the Solomon Islands for an ‘immersion’ experience.
