Key Learning Area Coordinator: Emma Bright

Embark is the flagship subject of St. Dominic’s College; it is a holistic program that assists our students in their transition into secondary schooling. Students develop a strong sense of belonging to the College through their studies of HSIE, English and Religious Education with one teacher in a supportive and stimulating learning environment. Our Embark staff are committed to strengthening our students’ literacy skills and engaging them in innovative units of work. Our students are supported in their ability to engage with technology and are challenged to be gentlemen who are active members of society by the charism of Edmund Rice at the heart of our curriculum.
