THE CHARITY AND ETHOS COMMITTEE
The Charity & Ethos committee is the one committee where you can give wholeheartedly without expecting anything in return. Throughout the year outreach is our main aim; this is one committee where you can spend your free-time helping others, knowing that you changed someone’s life in at least one way. We support a variety of organizations in a number of different ways, hoping to bring a smile to the face of someone in need.
The Charity & Ethos committee strives to uphold God’s moral message, to help all of his people to the best of one’s ability. The Charity & Ethos committee believes that “God only gives you what you can handle and then just a little more to make you stronger.”
A group of girls determined to make the cultural activities in St Dominic’s known!
The committe organises events such as: the music picnic, the talent show, house plays, and our pride and joy…. THE CULTURAL DINNER!
To be a leader of St. Dominic’s school represents a culmination of many years of effort, perseverance, loyalty and dedication. For the young lady who is elected into this position, it is both an immense privilege, as well as a daunting challenge.
Every year, St Dominic’s hosts various Inter–House events. These are competitive events between our Houses – Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. The Head of House has the responsibility to organise and host these events.
Hugs, kisses, letters, pictures and total adoration is what a member of the Pre-school Committee receives on a daily basis. These matric girls have the honour of influencing and creating memories in each little life they touch. The pre-grade girls look up to them and love the interaction. They are encouraged to be kind and to respect others.
The Hospitality Committee aims generate and encourage an ethos of ‘Service Above Self’ at St Dominic’s.
The Hospitality Committee focuses on getting the Grade 8’s and 9’s involved in various aspects of school life, and the broader community outside of St Dominic’s. This includes any function hosted by the school – be it sporting events, parent meetings, conferences – as well as drama and media involvement, assisting in the media centre and even joining the Charity and Ethos Committee on their various ‘drives’, such as the “Stop Hunger Now” campaign. External community service is encouraged, as many universities consider the number of hours done by an applicant while at school.
The aim is to encourage the girls of St Dominic’s to work towards achieving their ‘Service Colours’ at school. In order to obtain an Honours Blazer, girls will be required to obtain colours in three of the four categories; namely Academic, Sport, Cultural and Service. Hours of any service offered by the girls will be logged, and at the end of the year the hours will be converted into a percentage. A comparison to set criteria will then ensure that the girls be recognised for their service to the school.
We look forward to and encourage all the St Dominic’s girls’ active participation.
What you need to be a member of this committee:
A LOVE AND PASSION FOR SPORT!
It’s not just a hobby; it’s a way of life!
