"Attending St. Dominic’s Priory School has given me the opportunity to learn in an environment surrounded by love, understanding, and unwavering support. Priory has helped me grow as a person by encouraging honesty, resilience, and critical thinking as well as teaching me how to put God at the center of my life. Above all, the lifelong friendships I have made and the life lessons I have learned are what make me truly grateful to be a Priory student."
"Nurture. Support. Excellence. These are the three words that come to mind when I think of my experience from Grade-R to date at this distinguished institution. I am blessed and grateful to be part of a school whose ethos encourages strong values and special friendships. St Dominic’s Priory School is truly my heart and home. Priory Proud!"
"Priory has always felt like home to me with its stunning campus and loving, supportive environment, creating a safe place for everyone to belong. I have received a great education underpinned by the school's ethos which has made me the person I am today. One of the most valuable lessons I have learned in my school journey at Priory is the value of integrity and the importance of sticking up for myself, which would not have been possible without the wonderful staff, supporting and guiding me."
"Veritas is our school’s motto and has developed into one of my own. The values and principles that I have been taught from Grade R at St Dominic’s Priory are second to none. In a world filled with obscurities and chaos, our school's ethos reassures students and parents of the possibility of change through education and religion. The compassion of teachers and staff allows for everyone to feel at home, accepted, and loved. I am beyond grateful to be able to call myself a Priory student."
