Year 11 CC&G Digital Youth Programme 21


Congratulations to our Yr11 digital entrepreneurs who represented Dominican College in the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Digital Youth Programme earlier this year, delivered by Young Enterprise NI.

The girls submission was an innovative virtual tourism themed mobile app design that was built around the concept of linked eye-wear that presented the user with embedded information, guidance and suggestions about their locale whilst looking at a tourist attraction.

The ‘specTARGular’ virtual tourism app design was a daring design prototype that encapsulated hardware and software through the mobile device and wearable technology connected via Bluetooth.

Although they did not win the final event – which was judged virtually, due to COVID restrictions – the girls should be very proud of themselves as their idea was a cutting-edge example of how technology is migrating from handheld to wearable technology.

The specTARGular team - Keeva, Molly, Joy, Eliza, Holly, Alice and Clare.

Meet the 2021-22 U6 prefect team


Robert Anson Heinlein once said that you can never pay back the people who helped you when you were first starting out, so all you can do is pay it forward to those who come after you.

Today, on their final day of L6, we were delighted to be both able to pay back the loyalty and service of our Dominican students and also to inspire them to “pay it forwards” in terms of showing our younger pupils the essence of being a Dominican student. Each year pupils and staff are asked to vote for our prefect and senior prefect team- this year we decided to add a pupil interview to the process of selecting the senior team.

Well done to all our new U6 Year group- you all represent all that is great about DCP. Thank you also for signing up to help with our well-being days next week and in keeping the tradition where our older Dominican pupils pass on the gifts of leadership and friendship to our younger pupils.

Below are the senior prefect team and our team of prefects for the 2021-22 school Year. We are very much looking forward to working with all this year group to help with the smooth and successful running of the school.

Head Boy – Lewis Hawthorne

Letter to parents re: Vaping dangers and your child


The Public Health Agency, Education Authority Youth Service and the Police Service of Northern Ireland have collaborated to ensure that you, as a parent/guardian, are fully informed of the dangers of unregulated vaping substances. Police have received a number of reports of young people who suffered a reaction as a result of vaping cannabis infused oil. Some of these incidents occurred whilst the young people were on school premises. These incidents pose a significant risk to their health and are very concerning.

We have added below a letter for parents with more information and two useful links for parents
