St Dominic’s Priory College

St Dominic’s Priory College is an independent, Catholic College for girls established in North Adelaide in 1884 by the English Dominican Sisters.  The College caters for students from Reception to Year 12, with around 700 current students receiving a distinctive, high quality educational experience within the Catholic Dominican faith.  The holistic education offered is supportive of the families and respectful of each student’s unique qualities, needs and aspirations.

Incumbent Principal, Sr Jillian Havey OP, AM is retiring after almost 50 years of dedicated service to the school, creating a unique opportunity for a proven, contemporary educational leader of the Catholic faith to join the College and provide vision for girls’ education and leadership to its staff, students and community.  Reporting to the College Board this pivotal role will:

  • work collaboratively to maintain and grow partnerships with students, staff, families and a wide range of key partners;
  • continue to embed the College’s culture, pastoral care, wellbeing and values into all aspects of College life;
  • lead, motivate and develop a dedicated team of outstanding teaching and non-teaching staff;
  • manage the physical and financial resources of the College and ensure sound governance and financial sustainability.

Applications are encouraged from appropriately qualified and experienced individuals with excellent communication, negotiating, leadership, strategic planning and commercial management skills, complemented by the warmth, integrity, energy and passion to engage with and inspire the College community.

This is a career-defining opportunity to lead an authentic, respected and established girls’ college with vision, drive and commitment for the next generation of students.

St Dominic’s Priory College is an educational ministry of Dominican Education Australia.
