The four Dominican Pillars are community, ministry (service), study, and prayer.
These are the standards of life that Dominicans live by. Dominican Convent School is built upon these pillars, creating a faith-filled community where students of all faiths are able to grow in their personal spirituality.
AT A GLANCE
Dominican Convent School is the oldest school in Bulawayo as the sisters opened it on Monday the 28th of October 1895, with ten pupils in the wood and iron chapel which they rented from the Jesuit Fathers.
On the second day of school, 22 children attended lessons. The school was situated between 10th and 11th Avenues along Fort St (where the present day Immigration Offices are).
