Dominican Convent School is proud to boast a selection of six codes of sport in 2015:
Each of the sports offered at Dominican continue to grow with each practice. More and more learners are finding that their interest, skill, and ability can be nurtured in the sports that are on offer. DCS will strive to introduce other sports should there be an overwhelming need to do so.
An elite player is one whose play is clearly above and beyond the rest of the School's sporting boys and girls. This player will also have represented the province or country in his or her sport. Dominican currently has one such player in Boys Basketball – an u16 National player.
