Guidance & Counselling

The Guidance & Counselling Department in St. Dominic's College Cabra aims to aid in the Personal and Social, Educational and Career development of each pupil, throughout their St. Dominic’s school years. This allows them to make a smooth and healthy transition from the world of secondary education to the world of work or further education. Our objectives are guided by the good practice as outlined by the Institute of Guidance Counsellors and the National Centre for Guidance in Education. We see guidance as a continuous developmental process which begins prior to the entry of the pupil to St. Dominic's College Cabra and continues throughout the pupil's life in our school.
