The Heidelberg Catechism came up in a variety of discussions at the Synod of Dort. These included discussions of: how best to teach the catechism in the home, school and church; Arminian observations on the catechism with suggestions for revision; the response of the Palatine (Heidelberg) delegation to the Arminian observations; a review and approval of the catechism; and guidelines for catechism preaching.
