YOUNG ENTERPRISE SCHEME (YES)

As the CEO of ACE Class Co, my co-directors and I were given the opportunity to present at Dragons Den Western Zones which was held at St Dominic’s College and Dragons Den Regionals which were held at AUT City Campus. Our product is a bag shield which protects your bag and its contents from the elements. Our hard work and dedication resulted in us winning 2nd in the West Auckland Region. Our experience of competing in Dragons Den has taught us to not give up and the value of time management. A big thank you to Mr Murray, and Mr Choi for his hard work in assisting us with our presentation and a big thank you to all of the sponsors, Auckland Tourism, Events and Economics, AUT, Kiwibank, Xero and Sanitarium. I look forward to continuing our entrepreneur adventure and to making ACE Class well known in the community.  If you are interested in our product, you can find us on Facebook under ACE Class Co. Young Enterprise. And just remember, we’re ACE Class Co and we’ve got you covered!

Rich Tradition of Learning and Achievement

Our students enjoy a high rate of success in national examinations and, later, at tertiary institutions. 
St Dominic’s offers a rich curriculum which ensures that there is opportunity for students to develop their academic, spiritual, cultural and physical potential.

We believe (and research confirms) that girls can more easily reach their full potential in a single sex school. A Gifted and Talented programme is offered for those girls identified as likely to benefit from additional extension and challenge.

Students Receive Individualised Assistance in Their Studies

All our students have their own academic coach from Year 7 through to Year 13 to advise on goal setting, review progress and to assist in determining the next steps required to continue the student’s academic achievement.

Learning support is available for any students needing a helping hand to build the capacities needed to achieve in the future.
