ACADEMIC COACHING CONFERENCE

The purposes of the second student-parent-academic coach conference are to review the three academic goals and to discuss actions required to work towards these. Parents/caregivers and students should be familiar with the student's subject specific data i.e. report, assessment data such as e-AsTTLe, literacy, numeracy and/or NCEA. Students should have been monitoring their academic goals on the Ultranet (or Google Drive for some Year 10 form classes).

KICK START BREAKFAST CLUB

The Kickstart Breakfast Club has really taken off with over 20 students taking the opportunity most mornings to have breakfast and get fuelled up for their day. With this in mind the breakfast club will extend to run five days a week from May 30th. Thanks to the Young Vinnies group who will operate the club on Tuesday mornings and to all those teachers who have volunteered their time on the other days. The Kickstart Breakfast Club runs from 8 to 8.30 a.m. in the gym classroom.

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.

We greatly appreciate the positive impact the College has had on each one of our four  daughters personal and educational journeys!" - Wendy, parent
