St Dominic's Day 2019

Last Tuesday, August 6th, we celebrated our Feast Day with Mass. Our celebrant was Monsignor Bernard Kiely, and the concelebrant was our Chaplain, Fr Kevin Murphy. This was a particularly beautiful and special Mass for many reasons, but primarily because 26 of our students received the Sacraments of Confirmation and First Communion, with 15 also receiving Baptism. This joyful event was supported by the whole school in their reverent and enthusiastic singing and their wholehearted participation. Monsignor Kiely commented on how impressed he was by this full and engaged involvement of all our students and staff. Other highlights included the Word being brought up by our Whānau Form class, and the gifts being brought up by our Papuan students, who will sadly be leaving us at the end of this year. Rebekah Lewis, Year 13, sang her own composition called “Bumble Bee’, which was also a very special moment that many people commented on. Photographs will be made available soon for the families of the Sacramental girls to remember their very special day.

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.

Many leadership opportunities exist with each form class having a class captain, environmental captain, arts captain and sports captain while roles are also available as Peer Mediators, Ambassadors, Body Image Leaders and Eucharistic Ministers to name but a few.
