News from the Maths Department

We are very excited to share news of the academic success of some of our senior Mathematics students. Tayla Paauwe, Anastasia Bryleva, Amanda Wang and Jae Hwang, who completed Level 3 Calculus in Year 12, have been accepted to follow the University of Auckland Young Scholars’ Programme MAX course this year. MAX (Mathematical Acceleration and eXtension) is a first semester (internal or extramural) course in university mathematics for high achieving high school students throughout New Zealand. The programme is designed for students who enjoy academic challenge, have shown themselves to be very capable at high school mathematics and can handle a solid workload. The Department of Mathematics and the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Auckland jointly offer this course which is academically equivalent to the first year Engineering Mathematics course.

We congratulate these students for this significant achievement!



From 22nd - 24th of January, our Head Girls and Special Character Leaders were invited to attend the annual Salt and Light Logos Leadership Retreat. We travelled to Kaueranga Valley Christian Camp, along with other Year 13 leaders from Catholic schools in Auckland and Hamilton. Over three days we engaged in group activities and challenges such as “the amazing race”. We connected with other students and retreat leaders as well as have time to reflect on ourselves and what leadership skills we would bring to our school communities.
Every activity we participated in helped us to deepen our understanding of what it is to be “salt and light”, which is derived from the Gospel of Matthew 5:13-16 stating, “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?”... “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.” Salt represents our differences and unique talents, whilst light represents guidance, warmth and how we are able to use our light to help provide direction for others. As we reflected as a group and individuals on this bible verse we realised that as leaders we are called to be salt and a light and this is something we are really looking forward to acting upon as we head into this school year. This retreat cultivated beautiful friendships and created some amazing memories. Not only that but it gave the leaders of our Catholic School communities a chance to grow together. We couldn’t have been more honoured to be given the opportunity to attend this retreat and represent our amazing school.

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.

Confidence Building Leadership Opportunities

At St Dominic’s we recognise the value of developing each student’s confidence to be a part of a team and to play their part as a leader.

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.

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