Our Special Character 

St Dominic’s is committed to creating a caring and supportive environment where each student can feel special, loved, understood and appreciated and which emphasizes excellence in academic learning, personal development and involvement in the community.

Academic Programmes

Our restricted maximum roll number means that we are small enough to care but large enough to challenge and provide a well-rounded education which ensures that our girls are equipped with the learning skills and knowledge that will prepare them for the future.

A full, stimulating and relevant curriculum is offered for all students.

On Monday morning, the whole school gathered in the Gym for a Liturgy in response to the Christchurch massacre. It was a very moving and somber time, and all the girls were deeply respectful and reflective. We prayed for peace, and for love to overcome hate. Then, our school community was offered the chance to light a candle in the Chapel for those victims of the Christchurch shootings. Many also took the opportunity to write a message of support to both Zayed College here in Auckland, and Cashmere College in Christchurch. The cloths of prayer and good wishes will be sent to these Colleges later this week.
Eternal rest grant unto them O God, and may perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace.



On Tuesday 12th, we welcomed into our Chapel the recently deceased and beloved Sister Maureen Connolly OP. Sister Maureen was a Dominican with a long standing relationship with our Kura, and it was a great honour to have her resting in state here with us for three days before she was taken to St Malachy’s Church for her Vigil Mass, followed by her Requiem Mass at St Paul’s in Massey on Friday. Our Kapa Haka stepped up to welcome Sr Maureen into the Chapel. Sr Maureen’s cousin, Mrs Ella Trappe, who had come from Ireland to be with Maureen for the last month, was overwhelmed by the Karanga and the Haka, and told the girls that experiencing that was “the highlight of my life”.

Eternal rest grant unto her Oh Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace.

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
