Armistice Day

This morning we commemorated the 100 year anniversary of Armistice Day (which is of course November 11th) with a special assembly outside our chapel. We are very proud of the way that our students treated the occasion with reverence and thoughtfulness. Special thanks to those staff involved with the organisation. The Field of Remembrance outside the Chapel has a cross representing a person from the Henderson area who died during WW1.















Thanksgiving Mass

A very special part of our Mass on Tuesday was welcoming 16 girls into our faith with confirmation and first communion. 7 of them were also baptized. Congratulations girls!
















Farewell

Last Friday our student body farewelled our principal, Carol Coddington. And what a great farewell it was, with their songs, dance and skits reflecting their respect, gratitude and aroha for her. We finished with a whole school haka and a fantastic "Hail St Dominic"! Carol will leaving the school at the end of Term 4.

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
