Friends & Family Fund Raising Event

Dear Friends & Family of St Dominics,

With support from Noel Leeming, we are running a Friends & Family Fund Raising event from 29th October - 4th November.

Whether you've been dreaming of a flash new TV or a funky new phone case, this is your chance to save big & support our school. During this event our local Henderson Store will be discounting, to cost +10% with 2.5% of those sales going back to our School!

All you need to do to support the school is save this flyer to your smartphone/device or print it out and bring it with you when you shop at Noel Leeming in Henderson over the weekend 29 October - 4 November. The store is located at The Lincoln Centre, 111 - 129 LIncoln Road.

We encourage you to share this flyer with your extended friends, family, business contacts and colleagues.

We sincerely hope with the support of our extended family and friends network we can make this a successful fundraising event for the school. Funds raised will go towards school camp.

Thank You

Norma Hayward

St Doms Cheer Team

The St Doms Cheer team competed on the weekend at their 1st ever cheer competition. They were up against 5 other High schools and our team made up of mainly year 7 and 8 students and 2 year 9 students took at a silver having zero deductions. They looked amazing on stage and their coach Harry from All Star Mystix Cheerleading and their parents were all extremely proud.
Mackenzie Lovell was selected for the Junior New Zealand development team at the end of last term.



 



 

 

 

 

 

 

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
 
“I really like the international friendships I can make here. Through my school years I have made friends from a variety of different cultural backgrounds. We also have the opportunity to study a range of subjects in all four areas, academic, sports, the arts and cultural – Alicia, Year 10 student
