Recent News

Recently, two groups of students were able to present the banners that were signed with messages of love and hope for Zayed College in Mangere, and Cashmere High School in Christchurch. On Tuesday a group of students and staff attended the Zayed College Memorial Service and were able to gift the banner and a box full of heart-felt messages on pink and red hearts. On the same day, our Lawn Bowls team were competing in a national competition, and the Cashmere High School Boys Triples team was there. Our girls presented them with our banner for them as well as another box of heart messages. Here is an excerpt from the manager of that team, in his email to us:

“I want to thank St Dominic's College for their thoughtfulness and kindness for putting together the notes and the mural of thoughts and messages of kindness following last week’s tragic events. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers in what is a tough time for Cashmere High School, and the wider Christchurch community. I myself the 'Bowls Coach' work as a doctor at Christchurch Hospital and was incredibly touched by your thoughts. We look forward to catching up at the 2020 bowls nationals.”


Our DRAGON BOAT TEAM competed in the Auckland Secondary Schools Championships on Sunday 24 March at Lake Pupuke along with 21 other teams. There were eleven girls only teams.

Congratulations to the team who made the Grand Final in the 200m race. They paddled extremely well to get a time of just under one minute to place 3rd, winning the Bronze medal. Congratulations to the team who have trained hard with their on-water Coach and Sweep Leslie Ash. A big thank you to all staff, family and friends who have supported the team this season.
