Building for the Future

In 2021 the board of the Catholic Diocese of Auckland approved two building projects for our college. The first stage, our stunning new Te Whare Mātauranga opened this year (see below), and the second stage is a performing arts block that is due to be completed at the end of 2025. 

It is anticipated that by the end of 2024, construction of the new Performing Arts building will have commenced, with completion due 16 months later. This building will accommodate Art, Dance, Drama and Music, along with the Deans' offices and a computer lab.

Attached is an artist’s impression of what the buildings will look like when the Performing Arts building is complete, as you are entering the college from the Rathgar Road entry.

These new buildings have been made possible due to the attendance dues that our past and present whanau have paid, plus the planning and commitment of the Catholic Diocese of Auckland to our college.

The donations that our past and current whanau have paid has enabled the college to purchase new furniture, equipment, and technology for this new building.

Te Whare Mātauranga

After years of waiting, planning and two years of construction, Te Whare Mātauranga, the College's new state-of-the-art 19-classroom building, opened to students on Wednesday, 7th February 2024.

This much-anticipated new building not only boasts a range of teaching and learning spaces but is also home to a brand new and much longed-for staffroom, a guidance and wellbeing centre, learning support facilities and whānau hospitality facilities (Te Rito Puāwai).

Te Whare Mātauranga (the home of wisdom/knowledge) is a striking statement piece for our college and complements our existing learning and community areas beautifully. St Dominic’s has a rich history of learning and community, and the new developments reflect this.
