St Dominic’s Catholic College is served by a network of bus and rail services.
Students can travel by train to Sturges Road Station, just a short walking distance from the College. There are also several school bus services that transport students to local schools, as well as many public bus services in the area.
Only specialist textbooks will be available for purchase through the College. General stationery items can be purchased online or instore at Warehouse Stationery (please use our school code BYSUASQ) or OfficeMax.
Students will be issued with a Student Organiser to keep a record of homework and results. This diary also contains day-to-day information about the College and can be used by parents to communicate with teachers.
All Year 7 to Year 13 students will be required to have a suitable mobile device to use in class such as a chromebook, netbook or laptop.
For parents seeking advice on managing device use in their own home, we recommend watching the Nigel Latta programme “Screenagers: Living On-line” which is available on TVNZ On Demand. His Power Off Tips are also worth a read and some thought. If you are looking for more information on on-line issues in general, we recommend you visit the Netsafe parenting pages. You may also like to check out the Our Pact app which gives parents some measure of control over their child’s mobile devices.
The Senior Options Booklet is available to senior students, and their parents/guardians, to assist them in choosing their subjects for the following year.
It includes a list of staff who can assist with course selections, curriculum pathways for years 9 to 13, NCEA information, course requirements for each year level, course outlines for individual subjects, future pathways information, and more.
At the beginning of the year, senior students will have their courses confirmed at pre-enrolment days.
