Be who God meant you to be, and you will set the world on fire St Catherine of Siena
Kia meingia i te Atua ki a koe, a ka whakatūria koe te Ao i runga i te ahi
Each year, as part of the Religious Education programme, all students at St Dominic's College attend a day retreat, organised and led by the Director of Religious Studies and staff from the Religious Education Department.
Retreat for me was a wonderful experience and opportunity to grow a better relationship with God. There was always a sense of reverence during prayer, it was peaceful. It gave me a deeper understanding of the importance of our community. How we need everyone to work together so we can achieve all our goals. You can achieve so little by yourself, but with others, you can do so much more. During my time at retreat, it helped everyone let go of their worries and focus on their spiritual wellbeing. Overall, I got to make new friends, make new spiritual goals and be a part of the St Dominic’s Community.

As a Dominican Catholic College, our Catholic Christian outlook on life and belief in the Gospel values underpin the spirit of our school.
This is reflected in the formal and educational experiences offered.
Pastoral Care and Guidance
St Dominic’s offers a guidance network that is geared to providing the best possible assistance to our students and their families, with help on personal matters, educational issues and career planning. Each student not only has a Form Teacher and a Year Level Dean, who will be primarily responsible for their development and wellbeing, but she will also have access to a Careers Advisor and an Academic Advisor, who can provide vocational and academic advice.
In addition, assistance with personal concerns is readily available from our College counsellors and a Public Health Nurse, and the College works with Maori and Pacific Island community groups.
