St Dominic’s Catholic Primary School is an excellent Catholic school enrolling children from Year 1 to Year 6.
We are a family orientated school that teaches the Catholic faith. We have dedicated programmes and initiatives in operation at all levels in the school.
St Dominic’s Catholic Primary School prides itself on providing a high quality educational programme that meets the needs of the individual. We believe in students having pride in themselves, their families and their school. We work hard to foster a positive, caring environment where differences are celebrated and acknowledged. We use our four school values at all times throughout the school day to help and support the children learning and their social development.
School provides many opportunities for your child and we believe that it is the students' responsibility to make the most of these opportunities, to work hard and try their best. We expect our students to be kind to each other and have fun at school.
Primary school is a place where you learn all about the basics but it is also where you learn a lot about yourself and your place in the world.
Making and keeping friends is a big part of early school years. A primary school has a huge impact on the person you become. We are very lucky at this school because we have our Catholic faith to support all that we do and learn. Living as Jesus taught us to live is ultimately our goal and every day we try to reach this goal.
We do this by the way we speak to each other in the classroom, the way we play with each other in the playground and the way that we are supported in our learning by the teachers.
All of the staff here at St Dominic's see themselves as learners too and we learn many things from the children every day. Life should always be about learning. We constantly look for ways that we can keep improving and developing our school, and each year we take steps towards our goal of providing excellent education.
We model this way of thinking from St Dominic who spent his life learning from others and especially learning from God.
St Dominic's Catholic Primary School holds on tight to its Dominican traditions and at all times ensures that the children understand they are part of a bigger family.
Our school values reflect the Dominican pillars and we use our school values at all times. Our four values are Respect, Aroha, Perseverance and Unity. They are the ‘glue’ that binds us.
Our school website provides a glimpse of our Catholic character and spirit. I hope to welcome you in person to our great school and look forward to getting to know you and your child.
So what are we all about?
