Our School

Welcome to Dominion Road School. We are a decile three contributing school with a roll of just over 300 students.  Dominion Road School is set on high grounds with a vista that overlooks Mt Roskill, Mt Eden and towards the Sky Tower.

In 2012 we celebrated our 75th Jubilee.  Over 150 guests joined our staff, students and school community to mark our very proud history.

The original school block is still in use (although renovated more than once in it’s 75 year history).  Over the past two years extensive renovation work has taken place throughout the school, and we will continue to upgrade our buildings and facilities over the next few years.

We have a stunning hall, solar heated pool, sufficient field space and a developing eco-trail.  We are currently host to three RTLB, and two Sunnydene School Satellite classes.
