Circles of Care

Circles of Care

This is the time for your daughter to grow, learn and explore herself and the world around her. So it’s essential that she has a support network that cares for her whole wellbeing. Our pastoral care goes beyond classmates to include housemates, buddies, teachers, deans, Chaplains and family. That support network is about looking out for our students and looking after them when they need it – and it’s a big part of what makes Dio different.

Buddies and Peer Support

Buddies and Peer Support

We have Buddy and Peer Support Programmes at all year levels. That means your daughter will always have someone to talk to and a friendly face to help her settle into a new school year. Alongside our buddies, the Peer Support Programme encourages leadership and teaches our girls
skills that help prepare them for life’s challenges.

Our Chaplains

Our Chaplains

Our Anglican heritage underpins our vision and who we are as a School community. Our Chaplains are an everyday part of school life, helping nurture faith and personal growth and encouraging our girls to think deeply about the intellectual, moral and social questions that
play out all around them. Our Chaplains offer a confidential Christian presence for our students, staff and wider School community.

Collaboration and competition

Collaboration and competition

Every girl at Dio will join one of eight School Houses, each with its own colours, badge and motto. Our Houses build a close sense of community and belonging but there is always a place for friendly competition and teamwork. We hold inter-House challenges in Sports, Music, Dance and Debating and at the end of each year, the house with the most points takes away the Stark Cup.
