2023 Enrolments

Due to high levels of interest in Taranaki Diocesan we have now filled our Year 9 roll for 2023.  We have a wait list for families who still wish to enroll their daughters in Year 9 should a vacancy become available.

Our day girl roll across the whole school is also at full capacity.  There are however some boarding vacancies for Year 10-Year 13 students.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of enrolment at Taranaki Dio in 2023 or beyond please contact our school office.
