Our four school houses create a sense of healthy competition and camaraderie throughout the year, as well as forming vertical form classes for older students to lead and support the younger girls.
Each girl is allocated a house when she enrols at Taranaki Dio. If she has had a connection with the school previously through her sister, mother, grandmother, aunt or other family members previously attending, she can also be placed in that house to continue on the family relationship.
Our houses are also our vertical form classes enabling our older students to provide leadership and support for the younger girls.
