Our values of honesty, integrity, respectfulness and empathy lead the way inside and outside of the classroom. 


These are underpinned by the Māori principles of manākitanga, whanaungatanga and kotahitanga. With your help, every Dio girl will have the confidence, curiosity and knowledge she needs to be the difference in a changing world. Working at Dio, you’ll be reminded every day through our students of the contribution you are making to this.
