School Association

The Waikato Diocesan School Association is a team of dedicated  parents who make the 'Dio Difference' through supporting school events and running fundraisers. Some of the events the School Association has organised over the years include Bridge Day, Dio Ladies Night, DioArtX, Dio Day Out – Gardens and Art and Dio Golf Day.

The Association also runs the Dio Stock Scheme which involves our rural families donating calves or grazing for calves for funds. Click here for more information

Dio Bear's are another scheme where the Association make and sell the gorgeous Dio Bears (dressed in junior or senior uniforms) to our graduating classes and special visitors to Dio. 

All this hard work sees the Association raise funds which are donated back to the school for the direct benefit of our students.

The Dio School Association is a very friendly group and is open to any Dio parent/ caregiver to join. We warmly welcome all newcomers and their ideas. Please check the school calendar for meeting dates and times.

Dio Golf Day

The ‘Dio Golf Day’ is on for 2022 and will be held on Sunday 20 March at the Ngaruawahia Golf Club.  We hope it will be another great event like in 2019.

This is a wonderful opportunity to participate in one of Waikato Diocesan School for Girls’ most popular fundraisers.  

Get a team together and register to support this fun event.

We are also seeking expressions of interest from businesses and individuals who would like to help with sponsorship.
