Hello, Tena Koutou katoa,Talofa lava, Kia orana, Malo e lelei, Hola.

St. Mary's Catholic School provides quality Catholic education in the first instance to Catholic children and families who live within the St. Mary's Catholic Parish boundary.

As stated by the New Zealand Council of Proprietors of Catholic Integrated Schools, authentic Catholic education is based on four foundation principles, these being that a Catholic school:

A.  Provides Catholic education;

B.  Strives for educational excellence;

C.  Contributes to the Church's mission; and

D.  Contributes to society. 

St. Mary's Catholic School prides itself on the way it develops a caring environment in which all students learn and play. We are also proud of our fine academic reputation, school facilities and grounds and in the way we develop a student's spiritual, academic, physical, social and emotional well-being.

As a school, we aim to work in partnership with parents and members of our church community and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with you all.
