St. Mary's Catholic School is set on a well-developed 7 hectare property located in Clark Road, a well established residential area in Papakura. Our environment has permanent shade areas and a number of large mature shade trees. We also have four tennis courts, and rugby and soccer fields and a school hall.

The majority of families live within Papakura City and our community is broadly representative of the diverse community that makes up Papakura.

Each year the school runs a Gala which sees large numbers of the Papakura community attending. This acts as a major fundraising event and a wonderful opportunity for our community to gather together.

The school also runs an annual Mission Day where students raise money for other students in need around the world. Our present Mission focus involves support for the Mission work of our founding order, the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions, in Myanmar.



With the support of our hard-working Gala and PTFA committees, money has been raised to ensure the rooms all have data projectors, interactive Mimios, computers and supporting software.

Wireless internet allows us to have broadband access throughout the school.

We also have additional pods of laptops that are used on a rostered basis throughout the school to provide further support for student learning.

The Board of Trustees have embarked on an ambitious programme for replacement of all classroom furniture, to ensure that modern learning environments support student learning.
