Welcome to St Patrick’s School
We hope that this website will give you a glimpse into the rich and full life of our wonderful school.
We are delighted that you are interested in getting to know us.
St Patrick’s School offers a Catholic Primary Education for boys and girls from Year 1 to Year 8.
Founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1951 and then guided by the Sisters of Jesus and Mary from 1961 – 1996,
we continue to provide a quality Catholic education that in partnership
with family and parish nurtures the faith and unique gifts of
every child to shine.
Thank you for your interest in St Patrick’s School.
We welcome your inquiry and consideration of our school community as a place for your child’s education.
Education is going through huge transitions and Parents often wonder if a bigger school might offer more for their child, but bigger is not always best when it comes to the relationship between student learning and school size.
Research is showing that far from being disadvantaged by attending small schools, children actually do better.
Through the Mercy Sister Values our children will develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge needed to become confident, motivated, self-directed life-long learners.
At St Patrick’s we endeavour to demonstrate the Mercy Sister Values in our words and actions every day.
At St Patrick’s we have endless reasons why we want to build partnerships with parents and whānau.
It is important for us both to have a clear idea of, and shared understanding about, the purpose of home-school partnerships, to promote wellbeing and develop healthy social relationships as well as focus on your child’s learning needs.
