Overview

Kia ora, Kumusta, Talofa lava and Hello.

St Mary’s School is a state-integrated catholic primary school for boys and girls up to Year 8 and was established by the Sisters of Mercy in 1894. Our mission statement states that we aim to provide a catholic education that encourages all students to realise their full potential in the family, community and society. In our students’ learning we want them to strive to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, walk in his footsteps, and be his voice in the community.

We provide modern flexible learning spaces for our students to learn in.  These attractive buildings enable our students to learn in warm, bright and flexible spaces which suit all learners.  Our central location on Manchester St (Bealey Avenue end) enables us to access many of the city’s exciting developments and helps us provide different learning activities due to our proximity to local amenities.

At St Mary’s School we pride ourselves on our diverse range of cultures and the small school family atmosphere which is evident throughout. All our students are valued and nurtured in a supportive catholic environment and we want them to succeed and to feel a sense of belonging. We welcome any interest and encourage you to contact us for further information.
