Kia Ora Koutou, Talofa, Maui, Bula, Kumusta, Talofa, Ni hao, Namaste, Guten Tag, Hello,  Xin chao,  Malo e lelei, Salam

Thank you for visiting our website!

We are a Catholic Integrated Primary School and we offer a Catholic Education for students aged from Year 1 to Year 8. We are located in Te Kuiti, which is situated in the Northern King Country, in the Waitomo District  - famous for being the shearing capital of the world. We are the parish school for St George’s Parish in Te Kuiti and St Mary’s Parish in Piopio.

We exist to provide a sound, balanced education in a Catholic environment, to prepare young people for their life as Christians in the community and to strive for excellence. We pride ourselves on offering an education that will enable all students to develop their talents to the full in order to fulfil their unique role in creation. The Religious Education programme and our school’s Special Character are vital keys to enable the achievements of our Mission. We aim to enable our students to serve as witnesses to moral and spiritual values in the wider world.

Our school work in partnership with the parish and the wider Church Community as well as the Parents, who are deemed to be the first and foremost educators of our children, to develop healthy relationships with others which encompasses both rights and responsibilities. We endorse the aim of Catholic Schools to teach students to preserve the balance and integrity of the physical world for the Glory of God.

We give practical recognition to the special importance of the Treaty of Waitangi and deem it appropriate that all children in our school be actively encouraged to appreciate and respect Tikanga Maori. 

Our website was developed and are maintained to provide you with an overview of life at our school.

We look forward to meeting you!

God Bless

Ma te Atua koutou e manaaki
