Welcome to


Good today, better tomorrow

Haere mai, St Mary’s School welcomes you

St Mary’s is a Catholic School teaching children from New Entrants to Year 6. Our school is founded in the Mercy and Gospel values; they come from the words and letters of Catherine McAuley, the founder of the Mercy Sisters/ Nga Whaea Atawhai o Aotearoa who started St Mary’s School:
  • Love: We belong to God, all in us is His
  • Faith: Put your whole confidence in God
  • Hope: Good today, better tomorrow

Our Values


We belong to God, all in us is his


Good today, better tomorrow


Put you whole confidence in God


Once again, our Home and School Committee is absolutely blown away by the generosity of our whānau and their sharing of talent, recipes, time and skills. Children learn from what they see and hear around them, they learn by watching what we do. As such, our children are blessed to be living and learning in such a vibrant and giving community.

The school staff is especially grateful to the dedicated committee. They worked together to achieve more as a group than any individual possibly could. There’s more than 400 pages of recipes that have been cooked, written up and photographed with love and care.

The book costs $50 and has received rave reviews. Books can be ordered at the school office or online by contacting the Treasurer of the Home and School Association, Mr Drew Goater at drewgoater@gmail.com who can process your payment and promptly post your book(s) anywhere in the world.


Our school is an essential part of the Blessed Sacrament Parish. The Sunday Mass is celebrated every week at 9am and once a term the whole school joins the parish and leads the celebration.

Our St Mary’s family is part of the parish family; we believe parents are the first teachers in faith, are supported by the parish and the school to help the children follow their growth journey. We work closely with the parish office to develop and deliver the Sacramental programmes, particularly Reconciliation, Confirmation and First Holy Communion.

2021 Sacramental programme begins with the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Lessons begin at the 9am Mass on Sunday 28th February. If you would like your child to be part of this group please complete a form that you will find at the back of the Church, the parish office or the school office.
