He Mihi Nui Kia Koutou
Haere Mai Haere Mai Nau Mai Haere Mai

Greetings and Welcome to St Mary's Catholic School, Tauranga. Our school was founded by the St Joseph's Sister of Cluny. We are proud of our history and heritage and value the strong bond that continues with our founding order.

The Special Catholic Character of our school is expressed through the students, teachers and wider school community living and teaching Gospel Values. At St Mary's Children develop a passion for learning through quality teaching and a balanced yet diverse range of learning experiences. We encourage and foster a love of learning and strive for excellence within a quality learning environment.

We have an extremely talented and professional team of staff members, supported by a dedicated Board of Trustees and a committed parent community. Our harbour setting is second to none; a fantastic place for children to come and learn, and a rewarding place for teachers to come and teach. It is our collective aim to provide the very best learning opportunities for all of our students.

Parents and caregivers, are of vital importance to the success of our school. You are the first educators of your children and your positive support of your child's school education provides encouragement to your child, their teacher and helps build the spirit of the school.

Education is a lifetime journey that you will begin at St Mary's Catholic School. We are dedicated to preparing your children for their journey of learning. We welcome your interest and warmly invite you to visit or call for further information.

Nga Mihi Nui
