Welcome to

St Mary’s Catholic School Tauranga

A warm welcome to St Mary’s which is an integrated Catholic Primary School catering for children from new entrants to year six. We are proud of our history and heritage and value the strong bond that continues with our founding order, the Cluny Sisters. The Special Character of our school is expressed through the students, the teachers and the wider school community, living and teaching the Gospel Values. At St Mary’s our committed and dedicated staff set high expectations for all children and we aim to work in partnership with you.

St Mary’s is a place where children have positive enjoyable learning experiences, a place where we can celebrate learning and achievement. Our aim is to develop confident, faith-filled learners. The teaching staff have a range of expertise, interests and experience. The teachers work as a team sharing professional skills and knowledge to help children achieve. Their programmes are aimed at assisting each child’s spiritual, academic, physical, social and emotional development. We are dedicated to helping your children on their learning journeys.

Community involvement is a major focus of our school. We are fortunate to be supported by the Cluny Sisters, St Thomas Aquinas Parish Community as well as a very active Parent Group.

We look forward to you finding out more about what a Catholic Education can offer your family and together we can create the best possible learning environment for your children.
