Introduction

St Peter’a School is a state integrated full-primary Catholic school, catering for new entrants to Year 8. We were founded in 1927 by the Sisters of Our lady of the Missions (R.N.D.M.)
Our Catholic faith and the gospel values are at the heart of all we do. Our school values of manaakitanga (caring, compassionate, kind), whakaute (respect), rangimarie (peaceful, inclusive, empathetic), māia (confident, courageous, capable, resilient) and pākiki (curious, inquiring, enthusiastic) are promoted and embedded in our teaching and learning.
Our school has an inclusive, caring culture which supports all students to experience success. Students are encouraged to take risks with their learning and are supported to achieve their goals. Students background, culture, strengths, knowledge and interest are known, valued and affirmed. Students are encouraged to follow their passions and to strive towards their personal best.
We recognise the importance of hauora / well-being and take a holistic approach to education, nurturing students physical, spiritual, social and emotional well-being.
Staff are committed to helping students achieve and they strive to provide learning programmes that are child centred, authentic, purposeful and responsive to individual learning needs. They provide opportunities for students to work collaboratively, think critically, problem solve and manage their own learning. Digital technology is used effectively to support and enhance learning.
Our students participate in a range of cultural, musical and sporting activities. They are encourage to take on leadership roles and the concept of tuakana-teina, older students teaching younger students, is promoted through our buddy system and whanau groups.
If you would like to learn more about our school or would like to enquire about enrolling your child, please phone the school 03 3327598 or email office@saintpeters.school.nz.
