In our Catholic school it is extremely important to know, believe, act upon and model the Catholic faith. It is important for our children to learn about what it is to be a Catholic in our community, in the wider community and in New Zealand and across the world. It is important for us to know the traditions and protocol of Catholic tradition and pass these onto our children. Mary was always faithful to God and Christ Jesus, supporting and encouraging throughout her life.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding." Proverbs 3:5

Our school aims to have a nurturing, safe and positively disciplined atmosphere where children will feel a sense of belonging and have an acceptance of cultural diversity.

Our Student Vision

Sancta Maria Catholic Primary School learners are unique because they take pride in themselves which means they strive for excellence. Whilst always striving to reach our goals and live by our values we are still joyful, caring and thoughtful to family, school and community.

Heavenly Father,

You blessed the Virgin Mary with the fullness of grace.

She is our model of faith, hope and love.

We give this new year to her intercession and ask for her holy prayers. 

Place our needs into the protection of her motherly love.

With her help, we want our faith to grow.

Give us an increase in the virtue of hope when troubles tempt us to despair.

Guide us in understanding Your infinite love. 

And join our hearts, dear Lord, to the Holy Mother's Immaculate Heart, 

so that we may improve in loving everyone unconditionally, in imitation of our Saviour Jesus.
