"Children are a gift from the Lord" Psalm 127:3
After careful consultation with our wider school community, we have opted to become a cohort entry school from 2020 onwards.
Students growing Catholic faith in their hearts, minds and actions, and who are confident, contented, collaborative and critically discerning.
Walking with Mary, as our guide to God we are:
- Full of Grace - Obedient - Faithful - Compassionate -
- Thoughtful - Hopeful -Contented - Determined
We live our values of being Hopeful and Faithful through the VIRTUES of...
Respect, Justice, Commitment, Unity
Our wish is for our children to be
reflective and stop and think before they act.
We would like them to have moments of quiet and still and enjoy this time to think about their actions, the actions of others, their faith and the faith of others.
We hope they will learn to think of others and how to be a person for others.
Mary’s first response was to think of others.
For the whole law is fulfilled in one word:
"You shall love your neighbour as yourself.”
At Sancta Maria Primary School our school curriculum is based on the principles of the NZ Curriculum of:
Our Student Vision
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.
