St Patrick's Catholic School Te Awamutu

From the Principal



Tena koutou katoa, Welcome to St Patrick's Catholic School!

We believe that we are here to provide 21st Century Catholic Education, that enables children to strive for excellence, centred on the teachings of Jesus Christ. 

Our school was founded by the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart and we continue to promote the Charism of their foundress, St Mary of the Cross MacKillop, who had deep faith and love of God, great courage, a love of children and families. 

Our motto, 'Empowered today for tomorrow's world' is about standing tall and being

empowered for tomorrow wherever that may take us.'  

As a Catholic integrated School we teach the NZ Curriculum and the Religious

Education Curriculum of the Catholic Church as both a stand alone curriculum and

woven through other Learning areas. 

We have strong links to our parish and use the church for Prayer Assemblies each Monday morning where we concentrate on a Virtue each week. 

You are most welcome at our school.    

God bless 

Cass Sutton

Acting Principal
