Principal's Welcome

Tēnā koutou and a warm welcome to St Patrick’s Catholic School, Taupō.

St Patrick’s is a friendly and vibrant school, closely linked with our Parish community. We are a
state-integrated, full primary Catholic School in Nukuhau. We have a roll of approximately 280
students from Year 1 to Year 8.

Our school vision, ‘Te Whakapono me ana Mahi – Faith in Action’ calls for our school to actively
live out the teachings of Christ. We pride ourselves on being able to provide a range of learning
experiences encompassing spiritual, academic, physical, social and emotional development.
We are dedicated to helping each and every child on their learning journeys.

The school provides a safe and supportive environment where all our children can shine
through God’s love, by purposefully providing a learning environment that nurtures and grows
every child. We aim to ensure that when our children leave St Patrick’s they have the
necessary skills, values and attitudes to continue their education journey and to take their place
as strong role models within society and the Catholic Church.

I warmly invite you to visit our school or ring for further information.

Ngā mihi nui

St Patrick's School Prayer

Loving God
This is our school.
May we be a whānau of love, faith in action,
where all are welcome.
May we always treasure our Church,
our environment, and our Taupō community.
May the Holy Spirit dwell within us
and guide us in all we say and do.
We ask St Patrick to pray for us.
We make this prayer through
Christ our Lord,
