Year 7 and 8 - Intermediate at St Patrick's School


St Patrick’s School seeks to provide a range of opportunities for children to develop leadership skills. 

It’s our goal to give them the best preparation for college and to see them complete primary school on a high note.

Over the years, we’ve found 11 and 12-year-olds achieve amazing things with focus and direction. They welcome the opportunity to lead. They have an enormous appetite for guiding and supporting children younger than themselves – and they’re at a stage in life where they really want to give back. Student leadership is also seen as a vital key in the development of choice and student voice. Our students’ extra-curricular activities add to the strength and sense of community that is fostered here. 

So, we’ve developed a whole-school programme for senior students, featuring a range of initiatives, including:

  • leadership (planning and hosting events such as liturgies, sports days, and assemblies)
  • buddying (with younger students)
  • peer mentoring (one another)
  • service (doing things for others in the community).


  • Special Character Leaders – must be baptised and hold a ministry in the Church
  • House Leaders
  • Kapa Haka Leaders
  • Sport Leaders
  • Peer Mediators
  • Guardian Angels
  • Bus Wardens
  • Librarians
  • Office Duty
  • Young Vinnies team


From 2024, St Patrick's students will no longer be taking technology sessions at Taupō nui a Tia College, but technology sessions will take place onsite on a Tuesday during the middle block.  The students will receive instruction in a variety of different technology areas over the year.  This is a very exciting initiative and we are looking forward to offering food technology, material technology, digital technology, robotics and other exciting subjects.
