Welcome to Marist Catholic School

Kia Ora, Greetings

I have been at Marist Catholic School since 2001.  I have seen the school grow, been part of this journey and witnessed the major improvements in student academic levels and their holistic growth.

My focus in every decision that is made is to promote student engagement, continue to raise achievement levels and ensure a positive, nurturing school climate.  At Marist we want each and every student to be the very best they can be.  Our teachers have high expectations and encourage students to strive and persist with their learning. 

The Marist curriculum is designed to result in students who are confident, caring, enthusiastic, self initiators of their own learning.  Our Marist RICH values of respect, integrity, courage and humility are well known with students and teachers striving to live them every day.

All students benefit from the effective approaches and high quality Catholic education that Marist Catholic School provides.
