About Our School:
Presently, our school has a total of 8 classrooms and students all ranging from Year 1 to Year 8. Our senior classes (Year 4- 8) are one-to-one with electronic devices, such as Chromebooks and Ipads. We are a Google School, and use such portals as Seesaw to present work.
PB4L: We are a PB4L (Positive Behaviour for Learning) School
Lunchtime Clubs: At Lunchtimes we have activities on various days - Gymnastics, Lego Club, Enviro Group, Gardening Club, Upcycling Club and Card Making
Student Council: Classes elect two student counselors which attend a weekly meeting and give a voice to the students in how things are going and needs.
Kapahaka: We have a Junior and Senior Kapa Haka group
Showquest: Every year St Mary's enters the Regional Showquest as part of our Arts Curriculum
Parents must inform the school office before 9.00am if their child is going to be away from school.
Attendance Dues for the Catholic Schools in the Hamilton Diocese are $444.00 (incl GST) per year, (i.e. $110 per term or $8.54 per week) plus an optional $40 Catholic Character donation.
This is payable to the Catholic Diocese of Hamilton (it is not through our school). These forms will be included in your child's enrolment pack.
You can either pay the full amount or set up an automatic payment of $8.54 per week for 52 weeks.
Assistance is always available for families needing help with Attendance Dues. Please contact our school office for more information about full or partial rebates.
ORAL LANGUAGE PROGRAMME
At St Mary's we provide an Oral Language Programme for 4 year olds. Parents are invited to be a part of the learning journey as their children prepare for their schooling years at St Mary's. Every 2nd Tuesday the programme is held in Room 1 and led by Mrs Karen McChlery (New Entrant/Year 1 Teacher).
