St. Mary's Catholic Primary School Gisborne

Dear Parents/Caregivers

A warm welcome to St Mary's Catholic School which is an integrated Catholic Primary School catering for children from New Entrants to Year Six. Our maximum roll number is 250 and our aim is to keep classroom sizes manageable. At St Mary's our committed and dedicated staff set high expectations for all children and we aim to work in partnership with you, setting annual goals with you and your child to aspire to achieve.

St Mary's is a place where children have positive enjoyable learning experiences, a place where we can celebrate Learning and achievement. We encourage our children to participate in a variety of sport and cultural activities.

Teachers’ programmes are aimed at assisting each child's spiritual, academic, physical, social and emotional development. We aim to prepare children to be lifelong learners and active citizens of the community.

Community involvement is a major focus of our school. We are fortunate to be supported by the St Mary's Parish Community as well as an effective Board of Trustees and a very active Friends of St Mary’s Group. We are proud to be Catholic and live our faith actively here at school as well as through our Parish.

We look forward to you finding out more about what a Catholic Education can offer your family and together we can create the best possible Learning environment for your children.
