About Us

We are a small faith-based school and pride ourselves on our special Character. St Michael's School was founded in 1952 by The Presentation Nuns who immigrated from Ireland to service the Taita and Naenae areas.

We are a decile 2 school and have a wide range of cultures that we believe help enrich our children's lives. We believe communication between families and the school is key to our children's success and have an open door policy, should parents need the opportunity to discuss their child's learning.
