St Peter Chanel is an iconic Catholic school based in beautiful sunny Otaki.

It is rich in local history and has been a shining light for many students and their families over many, many years. The school is set in the beautiful surroundings of St Marys church and our catholic Marae, Te Marae o Hine, at the foot of our sacred hill, Pukekaraka.

Our children are our future. Let their light shine so that people see the good things they do.

The school community and BOT are committed to ensuring that our students are educated, cared for and nurtured in a holistic learning environment. Christian and school values of aroha (love), manaakitanga (look after), rangimarie (peacefulness) and whanaungatanga (positive relationships) form the foundation from which we provide a safe, healthy and happy environment. From this, our students have the opportunity to learn to their full potential, so that they may shine their light on the world.
