St Joseph's School
Te Kura o Hato Hōhepa ki a Tāhuna

Kia Ora Koutou

We are a full primary state integrated school (from New Entrants to Year 8) with a special Catholic character. 

Non-Catholic families can enrol their child.  

The Dominican sisters came to teach at our school in 1883.  We continue to follow the Dominican way by:

  • Being honest
  • Striving for excellence in learning
  • Always doing our best
  • Listening to God’s call
  • Doing our bit in our school and community

We strive to offer the best learning opportunities we can that develop the whole child, are child centered, authentic and purposeful. 

If you would like to know more, we would love to show you around our small school with a big heart.
