St Joseph’s School consists of three branches – the school community, St Peter’s Parish and the whanau of Tawhiti a Maru Marae. These three branches of the school are interwoven with regard to school liturgy, support/tautoko and fundraising. Parents are involved in many ways assisting with grounds, maintenance/improvements, fundraising, coaching and managing sports teams and assisting on school camps and trips. Parents/caregivers show a real interest in the learning, progress and achievement of their children.
Student achievement, support for quality teaching and learning processes and sound management of school structures and resources is significant and critical. The Board of Trustees and Principal are committed to building upon leadership to support further development of effective teaching practice in order to make a significant contribution to student success and achievement.
