Our Year 7 and 8 Programme

In Year 7 and 8 at St Patrick’s we offer a high quality education programme that encourages all students to be ‘Called to Shine’. In single cell classrooms with the added ability to collaborate when necessary, we provide the right balance between support and challenge for our tamariki.

To develop the students’ leadership qualities, we run the St Patrick’s Ambassador Programme which has three components; Passion Projects, Outdoor Activities and Community Service. Over the two year programme the students complete two Passion Projects, eight outdoor activities and twenty examples of Community Service.

We have one class at each year level with anywhere between 20 and 25 students in each class.

Opportunities similar to other full primary and intermediates are provided with weekly technology off-site, kapa haka, special choir, jump jam, sports etc. to name a few.

With St Patrick’s being a Catholic School, our Special Character is governed by the Mercy Values of Social Justice, Service, Compassion, Respect, Hospitality and Excellence.

We pride ourselves on being the best we can, as often as possible across all academic, cultural and sporting experiences.
