St Columba's Catholic Primary School



Welcome to St Columba's Catholic Primary School


Mission Statement

In the footsteps of Jesus, and based on Catholic teachings, St Columba’s Catholic School will provide a holistic education for all students.

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Term 3, 2016.

Kia ora, I am Gareth Duncan, Principal, and it is a pleasure to be joining the team at St Columba’s Catholic School which was founded by the Sisters of the Mission in Hamilton. It is my pleasure to be taking my turn to walk in the footsteps of Jesus and serve our St Columba’s School and Parish community.

As a Catholic community we are very proud of our history and heritage and the Special Catholic Character of our school which is expressed through the students, the teachers and the wider school community, living and teaching the Gospel Values.

Communication is a key to ensure the school and parents work in a partnership to get the best possible learning outcomes and I look forward to working with you throughout the term in whatever capacity you are able. I would invite you to take the time to attend as many events as possible throughout the term and to participate and learn about the educational opportunities and experiences available to your child.

On behalf of our supportive BOT, PTFA and staff, I extend a warm welcome to you all. Please enjoy looking around our website and take the time to stop in and say hello when you get a chance.

God Bless you all

Gareth Duncan
