WELCOME TO
ST PATRICK'S KAIAPOI


​​​​​​​Haere mai and welcome to the St Patrick's School website!

St Patrick's Kaiapoi is an integrated full primary Catholic school offering education with a special character to children from Year 1 to 8. Established in 1926 by the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions, the school is an integral part of St Peter Chanel Parish, Waimakariri. A special feature of our school is the focus on developing life-long learners who are motivated, enthusiastic and collaborative. 

The Mission sisters' values of caring, co-operating and called to others, underpin our school philosophy which focuses on our learners being confident, and inquiring self-managers. The St Patrick's School Board is committed to providing our learners with capabale and caring teachers and support staff and modern classrooms to enhance our learning environment. We aim to foster the talents, potential and abilities of each individual student, while encouraging them to live their lives according to the values and teachings of Jesus Christ.
