St Brendan’s School

Welcome to our school.  You will find St Brendan’s Catholic School challenges students to be the best that they can be, whilst walking hand in hand with Christ.

We are very familiar with the whakatauki, ‘he waka eke noa’. Pope Francis used this during the Urbi and Orbi blessing on the steps of St Peter’s Basilica in March 2020 while New Zealand was in lockdown.  “We have realized that we are on the same boat, all of us fragile … but at the same time important and needed, all of us called to row together … only together can we do this”.  We were called to row together, through the calm, the storms and the uncertainty.  Together we took strength from our faith, we held onto hope and we kept connected with our school community during a very challenging time. Covid-19 has continued to have an impact on our school, community, and country. We are blessed with an amazing team of professionals and a supportive Parish and community who continue to row together.
