About Us

St Anne’s is held in high esteem in the Whanganui community for the strong values it has and for the high expectations in the areas of learning, sport, behaviour and attitude. These high expectations are achieved with the help of families who actively support all aspects of this school. The focus of St Anne’s Catholic School in both its faith and academic programmes is to promote the values and teachings of Jesus Christ. These values are expressed through the scriptures, practices and doctrines of the Catholic Church. The strong links to St Anne’s Parish over a long period of time have helped to form the unique family feeling in the school.

Message from the principal

I welcome you and your family to St Anne’s Catholic School and thank you for considering our school as `the choice’ for your child’s education. Selecting the right school for your child is one of the most challenging and important decisions you will make for your child.  School must be a rewarding, stimulating and positive place for your child to be.  We want our school to be a great place to learn and a fun place to be. Academic, physical, social and spiritual development form the foundation for your child’s education.  We believe in a quality, balanced education that meets each of these needs, developing life-long learners, accentuating the abilities and special talents of your child in a framework of Catholic belief and practice. We welcome you to our community at St. Anne’s.  Please feel free to call into the office or approach a member of our staff with your queries.  We are here, not only to teach your child but also to support you during your time at St Anne’s.
