Saint Francis Catholic School

St Francis Catholic School overlooks the upper reaches of the Waitamata Harbour – the sea is an important part of our children’s lives – they visit and learn about the special mangrove habitats, enjoy swimming and sailing from nearby Pt Chevalier beaches and work towards having a clean and safe environment for both people and marine life. Looking after the environment is an important part of the school’s values – and St Francis is the patron saint of the environment and animals. The St Francis Whale Tail sculpture celebrates our respect of the environment and values creation as holy and blessed.
