Welcome to St.Ignatius Catholic School.

St Ignatius Catholic School, situated in the tranquil seaside suburb of St Heliers Bay, an established residential area close to Auckland's CBD, is a Decile 10 co-ed Integrated Primary School. 

Catholic education based on gospel values of Jesus Christ, is provided for New Entrant to Year 6 children who live within our zone which is based on the traditional parish zones of St Ignatius, St Heliers, and Mother of Perpetual Help, Glendowie, the faith communities to which most of our children belong.

The original two roomed school was opened in 1927 by the Josephite sisters, the order founded by Australia's first canonised saint, St Mary of the Cross MacKillop. In November 2014, the two storey St Mary MacKillop block comprising flexible learning spaces was opened. This welcome addition provides further accommodation in which our community of active, engaged learners can develop the skills, attitudes and knowledge required now and for the future.

A maximum roll of 321 students has been approved by the Ministry of Education.

Our school enjoys the support of parents and caregivers who value "OUR WAY" - our traditions, holisitic delivery of curriculum, community/family atmosphere and have high expectations for their children's learning outcomes and are actively supportive of and very interested in, the children's learning journeys.
