Supporting our children's learning & faith journey

A warm welcome to our school

St Ignatius Catholic School, located in the tranquil seaside suburb of St Heliers, close to Auckland’s CBD, is a Decile 10 co-ed Integrated Primary School.

We enjoy the support of parents and caregivers who value ‘OUR WAY’ – our traditions, our holistic delivery of curriculum and our community/family atmosphere. We value those who have high expectations for their children’s learning outcomes and are actively supportive of and interested in the children’s learning journeys.


A rich history

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.
