St Teresa's School Website
Term Two 2013
An important task this term is to elect a new Board of Trustees. An effective Board is a vital aspect of all schools and we need trustees who are committed to the continued development of all aspects of our school. Are you interested in contributing in this way? Please see Penny for further information.
You might be interested in supporting our school in a less formal way - by being involved in the P.T.A. We had a super meeting last term, with a number of great ideas being shared. The first few projects are underway under the leadership of Jackie Ott. If you are interested in contributing to this aspect of our school please contact Jackie.

"Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier." Mother Teresa
At our school we have developed a way of being that replaces the old school rules. Everyone is expected to follow the St. Teresa’s Way to ensure that we are all able to learn in a happy and safe environment.
St. Teresa’s Way
Our school is a compassionate, enthusiastic place.
Our community shows love in everything we do and say.
We learn from our mistakes and how to do great things.
The Proprietors of Catholic Integrated schools and Christian parents who entrust their children to the school have the responsibility to ensure that the Special Character of the school is maintained and preserved. The Special Character of the school is defined in the Integration Act as "a Roman Catholic School in which the whole school community, through the general school programme and in its' Religious instructions and observances, exercises the right to live and teach the values of Jesus Christ. These values are as expressed in the Scriptures and in the practices, worship and doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church, as determined from time to time by the Roman Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Christchurch."
