Principal’s Message

Quality education is a gift for life. At Aquinas College, your child will be inspired, challenged and empowered within a learning community that knows and cares for them.

We are committed to educating the whole person to strive for excellence in accordance with the Catholic tradition of hope, faith and love. Success in the classroom, in the wider curriculum, and personal growth is recognised and celebrated. We are justifiably proud of our record of academic achievement, as seen in our NCEA results over time. Our commitment to Scholarship ensures all learners are nurtured and supported in their learning to realise their potential.

Our students are supported and encouraged to pursue their gifts and talents. We provide extensive opportunities in sports, the arts and cultural pursuits. No matter their interest or passion, we aim to encourage, grow and challenge our young people to be the best they can be.

Students at Aquinas College benefit from outstanding pastoral care and guidance. We commit to ensuring our young people belong in a safe, compassionate space of tolerance and acceptance in our school community. As a Catholic community, we are called to encounter the loving and merciful face of Jesus Christ in all circumstances as is modelled to us in the teachings of the Gospel.

I invite you to join us on the next phase of your child’s educational journey by making Aquinas College your first choice in college education.
