A very warm welcome to our school website if you are a visitor and welcome back if you are already part of our school family.
We are a Catholic Full Primary school, with a maximum roll of 195 children, serving the Glen Innes and surrounding areas. We were founded by the Holy Faith Sisters in 1958 and continue to follow this faith charism.
At St Pius X, our committed and dedicated staff set high expectations for achievement and behaviour and aim to work in partnership with families to provide the best possible education for all our children. We are a school where children have positive and enjoyable learning experiences and want to learn. We are part of the Manaiakalani Community of Learning (CoL) which is leading the implementation of twenty-first century teaching and learning in New Zealand. We are a digital school where all students from Years 4 to 8 use their own chromebook and younger students use technology as much as possible to enhance their learning. All students in our community have access to free wireless internet at home through the Tamaki Learning Net.
"The Principal, staff and Board of Trustees work to build strong relationships with families, the parish and wider community. The parish and school work so closely together that they are spoken about as ‘one’.”
