Who we are
Within our Catholic community, we empower learners to strive for personal excellence and to be future-focused.
Ki roto i te Hapori Katorika ka hikitia te akonga ki te tihi o te maunga hei oranga mo nga rā o mua.
Our Vision is to grow all ākonga to have the qualities of the St Pius X learner which are Faith-Filled, Culturally Aware, Collaborators, Risk Takers, Creative Thinkers and Self Managers.
I am a learner who lives the ways of Jesus to make a better life for myself and others.
- Culturally Aware
I am a learner who is culturally aware. I know my identity and respect the cultural traditions and heritage of our community.
I am a learner who is a team player. I engage with teachers and my peers, building partnerships within our school.
- Risk Takers
I am a learner who is resilient. I am willing to try new ways to achieve goals, even when they might be challenging.
- Creative Thinkers
I am a learner who is curious and future-focused and look for different ways to solve problems.
I am a learner who can act independently, take ownership of my learning & be responsible for my actions.
Our Charism and Motto
The charism of our school follows Mary MacKillop’s teaching of ‘Never see a need without doing something about it.’ Through this, we have developed our motto Mōhiotanga – Knowing, Mahinga – Doing, Manaakitianga – Caring, which is actively alive in our school.
Our Gospel Values
St Pius X School works hard to establish a community of faith and learning; one which recognises the uniqueness and dignity of the individual and operates on the Gospel Values. Our values are expressed through the charism of St Mary MacKillop:
“Together we follow in the footsteps of Jesus.” John 17: 20-21
“Give to others, and God will give to you.” Luke 6:38
“Love your neighbour as you love yourself.” Mark 12
“The truth will set you free.” John 8:31
