Setting

Our Lady Star of the Sea is located in the beach-side suburb of Sumner in Christchurch City. Sumner is a unique community surrounded by the port hills and facing North over the beautiful beaches. Our Lady Star of the Sea School is only a few blocks back from the seaside on a medium sized plot of land that catches all day sun.
The school has several classroom and support blocks with three/four active classrooms, an art room, learning support room, two music rooms, a library, hall and several office spaces. The grounds feature a playground, sandpit, a tennis court and a grassed area with netted football goals and rugby posts.
During the summer months we have access to the Sumner Community Pool located only a short 5 minute walk away at the edge of the Sumner Primary School grounds. Each class has its own garden and the other gardens around the school are planted with a variety of native and exotic plants and trees.
Our Lady Star of the Sea is located across grassed area from Our Lady Star of the Sea Church and the school uses the church regularly for school prayer, school Mass and other significant Catholic celebrations.
