Principal's Welcome

Haere Mai and welcome to Our Lady Star of the Sea Primary School, set in the beautiful seaside village of Sumner.  

Our Mission Statement calls for us to provide broad and equitable opportunities for learning, focused on Catholic values and community. We strive to develop the whole child and prepare them to live out their lives with empathy and care for others.

At Our Lady Star of the Sea, staff and students show respect for each other and this provides a nurturing environment for learning. In the classroom, we will encourage your child to do their best, enjoy learning and to set challenging goals. Our programmes cater for individual students and support special learning needs and abilities. With small class sizes, your child will receive individual attention in an intimate setting, something many other schools are no longer able to provide with the introduction of the modern learning environment.
Our special character extends to our strong parent community. We maintain special relationships with current and past parents and your family will be welcomed when you become part of our school whānau.

We welcome visitors at anytime, no need for an appointment. Drop in and discover the difference.
Nga mihi
Mark Gregory
Acting Principal
