We are a Catholic state integrated school for boys from Year 0-6 and girls from Year 0-8.
Established in 1848, the school is one of the three oldest Catholic primary schools in the Auckland diocese.
When a child enrols at St Joseph’s Catholic School their family joins a school with a very long and proud Mercy tradition.
Our aim is to guide and nurture each child to reach their full potential in all areas of school life, striving for excellence in all that we do.
We form very close links with our families and wider school community, valuing and encouraging parent involvement in all aspects of their child’s schooling and faith development.



The mercy value of respect is about recognising the gifts and talents of the people around you. It is also about being responsible for our own actions and our own choices
