St John the Evangelist School is a Roman Catholic Primary School for girls from year 1-8 and boys from year 1-6, offering and education with a special character. We draw our students primarily from the parishes of St John The Evangelist and St Peter Chanel (Otara, and Clover Park).

Our school community through the general school programme and in its religious instruction and observances, exercises the right to live and teach the values of Jesus Christ.

The Bishop of Auckland, Most Reverend Patrick Dunn is the proprietor of our school.

Our school firmly believes in the dignity of every person, made in the likeness and image of God. Through the teaching programme and resourcing of the school, the Board of Trustees ensures that our school’s mission, vision and charism are fulfilled every day so that every student at St John’s is able to “live to the fullest” having access to a quality Catholic education.

We do this by nurturing life-long learning which is central to the spiritual, emotional, social and academic success of students at St John’s. A successful learner will graduate St John’s with these capabilities and be able to build on these throughout their lives.

We commend our plans to your prayers, through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, St John the Evangelist and all the patron saints of our school.
