Student Leaders

At St Patrick’s School we encourage senior students who show excellent skills in particular areas to be leaders, chosen by both teachers and their peers. Leaders include; House Captains, Strength & Kindness Group, Enviro Group, Liturgy Leaders, Kapa Haka Leaders, Choir Leaders, Library Monitors, Office Monitors & School Patrollers.

Senior students are responsible for the Fuss Busters programme to help resolve minor conflicts in the playground and they also act as wet weather monitors in the junior classes.

Each year we choose two senior students as our school leaders who are called Pae Arahi. These are our student spiritual leaders who we believe best uphold our school motto of Strength and Kindness and are role models for our children to look up to.

The school has four house groups; Tane Mahuta, Papatuanuku, Tangaroa and Ranginui.  Children are divided into the four groups and receive house points for a variety of things, from completing homework to winning races.  Rewards are given for the winning house group each term.
