Greetings and a warm welcome to Marian Catholic School, Hamilton.
Marian Catholic School is a thriving school in the heart of Hamilton East. We are a full primary catering for 600 students from Year 1 through to Year 8.
Our school was established in 1989 following the amalgamation of St Mary’s Cathedral School and Marist School which had previously coexisted on adjoining sites. Marian Catholic School recognizes and celebrates the founding charisms of the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions foundress, Euphrasie Barbier and the Marist Brothers founder, Marcellin Champagnet. Participation in the mass and sacraments, having a sound knowledge of prayer and the fundamentals of the Catholic faith, surrounded by a supportive faith community, will lead our students to demonstrate the following understandings:
- Being Christ- Like in their actions
- That as a follower of God – You are never alone
- That it takes courage to be themselves within their faith
- That it's "cool to be Catholic"
- Knowing right from wrong
- How to live by the Fruits of the Holy Spirit
- These understandings will lead them to be the hands, face and voice of Christ and truly "bring Christ into the World"
The school provides a safe and supportive environment for all students. We are a wonderfully diverse school made up of many different cultures. We actively seek to connect with our parents to build positive partnerships.
Learning is our core business and we are committed to offering future focused learning opportunities that utilise a range of technologies and teaching approaches to develop confident, connected, life-long learners. We believe each child is a capable learner and we support them to take an active role in navigating their learning journey. Our motto: Bring Christ into the World and our vision for learning: Empowered to learn, inspired for life, permeates through all aspects our daily learning. Our children are supported by dynamic teachers and a dedicated team of support staff. The teaching staff have a range of expertise, interests and experience. They work collaboratively sharing professional skills and knowledge to help the children achieve.
We warmly invite you to visit our school, or call for further information.
