School Property Information

We recognise and appreciate the demands of running a School and wish to offer support and guideance to Principals and their Boards of Trustees in administering Catholic Schools in the Auckland Diocese.

Working alongside your local Parishes the Diocesan Property Group are committed to:

  • Empowering you to effectively manage your property.
  • Supporting the systems that you need to do this.

We have produced Property Maintenance Guidelines that contain useful information, guidelines, and best practice ideas to help you manage your School assets.

We have endeavoured to make these guidance notes thorough and informative. Please use them as a guide to maintaining your School and as a reference guide to address property issues you may have.
