Message from Bishop Patrick Dunn, Bishop of Auckland
The Catholic Schools Office (CSO) supports the work of school principals and staff, parents and parish priests in providing quality Catholic education to students from Early Childhood to Year 13 living in the Diocese of Auckland.This web site provides information on the primary and secondary Catholic schools in our Diocese, and the services of the Catholic Schools Office. You will find relevant and updated information on the Catholic Schools Office, the Education Services provided by CSO, Property and Finance issues, News and Events including ‘Nga Korero O Te Wa’, our newsletter, Frequently Asked Questions and Resources. I invite you to use the site as an interactive resource and as a communication tool between CSO and the wider education community.
Our Catholic schools distinguish themselves when our students develop a Christ-centred faith relationship, when pastoral care reflects the sacredness of each individual, when individuals are encouraged to know, love and respect themselves as children of God and when a culture of excellence is fastened in the heart of the Gospel.
With Catholic education at the very heart of the Church’s mission, we strive to continue to work with parents and teachers in forming men and women who will take their place as leaders in the Church and society of Aotearoa-New Zealand.
Bishop of Auckland
