Principal's Welcome

I warmly welcome you to St Gerard's school in Alexandra, Central Otago.

St Gerard's is a state integrated school for girls and boys up to Year 8 offering an education with special Catholic Character. The special Catholic Character of our school follows the education philosophy of Catherine McAuley as gifted to us by the Sisters of Mercy.
As a school community we are committed to educating our students through our vision of Love (aroha ai), Learn (ako ai) and Grow (tipu ai).
Our greatest asset is our people - He waka eke noa - a canoe which we are all in together - no exception.

Hi team,

We seem to be whizzing through our spelling and handwriting books. Could everyone please grab one 'Warwick Learn To Write LWB 32 Leaf Dashed 7mm Ruled 14mm 255x205mm (JWB Equivalent)' from paper plus and bring it to school for term 3. I have attached a screenshot of it below. 


Thanks heaps!


School Invoices
5 Jul 2024

Winter sports have been invoiced on Hero - please note I have discounted skating costs for those who had passes and skates and also discounted any days your child was absent and did not skate. I have also credited accounts with their cheese roll earnings. Hourly rate was not as good as  previous years - increased costs and we had to pay GST on the income which is something we will look at for next year. Any queries please come and see me in the office. Have a happy holiday - keep warm and stay safe.
