Welcome to St Thomas of Canterbury College

Whakahirahira te kaupapa nei o o tatou kura 

Nga mihi nui ki a koutou katoa

Talofa lava, i matua, malo le soifua. Afio mai.

I extend a very warm welcome to our College. At St Thomas’ we believe that the best preparation for life is an education that fosters excellence in a caring, diverse environment. Our staff is committed to guiding our students through a broad range of spiritual, learning, cultural, sporting and service opportunities in order to develop young men with “educated hearts and educated minds”. We are a state-integrated Catholic school for a maximum of 615 students from Years 7 to 13. Our size enables us to provide individual attention and develop close relationships with our students in order for them to develop a healthy self-image, relaxed but confident personal skills and a positive outlook on life.

We are a boys’ school and as such maintain a clear focus on boys’ needs and the pathway from boyhood to manhood. We will provide your son with adventure, testing of courage and strong, good male role models. We want the young men who graduate from our College to be men of justice and compassion who believe they have much to offer the world in order for it to be a better place.

You as a family are central to the partnership as your son walks this journey.  When you enrol you and your son become part of the St Thomas’ family which extends well beyond school.

With best wishes,

Steve Hart, Principal.
