Welcome to St Joseph’s Orakei
We are a small suburban Catholic school in a rural setting serving Orakei and surrounding area.
As a Catholic school our Special Character is at the heart of all that we do and student nurturing and a sense of community are the priorities in the early years of our students. Our children feel comfortable at school and enjoy learning, growing into opportunities of leadership as they mature and develop.
Our grounds provide children a pastoral setting for learning and contemplating their Catholic faith. Being a small school there is a strong sense of belonging, everyone knows and cares about each other. The children are happy and feel valued. From a young age they have a variety of responsibilities and an expectation of participation. Our Teaching staff take pride in their profession and enjoy enriching the education and development of all our students.
