ABOUT OUR SCHOOL

OUR SCHOOL

We are a proud Catholic School in sunny Dunedin providing a well-rounded education from Years 1 to 6. St Peter Chanel School was founded over 60 years ago in response to the needs of the Green Island Parish.

St Peter Chanel School has an outstanding tradition of quality teaching from a passionate, innovative and caring teaching staff, providing a safe, fun and encouraging environment for our learners. Children receive an excellent learning experience, participate in a full curriculum and enjoy the many Special Character, cultural, sporting and EOTC opportunities.  The Gospel values of love, respect for others, compassion and forgiveness are integral in the daily life of the School. 

 

WHAKATAUKĪ | PROVERB

Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro nōnā te ngahere, ko te manu e kai ana i te mātauranga nōnā te ao.

 

Literally translated, the whakatauki says ‘the forest belongs to the bird who feasts on the miro berry, the world belongs to the bird who feasts on education.'
