Mission Statement:
“We are a Catholic faith community
committed to quality learning.”

Welcome to St Francis - Thames

We are a Catholic faith community committed to quality learning.

About our school
St Francis School is a state integrated school, which means that the buildings are owned by the
Roman Catholic Bishop of Auckland while the school operating costs are met  via the Ministry of
Educations state operating grant.  Currently we have a roll of 60 students. See more.








We are a Green Gold Enviro School and working towards our Gold. We operate a whole school team green approach to sustainability. We grow trees from saplings, operate a worm farm and composting. We look after our school environement and plant trees in our local community. We grow veggies and fruit for our local community. Together we make a difference and live the faith of St Francis.
