St Paul's Collegiate School - Hamilton


Welcome 

Welcome to all our new and returning students and families. It was great to see the full school back yesterday. We trust the summer period has been an enjoyable and safe one for you all.

The first few weeks back at school is always a disjointed period, full of administrative requirements, programme changes and orientation type activities. So here are a few ways for students and parents to stay abreast of events and activities at school:

Please note, Waitangi Day - Wednesday 6 February - is a normal school day.


Current parents web page

We have a dedicated page on our school website especially for our current parents. It has loads of school information here so is a great go-to place for those questions you might have. Go and take a look here.


The School Shop

St Paul's School Shop has all uniform and stationery requirements for our students. To contact the School Shop, please phone 957 8841,  email shop@stpauls.school.nz or visit their online store.
