At St Ignatius Catholic School our curriculum is driven by our vision:
Learners will live and celebrate our Catholic faith, follow our values, and become actively engaged, connected lifelong learners.

Our curriculum is concept- based driven by big ideas. The goal for all our children is to become innovative learners with a solid base in literacy and numeracy.
Mā te kimi ka kite, Mā te kite ka mōhio, Mā te mōhio ka mārama.
Seek and discover. Discover and know. Know and become enlightened.
|Learning is a journey. It starts with a conscious effort to seek knowledge. Upon seeking, you will surely discover a brand new thing or see a familiar object in a totally new light. Eventually, the things you know will lead you to become wise beyond your years. Seek. Discover. Know. Be enlightened|
