Special Catholic Character Report

Christ the King is a Catholic school where the teaching and values of Jesus Christ guide us as we relate to and care for each other.

Our Josephite Charism is encapsulated in the sayings of Saint Mary MacKillop:

“Wherever we are, we are called to…

Create community,

Be a gift of compassion for one another,

See a need and respond to it,

Have an attitude of gratitude.”

And the values of:

Respect

Just as you did it to one of the least of these, you did it for me (Matt 25:40)

Love and Service

Let all that you do be done in love (Cor 16:14)

Justice

So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all (Galatians 6:10)

Peace and Joy

This is the day that the Lord has made; / let us rejoice and be glad in it (Psalm 118:24)

We come together as a community to celebrate:

  • The Feast of St Joseph (19 March)
  • The Feast of Sacred Heart of Jesus (First Friday in June)
  • The Feast of St Mary MacKillop (8 August)
  • The Feast of Christ the King (in November)

The NewZealand Curriculum requires schools to acknowledge and respect human rights. Being a Human Rights in Education school aligns with our Catholic Special Character and our School Charism. We are committed to developing a learning community that knows, promotes and lives human rights and responsibilities.
