Welcome to

REIGNIER CATHOLIC SCHOOL

We are a Catholic School situated on Guppy Road in Taradale, catering for children from Years 0 – 6. Working alongside our Catholic Parish of Napier we are able to provide a Catholic culture for our children and a Christian framework for life and education.

We enjoy a supportive, nurturing atmosphere and a strong sense of community which in turn allows children to feel happy and at ease in developing new relationships. The diversity we enjoy in our school along with our committed and well-qualified teachers will provide enriching experiences for your children.

Reignier Catholic School has a proud tradition of faithfulness to God and one another, and excellence in education be it academic, sporting or cultural. We are pleased to share that tradition and have confidence that your child will benefit greatly from their Reignier School experience.
