Our Values

St Patrick’s Silverstream was founded in 1931 by the Society of Mary and is a State Integrated Catholic Boys School set on 7 hectares of land in the beautiful Hutt Valley.

We pride ourselves on creating good Marist Men ready to take their place in the world. We support our students to live their values every day and seek always to be the best versions of the person God created them to be across all areas, spiritual, academic, cultural and sports.

​​​​​​​We warmly welcome our families to our school and look forward to getting to know you as we work together to support your son in their education.

Our values are as follows:

Whakapono / Faith / Fa’atuatua

Kotahitanga / Unity / Tutu Fa’atasi

Manaakitanga / Support / Lagolago

Hautoa / Courage / Loto tele

Ngākau pāpaku / Humility/ Loto maualalo
