Make Your Mark Everyday

Be inspired by the firsthand experiences shared by our parents and whānau.


Helen Brown – Parent

“It has always felt to us that St Mark’s has been a faithful ally in Reuben’s developmental and academic journey. Individual teachers have been excellent and of the highest quality. We have been fortunate each year to have dealt with professional, engaged, personable educators who have bent over backwards for Reuben and have continued as essential people in his life and ours. They have all seen Reuben through the special glow we see in him and have conducted very warm relationships with him and us. We feel he is genuinely valued and can shine in all the ways he does.”

Being a part of the St Mark’s community through my son attending Preschool was the best start to his formal learning I could have wanted. As a parent, when you leave your precious cargo in someone else’s hands, you can only hope they are in a nurturing and caring environment that will build their confidence and excitement about learning while having fun. The environment Charmaine and her fantastic team have created is just that! Engaging, fun activities that cater for each child’s individual needs and teachers who get as much joy out of the learning experience as the children. My son has headed off to Year 1 in the Primary School with the confidence and skills to assist him in taking that next step in his learning journey – I couldn’t be happier.

Libby Carson – Parent

“Moving a child to a new school is always challenging, and the decision to move our son to a new school for his intermediate years was not taken lightly. From the moment we met with the Principal, we knew we were making the best choice for our child and, more importantly, our son was excited to come into the St Mark’s family. Our son has gone from strength to strength, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Quite simply, he is shining. To see his smiling face every day when he walks out of school, knowing that he is happy, safe and enjoying his learning, is more than we could have ever asked for.”
