Tō Tātou Whakapono Our Faith

The Religious Education Curriculum for Catholic Schools in Aotearoa New Zealand – Tō Tātou Whakapono Our Faith is built around each of us and our rangatahi being on a hīkoi wairua spiritual journey. Part of that is understanding our past, our whakapapa as individuals, as schools, as parishes and as a wider church community.

Some resources have been developed to help support Ā Tātou Whakapapa Our Story

School Histories

These online stories about the religious orders who taught in the Diocese can help build a picture of the story of your school.

Parish Histories

To encourage a sense of belonging and connection for students to the parish, it is useful to understand how parishes have evolved and grown in the Diocese of Christchurch.  These histories are works in progress so check back if your parish is not completed.
