Welcome to St Francis de Sales School

I am thrilled to be in the position of Principal at St Francis de Sales School. I feel very much at home here, I grew up in Island Bay, am an ex student of the school, and I am now raising my family here and absolutely love this community.. I am passionate about our place: I love the Bay, the people and working within our community - but most of all our students at SFDS.

At SFDS we have students from a range of ethnic backgrounds which adds a special cultural diversity to our school. Our goal is to provide a holistic education to meet the spiritual, learning, physical, social and emotional needs of all students. We have a strong emphasis on achievement in learning, particularly in English (Writing and Reading), Mathematics and Inquiry. Within this goal we ensure that all students have the opportunity to take part in arts and sports based programmes; areas in which the school has achieved success in wider community activities. Part of our school philosophy is inclusive education which means that all students take part in all school activities to the best of their skills and abilities.

Pop in for a visit - we would love to meet you.

Tracy Gundesen
Principal


The process for determining preference and non-preference enrolments

As per the 2020 Education & Training Act, only 5% of our student roll can be non-preference where space allows. The remaining 95% must be preference or Catholic students. There is sometimes a waiting list for non-preference places at Saint Francis de Sales School. Please refer to the second page of the Criteria of Preference to check if your child would be applying for a Preference or Non-Preference place.
