St Joseph's Catholic School Dargaville is the only Catholic school between Auckland (Silverdale) and Whangarei.

There is a very good daily school bus service that delivers our students to school and back home within the wider community known as Kaipara. 


If you are a Catholic family, considering becoming Catholic, or are interested in finding out about education in a Catholic school, please do not hesitate to contact us as we are happy to talk and show you around.
