Mo te aroha ki te Atua, kia Oranga, Kia Akona.
For the love of God, Life and Learning.

Cullinane College Whanganui is a distinctly Catholic Year 9 to 13 high school. Here we strive to send young minds into the world with more than just an excellent academic grounding. We aim to have our graduating students’ conscious of their responsibilities and obligations towards themselves and others in the community.

At Cullinane College, we believe that we offer an excellent values-based education that sets us apart from other schools. We actively encourage our students to test their limits, take on challenges, and make the most of their time at high school. Students at Cullinane College are expected to work diligently in an environment commanding a high standard of behaviour both in and outside the classroom.

Cullinane College builds upon a long and proud tradition of Catholic secondary schooling in our region. Established as a co-educational high school in 2003 through the amalgamation of Sacred Heart College and St Augustine’s. Cullinane College is a school with a proven record of academic success in NCEA. We take pride that our students are well prepared for tertiary study, trade apprenticeships or employment.

Our curriculum diversity is very good with most New Zealand school subjects taught.

God bless,
Justin Harper Principal

“The College challenges all of our students to accept the individual differences in each other, to care for those in its community and to celebrate each others successes and achievements. The expectation of our students is that each and everyone of them will pursue life with vigour, optimism and a “can do” attitude so that they can become the best person they can be in the eyes of God.

Our mantra is “For the love of God, Life and Learning” and this is our guiding principle. The years at Cullinane College prepare our young men and women for life and learning beyond school.”
