Year 7 to 13 Catholic Boys School, Auckland New Zealand

Principal's Statement

  • CS Rooney Principal of Liston College

Welcome to Liston College. We are a Catholic boys' school committed to providing learning opportunities which enable students to fulfill their potential. This incorporates all aspects - academic, cultural spiritual and sporting. When the school was established in 1974 by the Christian Brothers, the founding principles of Edmund Rice, which challenges staff and students to "act justly, to love tenderly and to walk humbly with their God", were at the heart of the school.

Liston College has a proud reputation for academic excellence and sporting achievement. A committed staff, a supportive Board of Trustees and an energetic PTFA are responsible for the success. The values of honesty, justice and respect for others and ourselves underpin the special character of the school.

Students are challenged to pursue excellence in a family-like environment. The welfare of the student is of the highest priority. An extensive pastoral care system ensures that the student is treated as an important individual. Liston College offers the opportunity for students to excel in academic, sporting and cultural activities. The extensive co-curricular programme supports this.
