St Patrick's Napier

Jurek Wypych




General Information

My name is Jurek Wypych and I have been Principal at St Patrick's since 2001. I moved to Napier from St Patrick's in Masterton. I have two kids who both attend University.
Our school is a wonderful and diverse place to be. I am proud of our pupils, the way they behave, care about and relate to each other and their teachers. I particularly enjoy being out in the playground and joining in games (especially if I am good at them!) Whenever I can, I go into classrooms for prayers, to read and to enjoy the work our pupils do. If I can get out of school on class trips or camps....I will! I really enjoy working with our staff, they are caring, dedicated and know how to laugh.
We have great support from our families, PTA and Board of Trustees.
It is a great privilege to be Principal of this school and help our pupils learn, grow to reach their potential and become confident all in the context and atmosphere of the teachings and example of Jesus.
