St Brendan’s School is an integrated Roman Catholic School situated in Heretaunga, Upper Hutt. The school is a full primary for children from new entrants to year eight. The name St Brendan’s was chosen by the founders to reflect the missionary character of the Missionary Sisters of the Society of Mary (S.M.S.M Sisters) who originally staffed the school.
