Our staff shared a ‘Founder’s Day’ breakfast with five women from the Catholic Women’s League who spoke to us about the planning, fundraising and establishment of St Peter’s College. It is important for us to remember the huge commitment by the Catholic families of the wider Gore Parish to raise the money to buy the land and build our school during the 1960s. To Margaret Wilson, Noeline Nicholson, Elaine Kelly, Joan Duncan and Anne Welsh – thank you for sharing your memories with us and, along with so many others, for establishing and contributing to our school during the last fifty years. We understand the importance of capturing these stories and memories and the Foundation page of our school website now has many of these stories recorded. Please take the time to read these as we head towards the 50th Anniversary of the College in 2019.
