St Peter’s College  was established as the first co-educational day and boarding school in Australasia in 1969 for students from Year 7-13. It was originally staffed by the Rosminian Order (Institute of Charity) and the Sisters of Mercy.  The school is based on Christian Values and the Catholic tradition which enables young people to fulfil their potential

A detailed history of St Peter's College was compiled by past pupil Donna Richardson and Father Aidan Cunningham in 1999. This excellent history of St Peter's can be download from this link.

For further information about past staff, especially those from St Peter's founding orders please go to the Foundation section of this website.
