St Peter’s College exists as a commitment of the local Catholic Community to preserve Christian values in their children. These values are centred on the Gospel. They imply a belief in Jesus, hope for the future, care and concern for each other, the uniqueness and giftedness of the individual, development of talent and preparedness for leadership in the wider community.
The ‘rock’ of our College operation is the pursuit of ‘right relationships’. These relationships underpin our pastoral care philosophy and the connections we have within the community. These relationships are obvious not only in daily interactions between all immediate College community members, but in the partnerships we have with parents, past pupils, staff and friends of the College. The PTFA and the College Foundation provide a way that community members can be involved and support the work and mission of the College.
The unique special character of the College is also evident in the Catholic traditions and relationships but also in the activities and actions that are part of schooling at St Peter’s. The opportunities that exist are designed to enable young people to be the best that God created them to be. These include events and programmes to develop their spirituality through retreats, prayer, liturgy, religious education, leadership training and social justice activities.
The partnerships we seek and model are evident in the safe and caring environment where all are valued and individual differences are seen as a strength. The commitment to a bi-cultural heritage is seen in our curriculum and co-curricular activities. We encourage a holistic approach to life where we pray, play and study together.
