Welcome to Sts Peter and Paul’s School! We are a co-educational primary school (Prep – Year 6) with a current enrolment of over 670 students.
Sts Peter and Paul’s School has a strong reputation in the wider community for our focus on both student well-being and student achievement. Inclusive education is more than just jargon at this school; rather it is the philosophy that underpins our approach to everyday life. The needs of each student are the starting point of all planning, pedagogy and professional development of staff. While the core business of our school is learning and teaching, we appreciate that this happens best when the child’s well-being is given priority and to this end, we work closely with families and in partnership with community organisations.
These are exciting times to be in education yet never has the educational agenda been so complex! As the family has much to compete with in forming the values of children, the Catholic school needs to be ever attentive to these same competing demands of today’s society. Additionally, the Australian Curriculum, the call for transparency in student standards and the introduction of national professional standards for teachers and principals set the current context for schooling, however, it is within this framework that Sts Peter and Paul’s School is firmly placed. The distinctive mark of our school is an emphasis on the person of Jesus and his values based on the Good Samaritan story. In a society where possessions and productivity are held in the highest regard, to lead children to learn of their intrinsic spiritual nature within a Catholic Christian faith remains central.
Sts Peter and Paul’s School prides itself on the spirit that can be found in our community and the opportunities we offer our students.
