Welcome to the Saint Peter’s Catholic Primary School website. The site is updated weekly with current news items and reflections. The drop down menus at the top of this page contain important detail outlining information on enrolment, curriculum, homework, uniforms and other important aspects of school life. The “Big Picture” articles are commentary on issues currently affecting the education system or future direction of our school.
We hope you enjoy what this site has to offer. Please don’t hesitate to contact the school with any suggestions or feedback.

So here we are! This week is crunch time in terms of supporting the incredible efforts of our community in preparation for the Spring Fair on Sunday 30th August. Now that the months of organisation from the dedicated team who have coordinated this event are coming to the ‘business end’, it is now up to the rest of us to look at ways we can assist in making this a successful community event. In previous years the Spring Fair has injected over $75,000 (per event) in vital funds that are used to provide the best educational environment possible for our students. We need your help to ensure that this Sunday’s Spring Fair is as successful as possible. Please support the organising committee who have generously donated hundreds of hours to provide this experience and the subsequent funding for our students.
If you have not yet volunteered and are able to assist on Sunday, please contact our Spring Fair Coordinator Damon Johnstone on 0412 737 178 or provide your details to the P&F volunteers manning the tables in the undercover area.
Let’s work together to make this the best Spring Fair ever!
NATIONAL LITERACY AND NUMERACY WEEK
National Literacy and Numeracy Week is from Monday 31st August to Sunday 6th September. Literacy and numeracy are the foundations of learning and we put major focus on these areas at St Peter’s so it is wonderful to celebrate learning in these areas with a special week dedicated to supporting literacy and numeracy across Australia. This special week is for everyone, children, parents and teachers.
You can find out how you can be involved by visiting the official literacy and numeracy site at www.literacyandnumeracy.gov.au.
This is a very informative site that will give you plenty of suggestions for ideas that will support your child’s learning. You have an enormous impact on your child’s education. As their first teachers you have an understanding even before they come to school about the type of learner they are. Research has shown that your engagement in your child’s learning has an influence on their achievement. Creating a home environment that encourages a love of learning from an early age can help your child to do better at school. Top Literacy and Numeracy Tips for Parents are provided on the literacy and numeracy site above. Please take the time to have a look, this is a great opportunity to support your child.
WOOLWORTHS EARN AND LEARN PROGRAM
Thanks to all the families that have been sending along their loose stickers or completed sticker sheets. The promotion continues until 8th September. You are able to print sticker sheets from woolworthsonline.com.au and follow the links to Earn and Learn and print sticker sheets. I am quite happy to just accept strips of stickers and we can put them on sheets.
A collection box will be available in the undercover area at school or in the Resource Centre if you wish to drop off your sticker tokens or completed sheets. At the completion of the promotion, St Peter’s school will be able to use the points earned to redeem resources and equipment. Thanking you in advance!
