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.

This week is Catholic Education Week. During this week we reflect on and celebrate that which is special to our community of schools. Our Executive Director Pam Betts wrote in her message to staff this week:
During our Queensland Catholic Education Week celebrations, there is a valuable message of ‘community’ that is relevant for the disturbing ripples of cultural and interreligious isolationism that seem to be surfacing unexpectedly in our nation. The state’s 296 Catholic schools with their nearly 143,000 students are a real example of how a sense of community belongs to our very being.
The 2015 theme of Engaging Minds, Igniting Hearts, Serving Others focuses us on the unifying vision of our mission of Catholic education for the young people of Queensland. This Christian community identity is a strong reminder that any tendency to segregation or isolationism can never succeed.
The recurrent theme is that Catholic schools build community. Catholic Education week is unique at St Peter’s. This week we have two major celebrations: our Visual Arts Night on Tuesday and our Performing Arts Evening on Friday. What better way to recognise the BCE theme of ‘Head, Heart and Hands’, than by showcasing the results of our students’ creativity. The creations of their head, heart and hands.
Please come along and help us continue to build and celebrate our wonderful community.
Details of each of these events have been sent home previously and are outlined elsewhere in this week's newsletter.
In exciting news, we learnt last week that previous principal Mr Jim Midgley was one of only eight recipients of the Catholic Education Week, ‘Spirit of Education’ Award. Jim was recognised for being an ‘Innovative and Ground Breaking Leader of Change and Improvement’. Congratulations Mr Midgley!
CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK - ARTS NIGHTS
Catholic Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the many wonderful aspects of being part of a Catholic school. Here at St Peter’s we recognise the significance of the week through celebrations of The Arts. Tonight we are holding our Visual Arts Evening where we will appreciate the artistic talents displayed by students.
A reminder to those attending this evening that wine, cheese and light snacks are provided, however you may wish to consider the regular eating routines of your children as the snacks and refreshments on offer do not constitute a dinner. You may wish to have your dinner before arrival or after the completion of events at approximately 7:15.
