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.

Here we are at the end of another busy term.
We have celebrated, fund raised, worked hard and had lots of fun. We had great success with the Catholic Education Week celebrations through the Visual Art display and our Performing Arts evening, we enjoyed a wonderful day at Brennan Park after our walk-a-thon, students have enjoyed camps and excursions and the Senior disco provided lots of fun for students. Some of our students have attended writing workshops, visited St Columban’s for a taste of secondary school in preparation for next year and the pool has been well utilised. We have fitted all this in between reading, writing, problem solving and computations. Teachers and students have taken advantage of our ICLT teacher, Brad May and have learned great new skills to utilise ICLTs in learning.
For the last seven weeks Mr Adam Fritz has been acting in the role of Assistant Principal and I would like to thank him for a job very well done. Adam has demonstrated great leadership qualities and I know one day he will make an amazing principal – thank you Adam!
This week our year fives head off to camp at Cooroora and we wish them an exciting and adventurous time as they learn skills of co-operation, team building and resiliency.
Next term we welcome back Mr Midgley, I am sure he will have stories from all the schools he has visited and the wonderful things he has seen as he has travelled around the Archdiocese. Have a fabulous and safe holiday. See you all on Tuesday 7 October when Term 4 commences.
FROM THE APRE
We in Australia have a wonderful sense of holidays and are blessed with the opportunity to take leave every year. Most of us love holidays and look forward to them with great anticipation. Holidays present us with opportunities to do new things, meet new people and perhaps explore new destinations. Even if we can’t get away, holidays give us the chance to spend time with family and friends or simply to slow down and appreciate life in a different way.
I wish each of you, a blessed and restful holiday, regardless of whether you have amazing plans or whether your plans are to just stop the merry-go-round of life and take time to be at rest. I hope that these holidays bring you a new awareness of the good things of life; that you become more aware of your uniqueness and giftedness; that you become revitalised to be better able to fulfil your true goals in life and that at the end of this break, you will have a renewed cheerfulness to life and each daily task.
What’s happening this week? Tomorrow, our Prep classes will be celebrating their end of term liturgy in the church at 2:15p.m. Then on Friday it is Prep Gold leading us in prayer at our Friday Prayer Assembly. Please join us for these moments of prayer and reflection.
Have a wonderful last week of term and a safe and restful holiday.
WORLD TEACHERS DAY STUDENT CHALLENGE
Your children may be interested in the World Teacher’s Day student challenge – what a great way to show appreciation for the wonderful teachers our children have. The World Teachers' Day student challenge is open for any Queensland school student or group of students from Prep to Year 12 to create a digital product that expresses the theme: a teacher's commitment to their students' learning is inspirational. The challenge closes on Friday 10 October with finalists announced in late October. Further information is available on the World Teachers' Day website.
