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.

CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
Catholic Education Week will
be celebrated across
Queensland from 27 July - 2
August this year. This annual
event is held to promote the
special ethos of Catholic
schools and to highlight the great things that
take place in Catholic schools every day. The
theme for this year's celebrations is: Come, live
life in all its fullness. This inspirational call is
based on the Gospel of John (10:10),
challenging those who answer it to "live fully".
Our school is planning a number of activities
during the week and we hope you are able to
join in the celebrations with us. Remember to
keep Friday night 1 August free for our annual
CEW concert and visual arts display. Click here for the concert program. Individual house groups will
let you know what's needed and times of arrival
HELPING THE ST VINCENT DE PAUL WINTER APPEAL
Year levels can take on the
challenge to bring along items which families in
need would appreciate this winter. Here is a
Prep - Warm articles of clothing such as
beanies, gloves, socks, scarves, jumpers -
these can be clean second hand clothing or
new if parents wish to purchase them.
Year One - Blankets, warm wraps, knee
rugs - These can be second hand or new.
Year Two - Packet biscuits - savoury or
Year Three - Cereals
Year Four - Pasta or Rice
Year Five - Long Life Drinks - Milk, juices
Year Six - Toiletries - soap, toothpaste,
toothbrushes (NEW), deodorant, shampoo,
Year Seven - Tinned Food
We will have the collection day Tuesday 29 July
when St Vinnie's will be available to collect so all
donations can come in and go out on the same
day. I know it's not environmentally friendly, but
we'll use shopping bags instead of boxes as
they are too heavy for kids to carry. We will also
have a representative from St Vincent de Paul at
our assembly on Friday 1 August.
Congratulations to our U/12 Rugby League team
who defeated Scarborough State School 18-6
(four tries to one) last Thursday to decide on the
Sunshine Coast South, Primary school
champions. Today they will play Coolum State
School at Apex Park 6.00pm to see who the
Sunshine Coast champion Primary School
League team is. If successful they will travel to
Brisbane to participate in the state
championships to play the other Queensland
regional winners from across the state.
Congratulations to Mr Fritz and Mr Graham on
the work they have put into this team. The boys
(and girl) are doing our school proud!

St Peter's is excited to announce the launch of a new web portal for our parent community.
Access will be restricted to parents of students at our school and a logon will be required. Notification of these details was sent home by email on Friday 20 June.
The Parent Portal will enable easier access to information about happenings in the school, forms that need to be returned, names and contact details for staff, policy information and much more.
We will be making increasing use of the Parent Portal to provide a range of information to parents in the future. Watch this space! If you have changed your email address recently please notify the office as soon as possible.
The P&F meetings give us all great feedback about school events and activities and help to plan for new events that build community. Thank you for your continued support. P&F meetings are the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm in the Staffroom.
