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.

The P&F welcome bush dance was a wonderful introduction to the 2015 school year for our extended community. As this was my first experience of the extended St Peter’s community ‘in action’, I must say I was very impressed. The evening was a great success due to the dedication and commitment of the loyal band of parent helpers. For a number of these helpers, the preparation started before school and finished after clean up at 9:45pm. It is an obvious statement to make then, that ‘these events don’t just happen’. There is a magnitude of work that happens in the background. Whilst naming individuals can be dangerous, I wish to acknowledge Mrs Prue Aranovitch. The Bush Dance was Prue’s final formal commitment to our school as she is no longer a parent of St Peter’s.
Tonight at the P&F AGM Prue will step down from her role as P&F President. As mentioned last week she is also handing over the reins of Spring Fair Convenor. We again acknowledge Mr Damon Johnson for taking over this role. Whilst we acknowledge that these are very large shoes to fill, my experience of the St Peter’s community fills me with confidence that others will ‘step up’. Please come along to the P&F AGM at 6:00pm in the staff room to show your support for our school. It is your children who benefit most from parents supporting the school in this way. I would particularly encourage new families and parents of students in our early years to get involved. Your children will benefit the most from your contribution in the years they have ahead of them at this great school.
PREP 2016 ENROLMENTS
The process for enrolling students into our prep classes for 2016 has begun and interviews will commence in late March. In general this involves children born between 01/07/2010 and 30/06/2011. Enrolment applications (available from the office or online) for this cohort should be submitted ASAP if they haven’t been received already.
Unfortunately our planned Interschool Sport Gala Day was cancelled last week due to the condition of some of the playing surfaces from the recent rain. District coordinators are currently working towards some alternative dates and our next Gala day on 20 March. District sports trials continue to take place this week. Dates and times for all events can be found at https://cabdistrictsport.eq.edu.au/
The selection dates for the following sports are listed below.
10, 11 and 12 Years Boys Soccer - 4 March
12 Years AFL - 5 March
12 Years Boys Rugby League - Monday 2 and Tuesday 3 March
12 Years Girls Netball - Wednesday 4 March

This year our new PTO (Parent Teacher Online) Booking System will be open to parents between Monday 9 March 2015 and 22 March 2015. Interviews start from 23 March 2015. This Friday all parents who have provided us with an email address will be sent their log in details. At this stage it is not too late to send in your email address so you can access this system.
2ND WEEK OF LENT: PROJECT COMPASSION: MARIAMA FROM NIGER
This week Project Compassion focuses on Niger, where life is very tough. Many live in extreme poverty, often unable to afford or access food and water.
This week we meet Mariama who is raising her daughter in Niger, a country that suffers widespread poverty. When her little girl became malnourished, she received life-saving food and care at a Nutrition Centre, supported by Caritas Australia.
Your donation to Project Compassion 2015 helps save the lives of people living on the brink of survival in Niger, giving them access to nutritional support and essential food for life. www.caritas.org.au/projectcompassion
