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.

PARENT TEACHER MEETINGS
This week parent teacher interviews commenced. The research is very clear that student achievement is enhanced through parent engagement with the school. ‘Engagement’ is different to ‘involvement’. To be engaged in the school means to be in partnership with the school in all aspects, but particularly in the area of learning. These meetings provide an opportunity for you to know more about, and ultimately support, your child’s learning. Thanks to all teachers for providing this opportunity for our parents, and thank you to our parents for your ongoing support.
VANUATU BOOK COLLECTION
Last week you received a note outlining information about a book collection we are having for schools in Vanuatu. Thank you so much to families who have already been so generous and sent along some new books for the collection. These books will be collected early April after the school holidays. So if you still wish to donate – please send along your book to the Resource Centre.
Interschool Sport Gala Days concluded last Friday. There were some fantastic results from all teams that will be published next week once final results are in. Player of the day awards will be presented at assembly this Friday.
Congratulations to two students who represented St Peters at the Interschool Show Jumping qualifying event at Burpengary last weekend. Tamika (Prep Purple) competed in the 50cms primary category and had 3 clear rounds with 4 faults in her final jump off, placing her third in all 3 classes. Roan (3 White) competed in the 60cms primary category. He had 2 faults in his first round with the remaining 2 rounds clear to gain a second and two thirds. Excellent results, well done to you both.
STUDENT OF THE MONTH AWARDS
2015 YEARBOOK SPONSORSHIP
Our school has a unique way of recognising the learning, efforts and achievements of students in each class. For families new to the school, this prestigious award goes to a student from each class at the conclusion of each month. Teachers nominate a student and tell me about their outstanding contribution to class life. In most cases this is in recognition of their Iearning. I write to each student and advise them of their success. Certificates are awarded on the first Monday assembly after the notice is given. The students then participate in a morning tea served by the administration team where they receive an award winning student bumper sticker, student of the month wrist band, and party food. Of significant importance is the 50 points they earn for their house team. Student of the Month awards for March will be posted early in the holidays and our celebration will be held in the first week back.
If you would like to advertise or sponsor a page in the 2015 Yearbook – please complete the form sent home in the buckets or contact the front office.
