Our Mission

At St Peter’s Girls’ School, we provide outstanding educational opportunities for students from Early Learning to Year 12 in an engaging, collaborative and dynamic environment. Since 1894, the School has built upon the legacy of our founding Sisters, who were brave pioneers of girls’ education. Their daring vision and faithful determination continues to resonate with students today. Guided by their example, our holistic education encourages students to challenge, serve and lead with integrity and imagination in a global society.

An exciting future

Strategic Plan

The St Peter’s Girls’ School Strategic Plan for 2017 – 2019 is entitled: A New Vision – Towards 125.

It offers a strategic framework that will guide the School’s operational initiatives for the next three years, culminating in the celebration of our 125th anniversary. The Strategic Plan details initiatives across seven integral elements of the School: Academics, Well-being, Staff, Co-Curricular, Spaces & Places, Community and Organisational Sustainability.

This holistic approach to forward planning will see Saints Girls cement its reputation as a national leader in girls’ education while honouring the legacy of our founding Sisters by producing graduates who go on to become inspiring women of character and influence.

Master Plan

In July 2015, the School’s new Master Plan, The Next Challenge: Building for Tomorrow, was launched. This plan outlined a series of projects to reinvigorate our key learning areas, providing fresh and modern spaces designed for the learners of tomorrow. Our learning environment is crucial to the success of our girls, who need modern spaces that are adaptable and flexible to suit their changing needs. Most of all, these new spaces must nurture their curiosity, inspire their creativity and engage their minds.

A comprehensive review of current facilities and key stakeholder consultation led to the new Master Plan. Already, the School has completed the successful expansion of the ELC as well as joining the AARNet (Australia’s Academic and Research Network) service. This new facility provides the highest standard ICT platform to support our teaching and learning practices. New fibre optic cabling has been installed to enable this vital infrastructure upgrade.

St Peter’s Girls has been working with the City of Burnside to maintain and develop Bell Yett Reserve, providing valuable resources for the School. The car park has been extended, providing an additional 49 off-street parking spaces to significantly ease congestion in the local area during peak times. To formalise an existing understanding, the School and Council have negotiated an agreement where the Bell Yett courts and grassed areas can be used for training and matches, with the School granted exclusive use of these facilities at key times throughout the week.

Our Middle School redevelopment is well and truly underway, with builders commencing in December 2016.

The Resource Centre, Science Laboratories and Gym are also areas of focus over the coming years, as our long-held vision for the School comes to life.
