Parents are a vibrant and important part of the St Peter’s Girls’ community. Many opportunities are available to become involved with the School, connect with other community members and build strong and lasting friendships.

Parents’ and Friends’ Association

The Association was formed in 1939 by volunteers to foster relationships between current families and preserve the greater School community links.

The Parents’ and Friends’ Association activities assist with the development of the School’s facilities and resources for the girls. The P&F is renowned for well organised, valuable fundraising and enjoyable social events for the whole School community.

The Association meets as required during term time, in the Chiverton Boardroom. It consists of an Executive; President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer, and there is an open invitation to any willing parents to become active committee members.

Mothers’ Club

The Mothers’ Club has been meeting and supporting the School community since 1964. The key focus of this group is to work with the School to raise funds to support activities with which the girls are involved.

The Mothers’ Club meet once a month on a Wednesday, for an informal meeting to catch-up on what has been happening within the School community and plan for upcoming events. The group is always looking for new and exciting ways in which to raise funds for the School. Being involved in Mothers’ Club is not a lifetime commitment. An hour or so every now and again when we need to marshall the troops to serve tea and coffee, or put together a fundraising idea is all we ask.

Activities include:

  • Helping student groups with financial support to attend events;
  • Working with the School and other community groups with major events;
  • Hosting and providing support for special events such as the New Parents’ Morning Tea, our traditional Mothers’ Day Lunch and the Leaders’ Induction Morning tea.

Due to a number of successful fundraising events over the past few years, the Mothers’ Club was able to present the School with a cheque for $10,000 towards staging in the new Arts Centre. Other purchases and contributions we have made to the School include: cafe blinds and outdoor heating for the ELC, equipment for the Food Technology Centre, air conditioning, Hymn Books, sponsorship of girls for various projects and Building Fund donations.

Year Level Representatives

Year Level Representatives are the focal point for organising informal year level social functions to help foster contact between parents. Gatherings include lunches, dinners, morning and afternoon teas and picnics. Year Level Representatives also support School community groups by encouraging their Year Level group to attend fundraising and/or social functions and communicating relevant information. There is generally one Year Level Representative per home group.

The Friends of the Arts

The Friends of the Arts are committed to helping provide the support and facilities needed to foster a wonderful experience in the Arts for the whole of the School Community. The FOA undertake a number of fundraising activities each year to support the provision of resources to the Arts Department.

Saints Sport Group

To further the success of our Sport department, a group of voluntary parents host a variety of events for the sports faculty and assist in fundraising. They meet as required and support School Sport carnivals.

Friends of Rowing

Friends of Rowing is the parent support group that assists with the fundraising and operation of the rowing program at St Peter’s Girls.

Some of the ways in which Friends of Rowing aim to assist the development of the program include fundraising, assisting with camps, supporting crews at regattas, helping with transport and erection of the marquee, organising social functions and liaising with the School via the Director of Rowing.

Friends of ELC

The Friends of ELC is a volunteer group of parents who work with the ELC Director to organise special events for our ELC community, facilitate children’s learning where possible and fundraise on a needs basis. Meetings are held fortnightly on a day that suits after drop off and usually last for 45 minutes.

Parents play an integral role in decision-making and facilitating the Early Years Program. The community emphasis is critical to the development of relationships at the Early Learners’ Centre.

Our Saints

Become one of Our Saints. 

It is said that it takes a village to raise a child. Beyond parents or guardians are a host of people who are deeply connected to our girls. Saints Girls is encouraging these very loved ones to join our newly created community group, Our Saints. Our aim is to bring together all the people who are special to our girls and want to participate in and know more about their education at St Peter’s Girls’ School. These special people could include grandparents, aunts and uncles, Godparents, Old Scholars or friends of the family – anyone who takes an interest in the life and education of a Saints girl. Beginning in 2017, we will invite this exclusive group to enjoy annual events that will provide fresh new opportunities to socialise with like-minded individuals.

We’d like to invite grandparents, aunts and uncles, Godparents, Old Scholars or friends of the family – anyone who has a student attending St Peter’s Girls’ School to join as an ‘Our Saint’s’ member to receive the following benefits:

  • Receive each edition of Saints Alive
  • An invite to our ‘Our Saints’ Annual Morning Tea
  • An invite to our annual Foundation Long Lunch – Sunday September 24 2017
  • Invites to other special functions throughout the year

Our Saints members will also have opportunities to make classroom visits at designated times throughout the year (ELC, Junior School and Middle School) to see their girls in action. The program of events for ‘Our Saints’ in 2017 is continually being updated, we look forward to providing details to you as new opportunities arise. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming an ‘Our Saints’ member please fill out the form below.

Alternatively you can email or call our reception desk and ask them to add your special friend’s details to our database. We will need their full name, email and postal address and the name of the Saints Girl(s) you/they know and how you are connected:
