As St Peter’s Girls marks 125 years of excellence in education, we reflect on the past to celebrate our achievements and look to the future to build on our success.
Our School is renowned for first-class teachers, resources and facilities nestled on a rare site encased by the natural beauty of Ferguson Conservation Park. Our students can ponder a maths problem under the relaxed gaze of a koala or read a book amidst the tranquil chirps of parrots and other stunning birdlife. At Saints Girls, it is one of our aims to preserve and enhance our ability to enjoy our unique surrounds while ensuring our classrooms, buildings and grounds provide the best learning environment for our students.
Following a comprehensive review of facilities, the School’s Master Plan, The Next Challenge: Building for Tomorrow, was launched in July 2015. It features a series of projects to reinvigorate our key learning areas, delivering fresh, modern and adaptable spaces that nurture curiosity, inspire creativity and engage the learners of tomorrow.
Already, the School has achieved many milestones, including the recent opening of our new Middle School and Library. The next chapter is just as exciting, showing why there has never been a better time to be at Saints Girls.
In the lead up to our 125th anniversary, St Peter’s Girls established a firm strategic framework to guide the School.
Our Strategic Plan for 2017 – 2019 launched initiatives across seven integral areas: Academics, Wellbeing, Staff, Co-Curricular, Spaces and Places, Community and Organisational Sustainability. Achievements include the creation of our bespoke wellbeing program #EMPOWHER, the expansion of our EDGE Gifted Education program, and the development of ground breaking literacy and numeracy projects in our Junior School.
The School’s 2020 – 2022 Strategic Plan will build on this tremendous progress with further initiatives to cement Saints Girls as a national leader in girls’ education.
