Future Direction

As St Peter’s Girls marks more than 125 years of excellence in girls' education, we reflect on the past to celebrate our achievements and look to the future to build on our success.

Strategic Plan

St Peter's Girls is embarking upon our 2020 - 2022 Strategic Plan to reinforce our reputation as a world-class deliverer of girls' education.

Following on from our previous Strategic Plan, it retains seven integral focus areas: Academics, Wellbeing, Staff, Co-Curricular, Spaces and Places, Community and Organisational Sustainability.

Have a listen to Principal Julia Shea about our vision to lift Saints Girls to even greater heights:

Our Strategic Plan for 2017 - 2019, A New Vision - Towards 125, was devised in the lead up to our 125th anniversary and was successfully completed at the end of 2019.

Master Plan

Saints Girls are thriving in our new state-of-the-art Science Centre.

Featuring three purpose-built laboratories for the pillars of Science – Biology, Chemistry and Physics – and four general laboratories, this transformational facility cements St Peter's Girls as a national leader in STEM education.

The project has also given rise to an expanded Visual Arts space, a new Junior School Art hub and upgraded pool facilities.

With South Australia at the forefront of technology, particularly in defence and now space, there has never been a more important time to ignite in our girls a spark for Science.

The official opening on Friday 18 October 2019 featured an inspiring speech by Australia’s Chief Defence Scientist Professor Tanya Monro and other powerful highlights:



Our previous Science facility has been transformed with a dedicated Media Hub, a new IT centre, as well as additional new classrooms for our Junior School. Other classrooms along the Junior School corridor are being refurbished and new breakout spaces created.

The Science Centre is a major milestone from the School’s Master Plan, The Next Challenge: Building for Tomorrow, which was launched in July 2015. Other achievements include expanding our Early Learners' Centre, increasing parking spaces and access to additional sporting facilities in neighbouring Bell Yett Reserve, installing high speed network services to boost online learning, building a new Middle School and opening a new Library.

Truly, there has never been a better time to be at Saints Girls.
