As St Peter’s Girls nears 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 current facilities, the School’s new 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 of the plan’s milestones, including the recent opening of our new Middle School and the looming completion of a cutting-edge Library. The next chapters are just as exciting, showing why there has never been a better time to be at Saints Girls.
St Peter’s Girls has established a firm strategic framework to guide the School as we approach our 125th anniversary.
Our Strategic Plan for 2017 – 2019, entitled A New Vision – Towards 125, details initiatives across seven integral elements: Academics, Wellbeing, Staff, Co-Curricular, Spaces and 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 pioneering Sisters.
