Uniform Matters

Mrs Michelle McDonnell - Principal
As we move into the second half of Term 1, families are reminded that this would be a good time to begin considering the purchase of Winter Uniforms. Our School Shop has many of these items in stock, with more to come over the coming weeks.  Orders for clothing that is not in stock, can be made, with items delivered to classrooms as they arrive. As we are still operating our shop by appointment, it would be appreciated if families could contact our School Office to organise the purchase of winter items that may be required.  Orders can also be made via email.
As we move to a trans-seasonal school uniform, red tracksuit pants will be available, however, not compulsory throughout Term 2 and 3 for our Preparatory School Students.

Grandparent's Day - Save the Date

As has been previously communicated, Grandparent's Day (originally advertised for next week) has been postponed. 
This will now be held on Monday, 24 October 2022 (Term 4 Week 3).
We are so excited to welcome our Grandparents onsite on this date!

Intumbane Movie Day

Each year, St Peter's raises money to support Intumbane Primary School in South Africa.  Over the years, money raised has assisted Intumbane to build and stock a library, install a water pump and plant gardens.  Staff from St Peter's have also visited Intumbane and Miss Bongi (Deputy Principal) has visited us at St Peter's.
On Wednesday, 6 April, we will be holding our Intumbane Movie Day.  Students will visit our 'Movie Theatre' in the hall and watch a movie with their friends and enjoy some treats.  A donation of $5.00 per student will be collected at the Main Gate as students enter on this day.  All money raised will be donated to Intumbane.

Student of the Month - February

Cooper is a caring and determined young man. He shows excellent focus in the classroom, contributing to discussions in every area of learning and making thoughtful inquiries.

Cooper tries his best, asks questions when he needs to and listens to teacher feedback to improve his work. He is friendly to everyone and does a great job of helping to look after younger students.

Cooper shows his kind nature with others and makes sure that people are being treated well. He shows great respect for teachers and always tries to do the right thing.

Cooper is a very worthy recipient of the Student of the Month award.

Congratulations to Cooper! 

Toys 'n' Tucker 2021

On behalf of Anglicare, I’d like to say thank you for participating in our 2021 Toys’n’Tucker campaign!

In order to keep families and communities safe, Toys’n’Tucker looked a little different. In total, Anglican churches, schools and other partners raised $162,291.94 & we’re thankful for how your school community contributed. This money allowed Anglicare to pack hampers in our warehouse, and hand deliver these hampers to the doors of families in need. Because of the contribution from your school and others, all of Anglicare’s vulnerable clients and many others were able to receive a generous Christmas hamper full of essentials, Christmas treats, and the message of the hope found in Jesus.

Please pass on our gratitude to your students, teachers & parents for their contribution.  

Thank you for your ongoing partnership with us.

Prayer Points

  • Pray for our School and local churches as preparations continue for upcoming Easter Services.
  • May the message of Jesus’ love, sacrifice and forgiveness be faithfully proclaimed within our community during this special season.

Developing Resilience

It has been a great privilege to meet with many families over recent weeks to conduct Information Sessions, Tours and Interviews. A common statement that is shared during my various conversations is 'All we want is for our child/ren to be happy'. I suspect this comment resonates with many families across our community. As parents our job is to love, care and nurture our children. Of course, we want the best for them. We naturally try to protect them from difficulties and do all we can to make our children feel good or happy. While happiness is no doubt a worthy and admirable goal, should we be aspiring for more?

As we know, life is full of adversity and disappointment. We know first-hand how much our lives have been disrupted over the past two years. Life for some over this time has been far from happy. Teaching our children to bounce back when life doesn’t go to plan is key to coping with difficulties. Rather than simply creating happiness, there is great potential benefit in allowing our children to experience challenges in order for them to develop resilience.

One of the many difficulties as a parent is to find opportunities to allow our children to fail safely.  Allowing children to face challenges and openly discuss their disappointments in order to assist them in developing healthy coping strategies and to build resilience. 

When schools and home partner to intentionally nurture and model resilience, we shape and develop young minds with the necessary skills needed to navigate life well in the future. Now that’s a powerful goal.



Cross Country

The St Peter's School Cross Country has had to be rescheduled to Monday, 4 April 2022 at Mount Annan Botanical Gardens. This is due to ground conditions at the gardens and earlier alternate dates being unavailable.  

IPSHA Cross Country has been postponed due to ground conditions at Kings School. It will be rescheduled to Term 2, 2022. 


On Monday, 25 April, ANZAC Day, St Peter's staff and students have been invited to participate with other schools, community members and RSL Veterans in the ANZAC Day March through the streets of Campbelltown. The March will conclude with a wreath laying ceremony at Mawson Park in respect of all who have given their lives in defence of this great country. 

It would be wonderful to have as many of our students present to mark this significant day. If you are able to attend, students should ideally wear full Winter uniform including their walking hat. We will assemble near Campbelltown Mall, on the corner of Queen and Allman Streets at 8.00 am to secure our place for an 8.25 am start to the march.

Please report to myself (Mr Raft) who will be present on the morning. We will communicate accordingly should there be any COVID related changes to this event.
