Uniform Matters

Mrs Michelle McDonnell - Principal
Our School Shop will be open via appointment in the second week of the upcoming holidays for purchase of uniforms.  Please contact reception to organise an appointment time.
New St Peter's Grammar Uniform
A reminder that students wearing our new transeasonal uniform may continue to wear their current uniform items throughout the year with the following compulsory additions for Years 3 - 6 in Terms 2 and 3:
- School tie (boys only)
- Navy blazer
Optional uniform items for the colder months are as follows:
Kindergarten - Year 6
  • Navy pinafore with long sleeve St Peter's blouse, worn with navy stockings
Kindergarten - Year 2
  • Navy elastic waist long pants with long sleeve St Peter's blouse
Year 3 - Year 6
  • Navy button up trousers with long sleeve St Peter's blouse
Kindergarten - Year 2
  • Navy elastic waist long pants with long sleeve St Peter's shirt
Year 3 - Year 6
  • Navy button up long pants with long sleeve St Peter's shirt 
Stock of most uniform items has been received, except for button up long pants (Years 3 - 6) and elastic waist long pants for both boys and girls (Kindergarten - Year 2). 
We are expecting delivery of these by the end of April.  If these arrive earlier, we will communicate this with families.
Please note the following:
Girls may not wear stockings with the St Peter's dress, skort or cullottes.  Navy school socks must continue to be worn with these uniform items.
Long sleeve tops may not be worn under short sleeve shirts / blouses or the St Peter's dress as long sleeve options are available.  If required for warmth on Sports Day (Wednesday), a long sleeve white t-shirt may be worn under the sports t-shirt.
Old St Peter's Uniform
We will have a 2 week changeover period at the beginning of Term 2, with all students expected in Winter Uniform by Week 3.  
Please note that we no longer have stock of Grey blazers.  Students in Year 1 and 2 are encouraged to wear their blazer if it still fits, however, in line with our new St Peter's uniform, this will no longer be compulsory.  Students in Years 4-6 wearing the Old St Peter's uniform are expected to wear a blazer.  

Carpark Safety

As we come to the end of Term 1, I would like to thank families for their efforts in ensuring that our students are both dropped at school and picked up each afternoon in a safe manner.  
Please note: no parents/carers with students should cross the school driveway entrance at Howe Street to access cars in the Bowling Club Carpark.  Access to this carpark is along the path behind the Church Annex, crossing the single Church drive through lane when safe to do so.


On Tuesday, 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 along Queen Street, 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 wear full summer or winter uniform including their walking hat. We will assemble near Campbelltown Mall, on the corner of Queen and Allman Streets at 8.00am to secure our place for an 8.25am start to the march.

Please report to Mrs McDonnell who will be present on the morning. 

ANZAC Day Assembly

On Wednesday, 26 April, we will hold our ANZAC Assembly at 9.00am.  We would like to invite parents and grandparents to join us for this occasion and extend the invitation to any current or ex-service men or women known to members of our school community to join us on this occasion.

Intumbane Day

What a lovely way to conclude Term 1!

We held our 'Intumbane Day' and had open classrooms for families to visit their children and have an opportunity to have lunch together.

A huge thank you to all our students and families who generously donated to raise money for Intumbane, our link School in Africa.

As a school community we have raised over $1100!

We are so blessed to have such a supportive school community.



Premier's Reading Challenge

Mrs Deborah Nash - Head of Learning Enhancement
All students should have received their log-in details for the Premier's Reading Challenge last week. Please contact the office if your child does not have the log-in details in the front of their school diary.
If your child has participated in the PRC previously at a different school, we are able to contact the PRC team and request they merge the past and current accounts to allow the awards for completing the PRC for certain numbers of years to be maintained. Please send an email to LE@stpeters.nsw.edu.au to let us know what school/s they previously attended and that you would like us to have your child's accounts merged.
A reminder that all books that are not registered as PRC books on the official PRC booklist can be included in the St Peter's Challenge - just keep a list of the title, author and date each book was read.
Happy reading!

Celebrating Our Students

Mrs Melinda Richardson
Where has that term gone? We have had an amazing start to the year and it has been wonderful to see the growth of all our learners, academically, physically, spiritually, socially and emotionally. It is such a wonderful part of our learning community at St Peter's that we celebrate the journey of the whole child. Our students have worked incredibly hard this term, and I commend each and every one of them for the efforts this term. 
Thank you also to our parent community, for the way you have engaged with us in order to support your child's progress across the term. Thank you for your attendance at a range of school events, and your willingness to communicate effectively with the teachers involved in the care of your children. Education at St Peter's is a partnership and we just could not do it without you. Your visible partnership affirms with our learners, the valuable relationship we share. 

Happy Easter and A Restful School Holiday

I pray that over the coming days our families can reflect on the story of Christ's sacrifice for us, so beautifully illustrated at our Whole School Service. It is a gift from God, in order to restore our relationship with Him. Ephesians 2: 8, 9 reminds us 'For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves - it is a gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast'. When we put our faith in Christ, through his death and resurrection, we are made alive again. This is a great cause for celebration, sweetened by a little bit of chocolate! 
May you all enjoy a restful school holiday, supporting the Learner Profile attribute of balance. We look forward to connecting with you again, as Term 2 commences. 

Whole School Easter Service

Mr Peter Stevenson - Dean of Biblical Studies

Our Whole School Easter Service was a fantastic opportunity to gather together as a community, singing chapel songs, praying and reading the Bible.

Bishop Peter Lin spoke about how Jesus takes the penalty that we deserve upon himself.

It was a great night to reflect on what Jesus has done for us through his death and resurrection at Easter. 

If you would like to know more, please come along to Campbelltown Anglican Churches Easter Services this Friday and Sunday at 10.00am.

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter!


Band & Strings

Mr Brad Stoicescu - Band & Strings Conductor

Training Band & Strings

We have received an incredible response from students and families interested in joining our Training Programmes! It’s so great to know that there are so many eager musicians out there!

A couple of things to note:

Training Strings

  • Due to the overwhelming interest shown in the Training Strings Programme, we are unable to offer Kindergarten students a place in this year’s offering. Students that were unsuccessful this year are encouraged to apply again in 2024. 2023 applicants will receive priority next year.

Applying For Both Ensembles

  • Where a student has applied for both Training Strings AND Training Band, they have been allocated to one ensemble. This allows a greater share of opportunity but also to not overwhelm students by learning multiple instruments simultaneously. Again, these allocations are based on instrument availability, student preference, and suitability to the student.

Training Band

  • As outlined in the Expression of Interest Survey, while preferences are acknowledged, not all first preferences can be provided. For example, we have received Percussion as the first preference of 14 students but there may only be space for approximately 6.

  • The good news is that we are able to allocate an instrument for all applicants based on your four nominated preferences!

Formal invitations, permission slips, instrument sizing and allocations will take place in early Term 2. Once this is done we will commence our weekly tutorials!

Band & String Ensembles

It has been a fantastic term across all our ensembles. We are building a group of committed and diligent musicians, and this can be heard in the constant improvement at rehearsals and performances. These improvements are the result of regular attendance, and developing a healthy practice routine with the aid of their practice journals. Students are embracing a growth mindset where mistakes are embraced as part of the learning process. The band room can be a vulnerable place, but with the encouraging and supportive culture we are developing, that vulnerability is what allows some of the best growth to take place.

Congratulations to our most recent promotees who have stepped up from Training Band into Junior Band:

  • Louis G

  • Ian K

  • Evie N

  • Christian S

  • Iasona T

  • Doris W

  • Lucy W

Questions or comments are always welcome: bstoicescu@stpeters.nsw.edu.au

Have a blessed Easter break.

Student of the Month - March

Violet is a kind and caring student who always cares about how other people are going. She is honest and can be trusted with different roles and responsibilities. While she is a very quiet member of her class, Violet listens carefully to help with her learning, and shares her ideas with other people. When something is difficult, Violet doesn't give up. Instead, she perseveres and thinks about how she could get help so that she can improve. 
Violet has a wonderful sense of humour and enjoys making her classmates laugh and looking after them. She likes to make other people feel included, and takes opportunities to support her peers and teachers in any way she can. Wherever you find her, you can be sure that she will be doing the right thing at the right time. The Year 2 teachers are very proud of Violet and are excited to present her to the school as the Student of the Month. 
Congratulations Violet!

Congratulations to Anya!

Congratulations to Anya who performed in the Camden Show Talent Show on Friday, 24 March. Anya was awarded a special Encouragement Award for Singing. Her name is the first to be carved onto a small plaque.

Anya and her family would like to thank St Peter's teachers and especially Ms Francesca for her dedication in vocals at school to guide Anya.

Teen Ranch Holiday Adventure Programme

The Easter holidays are almost upon us and Teen Ranch have a full holiday programme for 10 - 17 year olds who wish for a day, or several days of adventure in the outdoors.
At Teen Ranch their purpose is to introduce young people to Christ through fun, safe and high energy outdoor experiences.  They have a variety of outdoor activities, including ropes, horse riding, archery and canoeing.  They are a not-for-profit organisation and have been in continuous operation in Cobbitty since 1961.  Over the holiday period they welcome young people from all over Sydney to their site for a day of fun they rarely forget.

Christ Has Risen, He Has Risen Indeed!

Christ Has Risen, He Has Risen Indeed!
These are the words that I love to hear on Easter Sunday, as we celebrate Christ's victory over our sin and death itself. What a joy to know that Jesus has done what we could never do - restore our relationship with God.
We hope you have a wonderful break over Easter, but even more we hope you know that joy of a restored relationship with God.
We look forward to seeing you back at school for Term 2 on Wednesday, 26 April 2023.
Have a safe and happy Easter.
