We are excited to be introducing a new St. Peter's School Bus Service, beginning Monday, 24 August 2020.
The new service, along with alterations to existing routes, mean that we will now have buses servicing the following additional areas: Wedderburn, St Helens Park, Rosemeadow, Glen Alpine, Harrington Park and Blair Athol.
The cost per trip for the first child is $2.00 per trip and every sibling thereafter is $1.50 per trip.
In the morning, students will be collected from specified bus stops along the route. Upon arrival at school, students will be met by school staff, and escorted into school. Prep students will be taken to the Prep Classrooms and supervised by Prep Staff. All other students will be supervised as per the normal daily routine.
In the afternoon, students will be escorted to the bus by school staff and then dropped off to parents/carers at their specified bus stop.
If you would like to make a booking for our St. Peter's Bus Service, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the Bus Service Procedure and Agreement.
We look forward to commencing our new runs.
On the Friday, 18 September 2020 (Week 8) we will have our annual school Science Day.
This year our Science Day will follow the National Science Week theme of 'Deep Blue: Innovations for the Future of our Oceans'.
During the course of the day, students will develop their scientific inquiry skills through a variety of hands-on science, technology and engineering activities, organised by the classroom teachers.
They will participate in a show run by Fizzics Education, exploring scientific principles through fun experiments and exciting displays. More information relevant to each grade may be provided by classroom teachers.
It is now confirmed that IPSSO Sport will not return in Term 3.
Looking ahead to Term 4, the current plan is that Winter Sports will commence and Summer Sports will not return in 2020. This is the most up-to-date information at this point. If your child was in a Summer IPSSO team and has not returned their shirt (Cricket and Basketball) or their Oz Tag shorts, please return these at your earliest convenience.
This term has seen the return of Tennis Coaching to School Sport.
We have developed a new partnership with the local Tennis Club and as interest builds, private lessons during class time on a Tuesday as well as lunchtime on Tuesday and Wednesday will begin.
If you are interested in small group lessons with 4-6 students, call Jared from Centre Court Tennis on 0404 457 088. Alternatively check out their website at
We hope to start lessons by around Week 6.
Students were able to compete in a modified Running Carnival at the Campbelltown Showground on Wednesday of this week. We held the standard races of 100m, 200m and 800m. While the track layout was not perfect in comparison to what we have become accustomed to at the Campbelltown Stadium, and we had no parent helpers or spectators, students still had a great time and appreciated the opportunity to move beyond the school gates and experience a ‘normal’ school event. Field events have taken place during lunch time and PE lessons and points have been added to running results to calculate Age Champions and House winners.
The winning House, based on participation points, was Roxburgh on 90, closely followed by Argyle on 89 and Cumberland in 3rd place on 85 points. The overall Carnival winner was Argyle on 425 points, well ahead of their closest rivals Cumberland on 326, Roxburgh on 234 and Cook on 320.

I have recently been informed by NSW AFL that the Community Auskick programme that commenced in Term 2, will not return this year.
There has been some confusion over emails received by parents stating that packs have been delivered to school. They have not yet arrived, however when they do, all students will receive their pack and parents will also receive an email from NSW AFL with a link to receive a partial refund for the programme.
The children have been very busy at OSHC since the beginning of Term 3. They have been continuing to care for our garden which we updated during Vacation Care. There are still some more plants to be planted which the children will be working on next week. They have also been busy making some totem poles that will be displayed in the garden.
The children have continued to be very busy with their drawing and have been working hard exploring with many mediums including pencils, textas, oil pastels and charcoal. The children created an OSHC Art Exhibition for their peers and teachers to come and see their work. As you can see from the pictures they have done some awesome work!
A well deserving recipient of this award, Matilda is a student who always strives to achieve her very best with focus and enthusiasm. She has a gentle and kind approach to her friendships and has a carefree and resilient attitude which means she is sought after by others.
Matilda approaches her learning with creativity and flair as she goes ‘outside the box’ to demonstrate her learning and is a real ‘go-getter’. She can be an effective leader as well as a compassionate listener and encourager, always displaying beautiful manners.
Matilda involves herself in various co-curricular groups and is an excellent role model for others to follow.
Mr Joseph Mizzi will be Acting Facilities Manager as from Monday, 24 August 2020. Mr Mizzi is currently a member of our facilities team.
