healthy relationships are key to the wellbeing of our whole community which are fostered through our restorative practices approach. restorative practices mean students and staff take responsibility for their actions. the goal is restoring relationships by identifying the harm that has occurred, taking the necessary steps to address this and being held accountable so true reconciliation can occur.
our christian ethos is given practical expression by our service learning program. students learn they have a divine purpose to serve their neighbour in acts of kindness in mutually-beneficial relationships.
st peters partners with a range of organisations to enable students to serve others, whether they be within our school community, across the road, or around the world.
teaching methods are professional and can be individualised. teachers are great. there is an emphasis on christian values and the school has a real sense of community.— denise ozuome
