St Peters Parents and Friends (P&F) works with the College to celebrate our school spirit and cultural diversity, and to develop partnerships to ensure our students benefit from these community networks, skills, resources, and expertise.

The P&F focus is on community building and friend-raising and provision of financial support to parent groups within the community, who work together to improve the quality of co-curricular programs and activities for students.

Aims

  • Provide a means of support, information and avenue for involvement for parents, guardians and caregivers in their children’s education and the greater school community;
  • Encourage collaboration between parents, guardians and caregivers, and school staff; and
  • Support and nurture the Christian ethos of the College.

Objectives

  • build community;
  • facilitate collaboration;
  • social engagement; and
  • community service.

Parent Support Groups

The role of parent support groups is to support the activities of the College and assist College-appointed representatives in the organisation of events and fundraising.

Community Hub

Community Hub at St Peters is a parent group from all Sub Schools, who meet every Thursday in the P&F Centre. Their role:

  • bring community member together and help new families settle in; 
  • help St Peters and wider community by providing handmade and donated goods to Knitting for Brisbane’s Needy, Pillowcases for Oncology Kids and families in need in our local area; and
  • support College activities such as the Year 8 Production and Year 9 Christian Studies; 

Community Grants

The Community Grants Program was established in 2009 to provide financial assistance to parent support groups who seek to develop and improve the educational experience of St Peters students. The Program allows for $75 000 to be granted to parent groups annually.

Each year, the P&F proudly support events for the St Peters community, including:

  • Symposia;
