There have been a number of celebrations marking the tenth anniversary of the Opening of St Peters Springfield. On Friday 19 January, there was an evening celebration party attended by 150 guests.

On the morning of Monday 29 January – exactly ten years to the day since 29 January 2008, when we opened the doors of our school with 96 students – we held the Founders’ Day Service. At the end of the year, we had an enrolment of 121 students. Today: 562 students. It was a Queensland first: a school establishing a second P–12 school of itself. The College Council and the LCAQD were displaying Plus Ultra! Our St Peters community thanks you for your vision and tenacity!

Following the Service, we all enjoyed the official launch of the Ten-Year History Book. Speakers included Mrs Judith Hill, the Editor of the publication and Bishop Paul Smith, who officially launched the book. A special thanks to all who contributed to this.

We’ve seen so many changes over the years. Our young, small school has matured into a well-established, medium-size school. The great Australian dream is to buy your own block of land and to build your own, purpose-designed house. After an 18-month design process, a nine-month build, we moved from our leased premises at Education City to our new home in January 2012.

Our sincerest gratitude to Professor Bill Curnow, Mr Steve Rudolph, Mr Paul Salter, Mr Neil Clark and architect Ms Nat Bush for the result you see before you when you visit the school. As many of you would know, St Peters Springfield has been built on rock – most appropriate, as Jesus told Peter: ‘Upon this rock I build my church!’ Thank you to our Sovereign God, for his abundant blessings!
