St Peters Expo

Last Wednesday, our 2018 College Expo at the Performing Arts Centre showcased our many and varied clubs to the student body. The Environmental, Multicultural, Duke of Edinburgh, Social Justice, Student 4 Students, Theatre Sports, Robotics, Boardroom and Art groups participated.

Responding to a challenge set by the Faith Group, other groups created and displayed posters to the theme of ‘Compassion.’ Students considered how compassion applies to their unique passions.

There were lots of other activities, discussions and complimentary cupcakes. Girls Boarding spread the love by giving out roses for Valentine’s Day. It was a great opportunity for students to share their vision and recruit new students to their groups. Thank you to students and staff who supported the event.

Among the groups were: Environmental Group, Multi-Cultural Group, Duke of Edinburgh, Social Justice, Student 4 Students, Theatre Sports, Robotics, the Boardroom and Art Group.

Congratulations to the Social Justice and Sutherland students who worked hard fundraising during the Swimming Carnival to raise over $1,000 for refugees in our community as well as the Indigenous Immersion Program.

Mater International Women’s Day Fun Run

This term, the Social Justice Group has been busy promoting the Mater International Women’s Day Fun Run, which will take place on Sunday 4 March and supports women with breast cancer.

On Tuesday 6 February, guest speakers from the Mater Hospital visited the College to share how the run started and how funds raised support those battling breast cancer.

The event is just around the corner and more than 100 students have signed up. Spaces are almost full for race day, so if you still wish to sign up, please do so quickly! 

To support this worthwhile initiative, you can make a donation to the St Peters team in their quest to raise $10,000 for the Mater Chicks in Pink program. You can support by: 

  • Donating online;   
  • Purchasing a $2 pin from the Junior High or Senior School receptions; or
  • Placing your donations in the tins at the Junior High or Senior School receptions.

So far, the St Peters team has raised just under $4,000 and with your kind support we are sure we can meet our goal! Every donation makes a difference.
