Choosing the right school for your child

As your child continues their education from pre-school, you face the very important decision of where to send your child for their primary school years.  St. Peter’s Primary School is a friendly, local option that strives for both academic and personal development for all.

Throughout the last number of years the school has been transformed with bright art work, cartoon style murals, new flooring and an interactive library and computer room. The addition of five brand new state of the art classrooms, a special needs classroom, learning support, and resource rooms have all helped to keep our school at the forefront of providing a 21st century education to your child.

St. Peter's prides itself on having child-friendly spaces to learn.
