Dear Parents, Students and Friends

The Feast of St Peter

Happy Feast day. Today marks the feast day of our patron St Peter. The apostle Peter had a unique and very close bond to Jesus. It was Peter that was entrusted with the “Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven” (Matt 16:18-19). It was Peter that was referred to as the “the rock upon which the Church will be built”, and, it was Peter that Jesus commanded to “Feed my sheep, look after my lambs” (John 21:15-19). It is important as a community to not only celebrate the day (as we did on Tuesday) but to pause and reflect on how we can be more like Peter. What is it in our daily interactions with others, family, friends, colleagues or indeed the strangers we meet on life’s journey where we can embrace Peter’s mission of building the Kingdom of God. How can we live out faithfully our mission of feeding the College community with the life-giving Word of God. One certainty is that this can only happen if the College community, parents, staff and students, commit to this in partnership.

St. Peter’s Day

Our traditional St. Peter’s Day took on a new tradition as we came together as one school, at the beginning of the day, for a mass celebration at Casey Basketball stadium. No longer have we the space to house the whole school but this didn’t stop us from experiencing a wonderfully uplifting  mass in a creatively designed sacred space. Mr David Hansen spoke eloquently of the 6 character strengths Peter possessed: Spirituality, Fairness, Leadership, Kindness, Love and Humility. Mr Hansen challenged all to strive to be witnesses to each of these character strengths in our everyday lives. This was preceded by a talk by Mr David Edwards from the St Vincent de Paul Society. He spoke of Cranbourne being the second most needy suburb in Australia.  These were sobering words and placed the concept of one of our three pillars, Service, front and centre as we celebrated mass.

After mass it was back to the respective campuses for great activities and events, culminating in the traditional talent quest. Days like these are perfect vehicles in building community and I congratulate all concerned.

2018 St Peters Day

Central Australia and Northern Territory Expedition

41 students and 4 staff headed off on the annual pilgrimage to Central Australia and the Northern Territory on Wednesday morning. The group will visit such places as: Cooper Pedy, Uluru, Kings Canyon, Alice Springs, Katherine Gorge, Kakadu and Darwin. During their time they will be immersed in the history and culture of our Indigenous people. You will be able to follow their experiences on the St. Peter’s College Facebook page. We wish them a wonderful trip and a safe return

School Improvement Framework

As mentioned a number of times this year, St. Peter’s College is undergoing a School Improvement process throughout 2018, reflecting on our strategic plan over the past 4 years and projecting ourselves forward to the next 4 years where a rigorous School Improvement Agenda is to be planned and implemented.

In the next week all parents will receive a short survey, to complete via Care Monkey to complete. I encourage all parents to take this opportunity to contribute to our future directions.

Building a Sustainable Environment

This year we have invested $500,000 dollars to ensure we reduce our Carbon Footprint. This week we, on both campuses, connected our recently installed solar panels to the main electricity grid. From day 1 this project is cost positive in that the costs saved through the use of Solar energy will fund the costs of the project. It is expected that excess energy generated will soon be flowing back to the grid and be picked up by our electricity company. No longer will St. Peter’s be relying on energy generated by the burning of fossil fuels, thus assisting in reducing greenhouse gases. A win for the college and a win for the environment. I congratulate all that have contributed to this project.

Solar Panels

Wishing all a safe and restful holiday break. A reminder that school re-commences on Monday, 16 July.
