Latest News and Events



Fundraiser Updateshttp://www.stpetersrochedale.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/Fundraiser-Updates.aspxFundraiser Updates<p>Thank you to the families who supported our social justice fundraising initiatives last term. During Lent, we collected donations for Project Compassion which is an annual campaign held by the Catholic charity, Caritas and the theme this year was to build a 'Just Future'. The St Peter's Community raised $1024.20 through the collection boxes and our superhero day. Through your generosity you are helping to empower our most vulnerable neighbours worldwide to build a just future for themselves, their families and their communities.</p><p>Funds from the superhero donations raised during Wellness Week were also allocated to our Asylum  Seekers collection, along with money raised through the Prayer Flags which were created this term. Altogether, we raised $1000 which was donated to families in the St Paul's Community. (This also included some funds which were carried over from the end of 2017, which were originally raised to support an African community project, however the organisation contact fell through so it was decided to reallocate the  donations to our 2018 fundraising focus).</p><p><img alt="caritas1.jpg" src="/community-news/SiteAssets/Pages/Fundraiser-Updates/caritas1.jpg" style="margin:5px;" />​​</p>
Prep Enrolments 2019http://www.stpetersrochedale.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/Prep-Enrolments-2019.aspxPrep Enrolments 2019<p>We are currently completing enrolments for Prep 2019. The number of applications slightly outnumber the places on offer, but we are mindful of a few double applications and that the end of the year sees some families head into the state sector. Many new families report that “good words about St Peter’s” as being the reason to applying to come to St Peter’s School. It is also interesting to see the many nationalities that are coming to our school and we look ahead to how we celebrate and support this.​​</p><p><img alt="enrolnow.jpg" src="/community-news/SiteAssets/Pages/Prep-Enrolments-2019/enrolnow.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:556px;" /><br> </p>

The parent session aims to enhance understanding of the importance of interactions, connectedness and relationships in assisting children to build resilience. We hope to see as many as possible of our St Peter's parents for this information session and wonderful opportunity for our community. This parent night is open to all St Peter’s parents. They will be running sessions with the Yr. 4s and 5s during the day.</p></div><div style="text-align:justify;"><p><strong>Supporting Learners who speak other languages</strong>: We are also hosting a meeting for Parents of EAL/D students.
