Welcome to the end of Term 3

This term we have been fortunate to continue face-to-face learning at St Peter’s with the students for the 10 week duration. We have also been able to hold some modified athletics and cross country events and liturgical celebrations, which has seen school life return to some normality for our students. School finishes for term 3 this Friday the 18th of September.

Leading into Term 4, we are still operating under the same Brisbane Catholic Education COVID guidelines for school with only a few adjustments to our routine which will begin on Tuesday the 6th of October:

  • Parent access to school grounds is still restricted in Term 4
  • Staff, parents and other adult visitors to observe physical distancing measures by not congregating in areas inside or around the school.
  • All students will begin at 8:30am each day. Before school supervision of students will begin at 8am.
  • Pick up times will be staggered in the afternoon. Prep and Year 1 will finish at 2:50pm. We ask that only Prep & Year 1 parents arrive to the pick up area between 2:50 and 3pm to allow us to clear the space safely and reduce congestion at this busy time of day. Years 2- 6 will move to the pick-up area at 3pm.
  • The car park area will remain drive-thru drop off and pick up only. Parents may park in the paddock and collect their children from the grassed pick up area, however are asked to observe physical distancing and return to their cars promptly.
  • Supervision will be provided at the school entrances during drop off and pick up times.
  • Please DO NOT drop off your children to school before 8.00am as there is no teacher on duty until that time. If you need to drop off your children earlier than 8.00am, please contact OSHC to book a placement before school.

We thank you for your ongoing support, patience and understanding and your cooperation in keeping our community safe. Of course, we know that things can change quickly and if there are any updates during the school holiday break which will impact these arrangements, parents will be notified through an email from the school or alerted on BCE connect.

We wish all of our St Peter's families a safe and relaxing school holiday break. School resumes for term 4 for all students on Tuesday the 6th of October.
