School Climate Parent Survey
During Week 5 of this term, all parents and caregivers will receive a survey about the climate at St Peter’s. We encourage all parents to complete the survey before the end of term, as this an important opportunity for parents to tell our school staff how things are going for them and their children in our school.
The response format requires parents to consider how often each statement takes place in terms of: Almost Never, Rarely, Sometimes, Often and Almost Always. These responses enable us to make judgments about where St Peter’s is on our improvement journeys, to set goals and design strategies for improvement, and to monitor and demonstrate school improvement over time.
The feedback does NOT include the data of individuals; rather, the feedback involves a graph based on feedback from all parents. Parent impressions about St Peter’s is what we are seeking, we value your honesty and there are no right or wrong answers.
All staff and students from Pre Primary to Year 6 will also complete a survey about the school climate at St Peter’s. The ultimate goal of this survey and school improvement is to improve outcomes for all students, including levels of achievement and well-being.
Thanking you in advance.

BENJAMIN DAWES 1B
Ben, you are a kind and caring person who is respectful to your peers and all in our school community. You listen carefully to instructions, commence work promptly and display dedication and pride in all your school work.
Ben, you approach everything with such a positive attitude and always strive for excellence. Your hard work, passion for learning, and desire to do well is a great combination for success!
You consistently set a positive example for your peers by displaying the TRUE values of TRUST, RESPECT, UNITY AND EXCELLENCE inside and outside of the classroom.
In the classroom, Ben, you are a quiet achiever, who can always be trusted to avoid the distractions of others and produce quality work. In group situations, you are respectful to other students by valuing their opinions and you wait for your turn to speak. Your interactions with your peers are always kind and thoughtful, making you a valued friend to all.
Congratulations Ben, you are so deserving of this award and you should be very proud of this achievement!
RICKY DOWSON 6W
Ricky, when I think of you, I think of someone who is a quiet achiever. Just because you don’t say as much as others, doesn’t mean people don’t notice you. It isn’t about having the loudest voice or the most to say, but instead it is about knowing when to speak and when to listen. You always speak from the heart and listen with care. Your peers know that they can count on you as you are a champion for others who defends the underdog. You are a person who is not ashamed to stand up for what’s right, making you a great role model for others.
Ricky, you are a student who truly embodies St Peter’s TRUE values. You demonstrate excellence on a daily basis, as you are a conscientious, hardworking individual. You always give things a go and ‘I can’t’ isn’t part of your vocabulary.
I can trust that you are consistently doing the right thing, and this is because you respect our school and those around you. You are a remarkable young man who whole heartedly embodies the values that Jesus taught us.
Congratulations on being named Senior Person of the Week!
Person of the Week – 9/8/19
ADAM DI LEO 2B
The Junior Person of the Week must have all the makings of a genuine, trustworthy and hardworking individual. When I think of you, Adam, I think of a young man who encompasses all these qualities.
Saint Mary MacKillop said, “Never see a need without doing something about it.” Adam, you are a compassionate student who always puts the needs of others before your own. Your kindness is one of your beautiful strengths. If someone is hurt or upset, you care for them and are always willing to help.
Adam, you strive to do your best in all learning areas, and you exemplify good behaviour and impeccable manners.
I cannot wait to see what goals you will conquer by the end of this year.
Adam, you truly deserve to be named St Peter’s Junior Person of the Week!
SIENA CHADINHA 5B
There is something special about quiet achievers; that their actions speak louder than their words. Siena, it is a pleasure to see your actions speak for themselves each day.
You treat others with kindness, ensuring your peers feel supported and encouraged in their endeavours. You are there to help a friend in need and can be relied upon to offer a gentle word of care when someone is feeling down.
Siena, your compassionate nature shines through in the way you show the utmost respect to those you meet and in turn you receive the same respect back.
Your wonderful work ethic helps you to achieve excellence in many areas of school life and is a fantastic example for others. You are dependable and trustworthy, and your actions reflect our TRUE values beautifully.
Most importantly, you display these admirable qualities selflessly. You simply step up to the challenge, gently and quietly, without ever expecting anything in return which is truly admirable.
Congratulations on being named the Senior Person of the Week!

Well done on an outstanding performance!
Our Year 6 students performed brilliantly at the Performing Arts Festival on Wednesday. Their choral speech titled, ‘What I learnt at Camp,’ was written by their teachers and the students performed with excellent rhythmic timing, vocal inflection and expression. Their overall presentation was outstanding.
