Welcome to St, Peters College, Cranbourne
Celebrating 20 Years throughout 2014
We are a Catholic community of education, faith and service built on a tradition of placing our trust in God to “Be Not Afraid”.
Our curriculum reflects our belief in the human person created in the image of God, therefore we educate the whole person - nurturing our students spiritual relationship with Jesus as well as their academic , intellectual , physical and social needs.
We encourage our students to value effort and strive for excellence, always challenging them to be the best they can be. Our teachers are committed and caring, working to ensure that when students leave this school, they do so with the knowledge, understanding, skills and confidence required to meet the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.
The decision of selecting a secondary school for your child is an important one and I hope that the information you find on this site and our college website www.stpeters.vic.edu.au will assist you in this decision.
Welcome once again. I invite parents to contact me to discuss any matter in further detail.

St Peters College & Assisi House Parent:
For those of you new to our College, and Assisi House in particular, I extend on behalf of all parents, a very warm welcome to you all! I hope that this will be the start of a wonderful journey for you and your son or daughter as they begin the next, exciting stage of their education.
Clearly, we don’t know each other at all. However, we do have, at least one, very important thing, in common…. we have CHOSEN to enrol our children in this excellent College and in doing so, makes us, to some extent, like-minded people.
My hope is that this will be the foundation for us to grow together as a Community. One in which we can be supportive of each other and work in partnership with the College to maximise academic, social and emotional outcomes for our sons and daughters.
It is vitally important that as a parent body, we positively affirm the standards and regulations required by the College of our children.
I speak with personal experience and firsthand knowledge of the dedication and commitment of the staff here at St Peters. Yet they alone cannot educate our sons and daughters. I urge you to be an active, interested and involved participant in their College life, in other words BE IN PARTNERSIP with the College.
Ask questions when unsure, challenge practices you believe can be improved…talk to your child’s teachers WHENEVER you are concerned, you don’t need to wait for formal reporting time to come around; take full advantage of the structure of the College House System… that’s its very rationale.
It must be said, that according to the standard definition of ‘partnership’ that it generally involves some degree of risk; but SUCCESSFUL partnerships can also yield great profits.
I want to leave you with one last thought and ask you ‘what risk are we exposing our children to by NOT operating in partnership with the College we chose to send our children to?
Mrs Winifred Martens, SPC and Assisi House parent.
