Welcome to St Peter’s Girls Prep School

Rector's welcome
Greg Royce

My first contact with St Peter’s was as a young teacher accompanying sports teams. The boys (in those days, only the Boys School existed) always seemed so much happier and more spontaneous and confident than those at the other schools I knew.

Coming from a far less well-endowed school, I was in awe of the magnificent grounds and facilities, yet the staff members were unfailingly welcoming, always treating one as an equal. There was a unique atmosphere of warm informality and professionalism.

Headmaster's welcome
Darrel Webb

I feel very privileged to be the second Head of St Peter’s Girls Prep School. My association with the school started in 2006, as a parent, when my daughter joined the school as one of the founding pupils. My son also joined the St Peter’s family a few years later.

My teaching career started at St Stithians College in 1991. Nine years later, I moved to St David’s as Deputy Headmaster. In 2006, I was appointed Principal of Dainfern Prep School and enjoyed 10 happy years there, before moving to St Peter’s. I, therefore, have had the privileged experience of teaching all boys, co-ed and all girls!

St Peter’s Girls Prep has a very definite purpose. That is for our girls to believe in themselves and to show grit and determination at all times! We are not a prissy girls’ school!

Everything we do is based on the foundation of the Anglican Church and our explicit teaching of responsibility, resilience, collaboration, compassion, respect and honour. We strive to teach our girls the skills required not only to cope, but to thrive in high school as well as in life after school.

Head of Junior Prep's welcome
Trish Attlee

It is a joy and privilege to be back at St Peter's as the Head of the Junior Prep. I have been associated with the school in various capacities for over 30 years and have a deep love for everything St Peter's stands for.

St Peter's is founded upon strong Christian values. We advocate a growth mind-set and a resilient spirit. Our diverse school community assist in developing a deep understanding and a genuine care and concern for people who are different to themselves. Our curriculum has been developed to prepare our girls for life in an ever-changing world. It equips them with competencies that go beyond the traditional classroom and grows innovative and creative thinking, problem solving, collaborative and relevant learning, which will hold our girls in good stead for the future.

St Peter's Prep Schools: The Difference ... Part 6

As we introduced changes to our teaching methodology, we began to notice improvements in the ways the boys and girls learned.  However, we were not satisfied.  Many of us felt that children had the ability to learn far more quickly than was usually the case at school.  We began to look at the question of motivation.  What was it that held the attention of some children so completely that they were oblivious to all around them, even to offers of food?

ST PETER'S PREP SCHOOLS: THE DIFFERENCE...PART 5

Some of us are born with simply extraordinary talent.  This type proficiency normally only achieved by a handful of adults usually results in two responses.  We are either inspired to develop our own talents or we are simply overwhelmed and say, ‘I could never do that’.  In the main though, most associate such brilliance with success.
