Girls Prep: places available for 2019, Grade 0 and Grade 5

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.

St Peter’s Girls Prep has a very definite purpose, which 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 to not only cope, but thrive in high school as well as in life after school. Our focus is divided into three main areas: character development, skills for life and core academic skills.

Head of Junior Prep's welcome
Heather Kissack

The Girls Junior Prep School represents the best of traditional and contemporary educational philosophy. With its beautiful state-of-the-art building, built on the premises of the original Boys JP School, St Peter’s Girls Prep harnesses the best of both worlds.  Our aim is for every little girl, entering the Junior Prep School, to feel that she is an integrated member of the St Peter’s family within a very short space of time. At the same time, the school aims to meet the demands of educating for the 21st century, while creating a nurturing, happy and joyful space in which to learn.

THE HAPPIEST SOUNDS IN THE WORLD

Girls Prep  March 18, 2019 | Cultural | Marguerite Schmitt

Music is a valuable part of a well-rounded education. From maths and science to reading and beyond, children perform better in almost every area when there is music in the curriculum. At St Peter’s it all starts in the Junior Prep, where a love of music is nurtured. At the same time, our wish is that the girls enjoy a variety of activities that give them experiential knowledge of music concepts that will be reinforced throughout their musical journey at St Peter’s Prep and beyond. Alongside these, it is evident that music helps to develop critical life skills.
