At St. Peter’s developing leadership skills in our students is important. There are a number of ways these skills are developed especially in the senior school. Our year 6 students have leadership roles teams that they work in and develop projects around the school community and the wider community. Whether they are leading the school with sporting activities or representing the school as they go out in the wider community visiting residents at the local nursing home our leaders are proud of what they do in making a difference.
