It takes a village to raise a child
St Peter's Primary School Epping
We are a welcoming and inclusive community who understand the importance and value of a positive relationship between home and school. At St Peter’s Primary School there are many opportunities for parents / guardians to partner with the school. Families are strongly encouraged to work with school in the education and faith development of their child. Parents / Guardians are always very welcome at St Peter’s Primary School and you, as parents / guardians, make a valuable contribution to the school and parish community. At St Peter's we are proud of our strong connection between Parish and School.
St Peter's is a school which operates with the consent of the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne and is operated and governed by Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS). MACS governs and operates 292 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese to continue the mission of Catholic education to proclaim the Good News and equip our young people with the knowledge, skills and hope to live meaningful lives and enrich the world around them. Because the good work of educating the young is a co-responsible task led by every member of the Catholic school community, School Advisory Councils have been established to provide a crucial point of connection between the wider school community and school leaders. This governance model was designed to ease the administrative burden on our schools and parishes, allow parish priests to focus on the mission of education in the parish, enable greater collaboration between schools and ensure greater consistency in school policies and procedures.
