At St Peter Claver College we teach the values that last a lifetime such as faith, kindness, honesty and compassion. This happens in a context that celebrates the arts and culture, fosters spiritual, academic and personal growth and invites students to participate in creating a world they wish to live in.
Research tells us that the single most effective protective factor for young people is feeling a sense of belonging. At St Peter Claver College we offer students multiple ways to belong.
The traditions of hospitality, welcome and inclusion were laid down very early in this community as many Vietnamese families seeking safety in Australia were welcomed at St Peter Claver College during the late 1970's and early 1980's. Currently some 27 different cultures are represented at St Peter Claver College. This is something we embrace and celebrate. We are privileged to enjoy a harmonious relationship between students from all cultural backgrounds. To support this, our College has a number of staff dedicated to promoting culture and identity.
Intercultural understanding is developed through the curriculum and through inclusion of culturally rich experiences. The College provides a broad range of art, cultural and sporting opportunities. Cultural Dance is offered and incorporated as an important aspect of College life. The mission of the College provides a framework for social justice, service and outreach experiences.
We are committed to helping students discover their spark, discover their strengths and discover their spirit.
