Creating an inspiring social and emotional learning environment where boys thrive.

February 3rd, 2013 | by webadmin

At St Peter’s College we know that to build character in our boys is as important as extending their intellect. We believe it is essential that boys understand their wellbeing, and that of others; in the same way they read books, study mathematics, play in an orchestra or kick a football. Your son will learn the skills of resilience to remain optimistic in the face of adversity; understand how to use their strengths of character and coping mechanisms to apply to his daily life.
