Our History - Built on a Rock

St Peter's was founded in 1936 with the stated aim of educating the whole person.

Our founder, Mr Arthur Broadhurst, was convinced that holistic development of body, mind and spirit laid the foundation for a life of service, ready leadership and clear thinking. We have not wavered from our founding ethos. Today St Peter’s still strives to develop well-rounded people with strength of character, a positive mindset, and eagerness to serve their communities. 

From the beginning our school motto has been “structa saxo”, built on a rock. It comes from the words Jesus said to Simon Peter “You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church” (Matthew 16:18). At St Peter’s we aim to give all our students a solid foundation for life, education in body, mind and spirit, so that they can enter life after St Peter’s with confidence in themselves and their values.
