CELEBRATING EXCELLENCE

Recognising Learner Growth and Excellence

We enhance our learners’ positive wellbeing and self-belief by motivating them to reach their full potential through an extensive range of opportunities. We continuously recognise and celebrate learner growth and excellence through College Assemblies, Evenings, College media and news.

Achievement of excellence and success is personal and in our inclusive learning environment we understand there are many measures of success as students move through their education and into their careers and pathways.

POSITIVE REFERRAL PROGRAM

The St Peter’s Positive Referral Program fosters learner growth and the celebration of excellence. The Program is designed to build students’ positive regard for self and their community through demonstrating our College values and the pursuit of excellence in five domains: academic, community, cultural, sporting and commitment to the College and wider community. The Positive Referral Program provides progressive growth through seven levels of acknowledgment from Commendations and a range of Awards to a highly regarded St Peter’s Student of Distinction Award. Recipients are regularly acknowledged at various Assemblies, Evenings and College media.
