St Peter’s Catholic College were delighted to celebrate and thank all involved in design, development, construction and completion of the Library Precinct. These $8m facilities have ensured St Peter’s is ideally placed to provide the best possible teaching and learning for our students. The formal Opening Ceremony and Blessing were attended by the Very Reverend Dr David Ranson, Diocesan Administrator, Diocese Broken Bay, Senator Jim Molan AO, DSC, Senator for New South Wales and Peter Hamill, Director of Schools, Catholic Schools Office. The extensive facilities were designed by Sydney architects, Stanton Dahl and delivered by Gosford construction firm, Artel.
Also in attendance were ex-students of St Peter’s Catholic College, Emma McBride MP, Member for Dobell and Scott Lester, Project Managing the development for Artel. They took the opportunity to engage with students from St Peter’s who explained the direct benefits to them of the new facilities.
The new facilities include a state of the art Library and Learning Centre, extensive outdoor precinct and new Theatre space seating over 300 students in University lecture style.
These wonderful new facilities with state of the art design assist with teaching and learning under the St Peter’s Learning Framework. This recognises that the wellbeing of learners is paramount to their success. Wellbeing and learning are inextricably linked. Learners who are successful, happy, healthy and productive, enjoy high levels of wellbeing. This positive wellbeing promotes success and generates high levels of resilience and learner commitment. The Learning Framework reflects this strong connection.
St Peter’s learners are aspirational, and above all, responsible for their learning. They strive to build positive relationships which are trusting, respectful and authentic. They understand that their success as learners is founded on positive attitudes, strength of character and a commitment to achieving their best. St Peter’s learners celebrate their personal success and encourage the success of those around them who also strive for excellence. Our community believes that an emphasis on learning, without a commensurate focus on wellbeing, diminishes the potential of all learners to be successful and fulfilled individuals, now and in to the future.
