St Simon Peter Primary

St Simon Peter Catholic Primary School was established by the Archbishop of Perth to continue the Mission of Jesus Christ. The mission is fulfilled by bringing the Good News to all humanity and through its influence, transforming humanity. This school assists parents whose desire it is to educate their children in the Christian tradition. Staff work with parents in the formation of Christian values and conscience.

This work is part of the broader mission of the Church.

The task of the school is fundamentally a synthesis of culture and faith, a synthesis of faith and life. The first is reached by integrating all the different aspects of human knowledge through the subjects taught in the light of the gospel, the second is the growth of the virtues characteristic of the Christian. – The Catholic School

Pope John Paul II spoke clearly about the purpose of Catholic schools.

The Catholic school is a witness to the truth that genuine education seeks to do more than simply impart knowledge or train people to perform economically productive tasks. All education worthy of the name seeks to bring forth as it were a full person, a person in whom moral excellence is no less developed than are the theoretical and productive abilities.

Policies and practices at St Simon Peter School are based on this view of schooling. Parents and staff work together to ensure that each child grows spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically.
Children in Pre- Kindergarten to Year 6 are offered a comprehensive and stimulating curriculum. Children are encouraged to become confident and independent lifelong learners, committed to the pursuit of Christian truth and excellence.

Heavenly Father,
you have chosen our parish as the place by which you encounter us in our daily lives.
Here your Word is proclaimed,the Eucharist is celebrated,
and your people are united in a family of believers.
We pray for our parish named in honour of St Simon Peter and placed under his patronage.
Through his intercession may every blessing be poured out on all members of our parish.
We pray for our schools, their staff and students, and all their families.
May our parish be filled with holiness and prayer, with faith and love;
May it be a place where worthy and reverent worship is offered to God,
and where we receive grace and power for our mission.
May all who come here find a welcoming home,
comfort in their needs and strength for their journey of faith.
We make this prayer through Christ, Our Lord.
