As part of our Lenten journey we are raising awareness of the works of Caritas Australia. Through Project Compassion millions of Australians come together in solidarity with the world's poor to help end poverty, promote justice and uphold dignity. Throughout this term, under the leadership of our Faith & Service and Values Captains, we are learning about the work of Caritas and raising funds to help support them. Each class has a Project Compassion Box for donations to be placed. We thank you for your support and generosity.
Six of our Student Leaders, together with Trish and parent volunteer attended the St Patrick’s Day Mass for schools at the Cathedral in the city. It was a fantastic day where students from Catholic Primary and Secondary schools all came together for a Eucharistic Celebration. Our students did themselves and our school proud.
Our students have made a video, narrated by two of our student leaders, Harry and Paula – who have thought hard about what they feel proud of about our school and what they want people to know about us!! We are very proud of our school, our students and staff and feel privileged to be a part of an amazing community. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about our school.

Ss Peter & Paul’s is a SunSmart School. We encourage you to apply sunscreen to your child during Summer. The hat is a part of our uniform and is compulsory for outdoor wear during the Summer months.
Overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation causes skin and eye damage, ultimately leading to skin cancer.
UV cannot be seen or felt. It is not like the sun’s light which we see, or the sun’s warmth (infrared radiation) which we feel. Our senses cannot detect UV so it can be damaging without us knowing. There is a huge variation in UV levels across Australia. The UV level is affected by a number of factors including the time of day, time of year, cloud cover, altitude, proximity to the equator, scattering and reflection.
A UV Index reading of 6 to 7 means a high risk of harm from unprotected sun exposure. Protection against skin and eye damage is needed. Reduce time in the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. If outdoors, seek shade and wear protective clothing, a wide-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses. While your child may not wish to wear sunglasses at school, a hat is a part of our Summer school uniform and must be worn outdoors throughout Summer.
For more information about being SunSmart, the following resources are very informative.
