St. Peter's foundation

Since St. Peter’s School opened in 1936, it has been supported by the generosity of its community.

 The St. Peter’s Foundation Board, established in 2000, is the school’s philanthropic and fundraising body. It exists to foster and grow giving that supports the current and future priorities of the school through the provision of new and improved educational and learning opportunities. Working with school and our community means the Foundation can make a difference to the lives of current and future students and families.

Our objectives

Since its inception, the Foundation Board, through the generosity of many, has contributed to a wide range of projects and initiatives, including the Brock Pool, Robb Sports Centre, restoration of the Chapel pipe organ, and scholarships.
