Pastoral care
House system                                                   Senior School Houses
Upon commencement at St Peter’s College every student
is allocated a House, each of which is led and guided by
the Head of House. Houses are the fundamental units in the
pastoral care system at the School. Each student is part of
a House, to which he can give his loyalty and from which he
can receive guidance and encouragement.

In Years 7 and 8 (Middle Years) students are part of Mentor
classes with other students from their year level. In Years
9 to 12 (Senior Years) students are organised into smaller
groups, known as Mentor groups, under the care of a
House Mentor. Our House system promotes the social,
academic, spiritual and emotional wellbeing of each student.
The House system provides many opportunities for               Farr House             School & Allen House
students to participate in annual traditions and community
activities enhancing a sense of belonging and camaraderie.
Friendships formed by the students during House activities
often last a lifetime.

Senior School Information and Co-curricular Handbook 9

         Boarding
         Up to 100 boarders call the School home for
         38 weeks of the year.
         They are supported by qualified and dedicated boarding
         staff who provide the necessary support for the students in
         their care.
         The boarding staff supervise students during out-of-
         school hours and provide pastoral and academic support.
         Senior boarding staff are teachers at the School and are in
         constant communication with the boarders’ mentors and
         class teachers to ensure they are accessing the necessary
         support.
         We recognise that all students are unique and respond
         to the challenges of living away from home in different
         ways. Led by our Director of Boarding, International and
         Indigenous Programs, our staffing structure ensures
         students always have someone to speak to while also
         encouraging students to develop independence.
         The health and wellbeing of our boarders is our primary
         concern, and we encourage students and parents to make
         contact should any concerns arise.
         A significant amount of thought and planning is put into
         the staffing of our Boarding House. This is to ensure all
         students are well supervised and are able to access a
         staff member for any questions or concerns they may
         have. There is always a minimum of two live-in staff on
         duty who are directly accessible by students. Furthermore,
         during supervised study periods we have dedicated
         learning support assistance and additional tutoring staff
         are accessible to provide flexibility in offering small group
         and one-on-one academic assistance when required.
         Out of hours, the boarding students are provided with a
         comprehensive and engaging program. Emphasis is placed
         on partnering exciting activities with a meaningful ‘life skill’
         curriculum and to develop meaningful relationships and
         independence.
         Each night a staff member resides in a dedicated overnight
         room, so that students have a single location to go to during
         the night should they need support or feel unwell.
         The Director of Boarding, International and Indigenous
         Programs and Heads of House also live on School grounds
         in close proximity to the Boarding House and are accessible
         to students whenever they are needed.

          Sport
          Sport and co-curricular activities are integral to the
          educational experience at St Peter’s College.
          We provide exceptional facilities, coaches and programs
          to support the students in developing their knowledge,
          skills and abilities necessary for a successful life.
          We provide programs for every student. The relationships
          developed through our comprehensive program are
          helpful in promoting enjoyment, learning and community.
          The School participates in interschool matches each
          week while interstate and overseas trips enhance the
          calendar. Our programs have enabled talented students
          to be selected at state, national and international levels.
          Traditional Intercol competitions between St Peter’s
          College and Prince Alfred College are also held for
          summer and winter sports at the culmination of each
          season.
