Our School

St Peter's Primary School Bentleigh East

Established in 1903 under the guidance of the Presentation Sisters, St Peter’s is a co-educational primary school located in Bentleigh East housed in 150 years of rich history. 

 

We believe that Catholic school communities are most effective when parents and teachers work together to educate children with a holistic approach - academically, emotionally, socially, physically and spiritually.

 

Parents are always welcome to participate in classroom literacy and numeracy activities, excursions, inter-school sport and Sacramental programs.

 

There are also many opportunities to be involved outside of the classroom as part of the School Advisory Council and the Parents & Friends Association. 

 

At St Peter’s Primary School we are proud to offer exceptional educational facilities and a variety of learning spaces, including:

  • Technology Discovery Centre (TDC)

  • Japanese Room

  • Visual Art Room

  • Performing Arts stage

  • Spaces for instrumental programs

  • Large multipurpose hall

  • Intervention room (for both enabling and extending our learners)

  • Synthetic sports ground, soccer goals, running track and long jump pit

  • Two adventure playgrounds

  • Well stocked and up to date library

  • Outdoor spaces for our Gardening Program

  • Shaded spaces for imaginative play 

  • Recently upgraded senior building
