Contributing to Saints
Saints has benefited from a long and distinguished history of philanthropy and it remains an important part of the School today. There are many ways in which you can support the School through the St Peter’s College Foundation. The Foundation actively raises funds from current and former parents, old scholars and other members of the community.
Donations help to provide the outstanding environment in which the boys learn and provides scholarships for promising and capable boys for whom an education at Saints would otherwise be out of reach.
The Rex J Lipman Fellows Program
Through the Rex J Lipman Fellows Program, innovative speakers and thinkers visit the School to inspire boys and give a free public lecture to the wider community. It encapsulates our vision and mission for Saints to develop educated, considerate and outward-looking young men who will act responsibly for the good of the wider community.
School Community Groups
St Peter’s College is blessed with active and involved parent and community groups who promote friendships, foster a sense of community and raise funds for School and charity projects.
Friends of Saints (Junior and Senior)
Junior School Friends of Saints (JSFoS) and Senior School Friends of Saints (SSFoS) organise and run events throughout the School year aimed at promoting and fostering a sense of community among parents and families, and providing financial support for a number of special projects.
Each term families come together to socialise in a friendly atmosphere at events including breakfasts, quiz nights, cocktail evenings, and bottle and plate nights.
Friends of Music
Friends of Music comprises of parents of boys involved in the music program across the School. The committee supports, encourages and promotes music within the School and wider community.
The cabaret evening, the major fundraiser for the committee, is a popular annual event. Funds raised are used for instruments, equipment or to benefit music students.
Friends of the Chapel
Formed in 1984, Friends of the Chapel have a common interest in the School and the history of the Chapel.
A service is held each term and the group works to maintain the beauty of the building.
Mission Guild was established in 1923 and raises money for Anglican charities. Over the past ten years, they have donated more than $300,000.
The guild raises funds through a variety of activities including the Mother’s Day Morning Tea, the annual Bridge Day and running the Used Uniform Shop.
