In Week 8 Year 4 boys of the Junior School visited St Peter’s Cathedral as part of the Religious and Values Education program. Complementing their learning on Places of Worship, the boys were able to see first-hand the timeless architecture of the Cathedral and the sacred objects that were housed within including the detailed stained-glass windows, ornate Baptismal Font and stunning High Altar. Volunteer guides were able to share their knowledge and historical background of the Cathedral – which is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year.
The boys were interested to hear about the direct connections between St Peter’s Cathedral and St Peter’s College, noticing that the pulpits in the Cathedral and our School Chapel are almost exactly the same. The students finished the visit with recess in the gardens across from the Cathedral, or the ‘Cathedral End’ of Adelaide Oval.
