The VIVA SA All Schools Games is the premier athletics carnival for students aged 12 or older with over 110 schools competing for best overall school across the state.

On Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 October, St Peter’s College had 31 athletes compete across 76 events earning a total of 10 gold, 10 silver and 3 bronze. The students earned a total of 411 points and won the overall boys division over St Michael’s (316 points) and Trinity College (259 points). Furthermore, the School won the Under 18 and Under 16 boys divisions.
