All Saints' College, St Peter's Campus, Maitland, has a long and proud history of educating children in the Catholic tradition dating back to 1838.
St Peter's Campus is the Year 7-10 campus of All Saints' College, a co-educational College serving the needs of the Greater Maitland community. St Peter's is dedicated to the development of the whole person within a structured and nurturing community. Students are regularly challenged on what it means to live out the Gospel values and are involved in social justice and service learning activities to help inform and develop their Christian conscience.
The Pastoral Care model developed at St Peter's endeavours to equip students with the skills to respond to the numerous and complex challenges confronting young people and society in an ever-changing world. The school community seeks to provide students with every opportunity to develop themselves physically, socially, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. All students participate in community days that teach proactive skills including getting along, organisation, persistence and confidence, all underpinned by emotional resilience. Where a need for specific assistance is identified, St Peter's Campus offers the services of pastoral care workers, parent support workers, school counsellors, pastoral and learning support coordinators and a careers advisor.
Individual learning programs are arranged to suit the specific needs of students with the approach to behaviour management at St Peter's Campus based on the principles of restorative justice. The College seeks to help students learn from their mistakes and to reconcile and resolve problems with others, with students regularly reminded of their responsibilities and rights embodied in the student code of conduct. Students are also made aware of the support structures and people available to assist them if they feel that their rights have not been respected in the school community.
St Peter's Campus is a committed learning environment where unified visions, values and objectives are shared, and where all members of the school community are actively engaged in learning together from each other. Staff are genuinely and actively engaged in the Professional Learning Community model and have a diverse range of expertise, knowledge and experience. The campus promotes a culture of academic excellence and consistently achieves creditable results in regional, state and national levels in science and engineering challenges, Tournament of Minds, debating, eisteddfods, writing competitions, music and drama.
