    St Simon Peter Catholic Primary School is a triple-stream, Catholic co-educational school catering for students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year Six.  At St Simon Peter we strive to allow for each and every individual to reach their full potential based on our motto of 'Love One Another'.  The school operates a Special Education Centre with a dedicated team of specialist teachers and trained assistants.  The Centre is available to families in the region for children with special needs and in particular, children with a high level of need.  The school has a Gifted and Talented Program for academically able children, an extensive music tuition program and a strong interest in the performing arts.  Intervention programs have a strong emphasis in the school.  There are two support teachers, a network of Education Assistants working in the classrooms and a Reading Recovery program (2 trained teachers working with children in Year 1/2) who are experiencing difficulty in the literacy area.  An Ignite Program is in its third year. This operates one day per week for a small number of children who have become disengaged with school. Pastoral Care is also a strong feature of the school with small-group work carried out by school counsellors in self-esteem, anxiety, social skills and other programs available.

    An Early Learning Centre operates with a focus on early intervention and provides Long Day care for 2 and 3 year olds and a 3 year kindy program operating five days a week with a trained teacher.  The school offers Before and After School Day Care, as well as Vacation Care for school age students that operates in the school grounds all year round.  Our Health Services operate out of the ELC with part time Occupational Therapist, Speech Pathologist, Literacy/Dyslexia Tutor and Physiotherapist, School Nurse and Social Worker.  The school currently has a Strategic Plan (2020-2021) that operates under CEWA strategic directions which are Catholic Identity, Education, Community and Stewardship.
