Principal's message

The peace of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you always.

My dear parents, teachers and students, at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic School, we educate, train and equip for the future. Students come from many faith traditions and ethnic backgrounds. We have been working on educating students and parents to embrace a culture of discipline based on respect for God, self, country, and family. The best of education can only be accomplished by developing and nurturing a mature Christian.

The school firmly believes that faith in Jesus Christ and in His “Good News” is basic to the understanding of life, its purpose and meaning. Therefore, the school pays particular attention to religious education, thus encouraging students to know God better and love Him more through religious instruction, the frequent reception of the sacraments, days of prayer, service projects, and the challenge of living every day in the presence of God.

At the core of this philosophy, the school emphasizes the importance of creating a family-like atmosphere rooted in kindness and cheerfulness. To this end, educators strive to build a personalized rapport with the students, which consists of friendliness and affirmation, while at the same time, carefully providing structures that promote self-discipline. The professional and supportive staff seeks to enter the students’ world and understand their values. The educators are not merely content with imparting knowledge to their students; they seek to help their students recognize their inner worth and dignity as children of God and to develop their own unique gifts and skills. In this way, students are enabled to know and understand themselves better and are empowered to creatively build a better world. They are formed to meet the challenges of College, postgraduate learning, industry, family business, married life or, for some, the possibility of a call by God to a special vocation.

All these demand a rock solid foundation and a sure moral compass pointing at God and eternity. This is critical because it means as much for the individual student as it does for the society as a whole; and therefore it requires much of those in whose charge the education and training of God’s children have been placed.
