Our House Teams
At St Peters Primary School we take pride in giving our children the opportunity to become leaders. One of the ways we do this is through our House Captain system.
Every year, year 6 students are given the opportunity to be elected as a house captain for our house teams. Our house teams are: Martin Luther King, St Teresa, St Luke, St Paul. Throughout the school year, children earn points for their houses for good behaviour, special accomplishments, and more. The house captain system gives students the opportunity to connect with students across classes that they may not normally have a chance to interact with. This helps students gain more friendships and create a family-like culture at our school.
