2016 Whole School Improvement Plan
St Peter’s Anglican College provides families of the Eurobodalla Shire with an independent, Anglican, low fee and co‐educational school on a 25 acre site near Broulee Beach. The College is holistically orientated, but importantly, central to the College’s vision and values statements is the focus on the attainment of goals specific to individual and personal best. The College aims to provide an education that is relevant for the present whilst preparing them to become successful, contributing members of their community.
