The St. Peter’s ROCK Award

ROCK Award logo

New in September 2017 the St. Peter’s ROCK Award is designed to reward those values that have always been a part of St. Peter’s for as long as the school existed. The award is very simple; we wish to recognise and reward the vast majority of our students who uphold the St. Peter’s values year after year. To do so we have put our values into 4 key categories: Respect, Optimism, Community and Kindness or ROCK. This reflects the Catholic teachings of sacrifice and service as well as tying into the excellence that St. Peter’s regularly shows in areas such as music and sport.
