We understand that deciding which school is best for your child is complex. No two children are the same - each has his or her own character, likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses. At Prince of Peace we embrace each other’s differences to provide a warm and welcoming environment for students and their families.
When you are considering which school is the best fit for your child, here are some of the reasons you should consider Prince of Peace:
Creating lifelong learners
Learning is our central purpose; we set high expectations and have a deep belief that all students can fulfil their potential.
Our students are the centre of all learning, and we take them on a journey where they are engaged in a varied curriculum with relevant experiences and diverse tools that cater for individual learning styles.
Our learning programs from Kindergarten to Year 12 aim to develop and open minds. We believe strongly in a ‘growth mindset’, where potential – like a muscle – is something that can be trained and developed.
Our Year 12 graduates have also achieved great success. Eighty-eight per cent of the 2015 Year 12 class was OP eligible, well above the Queensland average. Of the OP-eligible students, 26 per cent received an OP 1-5 and 67 per cent received an OP 10 or better. All of the OP-eligible students in the 2015 graduating class received an OP 18 or better.
Your child will be well understood, well cared for, safe, secure and supported. We believe the bedrock of a successful and enjoyable school career is to ensure the children within our care are supported in ways relevant to their needs and that suit them.
The concept of honouring relationships is central to our pastoral care program. From Kindergarten, we encourage our students to understand that building good relationships with their fellow students and the staff creates a happy school community. This is lived out daily through the application of the Four Rs –Respect, Relationships, Responsibility and Restoration.
Our Middle School program (Years 7 to 9) has been designed to support social, emotional and spiritual development throughout the challenging adolescent years, to ensure students are prepared for the rigours of senior schooling in Years 10-12.
A supportive community
When a child joins Prince of Peace we do more than enrol a student – we enrol a family. We commit to walking alongside each individual on his or her learning journey, and to work with students and parent to nurture student potential. We provide open communication and opportunities to develop connections with staff and other parents.
We believe lifelong learning is nurtured and inspired by powerful partnerships between teachers, students, parents and the community, and we encourage parents to play an active role in their children’s education.
Building confidence and belonging
A successful graduate is nurtured not just in the classroom, but also out on the sports field, in the music room, when providing service to others, and away from school at camps. Co-curricular activities and our outdoor education program provide lessons in teamwork, determination and tenacity, along with opportunities to make friends and create lifelong memories.
We provide a range of co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities, to further engage students in their school journey and help them discover their passions outside the classroom. Students can participate in sports, music (including singing, instrumental music and musicals), community service groups, and student-led clubs and activities.
We value and respect each other
For over 30 years, we have continued to develop an exceptional learning environment that provides our students with the best possible education and sends them into tomorrow as confident, committed and compassionate community members. Our diverse learning community flourishes inside and outside of school grounds.
Values of acceptance, respect and inclusion are our primary focus and cultural and religious differences are welcomed and celebrated. Every student has the ability to explore his or her faith in a Christian environment.
Nurturing God-given potential
Our teachers have in-depth knowledge of their teaching areas and a wide understanding of the students in their care. They know their students’ learning styles, interests, family environments and what makes them tick. They encourage students to accept responsibility for their own learning and teach them how to become lifelong learners, setting them on the path for success after school has finished.
Our grounds and facilities
We are proud of our well-equipped facilities, green environment and ample space for play and sport. Located in the northern suburbs of Brisbane, our landscaping and buildings make the most of the rolling topography to provide two distinct campuses, tucked away from public view and the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Our Senior Campus, now in its sixth year, continues to expand its facilities with growth in student numbers.
