St Simon Peter School holds a significant place in the lives of Catholic families living in Ocean Reef and the surrounding suburbs. Established in 1988, Sr Breda O’Reilly was the first principal and Fr Simon Carson the first Parish Priest.
The name St Simon Peter was chosen after consultation with the original parishioners in March 1987. Being a coastal area, the Parish Council looked to have a church and school named after one the great fishermen of the early Church, St Peter. The name Simon was added to the title to distinguish this parish and school from other St Peter parishes and schools.
St Simon Peter School opened in January 1988 in response to the demand from Catholic families in the fast-growing northern coastal suburbs. It began as a two stream co-educational parish primary school, catering for children from Pre-primary to Year 7. However, large enrolments in the early years meant that the school had to expand and it is currently a three stream school.
