St Peter's College is a world-class anglican boys school situated in Adelaide, South Australia.
St Peter's College remains uncompromising in our commitment to be at the forefront of boys’ education. We aspire to be a truly world class school where each boy flourishes.
At Saints, in addition to academia, our focus is the character shaping of boys and young men – developing a sense of service, courage, commitment, integrity, morality and honour. In today’s world we must ensure that each and every boy has these underpinning values in order for them to make their way successfully in a changing world.
The School is an Anglican day and boarding school for boys catering for students from Early Learning Centre to Year 12.
Set on beautiful grounds on the edge of the city, Annesley Junior School is a caringcommunity where every child is cherished for their individuality. What families most love about Annesley is that it's a school where children can genuinely feel at home, and where values are lived out everyday.
Annesley Junior School caters for boys and girls from two years of age to Year 6. Annesley children engage in a rigorous program with a focus on leadership, serviceand community sustainability. We offer flexibility as to when your child commences in our Early Learning Centre and we have multiple intakes into our Reception classes, recognising that children are ready to start school at different times. Children are also welcome to join us in other year levels.
At Annesley, our children enjoy an expansive outdoor space with lushgreen lawns inwhich to learn and play, and their inside learning environment was purpose-built for young children. Our school is mid-fee and is open 49 weeks of the year. The Early Learning Centre, Before and After School and Vacation Care programs are accredited, enabling families to access the child-care benefit and rebate for these services.
Annesley has ten core values, which form the basis of how our teachers and students interact: resilience, responsibility, humility, civility, justice, compassion, respect, gratitude courage and integrity. When our Annesley children grow and enter the wider world these values serve them well, allowing them to appreciate the differences – religious, cultural or otherwise – of those they encounter, and to flourish as true global citizens. Annesley’s values are implicitly and explicitly taught through role modelling, trans-disciplinary units, discussion, questioning and guided reflection.
Our children benefit from the rich history of a distinguished educational institution founded by the Uniting Church in 1902. Community events are held in what is the historic heart of the school, Gillingham Hall, a grand structure built in the 1920s. Here a sense of tradition is most tangible. The school is a ten-minute walk from the CBD or a three-minute walk to the tram stop, which many parents working in the city find very helpful. Annesley’s close proximity to the tramline also means classes frequently travel into the city for excursions to extend their learning.
Annesley Junior School is a vibrant place of learning. Our students are well prepared to be active, responsible and ethical citizens of our global world.

Our Lady of The Visitation, Taperoo, became a centre for Mass and a school for children of the area in 1953. The Dominican Sisters came from Semaphore to conduct the first classes. Faithful to the wishes of their founder, the Sisters were "... to study and teach the truths of Christ and awaken in all the love and understanding that are a response to these truths." The School Motto, "VERITAS" (Truth), enshrines this ideal and provides the basic inspiration for the staff and the pupils.
The very large block of approximately 8 1/3 acres probably seemed an outrageous investment back then, but with the South Australian Housing Trust and private builders erecting homes in the area, a State high and primary school and a possible school at North Haven, everything indicated the area would grow. The wisdom displayed in purchasing such a large block is appreciated by all at Our Lady of The Visitation today.
The Taperoo Parish is part of the Lefevre Catholic Community under the pastoral leadership of Fr. Brian Angus.
The Parish is actively involved in the school community and shares school facilities. Class Masses organised by the school are a valued part of Parish life.

Our school was built on a foundation of dreams, determination and prayers. The words ‘Strength’ and ‘Kindness’ boldly adorn the foyer and these words encapture not only the vision of our founding Priests and Nuns but all of those who are part of our school community.
The story of St Pius X School is steeped in the tradition of the Brigidine Sisters.
The Brigidine Sisters were founded in Ireland in 1807 for the purpose of providing a Catholic education to children. They were women of faith and hope, strong yet gentle in their love, in close union with Jesus Christ and in communion with all God’s people.
In the 1960s, Fr JP McCann approached religious orders of Sisters to take charge of a primary school being built in Adelaide. Mother Pius, the Provincial of the Brigidine Order in Melbourne, accepted this challenge with great strength and kindness. A community of sisters moved to South Australia for the sole purpose of opening a Catholic primary school in Windsor Gardens.
On March 4th 1962 St Pius X Primary School was officially opened with 200 students from Kindergarten to Year Four.
At Temple Christian College we aim to be an extension of the home, providing a community environment that allows the founding purpose of the School to be maintained, this is - to allow students to pursue excellence for the Glory of God.
Temple Christian College has been established under the Oversight of a Local Church, Adelaide Christian Centre, a CRC (CRC Churches International) church based at 27 Sturt Street, Adelaide
Temple Christian College is called to:
What is a Jesuit School? It is one based on Christian Humanism, which sees the growth of all the humane as important, and which knows that ‘the glory of God is man and woman fully alive’.
Hence we have always emphasised the development of ‘the whole person’ mind, heart, body, will; the intellectual and the affective, the spiritual and the physical, the imagination and the sense of critique. Our ideal is to see our students as unique and gifted, no matter the range. In traditional Jesuit terms, they are to be treated with ‘cura personalis’, individual care, ‘like the several instruments of an orchestra, each with its own timbre and quality’, so that each may play the part in the world that only he or she can fulfil, the role they are called to play in the Mind of God.
Our ideal graduates are to be ‘young men and women of competence, conscience and compassion’, with an attitude of excellence and service, knowing that they are called to be ‘men and women for others’. In the words of Ignatius, our young people are called ‘to praise, to revere and to serve’, and they are to do this by developing their talents, the potential within them. Their search should be to find God in the world, and in their hearts and minds, as they grow through life in their love of Christ and their neighbour. They should grow as young people able to use their judgement, to discern the direction of the paths into which they tend, whether such paths lead to greater love and truth or to hate and evil in the world. And they are to be young people of great heart, ‘fully alive’, and of great generosity: ‘Lord, teach me to be generous’ towards God and towards neighbour, was Ignatius’ own prayer.
