About St Peter and Pauls Primacy School
Sts Peter and Paul Primary School began in 1968. The school is situated in Wisdom Street, Garran, in the Parish of the Transfiguration in the Woden Valley. Sts Peter and Paul is a vibrant Catholic coeducational school. It is a place that is constantly adapting to the changing needs of young people and their world. It is a place where all children can discover who they are and develop the self-confidence to take on new challenges in a caring and nurturing Catholic environment.
St Peter and Pauls Primary School is part of The Catholic Education Office of the Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn. St Peter and Pauls and Catholic schools seek to contribute to the creation of an Australian community that is highly educated, skilled and cultured with an ability to promote and embrace a critical analysis of social issues, the expansion of knowledge and the pursuit of truth.

Equally with their commitment to academic results and positive psychology, Sts Peter & Paul has demonstrated clear commitment to the Social and Emotional Learning of their students. We were impressed with how proactive and engage the school staff was and their diligence and commitment their pastoral care provides to the students.
