The Peninsula School is an independent school in association with the Anglican Church of Australia. As such, we are committed to Christian values and we encourage our students to explore the spiritual dimensions to their lives and to follow Christian ethics, whilst respecting the beliefs of those from other faiths.
A person’s spiritual development is considered to be as important as their physical, emotional, social and intellectual development. All students from Prep to Year 10 undertake Living and Faith as part of the curriculum, while in Years 11 and 12 the VCE course is optional.
Living and Faith is designed to enable students to think for themselves about the big questions of life, such as Why am I here? Is there a purpose to life? How am I going to live my life? It is a broad curriculum of study that aims to incorporate physical, emotional, social and spiritual dimensions to aid students in developing a holistic perspective on wellbeing.
As they progress through the School, students are given opportunity to examine and respond to the claims of the Christian Faith and so develop their own spiritual understanding. Students attend assemblies and Chapel services. In addition, students may choose to attend the weekly Communion service.
The School acknowledges the cultural and religious diversity of contemporary Australian life. Students are encouraged to understand the religious views of others in order to develop tolerance and appreciation of beliefs different from their own.
The School Chaplains
The School has two Anglican chaplains, who are also fully qualified teachers. They are available to all members of the School community for baptism and confirmation preparation, weddings and funerals. They work in close co-operation with the local Anglican Parish in Mount Eliza, and with its congregation that meets in the Chapel of the Resurrection each Sunday at 10am.
Parents wishing to view the School are invited to contact our Admissions Office, who welcome enquiries at any time and will be happy to arrange personal tours for families. Telephone (03) 9788 7753 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
