Mrs Michelle Peters
Year 7 - 12


Year 7 Entry

For commencement of high school in Year 7 in 2018, an Open Afternoon is being held on Monday 14th March 2017. Families are invited to attend information sessions followed by a tour of the extensive and beautiful College campus.  Pre-printed Enrolment Application packs are provided.

Information sessions will commence as follows: 4:00pm, 4:30pm, 5:00pm, 5:30pm and 6:00pm. Bookings are not required.

Year 11 Entry

Applications are encouraged early in Year 10.  This allows subject selections to be taken into account. Support is available from the St Peter's Careers Co-ordinator if required for subject selection best suited to meet the goals of each student. 

For students who submit Enrolment Applications later in the year, it may result in limitations on their preferred subject selections.

Entry to Other Years

Limited places may become available during the year for entry to Years 8, 9 and 10. Therefore, enrolment enquiries are welcome for these year groups.  Whilst the process is the same as for Year 7 entry, the timescales are far shorter.


Principal's Message

Principal's Image


I am proud to be the Principal of St Peter’s Catholic College, Tuggerah where we nurture young men and women to achieve and serve our community.

Mrs Michelle Peters

By visiting our website you will be able to discover more about us, about our aims, curriculum, co-curricula activities,  facilities and our environment.

We are a dynamic and committed co-educational Catholic community of over 1200 people. There are over 1000 students and more than 100 staff members at St Peter's.

We are located in Tuggerah in a beautiful natural setting of 16 hectares of native gums, natural wetlands and vast open spaces. Although close to Tuggerah railway station, Westfield shopping centre and the residential community of Tuggerah and Mardi we retain a ‘country serenity’ with our beautiful campus.

While we exist to give students a well-rounded education in accordance with the requirements of the Board of Studies our specific aims are:

  • To educate and form young people in Catholic discipleship: offering the experiences of following Jesus as members of the Catholic community.
  • To have a pastoral concern for all where the dignity of each individual is paramount. To inspire our students to ‘Live the Faith’, by having a deep concern for social issues within their own community and indeed in the broader local, national and global communities in which they find themselves.
  • To ‘Live the Faith’ through our chosen core values of Courage, Compassion and Commitment that form the basis for our relationships and our achievements.
  • To inspire our students to live healthy lifestyles and become well-adjusted resilient young men and women who are able and motivated to make a positive difference to our world.
  • To encourage our students to embrace the world of technology and use it to advance their knowledge and skills.

Faith formation

St Peter's educates and develops its young people in Catholic discipleship: offering the experiences of following Jesus as members of the Catholic community. This is supported by a Chapel and links to the local Parish communities.


At St Peters's students are encouraged to live healthy lifestyles and become well-adjusted resilient young men and women who are able and motivated to make a positive difference to our world. This is achieved by encouraging engagement in an extensive range of learning experiences through the religious, academic, sporting, artistic and cultural activities on offer.


Transport Options

St Peter's is easily accessed from across the NSW Central Coast being located close to Tuggerah Railway Station with quick and easy access to suburbs on the Sydney train line. We are also extensively serviced across the Central Coast by both Red Bus and Busways. 



A scholarship of $1,000 is offered each year by the Women's Catholic League for both a Year 11 and Year 12 student.  In Term 3, Year 10 students will be offered the opportunity to apply for the scholarship.

Feature Story

St Peter's student wins NSW VET Student of the Year (Central Coast Region)


Jayden Woodards in Year 12 was nominated by St Peter's for the NSW VET Student of the Year awards (Central Coast Region) and he actually won! He will have a presentation at Erina on 20 January and will then move onto State Level. This is for both Hospitality and Entertainment. He is a very committed student who has entered both World Skills and Battle of the Chefs for Hospitality and undertakes Specialisation for Entertainment. He has sourced his own work placements, one of which was in Bowral and he also does work placement for Entertainment in his own time in the holidays. 

Despite being an accomplished Hospitality student, Jayden's real love is the Entertainment Industry (in particular Film Production). He would have liked to have also done Hospitality Specialisation, but was taking on just a little too much! He has been working at a Tuggerah restaurant for a month or two and is already being left in charge. He has a very mature approach to his work and it takes a lot to ruffle his feathers (we managed to ruffle them a little with Battle of the Chefs!!!).

St Peter's wish Jayden all the very best and that hopefully he will follow in the footsteps of past St Peter's VET students like Alissa Franov, Claire Bodle and Brendan Pearce who represented the Central Coast at the NSW level and in the case of Brendan, came 2nd in Darwin at the Australian level.
