At St Peter Claver College ensuring the well-being of our students is of the utmost importance to us. We know that no two students are the same and that they all have their own personalities and individual needs. That is why we have a caring and committed team of Pastoral Care Leaders who are dedicated to ensuring all students feel supported, connected and included.

Our Assistant Principal Pastoral Care leads a team of six Pastoral Care Leaders (one for each year level) who are an advocate for their students in issues around behaviour and wellbeing.

St Peter Claver College is a welcoming and inclusive community founded on the values highlighted in our College motto – Concern, Love and Justice.

Train:  The Dinmore train station is located a short 12 minute walk from the College.

Bus:  Our College buses are operated by Logan Coaches. Students use their Student IDs in a similar fashion to Translink go cards – students tap their card upon entry and exit of their bus. Bus passes are sold as Annual or Term Passes.  For more information about our buses, including current timetables and prices, please visit our website Bus Information (

If you have any questions about the College bus service, please phone (07) 3810 5902 or email

"Whatever your future holds … Know you can."

We know our students can and will achieve great things.

Through St Peter Claver College's tailored academic programs, broad curriculum, individualised learning and our motivational approach we want to ensure our students are prepared for their future. Whatever that might be.

We understand that one of your greatest concerns as a parent is how you are going to prepare your child for a fulfilling and successful future. The opportunities ahead of our students are endless and we prepare them with the skills and attitudes for success knowing that many jobs not even created yet.

We place value on high quality education and provide academic programs that cater to all learner types. We also offer a broad range of sporting and cultural co-curricular activities, and Identity and Mission Outreach opportunities. We actively encouraged students to work hard, engage in College life, get involved in social justice programs and pursue their co-curricular passions.

This holistic approach to learning is important as it offers students a well-rounded education, strengthens resilience, fosters self-confidence and social-awareness, and provides a greater understanding of spirituality and faith in a safe and inclusive environment.

Our professional and dedicated team of teachers, coaches, mentors and staff will be here every day as educators and supporters of your child. We will celebrate their gifts and talents and help pick them back up should they fall. We will help them reach their goals and become the best possible versions of themselves.

It's our strong sense of community that sets St Peter Claver College apart from other schools. A welcoming community of Concern, Love and Justice, hope, inspiration, and acceptance of everyone and their individual differences.

Our College is a place for students to learn, achieve, grow and foster their passions. I am proud to lead such an incredible community and I look forward to welcoming you to the Claver family.

"Know you can follow your passions. Know you can be part of a welcoming community. Know you can be you and know you can do it all at Claver."
