Principal's Message

The Claver community prides itself on its modern approach to excellence in co-educational learning and teaching; focused on the inherent value of each student and the explicit development of authentic and respectful relationships focused on knowing our students and walking with them as they strive to reach their personal capabilities.

We are a proud Catholic educational community, blessed to have at our core the spiritual and pedagogical ethos of two saints: St Peter Claver and St Marcellin Champagnat. It is because of this joint ethos that St Peter Claver College places an emphasis on quality learning and teaching which caters to all learners regardless of background, race, gender or socio-economic status.
