Our School

​St Peter Chanel Catholic School commenced in 1972 with the decision to establish this progressive parish school in safe and pleasant natural surroundings.  Over time, not only has St Peter Chanel School offered its special quality of education to the thousands of children from The Gap and surrounding areas, it has contributed greatly to the fabric of the local community.

At St Peter Chanel School, we believe that the education of your child is a precious responsibility and is to be an extension of love, care and learning provided in the family home.
