School Spirit




Recited at school parade from the 1980s, although it’s not sure when this ended it was printed in the school Prospectus in 1994


This is our school.

Let peace dwell here.

Let the rooms be full of contentment.

Let love abide here.

Love of one another.

Love of mankind.

Love of life itself.

And, Love of God.

Let us remember that

As many hands build a house

So many hearts make a school.

Read More About the Uniform


We talk to students frequently about being proud to belong to Petrie. We see this in things like the way students wear their school uniform. This is something that is done very well here. I’m pleased to say that we rarely see students out of uniform. I would like to thank parents for their support with this. This week our school photos were taken. It was great to see the care taken by students in their appearance, and the wearing of correct school uniform.
