Service Programme

‘The St Peter’s Man is a Man of Service’

As part of our motto: ‘To Love and to Serve’ , all St Peter’s students are required to complete service work as part of their life at the College. Service work is defined as any unpaid work that is not for relatives. Students are involved in many and various forms of service both at St Peter’s and in the wider Auckland Community.

Some common forms of service work include:

  • Volunteer work in Parishes and Churches, such as Altar Serving, Working Bees and Hospitality
  • Coaching and/or managing of junior sports teams
  • Environmental service such as the SPC programme ‘Trees for Survival’
  • Volunteer work at community events, such as the Real Women’s Duathlon at Ambury Park in February and May each year
  • Assistance at the College Fair in Term One each year
  • School-based service groups, such as the ‘Young Vinnies’
