Catholic Ethos and Identity

The values and traditions of the Sisters of Mercy, the founders of the School, have continued to be embedded into the everyday life of the school. The Catholic Ethos and Identity of our school is supported and developed by integrating Mercy Values into all areas of school life, fostering spirituality and promoting a close partnership with the Parish.

Our Vision

TO LEARN with excellence in a Catholic School where everyone grows, collaborates and feels valued. We provide a positive, happy and safe learning environment that enables students to fulfil their potential.

TO LEAD by example to inspire others through faith, respect, responsibility and resilience.

TO LOVE with Jesus in our heart in a welcoming and inclusive Catholic community that promotes the Mercy Values of Respect, Integrity, Justice, Compassion and Service.


Ss Peter & Paul’s School was established in 1986 following the amalgamation of two separate Catholic Primary Schools in Goulburn. The Sisters of Mercy and the Christian Brothers have had a long standing association with Ss Peter & Paul’s Primary School. Although they are no longer a part of the staff, their values and traditions are still upheld by the school.
