St Peter’s Woodlands in partnership with the St Peter’s Woodlands Old Scholars’ Association warmly invite you to celebrate the rich history of 39 Partridge Street, Glenelg – the beautiful grounds which has been the home of education, imagination and wonder for children over the past 100 years. Woodlands CEGGS 1923-1998 and St Peter’s Woodlands 1999-2023.
Across the year, St Peter’s Woodlands will host events to celebrate the schools that have inhabited the grounds and provided students with a nurturing environment in which to grow, learn and form important life-long friendships. We welcome you to join us in honouring our schools.
Celebrating 100 Years Events and Activities – Save the Date!
Throughout the year we will be celebrating 100 years in many ways. We hope you will join us and take the opportunity to reconnect with the school grounds, classmates and revisit those treasured memories from your school days.

Be a Part of History
The very walls of the school hold an abundance of rich history and memories, and we continue to honour this and look for ways to pass these stories on to upcoming generations of students. We would love to hear those treasured moments of your schooling years that go beyond those told in yearbooks or school records. Take this year of celebration as an opportunity to reflect and share these precious stories with us. Please click the link below to have your stories included in our history.
Stay in Touch
As we come together to reconnect across the year, we ask you to ensure your contact details are up-to-date. More importantly, spread the word about this year’s celebration and encourage those friends who didn’t receive any communication from us to update their details. We strive to bring all our old scholars back to reunite with each other and this relies on word-of-mouth to keep our database as current as possible.
