St Peters has a proud boarding tradition, beginning as a co-educational boarding college in 1945. When the College first opened, there were just 56 founding boarding students—today, that figure has grown significantly. St Peters is currently a home-away-from-home to over 150 boarders. These students from rural and regional Queensland, interstate towns and cities, and overseas. As Head of College, Tim Kotzur, states, "Our boarders are a true reflection of the society we live in". Their diversity is the essence of real life.

Since 1945
