The Peter’s School Foundation was established in 2000 and is a Registered Charitable Trust with the aim of providing opportunities for people to support St Peter’s through donations, sponsorships, bequests and other forms of planned gifts. The Foundation is reliant on the generosity of alumni, parents, staff and friends of the school to achieve its mission.
St Peter’s is founded on philanthropy, and its success stems from its close ties to the community. Arthur Broadhurst personally offered numerous scholarships to allow boys from the district to attend St Peter’s. And in 1939 he generously gifted the school to the St Peter’s Trust Board, affording generations of future students the opportunity to experience a world-class education in New Zealand.
The Foundation exists to ensure that St Peter’s will always remain an independent school to support and enhance the advancement of education at St Peter’s. The Foundation aims to further develop and strengthen the school’s position as an educational leader and enhance the school’s programmes and facilities in the academic, arts, cultural and sporting fields.
The control, management and conduct of the affairs of our Foundation are vested in the Foundation Board of Management. The Foundation Board of Management meets formally every quarter to review overall progress on the goals of the Foundation. The Director of Advancement, Chief Operating Officer and Director of Finance attend the Foundation Board meetings.
