Description

In the former St Peter's Anglican Church, there are two stone wall-mounted memorial plaques dedicated to servicemen from the First World War.  They are mounted above door height on the eastern end of the church on the southern aisle.

St Peter's Church was built in 1867.  It was deconsecrated in 1992 due to declining parish numbers and the parish amalgamated with St John's, Darlinghurst.  In 1993, SCEGGS Darlinghurst purchased the church and converted it into the school's Great Hall.
