It was a beautiful day and the weather was perfect for a fun filled morning of cricket. The Grade 1s and their dads played in the first round of matches and thoroughly enjoyed their first taste of ‘competitive sport’. It was evident to see the excitement and nerves amongst not only the boys, but the dads as well, as they demonstrated their cricketing skills/abilities whilst being cheered on from the side by moms, grandparents, brothers and sisters. There were some eagerly contested matches and the boys and their dads seemed to really enjoy the experience.

Girls Prep Boys Prep  March 04, 2019 | Social and emotional | Heather Kissack: Girls JP Head

‘A new world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing’

– Arundhati Roy.

In order to support our own health and that of our children, we invited Ela Manga to talk St Peter’s Prep staff and parents about a way of managing our stress and that of our children. As she says: Dysfunctional breathing habits develop over time due to chronic stress, poor posture or past trauma. These unconscious habits, in turn, exacerbate the stress response and push tension even deeper into the body.

Incorporating the I.C.E programme at St Peter’s allows boys to be exposed to new experiences and possible hobbies that they might never have considered.
