Head Boy

Kosmas Joannou

I could call St Peter’s College by many titles but the one most fitting would be home. I have spent the last four years at the College, and I wouldn’t change that for anything.  

St Peter’s College is a very modern school which is commended for creating nothing less than individuals. St Peter’s College is more than just a school, it is a family. Whether be it on the sports field, drama/dance studio or in the classroom every induvial comes together to create an environment where everyone no matter how diverse is included and cared for. St Peter’s College prides itself on individuality and diversity and this is crucial to the core values of the college. Each student throughout their high school career has the opportunity to grow from new experiences, learn from a variety of people and activities and become the best possible versions of themselves.

I am extremely proud and honoured to not only be a part of the College but to be able to lead it as Head Boy. The school offers 16 sports and 16 cultural activities. The College prides itself on a variety of cultural activities and this is due to the help of our MADD (Music, Art, Drama, Dance) Studio. The cultural activities range from Orchestra to Cricket scoring. The College also offers a variety of sports that keep the students active and involved. These various cultural and sporting activities allow the students to express themselves in their own unique way.

Granted the College offers a large variety of cultural and sporting activities, but this does not influence the academics of the College, in fact, it enhances the student’s thought process to achieve results they never knew possible because and an active mind is a healthy mind. St Peters college does not only pride itself on a 100% pass rate but also produces multiple distinctions and academic improvements.

I have largely benefitted from the opportunities offered to me at the College ranging from First team Water polo to A+ results in oratory. During my career at the College, I have been on a path of growing, learning and broadening my horizons. I had been assisted on this path by my Cypriot family and my St Peters family, whether it be my peers or my teachers which I consider my mentors.

While at the College I have had the privilege to go on countless amounts of Water Polo tours and to represent my province. I have competed in the SACEE debating league and earned an A+ grade in public speaking. I was involved in a variety of other activities such as chess, swimming, first aid, rugby and The St Petrian just to name a few. I was also very fortunate to lead the Grade 11 House Build Project and raise money with corporates to build houses for people who are less fortunate than ourselves.

I have been fortunate to achieve a variety of achievements at the college but the two that I am the proudest of are: My appointment as Head Boy and my White Blazer Achievement. Both of which were goals of mine when I first arrived in Grade 8 which shows that the College allowed me to reach my full potential and nothing less. Likewise, all students are encouraged and thrive to reach their full potential in their own unique way.

The College prides itself in its four core aspects: Respect, Relationships, Responsibility, and Resilience. All four of these values are instilled in the everyday life at the College and I personally have learned a great deal from these core values and intend to use them in the future. Just the school motto mentions - In Futurum Fortiter (Bravely into the future).

As Head Boy, I am honoured to wear the St Peter’s Badge every single day. I am beyond fortunate to go to a school where there are beautiful grounds and facilities, compassionate and respectful staff, loving peers and countless opportunities. The college is only 21 years of age and it is already creating wonders and magic, and there is so much more yet to come.

St Peter’s College offers a very warm welcome to anyone looking to uphold the core values of being a St Petrian. I look forward to the ever-expanding St Peter’s Family. We would like to extend our hand out to you to offer you the experience of a lifetime. I look forward to seeing you around.
