St Peter’s College 20th Anniversary celebrations were held on Saturday, 16 June. It was a very special event and it gave us the opportunity to reflect and celebrate what we have achieved over the past 20 years. This celebration provided us the opportunity to welcome back to the College many of our former founding members, parents, and alumni, as well as, providing them a chance to meet each other, former teachers and other staff members. It also enabled them to notice the changes & developments in the college campus over the past 20 years.
On Tuesday evening 12 September, the Foundation hosted My Father’s Coat as a fundraiser for the Isematholeni Intern programme. The St Peter’s community gathered at St Peter’s College MADDitorium to listen to Michael Charton, founder of Inherit South Africa in Cape Town, tell a story.
This story, although heard many times, was unlike other stories about our country’s history - in the way it was told.
The 14th annual St Peter’s College Sports and Cultural Festival is happening from Friday to Sunday, 15-17 September 2017. We look forward to welcoming over 3,000 students from 45 different schools to this hugely vibrant and fun event that we all look forward to every year.
Not only are there sports (Basketball, Chess, Netball, Soccer), but also Musical events, Pavement Art, Public Speaking and Debating, Drama and Photography competitions as well as workshops for debating adjudicators and choir leaders. Our entrepreneurial Grade 9s will be running their own businesses for two days at the Festival and will have lots of novelties on sale such as T-shirts, caps and beanies, jewellery, cell phone covers, bath bombs etc.
SEE YOU THERE!
