Our ability to express ourselves finds its vehicle in the cultural sphere of our lives and fortunately, St Peter’s College understands and promotes the importance of developing the whole child.

DATA PROTECTION FOR SCHOOLS WORKSHOP
Schools process more sensitive personal data than most other kinds of organisations. With data on parents, teachers, and students, in particular, schools should be focusing their attention on complying with modern data protection laws, like the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) in South Africa. Failing to do so could cause serious harm, to the school or its various stakeholders.
The season of Easter is upon us yet again dear Friends and as a Christian School we continue to reflect on the words of Christ, when He spoke to his disciples before his death on the Cross when He said “Do this in remembrance of me” – Luke 22:19. It is through these few words that made the disciples realise that the time of death that Jesus was talking, is indeed here and that the hour has come.
Last year the school sent out the textbook lists for the next year as usual in September. But, I had several books which I would not be using in future and did not want to have to dump them in my dusty pile of old textbooks, I had accumulated over the years.

In our extra-mural programme, these factors play a vital role as it provides a deeper meaning and understanding as well as creates respect for this art form. We believe collaboration is key in developing a holistic student.
