St Peter’s College hosted the 12th annual Old Petrian’s water polo tournament from 19 February – 21 February 2016 for open girls. twenty eight schools across the country and one from Zimbabwe participated in the prestigious event at the Wahoo Aquatics centre and St Peter’s Girls Prep’s pool. Water polo is a highly competitive sport, and it was pleasing to see so many schools encouraging their girls to excel in the game. The support for the game is growing and incredible talent was on display at the tournament.

Raw determination lights in the eyes of players, tension radiates as the penalty shot just misses and the crowds roar with untamed excitement as the final basket secures the win. Emotion stings the air and everyone is simply alive with spirit. A hearty, warm welcome to the heart of our St Peter’s College Sports and Cultural Festival!
The sports field is an extension of the classroom in that, as educators, our job is not to produce Springbok rugby players, but to prepare our pupils for the challenges that lie ahead in a rapidly changing global environment. The sports field is merely one facet of that education process.
