Welcome to St Peter’s Girls Prep School
My first contact with St Peter’s was as a young teacher accompanying sports teams. The boys (in those days, only the Boys School existed) always seemed so much happier and more spontaneous and confident than those at the other schools I knew.
Coming from a far less well-endowed school, I was in awe of the magnificent grounds and facilities, yet the staff members were unfailingly welcoming, always treating one as an equal. There was a unique atmosphere of warm informality and professionalism.Read more
I feel very privileged to be the second Head of St Peter’s Girls Prep School. My association with the school started in 2006, as a parent, when my daughter joined the school as one of the founding pupils. My son also joined the St Peter’s family a few years later.
St Peter’s Girls Prep has a very definite purpose, which is based on the foundation of the Anglican Church and our explicit teaching of responsibility, resilience, collaboration, compassion, respect and honour. We strive to teach our girls the skills required to not only cope, but thrive in high school as well as in life after school. Our focus is divided into three main areas: character development, skills for life and core academic skills.Read more
It is a joy and privilege to be back at St Peter's as the acting Head of the Junior Prep. I have been associated with the school in various capacities for over 30 years and have a deep love for everything St Peter's stands for.
St Peter's is founded upon strong Christian values. We advocate a growth mind-set and a resilient spirit. Our diverse school community assist in developing a deep understanding and a genuine care and concern for people who are different to themselves. Our curriculum has been developed to prepare our girls for life in an ever-changing world. It equips them with competencies that go beyond the traditional classroom and grows innovative and creative thinking, problem solving, collaborative and relevant learning, which will hold our girls in good stead for the future.Read more
Latest News from St Peter’s Girls Prep School
Mandela Day is an annual international day in honour of Nelson Mandela, celebrated each year on 18 July, Mandela’s birthday. People are encouraged to take 67 minutes of their day to fight for social justice. This year, on 22 July, our St Peters Prep Community, which included our parents, children, teachers, interns and maintenance staff, decided to embark on a project to upgrade our outreach school, Sefikeng Primary School. Our community volunteered 2 hours of their time and donated money and goods that were needed for this project. Some of our projects included painting fences and jungle gyms, cleaning classrooms and classroom equipment, gardening and creating a welcoming staffroom.
Madiba’s spirit was alive on Saturday, when over 250 St Peter’s families and staff joined their Sefikeng counterparts to give their 67 minutes.
The overwhelming sense of community that prevailed was palpable - passion, care and enthusiasm abounded.
