St Peter’s Girls Prep Music Department held its popular Musical Showcase recently. This was a magical evening for the performers and audience alike, as they shared the love of music, which embodies the spirit in this department of the School.

The Musical Showcase is a platform where the pupils have the opportunity to perform and thereby show off the musical skills that they have learnt through the year. They are encouraged to be creative and independent - the girls made the most of this occasion. The focus of the Showcase was on composition and arrangement.

THE JUNIOR PREP’S ‘DAY OF EXPLORATION’

Girls Prep  April 09, 2018 | Academics | Heather Kissack

The St Peter’s JP Department held a ‘Day of Exploration’ on Thursday, 29 March.

This awareness that play matters, is not new. However, with the increasing pressure on schools to educate for a growing technological and ever-changing world, as well as the need to develop 21st Century skills, the concept of play has been seen as a luxury that children don’t have time for. Play’s positive contribution to learning is not a new realisation, but at St Peter’s we have become increasingly aware of the impact of play on learning.
