On Wednesday, 25 July, the St Peter’s Girls JP community brought 67 minutes of happiness and many more hours of fun and reading to the children of Sefikeng School.  Over 450 packs consisting of a book, ball and biscuits were sponsored by the very generous girls and their families.  This means that every child from Grade 0 - 7 received an age-appropriate book to take home.  On the morning, many of the parents and girls then went to the school and interacted with the children.

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.

Last year we introduced the ‘Keys Camp’, as part of our new Leadership Programme at St Peter’s Girls Prep.  The camp is scheduled to take place early in the year, in order to allow the Grade 7s an opportunity to create strong bonds amongst themselves and their teachers. This is also a time in which to set out clear expectations for the final year of prep school and prepare the girls for high school.

SHROVE TUESDAY AND ASH WEDNESDAY

Girls Prep Boys Prep  February 13, 2018 | Social and emotional | Spiritual | Fr Richard Wossler

The countdown to Shrove Tuesday, or pancake Tuesday as most of us know it, has ended and this signals the beginning of the journey towards Easter. I’m still recovering from Christmas and trying to implement all those New Year’s resolutions I decided on. I’m not ready for Easter, but I have to be because time zooms on.

THE BRECKNOCK MULTI-PURPOSE SURFACE

Girls Prep  February 13, 2018 | Physical education | Sport | Jean Macleod

The new multi-purpose surface, on Brecknock Field, was put to good use from the start of 2018. How wonderful to have the extra tennis courts on which to play. Tennis match afternoons are now far more time efficient as more matches can be played, in a shorter time.
