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.
St Peter’s Prep Schools held a civvies day today and collected still water for charity as payment for wearing civvies. Hundreds of bottles were donated and were collected this morning by H2O 4 Hooves and Heels.
With the start of the new 2016 academic year we welcome Darrel Webb as the new Headmaster of the Girls School.
The Junior Prep camp out took place in the third term of 2015. This was the first joint camp out with both the Boys Junior Prep and Girls Junior Prep families attending so it meant that both fields were full of tents and people.There was added excitement around the event as South Africa played a crucial game in the Rugby World Cup against Scotland.
St Peter’s School Foundation organised a Business Breakfast, on Thursday, 10 September - to mark the departure of the Springbok Team for the Rugby World Cup in England.
The event was hosted by Darren Scott and the breakfast team from Hot 91.9FM and was broadcast live from the Royce Hall.
Excitement filled the air, in the new St Peter’s Girls JP School, this morning - the 8 September. The Grade 0, 1 and 2 girls returned to school, for the Advent Term of 2015, to a beautiful, newly completed girls JP facility on the St Peter’s campus.
The Grade 3s and 4s entertained their parents and families, with a presentation of singing, poetry, choreographed movement and a beautiful Art display, on Friday, 31 July. The arrangement was themed ‘Celebration of Family’ and the girls impressed the audience with their renditions of songs and poetry around this subject.
This week was observed as Mandela Week. The theme was: ‘It is not about us and them, but all of us’.
The St Peter’s boys and girls responded, in true St Peter’s style, to the Community Partnership’s call for clothing, shoes, blankets, etc. for those in need. The Boys and Girls Junior Prep pupils decorated a skip with beautiful artwork that depicts the hands of hope which was used to collect the donated clothing. By this morning the skip was overflowing.
