St Peter's Prep Schools: The Difference ... Part 6

As we introduced changes to our teaching methodology, we began to notice improvements in the ways the boys and girls learned.  However, we were not satisfied.  Many of us felt that children had the ability to learn far more quickly than was usually the case at school.  We began to look at the question of motivation.  What was it that held the attention of some children so completely that they were oblivious to all around them, even to offers of food?

CHOICE OF HIGH SCHOOL

Girls Prep Boys Prep  March 07, 2016 | Academics | Social and emotional | Cara Eggett and Dave Hala (Directors of Pastoral Care)

Choice of high school has the potential to create much anxiety for parents. This becomes evident in the Grade 6 year where parents are making the final decisions and girls and boys attend interviews at the schools of their choice. In some cases parents place unnecessary pressure on their children and set unrealistic goals during this time. The Grade 6 year is comparable to the Grade 11 year in high school, where pupils are under pressure to perform in the classroom in order to be accepted at the university of their choice.

Bishop Steve Moreo presided over the ceremony as Darrel was ‘installed’ into his rightful place in the Chapel. Bishop Steve blessed the Webb family and asked for God’s guidance and wisdom for Darrel in his role as leader of the school. Present at the service were members of Darrel’s family, Heads from various nearby schools, members of the St Peter’s Council and PA, St Peter’s staff and girls from Grade 3 – 7.

THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE SPORTS DEPARTMENT

Girls Prep  February 08, 2016 | Physical education | Sport | Liz Ashmore (Director of Sport)

We have a mantra in the Sports Department which we often ask the girls to repeat: ‘Do YOUR best!’ This motto speaks to our philosophy of ensuring that every girl becomes the very best version of herself possible.

From Grade 0 to Grade 7, our focus in every sport is very much ‘skills based’, as we are acutely aware that we are not only preparing girls for the more rigorous sporting demands in high school. We are also trying to engender a love and a passion for sport to guarantee that all the girls continue participating for as long as they are able, well into adulthood.
