Parents who have undergone the process of applying for places in senior schools will be able to testify to the willingness that many schools display in accepting St Peter’s pupils. Our Mission Statement includes the undertaking to prepare children for senior school and life beyond. 

What follows below is the first part of an article I have written.  It explains the thought and research devoted to the creation of the St Peter’s curriculum and teaching methodology.  We’re dishing it up in small portions to make it easier to read.

St Peter's Prep seeks guidance from three medical experts in its response to Covid-19 on campus

The appearance of the Covid-19 virus in South Africa produced a deluge of news:  articles, opinions and statistics.  Anxiety gripped society which seemed obsessed with the worst predictions, serving only to heighten fear.  We quickly realised that dealing with the panic would be likely to be more taxing than dealing with the effect of the virus itself at School.

Looking back at our final weekend of school before the holidays, albeit the strangest one we have had to date, we managed to have lots of fun.

We were meant to have our Hotdog Day, which no child wants to ever miss at St Peter’s, as well as a camp out on the school fields. The St Peter’s Families decided that something like ‘Lockdown’ was not doing to deter us from making these events happen, we would all just need to be a little more creative.

ST PETER’S GIRLS PREP GOES TO THE POLLS!

Girls Prep  May 10, 2019 | Academics | Social and emotional | Pam van Gass

As part of an FLP activity and with the national elections in mind - the Grade 6 and 7 girls arranged elections to take place at school. The various groups established parties and manifestos. The groups/parties were given a choice of challenges to research, from the ten global sustainable goals. The girls needed to research and promote solutions on a national, community and individual scale.  Each party presented their findings to the ‘voters’ (i.e. the rest of the Girls Senior Prep) together with their names, slogans and party colours. The canvasing for votes even included a little bribery!
