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!

DATA PROTECTION FOR SCHOOLS WORKSHOP

Schools process more sensitive personal data than most other kinds of organisations. With data on parents, teachers, and students, in particular, schools should be focusing their attention on complying with modern data protection laws, like the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) in South Africa. Failing to do so could cause serious harm, to the school or its various stakeholders.

St Peter's College Easter message from the College Chaplain

College  April 17, 2019 | Spiritual | St Peter's College Easter message from the College Chaplain

The season of Easter is upon us yet again dear Friends and as a Christian School we continue to reflect on the words of Christ, when He spoke to his disciples before his death on the Cross when He said “Do this in remembrance of me” – Luke 22:19. It is through these few words that made the disciples realise that the time of death that Jesus was talking, is indeed here and that the hour has come.
