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.

I have recently enjoyed reading a book by Tony Wagner and Ted Dintersmith entitled “Most Likely to Succeed – Preparing our Kids for the Innovation Era.” The authors of the book, one from the education field and the other a leading venture capitalist, are calling for a revamp of the American education system. They argue that, as was shared by Greg Royce at the beginning of this year, traditional schooling was engineered more than a century ago to produce a workforce for a world and economy that no longer exists.
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.
Raw determination lights in the eyes of players, tension radiates as the penalty shot just misses and the crowds roar with untamed excitement as the final basket secures the win. Emotion stings the air and everyone is simply alive with spirit. A hearty, warm welcome to the heart of our St Peter’s College Sports and Cultural Festival!
