The regional heat of the annual Kids Lit Quiz took place on Monday, 12 February 2018. The Kids Lit Quiz is an international competition, focusing on building a love of literature and reading amongst its participants. Students really look forward to this event, and challenge themselves to read widely from various genres and authors, in preparation for this fun and exciting day.
The JP Boys Book Week was based on the fascinating story of “The Wizard of Oz”. The aim was to align our week with the ‘Year of the Woman’ at St Peter’s.
The White Blazer is the highest achievement at St Peter’s College. It is awarded in recognition of achieving Full Colours in Sport, Cultural and Academic and completion of the St Peter’s College Community Service requirements.
Well done to Jamie Edwards and Teagan Leroni who were presented with their White Blazers at the 2016 Academic Prize-Giving ceremony on 31 January 2017.
There was excitement as the 2017 school year began at St Peter’s Girls Prep School on Wednesday, 18 January. New classes, new teachers, new stationery, books and many other new things to learn. There was great anticipation as the girls arrived at school and greeted friends and staff.

This past week, St Peter’s Boys Prep held its second Flexible Learning Programme (FLP) of the year. The boys had great fun, as did the teachers and so much was learnt in this very special week.
St Peter’s girls have been offered nine Open Academic scholarships, five Cultural Scholarships (four for Music and one for Drama) and one Sports Scholarships to respected South African high schools. All of these, bar one closed scholarship to St Peter’s College, are open scholarships and accessible to pupils from all schools. We are exceptionally proud of the girls’ achievement. In most cases, these girls wrote a Maths and English scholarship exam and participated in an interview. Many school heads commended the girls on their positive attitude, diligent work ethic and individual charm and manners.
We thank all our girls who uphold the values of St Peter’s every day and contribute in a huge way to our reputation and standing in the school community. Thank you to the exceptional, industrious staff who guide all our girls in their learning and celebrate their various successes with them.
To our scholarship recipients of 2016 - may you enjoy this celebratory time with your family and friends.
