It was a busy week for the boys at St Peter’s. The Grade 6s enjoyed their FLP week and learnt about some of the history of this country and about values, which are also an important aspect of life at St Peter’s Boys Prep.
The Big Question:
“Values were at the core of impacting South Africa’s journey from struggle to liberation, to transformation. How might your values impact your life and that of those around you to bring positive change?”
Well done and congratulations to Caitlin Crow who was presented with the revered White Blazer at the 2015 Academic Prize-Giving ceremony on 26 January 2016.

Our teachers do not only teach our students but also direct them ‘bravely into the future’. Attaining 100% pass rate with 97% university entrance is testament to our academic excellence.
It has been interesting watching the boys develop their organisational skills this week. The variable nature of the activities enabled boys to focus on their interests for the most part. The boys were actively involved in researching, assimilation of information and the culmination of a set goal.
It has been an interesting week for the Boys School, with the Flexible Learning Programme (FLP) producing much hard work and also a lot of enjoyment.
This week, at St Peter’s Boys Prep, we are immersed in the Flexible Learning Programme (FLP). The first FLP week was introduced earlier this year when parents could not get their children to school due to the Witkoppen roadworks. This round is however taking place at school, but includes all the aspects of a self-managed, interest driven programme that were identified as being valuable in the feedback received from last term.
On Thursday, 9 July 2015, the St Peter’s Grade 6 Boys were visited by the Junior Engineers for Africa (JEFA). JEFA holds workshops to give the boys a basic introduction to technology, communication and engineering principles such as: structures, wheels and axles, levers, pulleys and gears using LEGO.
