Old Boys News
The school’s enforced period of closure - and the extraordinary circumstances that have brought this about - brings a great sense of sadness, uncertainty, and concern for us all. St Peter’s College, however, is an incredibly optimistic place. Despite this being a very trying time, it has also been one full of hope. The students have been a marvel - cheery, positive and wonderfully kind to one another, albeit online. The whole St Peter’s College community has also really rallied round, and I want to thank every single parent who has taken the time to say a kind word, or send a short email of thanks to our staff during this period.
After several Cataflams and Voltaren shots to the lower back, I have managed to recover somewhat to reflect on the Old Boys cricket event last Saturday.
Following on from last year’s successful Old Boys game against the Goblins, this year we hosted another mighty cricket clash between the Old Boys of two highly regarded prep schools - ST PETER’S vs THE RIDGE. The two matches were played in buoyant spirit with both young and old - a number of festive “20 Somethings” bringing lots of banter and great fun. One game was certainly played in a more competitive spirit whilst the “mixed ability” game enjoyed more humour and liquid refreshments.
