To top that off we had South African Soccer Legends: Mark Tovey, Doctor Khumalo, Andre Arendse, Shaun Bartlett and Stanton Lewis joining in the afternoon of fun!

St Peter's Transformation Message from the Rector

Girls Prep Boys Prep Parents' Association  June 13, 2016 | Social and emotional | Greg Royce - Rector

The spectre of racism, which arose so powerfully at the end of last year, constitutes a disheartening reminder of how little progress we have made in uniting as a nation since 1994.

I often think that as South Africans, one of our most limiting characteristics is that we do not know how to listen.  We listen to respond rather than to understand.  This is why, for me, the Parent Transformation Meeting held a few weeks ago was so important.  It provided the first real opportunity for people, with different life experiences, to listen respectfully to each other.
