It was a beautiful day and the weather was perfect for a fun filled morning of cricket. The Grade 1s and their dads played in the first round of matches and thoroughly enjoyed their first taste of ‘competitive sport’. It was evident to see the excitement and nerves amongst not only the boys, but the dads as well, as they demonstrated their cricketing skills/abilities whilst being cheered on from the side by moms, grandparents, brothers and sisters. There were some eagerly contested matches and the boys and their dads seemed to really enjoy the experience.

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.
