What a start to 2020! It feels as if we have been at school for a month or two already. On walking around the campus in the afternoons, there is a palpable sense of excitement amongst our students and coaches.
This year is about making an impact. Staff, coaches, students and parents are encouraged to make a positive impact on all aspects of life at St Peter’s College.
The 2020 Inter-house Gala started on a high, with each house being led into tWahoo, the venue of the day, with a chorus of war cries that echoed back overlapping each other. Soon thereafter the races began. As soon as the first people had dived into the pool, the stands erupted into a mixture of war cries and cheers for individual swimmers.
On Saturday, 18 January and Sunday, 19 January 2020, St Peter’s College got invited to the prestigious St Benedict’s Tennis Festival. The schools that got invited were St John’s, Selborne, St Stithians, Westville, Cornwall Hill, KES, HTS Middelburg and Clifton. The Top 5 boys got invited to play at this festival. Matthew Harris, Adriano Costa, Keagan Rousseau, Alex Kristov and Bailey Rousseau stepped on the St Benedict’s courts with confidence.

The new multi-purpose surface, on Brecknock Field, was put to good use from the start of 2018. How wonderful to have the extra tennis courts on which to play. Tennis match afternoons are now far more time efficient as more matches can be played, in a shorter time.
