From the Cultural Office
Our ability to express ourselves finds its vehicle in the cultural sphere of our lives and fortunately, St Peter’s College understands and promotes the importance of developing the whole child. By now you would have noticed the beehive of activity in and around our stunning MADD Centre. What a great place to bee, haha!
This year is about making an impact. Everyone at St Peter’s College, be it staff, coaches, students or parents are encouraged to explore their creative and cultural selves. Come make a positive impact on all aspects of life! As Mr Short, our Head of Sport, says: Making an impact is about doing the following in your own way:
- Smiling as you go about your business.
- Being present and not distracted.
- Looking people in the eye.
- Making an effort to get to know people.
- Removing earphones/electronic devices and instead, connecting with fellow staff, students, coaches, and parents.
- Listening carefully without commenting and interrupting.
- Showing kindness.
This is equally true for our culture vultures. I echo Mr Short’s challenge: Everyone in St Peter’s family is challenged to #makeanimpact in their own way!
In our 22nd anniversary year, St Peter’s College is proudly hosting our not just one, but two Dance competitions in Term One; anticipating a glorious musical rendition of THE LITTLE MERMAID during Term Two and then gearing up for our immense Sport and Cultural Festival on 10 to 13th September. Just three highlights to pencil in your diary.
Yet as the TV advert says BUT WAIT, THERE IS MORE. Our music department has already had a showcase event and in the first week of February, our students can dance to their hearts' delight at the Dance Showcase. In between auditions and rehearsals, we are also preparing for our first Open Day of the year on Saturday, 7 March. If you write, sing, debate or design, there is a place for you in our cultural programme.
The Co-curricular office looks forward to a busy, rewarding term and encourages all at St Peter’s College to make a positive impact, in your own way!
