 A dignified and moving ceremony was held in the school Chapel on Friday, 12 February 2016, to mark the start of Darrel Webb’s career as Headmaster of St Peter’s Girls School.

Bishop Steve Moreo presided over the ceremony as Darrel was ‘installed’ into his rightful place in the Chapel. Bishop Steve blessed the Webb family and asked for God’s guidance and wisdom for Darrel in his role as leader of the school. Present at the service were members of Darrel’s family, Heads from various nearby schools, members of the St Peter’s Council and PA, St Peter’s staff and girls from Grade 3 – 7.

Earlier, on Friday morning, the Girls Junior Prep held a special ‘prayer service’ in honour of Darrel. The Chaplain, Fr Richard Wossler, joined the service and led the prayers.

The installation ceremony in the Chapel included a Eucharist and the Blessing of the school house flags by Bishop Steve. During the service Trish Attlee, former Head of the Girls School, presented Darrel with a St Peter’s Old Boys tie – which is tradition at an event of this nature.

The installation service was followed by a celebration in the Royce Hall. A wonderful occasion which formally begins a new and exciting chapter in the life of St Peter’s Girls School. Congratulations Darrel!
