On Tuesday evening 12 September, the Foundation hosted My Father’s Coat as a fundraiser for the Isematholeni Intern programme. The St Peter’s community gathered at St Peter’s College MADDitorium to listen to Michael Charton, founder of Inherit South Africa in Cape Town, tell a story.
This story, although heard many times, was unlike other stories about our country’s history - in the way it was told.
Congratulations to two Grade 12 students: Erin Lyle and Liam Ramsden, who were awarded their White Blazers at the end of Term 1 2017. The White Blazer is the highest achievement at the College and is awarded to students who attain full colours in Academic, Cultural, Sport and completing their community hours. They join the other two White Blazers which were awarded to Jamie Edwards and Teagan Leroni in January 2017. All four students are also prefects at St Peter’s College, we are extremely proud of their awards in recognition of their hard work and dedication to St Peter’s College.
The JP Boys Book Week was based on the fascinating story of “The Wizard of Oz”. The aim was to align our week with the ‘Year of the Woman’ at St Peter’s.
Welcome to our 2017 interns!
2016 saw 15 interns registered with UNISA in various years of study.
The White Blazer is the highest achievement at St Peter’s College. It is awarded in recognition of achieving Full Colours in Sport, Cultural and Academic and completion of the St Peter’s College Community Service requirements.
Well done to Jamie Edwards and Teagan Leroni who were presented with their White Blazers at the 2016 Academic Prize-Giving ceremony on 31 January 2017.
There was excitement as the 2017 school year began at St Peter’s Girls Prep School on Wednesday, 18 January. New classes, new teachers, new stationery, books and many other new things to learn. There was great anticipation as the girls arrived at school and greeted friends and staff.
