Dear Greg and Rob

I must congratulate you and your staff for the space that St Peter’s Boys Prep is currently in. It has been a good 14 years since my time at the Prep ended and the physical changes and additions are too long and impressive to list.

St Peter's Prep Schools - The Seven Signs That Show God’s Presence

Girls Prep Boys Prep  November 10, 2016 | Spiritual | Father Richard: Chaplain

Often when asked, “Where do you go to school?” we simply answer, “St Peter’s”. So most people would think, “Oh, a private school” but is it only that? No, St Peter’s is proud to say we are a Christian school which also really does not tell the whole story because we are a church school and part of the Anglican Diocese.

St Peter's Boys Prep Teachers - I Salute You

Boys Prep  October 06, 2016 | Headmaster | Rob Macaulay - Headmaster

I am writing this article on the morning of World Teachers’ Day: 5 October.  It is interesting to reflect on how the role of the teacher has changed in our modern world. Traditionally, the teacher has been the imparter of knowledge and skills aimed at preparing the child for a place in an industrialised workplace. Numeracy and literacy were combined with general knowledge and scientific skills to become the basket of goods delivered by the teacher.

St Peter's Old Boys Cricket Match

Boys Prep Old Boys  October 06, 2016 | David Wilson - Chairman of the Old Boys

After several Cataflams and Voltaren shots to the lower back, I have managed to recover somewhat to reflect on the Old Boys cricket event last Saturday.

Following on from last year’s successful Old Boys game against the Goblins, this year we hosted another mighty cricket clash between the Old Boys of two highly regarded prep schools - ST PETER’S vs THE RIDGE. The two matches were played in buoyant spirit with both young and old - a number of festive “20 Somethings” bringing lots of banter and great fun.  One game was certainly played in a more competitive spirit whilst the “mixed ability” game enjoyed more humour and liquid refreshments.
