We are looking forward to welcoming parents onto campus for parent teacher interviews next week. I am grateful to parents and teachers for taking the time to meet and talk about our students’ academic progress, strengths, and areas for improvement as well as social and emotional development.

Your sons, whilst they may not show it, are grateful to know that their parents and teachers spend time talking about them. It shows them we are collaboratively invested in caring for their academic growth, their broader interests and wellbeing.

Beyond positive parent-teacher relationships, our students also benefit from the connections built between parents through broader community events. Whether it be Movie Night, Swimming Carnivals, watching inter school sport, dropping into the library with your son or attending assemblies or Chapel services, connecting with others across and within our community helps build the village around our children. Even popping in to buy a coffee or hot chocolate from our Barista Boys is an opportunity for building community.

It has also been excellent, over the course of this term, to welcome parents to our Junior School Parent Workshop Series. Presenters have included our School Psychologists Shannon DeSilva and Jane Walch, Deputy Head of Junior School – Wellbeing and Administration, Ben Storer, Head of Digital Innovation and Integration, Angela Norman, Year 3 Coordinator and THRASS master, Jo Tierney and Deputy Head of Junior School – Teaching and Learning, Chris Sanders. I encourage parents and guardians to continue to take advantage of the sessions we run to further strengthen the connections we have between home and School.

Thank you again for your engagement and involvement in our St Peter’s College community. I look forward to seeing you at Summer House Games, if not before. Please remember, I appreciate your feedback, suggestions and questions when I see you on campus.

Have a great weekend.

Deputy Headmaster / Head of Junior School
