Each term I display a new collection of student art work in my office. In Term 4 I have had the pleasure of displaying Aboriginal dot painting inspired compositions depicting waterholes, resting places, hills, sand dunes and rolling valleys. The work of the following boys is currently on display:
• Ned Manifold
• William Atkins
• Nicholas Miles
• Aarav Kochar
• Charles Meilillo
• Markis Kallos
• Daniel Cao
• Hunter Di Blasio
• Shreyus Arramraj
Thank you to these students for contributing to my office gallery this term.
Week 6 Assemblies
On Friday 13 November we held two assemblies; one for Years 3 to 6 students and our Junior Primary Assembly.
In our Years 3 to 6 Assembly, we celebrated our exceptional community of learning by presenting prizes and awards of participation in the Australasian Problem Solving Mathematics Olympiad, Robocup State Championships, the Premier’s Reading Challenge and Mindlab finals.
Our Art Captain, Nicholas Roberston (Year 6), presented a report about our Artist in Residence, Amy Joy Watson, and the work that boys across the Junior School have been creating at each year level. The Years 3 and 4 Choir, joined by guest Year 2 performers, sung ‘Run For Gold’ and the Swing Band played ‘Soul Bossa’. This assembly line-up demonstrates the incredible range of opportunities available to our students at St Peter’s College.
Our Junior Primary Assembly was held in Memorial Hall for the first time and we were joined by Old Scholars who started Year 1 in Old Palm House in 1970. David Colovic and his peers spoke to the boys about their recollections of being students at St Peter’s College in the 1970s. The students enjoyed asking the old scholars questions about what learning looked like, what important lessons they learnt when at school and the fire that occurred in Memorial Hall in 1985.
We have appreciated the flexibility of families and staff as we have shifted into a remote learning situation last week. Please let us know if there is any way in which the School can support you and your family at this time. I am grateful to have had so many of our teachers volunteer to be on campus for children of essential workers last week.
I recognise that it has been extremely disappointing to have missed the Year 4 Concert last week, and we hope that further events may be able to be rescheduled.
Please feel free to contact me at any time with any feedback and questions.
Take care and have a good weekend.
Head of Junior School
