It was a privilege to welcome the Honourable Mr Steven Marshall MP, Premier of South Australia to the School for the second time in as many weeks.
The Premier addressed Senior School students at Muster on Tuesday. He spoke about the challenges of 2020 for all South Australians and how despite the added obstacles for students this year they should feel fortunate to live in one of the safest states, in the one of the safest countries in the world.
Reflecting on the unparalleled contributions that St Peter’s College alumni have made to society, the Premier encouraged students to find what it is they are passionate about, set goals for themselves and work hard to achieve them. He inspired students to embrace the breadth of opportunities offered at St Peter’s College and leave school with the vision to make a meaningful contribution to the broader society.
Around the School, Year 12 IB and SACE examinations are underway, and I am proud of the way each student has continued to approach their studies during this period. Year 7 and 8 students have been on their own adventures, with camps at Finniss. We look forward to welcoming Year 7 students home this afternoon.
Junior School students embraced the House spirit at the Junior Primary Sports Day and Years 3 to 6 Athletics Carnival last week and I thoroughly enjoyed watching all boys actively participate across many events. The Year 3 Strings Concert last Wednesday evening was a wonderful testament to the Year 3 strings program. Students came together to perform in front of their family and friends and showcase their hard work throughout the year.
The Junior School this afternoon will celebrate the Colour Run on Girdlestone Oval. The run is focused on fun and fitness with the added bonus of raising funds to support bushfire relief efforts.
