Mixed emotions have been felt across the Senior School these past two weeks as the Class of 2020 prepared to farewell those that have inspired them during their time at St Peter’s College. Thursday was particularly emotional as our Year 12s joined their House groups for the final time, attended their final Chapel Service and final Muster before being recognised by the School community along the Avenue of Honour. Celebrations concluded with Speech Day followed by the Valedictory Dinner.

I congratulate the Class of 2020 for the way they have conducted themselves during the year, particularly with the added pressures and uncertainty that no one could have anticipated. I wish each student the very best of luck for their final examinations and much success for the next chapter in their lives.

Over the past two weeks, our Junior School students have been on their own adventures as part of the School’s Outdoor Education Program. The Year 6 Camp to Kangaroo Island, Year 4 Storm Boy Camp at Finniss, Year 3 Camp at Mylor and Year 2 Sleepover in the Junior School, have provided each student with important development and learning opportunities outside the classroom. These camps, rescheduled from earlier in the year, have made for a very busy start to the term.

On Tuesday we were delighted to welcome the Honourable Steven Marshall MP to the Junior School. In a week in which we celebrated Book Week across the School, the Premier captivated some of our youngest students with a reading of Bat vs Poss by Alexa Moses. He also congratulated them on their efforts to complete the Premier’s Reading Challenge. I was incredibly proud to witness the student’s genuine love of reading and extend my congratulations to every student in the Junior School for completing the reading challenge this year.
