It was a pleasure to attend the Senior School play The Caucasian Chalk Circle a collaboration between St Peter’s College and our partner girls’ schools. Hours and hours of dedication and rehearsals by staff and students paid off and the production was a resounding success. I particularly enjoyed the score, composed and played by Eton Williams, Year 10. Thank you to the Director, Ms Jacqueline Cook and the entire team of support staff.

May I also thank those families that have already contributed to the annual giving campaign. For more than 170 years the ongoing development of St Peter’s College has been sustained by the generosity of our community, who have sought to ensure that the School is well resourced and access is provided to scholarships. Within each of our means, I encourage you to join me in contributing to the annual giving campaign.

The dates for the winter intercol have now been confirmed as Wednesday 21 August to Saturday 24 August. I know some students are disappointed by the change in location for their games but it is our hope that participation and attendance will be a point of focus for our community during this week.
