 Principal's Report - September

And that was the second half of term 3 gone…

From school athletics, zone representative carnivals and our upcoming Years 4-6 Gala Day, August and the start of September were the months for sport here at St Peter’s. Apple Store Technology visit and Mapleton Camp (Yr. 5), Prep visit to Lone Pine and Yr. 4 visit to St Helena Island rounded out the variety of excursion experiences for our students.

Some of the key focuses in the Religious Life of St Peter’s were celebrating St Mary Mackillop Feast Day Mass which combined with our social justice week and the various weekly school prayer assemblies. On the celebration front we were certainly busy with the Father’s Day BBQ and Disco as well as a very successful Book Week. The focus of this terms Well Being was Child Protection and carried with it the message of RECOGNISE, REACT and REPORT. I’d like to acknowledge the role of the Yr. 6 Well Being Warriors and Chloe O’Reilly in leading this important learning  with the school. School grounds projects included working on the retaining wall, safety fence built in the junior playground, repairs of the library surfeits and the beginning of automatizing watering systems in the school. We are currently finalising plans for the boat at our school entrance as well as expansion of the Nano Nagle garden. Thank you to our parent community for their role in providing such a successful Father’s Day BBQ, Disco (Prep parents) and building of the retaining wall near the senior playground. (and the work in clearing out the P&F shed!)
