The End of Term 1
And just like that, the end of Term 1 is upon us!
For us, these 11 weeks have managed to be very long yet fly by at the exact same time.
It is sometimes a tough ask having the first term be the longest, but at least now the following terms will all be shorter – especially for Year 12s!
One-quarter into our roles, we have had some fascinating times already. We thoroughly enjoyed organising and running the 2014 St Peter’s College National Student Leadership Summit, and had several wonderful staff guide us through. We have taken part in Year 8 Cyberbullying programs, sat in on respective classes, and watched as our boys in the Mighty Blue gave it their all for the 2014 Summer Intercol Season.
We would like to congratulate Prince Alfred College on their Rowing, Swimming and Tennis wins, and wish them all the best for the winter season.
However, we would also like to say how proud we were seeing boys compete against their PAC counterparts, and would like to recognise the enormous amount of work that you have all put in – a wonderful achievement. Congratulations must also go to the Badminton, Cricket and Water Polo teams on their Intercol wins.
This, of course, would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of the teachers, coaches and helpers of each sport. Saints sport would not run the way it does without you, and on behalf of the boys, we thank you.
The facilities we are so lucky to have here at St Peter’s College are all due to our Ground and Maintenance staff, and so for your superhuman work ethic and genuine passion for keeping ovals and facilities in top shape, we are forever grateful.
We would like to wish each and every boy – and their families – the best for the upcoming two-week holiday. We hope it is a productive but also relaxing and enjoyable time away from school for you all, and we cannot wait to welcome you back to Term 2 on the 29th of April.
We will begin Term 2 with an Anzac Day service at 8:45am in front of Mem Hall; however, we ask that boys arrive on time at 8:35am for their mentor meetings prior to the service. It is a time for us, as a school, to recognise the service of our Old Scholars for the nation that they are so proud of, and to remember those Old Scholars who unfortunately lost their lives fighting for us.
Drive safely, everyone, and enjoy your holidays!
Darcy and James
