Our School Athletics Day is to be held on Monday, 20th February. If the weather is wet it will be postponed until Friday, 24th February. Please listen to Hokonui 94.8FM and check out the St Peter’s College Facebook page for cancellations. Athletics Day is a great fun day and we encourage parents and community members to come along and support the students. We are still looking for help with events on the day. If you are able to help please contact Jenna McPhee at school on 208 9061 ext.744. The Hostel will be running a canteen during Athletics Day. Please note it will be cash only. Eftpos will not be available.
The senior students (Years 11-13) will be dressing in their house colour for the day but need to ensure they dress in a way that they can still compete fully in the events they have entered. Our junior students (Years 7-10) are asked to wear their PE uniform. For some this is the new PE top and for others the white top. Students are not to bring face paint to school; however we encourage the Juniors to wear an accessory with their PE uniform eg. hair ribbons, coloured socks etc. to show their House colour.
The reason behind this is that we need to ensure the toilet area is not left in a mess for the cleaners and, because PE uniform is being worn, we need to ensure as much as possible that it is protected from other types of more permanent paint that may be brought into school accidentally.
