Our School Athletics Day is to be held on Monday, 22nd of February. If the weather is wet it will be postponed until Wednesday, 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 Kathryn Pinckney 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 IOU’s.
The senior students (Year 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 (Year 7-10) are asked to wear their PE uniform. For some this is the new PE top and for others the white top.
As the new PE tops do not differentiate between houses, we have found a way of showing house spirit. Students are asked not to wear face paint to school, but instead washable face paint will be applied in a controlled manner at school by a number of Year 13 students with staff in attendance.
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. If you do not want your child to wear face paint on the day, please email the firstname.lastname@example.org.
