Welcome back to the 2016 year, with a very heartfelt welcome to our new students and their families. We hope that your time at St Peter's College is very rewarding.
This year we focus on the value Compassion - Aroha. Compassion fits beautifully into our school life this year as we answer the call from Pope Francis to practice Mercy; it also fits beautifully into our focus on right relationships with the restoration of relationships being the foundation of our pastoral and discipline system. We soon enter the liturgical season of Lent. Throughout this season at school we will be examining how we show mercy and compassion in our lives.
Thank you to Grace and John Rogerson, Taare Bradshaw and Terry Stott who assisted with our powhiri on Monday to welcome our new students and staff to the college. A big thank you also to Susan Winters and student Tuterangi Setefano who helped prepare the new students for this.
