The St Peter's Kapahaka group shone on stage at the recent arts extravaganza. They performed two Waiata and were well received on stage by the audience. The group was only recently formed and showed leadership and mana to get on stage and bring Maori performing arts to the show. Congratulations to all members of the Kapahaka.
The night also contained performances from Sol Wyatt on guitar and vocals, Ben Wyatt on drums and Grace Turipa on vocals. The group wowed audiences with their professionalism and musicality.

The SPC Principal's Choice Art Award is a monthly competition open to any SPC student to enter. An entry may be any piece of art created at school or in your own time. It must be created entirely by you and must be submitted, with an entry form attached, at the Main Office. Entries must be submitted as physical works of art (not in digital form).
Entries are judged by our Principal, Mrs Nicholson, and the winning artwork is displayed in the main office for one month.
