Kia Ora and warm greetings to you all
Well the last week of term has seen no let up in terms of busyness for students and staff. We started this week with some speeches at assembly for the position of Student Representative on the Board of Trustees. Our two very capable candidates, Molly Hailes and Frances Bote, made compelling listening regarding how they would represent the student body if elected. Elections took place yesterday, and it is my pleasure to announce France Bote as the new Student Representative to the Board of Trustees.
Tuesday was the full dress rehearsal at SBS St James Theatre for our wonderful cast members of ‘High School Musical’. Mr Munn and his cast of talented students preformed on Thursday night to good crowds and will be on stage again tonight. We thank all those involved over the weeks, for the energy and enthusiasm to bring such a fantastic show together in such a short space of time. With both Mr Munn and Mrs Borgman moving on at the end of this year, we really have some big shoes to fill in the future. Thank you.
Wednesday was Sports and Cultural photos and it is always nice to see our groups together in one place looking wonderful. It does make you consider the time and effort that goes in by parents and staff to make it all happen and our students are so very fortunate to have the kind of support they have, so on their behalf, thank you so very much.
And of course, the big news of the week was the announcement of the selection of our new Principal, Mrs Tara Quinney, who will begin at St Peter’s in January 2020. Tara is a born and bred Southlander, who is very community minded. She is a warm and friendly person who is very much looking forward to starting at St Peter’s College and meeting the new people in the Parish and the wider community. We are certainly very excited to have her on board and we wish her all the very best as she joins our dynamic and committed team her at school.
Have a restful and relaxing holiday - be kind to yourself and others.
