This coming week we have our college celebration week and a couple of key dates are the reason for this. July 1st is the anniversary of Blessed Antonio Rosmini, the founder of the Rosminian Order, and the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul is Friday, June 29th. We will begin our celebrations with a Mass on Wednesday morning, celebrated by Bishop Michael Dooley, followed by the 50th St Peter’s College Eisteddfod. The four houses have been working hard on their house song and waiata, and I am sure that the house competition is going to be hotly contested again this year.
You may have heard about the current NCEA review which is one of a number of education reviews and discussions that have been instigated by the Minister of Education. You can attend the NCEA Review Public workshop in Invercargill on Monday 23 July at 7.00pm if you would like to have your views heard. Please refer to the attached information or you can find more at www.conversation.education.govt.nz/ncea.
Best of luck to our U15 girls’ rugby team which is playing in the curtain raiser for the Highlanders - French Barbarians game tonight at Rugby Park. I know you will do St Peter’s College proud!
Please remember that you are invited to any of the Eisteddfod elimination events, the Feast Day Mass, the Best of the Rest Concert on Friday afternoon and of course the final Eisteddfod Concert at the SBS St James Theatre on the following Thursday evening. It will be good to see you there! In the meantime, have a warm, fun-filled weekend.
