Remembrance Day

This year Remembrance Day was commemorated last Saturday. An event which occurred over 100 years ago could easily be forgotten or at least the meaning behind the day can. St Peter’s College was represented by next year’s West School Captains, Cambell Bryan and Brooklyn Faamausili and staff member Greg Nelson at the service held at the Cranbourne Cenataph. A wreath laying ceremony was held as part of remembering the fallen with Cambell and Brooklyn able to present a wreath. It is important for St Peter’s to have a presence in such an important community event, more importantly though is that we acknowledge the contribution of the fallen to the subsequent peace we now experience in our lands. My thanks is extended to Mr Nelson, Brooklyn and Cambell for their attendance and representation.

Staff Movement 2018

Headstart 2018 commences next week. The 2017 headstart was a huge success as students buckled down to commence their 2017 studies with their 2017 teachers. It provided both staff and students with an ideal ‘entrée’ in preparing for the year ahead. Students were engaged in their learning and excited by commencing their academic program early. It also enabled a seamless commencement to the following year. This year’s program will be more of the same but also provide an opportunity for staff and students to engage fully with the new Learning Management System, Schoolbox – an exciting addition to the delivery of curriculum, one which brings parents closer to their child’s learning.

It is appropriate therefore that with the commencement of the 2018 academic year that I make announcements around staff movement. We will be farewelling the following staff at the end of this year: Jason Blackburn, Rebecca Crozier, Orwin DeKretser, Marissa Joyce, Matthew Laurie, Sophie MacReadie, Shannon Maher, Kirsty Molesworth, Steve Nash, Olimpia Rosenblum, Helen Smith and Peter Woodhouse. We thank them for their significant contribution to our community. We will welcome a number of new staff in 2018 and I look forward to introducing you to them next year.

Uniform Changes 2018

I am happy to announce that from 2018 we will be introducing pants as an option for Girls as part of the Winter uniform. Girls will be able to purchase and wear the long pants option in Terms 2 and 3 only. This decision has been made after an exhaustive consultative process which commenced with the formation of the Uniform sub-committee, the distribution of a survey to all key stakeholders, a presentation to the Parents and Friends Committee, to staff, students and finally to the College Board. The board approved and ratified the final submission to introduce the option at our last meeting. We are currently in negotiations with our Uniform provider, Perm-a-pleat regarding the cost. One of the key recommendations emanating from the survey results was that the design should be a tailored pant designed for women. A variety of shades of grey will also be considered. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have contributed to this process but particularly the uniform sub-committee for their work on this project.

SIS Art and Technology Exhibition

I was privileged to attend the SIS Art and Technology exhibition this week. At the conclusion of the East and the West St Peter’s College Arts and Technology exhibition a number of our pieces of Art and Technology are then short-listed to be exhibited in the combined SIS schools exhibition. It was inspiring to attend the exhibition and there was also a sense of pride as our student’s work was showcased alongside the exceptional Art and Technology pieces presented from across all other secondary SIS. It was an opportunity to also catch-up with lots of parents on the night. Congratulations to all our budding Artists and Technology students whose pieces were deemed worthy to exhibit.
