Girls Prep  May 27, 2016 | Academics | Cultural | Physical education | Sport | Pam van Gass

St Peter’s girls have been offered nine Open Academic scholarships, five Cultural Scholarships (four for Music and one for Drama) and one Sports Scholarships to respected South African high schools. All of these, bar one closed scholarship to St Peter’s College, are open scholarships and accessible to pupils from all schools. We are exceptionally proud of the girls’ achievement. In most cases, these girls wrote a Maths and English scholarship exam and participated in an interview. Many school heads commended the girls on their positive attitude, diligent work ethic and individual charm and manners. 

We thank all our girls who uphold the values of St Peter’s every day and contribute in a huge way to our reputation and standing in the school community. Thank you to the exceptional, industrious staff who guide all our girls in their learning and celebrate their various successes with them.

To our scholarship recipients of 2016 - may you enjoy this celebratory time with your family and friends.

CHOICE OF HIGH SCHOOL

Girls Prep Boys Prep  March 07, 2016 | Academics | Social and emotional | Cara Eggett and Dave Hala (Directors of Pastoral Care)

Choice of high school has the potential to create much anxiety for parents. This becomes evident in the Grade 6 year where parents are making the final decisions and girls and boys attend interviews at the schools of their choice. In some cases parents place unnecessary pressure on their children and set unrealistic goals during this time. The Grade 6 year is comparable to the Grade 11 year in high school, where pupils are under pressure to perform in the classroom in order to be accepted at the university of their choice.
