Headmaster’s Address 2022

Dear Staff, Parents and Students

This has been quite an extraordinary year in so many respects but, I feel especially honoured to lead our community and to play my role in ensuring that we continue to celebrate our illustrious history whilst working together to further develop and enhance this liberal and progressive Anglican school. As we come to the end of the 2022 Academic Year, it is a good time to reflect on what we have achieved, update you on some important changes as look forward to an even more successful 2023.

It is an exciting time to be at St Peter’s College. We have a great leadership team which thrives on change, diversity, and progress. I am proud and honoured to be able to reiterate that I am fortunate to be working with some of the best educators that I have had the privilege to work alongside. The drive, passion, and determination; underpinned by skill, knowledge, and empathy, has seen teaching and Learning continue to raise progress and achievement, despite the ever changing social, learning and emotional needs that we are confronted with.

Our students and staff are working hard to ensure that 2023 continues with real momentum; there is such positive energy in our school and it’s great to feel it. Our school environment generates a great deal of positive feedback from the wider community. On Open Day on Saturday, 26 March, we had many comments from prospective parents and students who were impressed by the number of outstanding facilities and what the College has to offer. Our teachers have been amazing! The fact St Peter’s College has continued to operate seamlessly, with a consistently high standard of professionalism, is a tribute to their resilience and sheer strength of character.

We are privileged to have several staff join St Peter’s College and I want to take this opportunity to inform you of recent developments around staff promotions, resignations, new posts and appointments for 2023:

• HOD Business Studies – The current HOD Mrs Vuyelwa Kekana has accepted a post at Steyn City and is replaced by Mrs Halisha Ramlall, the HOD at the UCT online school.

• HOD of Creative Arts – With Mrs Crystal Miles stepping down as HOD, we have appointed Ms Staci Howard to replace Crystal from January 2023. This is an internal appointment.

2 1

• Social Science – Mrs Patricia Bossinger, who is the HOD at St Alban’s College will join St Peter’s College in January 2023 to replace the late Mr Francois du Toit.

• Physical Science – Mrs Gwyn Zimmerman has accepted a post at St Stithians Girls, therefore both Mr Dylan Hayes and Ms Kgaogelo Mangena will be teaching some of Gwyn’s senior science classes in 2023. We have appointed Mr Dylan Cooper from Penryn College to teach the junior Technology classes in place of Dylan Hayes.

• Afrikaans – Mrs Rose Koffman has resigned as a member of the Afrikaans Department. We have appointed Mrs Nicolene Lehman, a very experienced senior Afrikaans teacher in a locum position to allow the college time to appoint a replacement for Rose.

Please join me in welcoming the new staff to the College.

The 2022 Academic programme has been another busy year with many changes. It is an exciting time, as change is the new norm. We have a great leadership team which thrives on change, diversity and progress. The team is focused on accelerating learning and using current theory and evidence to improve professional practise. The Teaching and Learning which we are seeing at St Peter’s College in 2022 and beyond, is brilliant; the opportunities being afforded to our students is of the highest quality and meets the diverse range of learning needs.

Academic innovation has always been encouraged at St Peter’s College. Our Academic faculty, under the leadership of our Deputy Headmistress of Education, Mrs Shelly Matthews and her HOD (Head of Department) team have been instrumental in ensuring that the college continuously implements the best academic practice.

In 2023, the Module subjects will be run over a Term where the Grade 8 and 9 students will study three modules per Term. This will give the Elective Subjects more contact time, while still accommodating the new Elective Subjects introduced in 2022. Project-Based Learning will become a module alongside the Elective Subjects. The HODs have spent much time this Term planning on how to introduce rigorous projects into the elective modules. It is a privilege to see the passion and commitment of the teachers to promote the love of learning via the One Problem One Day cross-curricular days which will continue in 2023. We continue to promote blended learning.

During August of 2022, eleven teachers completed a 30-hour online course, the Active Connected Teaching Course (ACT) run by Professor Craig Blewett. He has

a PhD in education technology. The ACT model is the first of its kind when it comes to cohesive taxonomy of digital age pedagogies.

The Microsoft Innovation Expert (MIE) list was released at the beginning of September 2022. We are proud to announce that thirty-seven of our teachers were accepted into the program, eleven were renewal applications, and twenty-six were accepted for the first time.

We are proud to announce that St Peter’s College was awarded Microsoft Showcase status. We are one of six schools in South Africa who met the exhaustive criteria to achieve this status. Microsoft Showcase Schools form part of an exclusive global community, recognised and celebrated for educational transformation that includes vision and innovation in teaching, learning and preparing students for the future.

The Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) Expert program recognises educator visionaries who are using technology to achieve better learning and student outcomes. Congratulations to our 37 members of staff who were recognised as MIE Experts for the 2022-2023 year.

What defines us as a college, is the courage, creativity and resilience with which successive generations of Old Petrians have responded to challenge, rather than the intrinsic nature of these challenges themselves. I am proud, and honoured, to be able to reiterate that I am fortunate to be working with some of the best educators that I have had the privilege to work alongside. The drive, passion and determination; underpinned by skill, knowledge and empathy, has seen Teaching and Learning continue to raise progress and achievement despite the ever changing social, learning and emotional needs with which we are confronted. The Academic team is aware of areas to develop and, through reflective practise, address these areas as individuals and as a whole staff approach.

A requirement for continued membership of ISASA for member schools, is that they undertake a Core Model evaluation that must be conducted once in every six-year cycle. St Peter’s College underwent the IQAA (Independent Quality Assurance Agency) evaluation process 4 years ago, hence we are due to conduct another survey in 2024. However, a new independent quality assurance agency, OISESA (Office of Independent Schools Evaluations) was established at the beginning of 2022 to oversee and implement this process.

St Peter’s College has been selected for a Quality Assurance Visit by OISESA during 2023. OISESA has confirmed that they will be onsite on 13-14 March,

although the evaluation process will commence in January 2023.

In the interim, we decided to undergo an “Academic Climate Survey” with our parent and student body. School self-evaluation is primarily about school improvement and development. This self-evaluation process will enable us to take initiatives that will improve the quality of education that we provide for our students, to affirm and build on what is working well at St Peter’s College, to identify areas in need of development and to decide on actions that should be taken to bring about improvements in those areas. The results from this survey will assist the College in putting a strategy together for implementation in 2023 which will ensure continuous academic improvement.

The world after COVID-19 is unlikely to return to the world that was. Many trends already underway in the global economy are being accelerated by the impact of the pandemic. Edward David Asihene Obeng (born 1959) a British organisational theorist, educator, and author, serves as a professor at Henley Business School and his concept of the New World proposes that we have moved (as a world) from an age when we could learn faster than our local environment (the ‘Old World’), to a new age where the local environment of individuals, organisations, and governments changes

hinder performance is minimized and the potential for diversity to enhance performance is maximized.

Hence, the St Peter’s College Executive has been focused and deliberate in driving Transformation and the Skills & Equity Committee have recently undergone extensive training to ensure that all members understand their roles and responsibilities within the committee.

The entire College leadership team comprising of the College Executive team, Heads of Department and Grade Heads underwent the intensive Dare to Lead™ training course which is a courage-building programme, which develops the skills of individuals, teams, leaders, schools and organisations to create the capability needed to become braver and develop more courageous cultures. The world needs to reset, problem solve, connect, create empathy, and stand up for what is right. Skill sets of courage-building will be practiced getting the learning “in your bones”. Contemplate on where you need to have more courage in your life, before the workshop.

Our Campus Development has quite literally sprung into life over the past few months. A few days of warming temperatures with a little sunshine have banished memories of winter, encouraging us all to be increasingly optimistic about the future. When planning for the 2023 academic year, with the launch of our move towards a sense of “normality”, I am delighted to be able to report that the news is mostly extremely positive.

faster than we can learn (the ‘New World’). He argues that, because of this shift, most of the concepts, best practices, and assumptions that we commonly used to plan, manage, lead, organise, and govern are obsolete and damaging to the lives of individuals, society, and organisations. Obeng describes this as smart failure for a fast changing world and is perhaps best summarised by Eric Hoffer’s reflection that “In a time of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned usually find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer exists”.

In my Headmaster’s report to Council in 2020 on the topic of Transformation and Diversity, I had reported that as a College that embraces diversity, we needed to create a system and environment that welcomes and stimulates Employment Equity leading to valuing differences and similarities. We needed to be proactive in creating and sustaining an organizational climate in which the potential for diversity-related dynamics to

Due to popular demand, we can report that we have had continued growth in student numbers. With this healthy interest at all points of entry, including Grade 9-11, there is every expectation that the College will receive its biggest contingent of new students in its history when we open for the 2023 Academic year in January.

On the back of these confident predictions, the St Peter’s College Council granted authorisation to move to the next stage of planning and preparation for an exciting new capital development, the first significant investment in our academic infrastructure since the onset of COVID-19 in 2020. The building of our new state of the art Maths Centre has been completed and the state-of-the-art Indoor Basketball Centre and outdoor arena is also nearing completion.

We have a few CAPEX projects planned for 2023 which are part of our wider green energy plans and a move to significantly reduce our environmental impact and dependence on power and water supplied by utility companies.

Water Harvesting - We have begun inserting water storage facilities at various key points in the college to capture rainwater. We are also going to be investing in solar energy, that will produce enough energy to cover a great portion of our power needs.

We are currently in talks with Eskom to lease/purchase the land adjacent to St Peter’s College which will enable us to expand our parking capacity exponentially and will go a long way to ease the pressure on the traffic flow, especially during peak times.

We will be introducing a new food serving area on the “College Flats” for our students, staff and parents. The area has already been paved and we have been in negotiations with our current service provider who will be introducing a portable caravan/vehicle which has been refurbished for this purpose. It will have a different and exciting menu, such as, shwarmas. We will be placing a number of tables/chairs and umbrellas on this site for the use of our College community.

event in the 20-year history of this event, in what was the 17th edition of the Festival.

In all, large numbers of College staff, parents and students worked tirelessly on registration, food, refereeing, clean-up and judging at the Festival. Over 3 000 participants, 1 000s of parents and community members and 42 schools came through the College gates and participated and supported the many activities on offer.

In conclusion, to all our students, remember to take the values that have been instilled in you at St Peter’s College, our Core Values or 4Rs of, Relationships, Respect, Responsibility and Resilience with you as you carry on through life. Show the world you care. Be a thinker. Always work hard. Communicate effectively through any means possible and continue to make those meaningful connections to develop as a unique individual. Try to remember that, as you face big changes, you are not alone. We will be thinking of you. There are good things waiting for you just around the corner. So, step out with confidence and take new opportunities in your stride.

Bursary Trust Committee

Our Heritage Day celebrations began with a memorable Eucharist Service led by the Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Johannesburg, the Revd Dr Steve Moreo as only St Peter’s College can. What a special and powerful message by Bishop Steve to our staff and students in his sermon – definitely “Food for the Soul”.

“There’s something special about this school, there’s a vibe, an Africanness about the space, the learners and the teachers.”

It was wonderful to see the myriad of cultural attire worn by both, our staff and students. Together, the St Peter’s College community celebrated the pride in being who we are, One Nation, All South Africans!” A special word of thanks to all our staff and students who joined in sharing with us the beauty and the glory of this, South Africa’s National Day. South Africans all over the world, gather to celebrate Heritage Day in style, in line with the theme: “United in our diversity, we share one unique, national culture!

The Sports & Cultural Festival took place from Thursday, 22 – Sunday, 25 September 2022 and was a resounding success. It has undoubtedly been the most successful

To the families leaving St Peter’s College this year, thank you for being part of our unique and special community, your contribution has been appreciated. To the students at St Peter’s College - thank you for making this such an amazing place. We look forward to a more settled, but equally amazing 2023. For my part, I am enormously grateful to the St Peter’s College family for your continued support and encouragement. I am looking forward to the new academic year and wish everyone the very best for a little rest over the December holidays.

Executive Members

Headmaster at St Peter’s College, Rui Morais, is a highly versatile and dynamic professional with a successful background in leading substantial strategic improvements in standards of teaching, learning and providing support to students, delivery staff and management personnel.

Rui’s exceptional interpersonal and communication skills ensure that he naturally develops a strong rapport with others while developing curriculum and management strategy. Yet, these relationships often extend beyond traditional business interaction. His reputation as a motivational and inspirational team player is well-founded, and he finds fulfilment in coaching and empowering others towards fulfilling their potential and making a positive contribution to the achievement of their personal objectives.

As a competent strategist, Rui has also proven his ability to influence policy and developments with direct and positive impact on education and learning. Coupled with his strong planning capabilities, this characteristic provides clear direction for the future of St Peter’s College, taking into consideration all aspects involved in increasing establishment ranking.

“I embrace the challenge of identifying next steps for positive turn-around, correcting errors and implementing appropriate change management courses of action” he says. With Rui at the helm St Peter’s college looks set to grow from strength to strength.

“ It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” - Albert Einstein

Revd. Kabelo Motlhakane

Chaplain and Head of Transformation & Inclusion

School Chaplain and Head of Transformation at St Peter’s College, Reverend Kabelo Motlhakane, is unique amongst his fellow specialists in transformation and belonging, as possibly the only ordained priest that holds both callings.

St Peter’s espouses Anglican Christian values in every facet of its activities and promotes a deep-seated culture of respect across colour, creed and background as outlined in the school’s Mission statement and core values of respect, honour, compassion, collaboration, resilience and responsibility.

Reverend Kabelo’s role reinforces this approach as he serves both as the school’s spiritual leader and as a consciousness for all matters relating to the intersectional nature of race, religion, sexuality, gender, and other social differentiators. On an overarching level, he aims to ensure that all who enter the St Peter’s College Campus feel safe, heard, seen and appreciated.

“My role is integral to how individuals, especially those who belong to marginalised groups (both historically and contextually), interact with the school’s content and the symbols and culture the school embodies, “ he says. “As an ordained Anglican priest, my departure point for the work of transformation and belonging is always from the perspective that Jesus is an active liberator and one that finds common ground in spaces of great conflict.

When I facilitate conversations and engage our students and staff, I try to unearth the humanity at the core of our diversity. Ours is a humanity that is made in the one undivided image of a loving God, and it is from a place of love for humanity, creation, and community that all I do comes from. I believe that nothing human can ever be alien to me; everything good and bad that another human being can do, I am equally capable of.”

A qualified Chartered Accountant with a strong background in the audit, advisory and financial services industry, Ndivhuwo Nengovhela fulfilled the role of Executive Finance Manager at St Peter’s Prep School for four years before joining St Peter’s College as Senior Finance Manager in September 2021.

Ndivhuwo’s career success is built around her ability to continuously create organisational value across various fast-paced environments. That characteristic, combined with in depth knowledge and skills of technical and industry elements, provides the perfect foundation for managing the St Peter’s College Finances.

At St Peter’s, the role of Senior Finance Manager is to navigate the College through the finance, governance, risk management and systems landscape towards financial sustainability and growth. However, together with overall financial oversight and risk mitigation aspects, come significant Business Management responsibilities. As part of the Senior Executive team involved in developing and implementing the strategic direction for the College, Ndivhuwo’s contribution includes scoping and proposing optimal organisational business structure and the planning, accessing, negotiation and implementation of the most appropriate capital structure and debt funding.

Her proficiency in driving seamless operations and rapidly assessing and fulfilling requirements has informed her career journey thus far and now benefits the College’s financial team. Ndivhuwo describes her professional and personal outlook with a quote by Tony Robbins; “Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution, experience life’s deepest joy: true fulfilment.”

Brian Armitage Deputy Head, Student Affairs

Brian Armitage has an in-depth understanding of, and unwavering belief in, the holistic programme on offer at St Peter’s College. His 26 years of teaching Mathematics, Technical Subjects and Mathematical Literacy, coupled with extensive managerial experience as Head of Department, Grade Head and Head of CoCurricular have prepared him well for his role as Deputy Headmaster, Student Affairs. At St Peter’s, the role of Deputy Headmaster includes managing the Pastoral Care Team and overseeing the Student Programme in line with the overall strategic plan and objectives of the executive committee.

The Grade Pastoral Care Team comprises of five Grade Heads, five Grade Heads Assistants and two Educational Psychologists; all of whom are focused on meeting the emotional, physical and academic needs of the students. The student programme is designed to value the unique contribution of each individual. Towards that end, pastoral and academic staff collaborate in nurturing confidence and maturity in an atmosphere of opportunity and enquiry, and through excellent structures of care. Brian’s career success revolves around his ability to relate to young people and forge strong relationships with students, staff and parents built on trust. His knowledge of the education environment and insight into current familial and socioeconomic pressures make him particularly effective in his role.

He believes that in an ever-changing world, young people must embody values that will enable them to thrive within diverse communities. At St Peter’s, the core values are Relationships, Respect, Responsibility and Resilience and students are encouraged to live these values in every aspect of their lives. The Pastoral Care team oversees many necessary aspects of school life that contribute to the social and emotional wellbeing of the students under their care. Their goal is to develop young people with vision, energy, and enterprise; who are not afraid of hard work, who value teamwork, and who bear the good of the greater community in mind at all times.

St Peter’s Operations Manager, Lynda Kirkland, is another example of a string of long-term connections between the College and its staff members. Her first engagement in St Peter’s College take place way back in its founding days when Lynda’s son, Matthew Kirkland, was one of the Colleges founding students and her initial volunteer work at the school shop, led to her appointment as Personal Assistant to former St Peter’s Rector, Mr Greg Royce. She continued to work for several school heads until finally family commitment saw her relocating to Port Alfred, where she owned and managed a successful gym for a few years.

However, when St Peter’s call to take up the position of professional assistant came in 2015, she took on the challenge with enthusiasm. The rest, as they say, is history! Her ongoing commitment and talent lead to Lynda taking up the reins in Operations in 2020, where the portfolio encompasses the planning, directing, coordinating, and overseeing of all operations, including oversight of the building and assets maintenance staff, drivers, security services and various outsourced service providers, including grounds and cleaning teams. In keeping with the school’s ethos Lynda’s roll focuses predominantly on the day-to-day activities that create a safe, clean environment in which staff and learners can perform to their maximum.

As a member of the executive, Lynda also scopes out the college infrastructure into the future to ensure that the college community continues to have a clean, well maintained and safe, campus in which to realise their potential.

Shelly Matthews

Shelly Matthews has a teaching career that spans over 20 years, more than 10 of which have been spent at St Peter’s College, where as Deputy Head of Academic, her role is integral to the institution’s offering of a relevant yet diverse education in a co-educational environment.

St Peter’s approach is focused on preparing young people holistically and guiding their future according to their strengths and interests rather than concentrating solely on academic achievements. Shelly’s own passion for continuous development is perfectly aligned with that of the College. She studied teaching, taught for 10 years in an HOD role at Sacred Heart College before returning to Wits University to complete her honours degree in Education. The importance of lifelong learning is one of the fundamental messages that she and her team try to impart to their students on a daily basis.

St Peter’s graduates go on to attend both local and international universities and the school itself boasts a 100% pass rate with around a 90% rate of university passes. The education they receive at the College prepares them well for the challenges of tertiary education and a healthy number make the Dean’s list or receive high-level scholarships.

The academic team encourages St Peter’s students to be the change they would like to see in the world, and strive to provide them with a healthy learning foundation to help them become these agents of change. Nelson Mandela’s words of wisdom, encapsulate Shelly’s own philosophy around learning: “Education is the most lethal weapon, because with it you can change the world.”

Nosipho Nkosi heads up the Marketing, Alumni & Admissions portfolio at St Peter’s College, as executive team lead. This portfolio contributes both strategically and operationally to the growth and positioning of St Peter’s College by ensuring that the College remains a strong, recognisable and engaging brand that lives out its values. Under her leadership, the St Peter’s brand continues to be recognised as one of the leading independent schools in South Africa.

A natural passion for sustainable development, youth and leadership development has positioned Nosipho as a mentor and coach within her community, where she facilitates access to entrepreneurship, higher education and skills development. This is a drive that underpins her work at the College as well, where her role is to build high impact strategies around inclusivity and diversity, while nurturing the talent and potential of scholars and teams alike, as outlined in the institution’s vision.

Nosipho’s career history includes a diverse training ground in marketing and communication, programme management, business development, fundraising and coaching. Add to that her 14 years in public relations and communication working within the education and NGO sectors and you have a recipe for marketing success.

At the heart of her personal philosophy is a strong belief that the child must be at the centre of all that education does and aspires to be. “At the heart of education, is the future of all nations.” Nosipho is focused on utilising St Peter’s marketing campaigns as a medium through which to grow an ever-expanding pool of young leaders and advance St Peter’s relationships with stakeholders across multiple disciplines.

Toni’s ability to realise the benefits of healthy working relationships, combined with in-depth knowledge and skills of Human Resource Management; Labour Relations; Talent Management and Psychometrics is at the heart of her career success and contribution to the College.

Practical exposure to a variety of functional sections during an early internship role at Shine, (a niche consultancy focused on improving performance and reducing stress in the workplace, through enabling healthy relationships) laid a strong foundation of workable knowledge and competency across her various areas of practice.

Now, as part of the Senior Executive team at St Peter’s, Toni is involved in developing and fulfilling the strategic goals of the College by effecting Human Relations aspects that harness optimal organisational potential.

Toni believes that investing in ALL personnel makes the organisation functionally more effective, because through working together, everyone achieves more. The phrase “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts” first coined by the philosopher Aristotle, sums up her approach to the HR function at St Peter’s!

2022 grade 12 top achievers

At St Peter’s, no child is left behind. A team of dedicated professionals offer academic, spiritual and emotional support throughout the educational journey. It’s an approach that has proved successful year after year. We highlight the importance of personal achievement within an environment that balances high academic standards with sport, music, culture and religious practice. A clearly defined value system underpins our ethos.

The 2022 matric results show a continuing upward trend. There were 257 A symbols, 283 B symbols, 187 C symbols and some outstanding individual achievements.

Headmaster Rui Morias has paid tribute to deputy headmistress Shelly Matthews and the rest of the school’s academic staff, recognising their contribution to the success of the college: “St Peter’s College benefits every day from the dedicated energies and time devoted by the members of our academic staff. Our college is successful because of the standard of teaching and all the extra opportunities offered to the students, as well as the hard work that takes place.”

Grade 9 Entrepreneurship Day

The Grade 9 Entrepreneurship Day Project aims to help the students think about becoming job creators and not job seekers. There are challenges to explore their entrepreneurial potential and to take the opportunity to develop the necessary skills to become successful business owners one day. This is done through simulating the process from a business idea to a business plan and hopefully culminating in a profit. To this end, the winning business will be the one that is the most professional and not necessarily the group is the most profit.

Matric dance 2022


The aim of the academic programme at St Peter’s College is to foster a love for learning that will promote the desire for our students to be lifelong learners. This is only effective when the students are fully engaged and challenged by the academic programme. The teachers employ several creative strategies to engage their students in an interactive process of teaching and learning. In 2022, I was excited to see the wonderful learning opportunities on offer to our students and realised the importance of sharing this with the greater community so that all stakeholders can share in the success of the academic programme on offer at St Peter’s College. Here is a glimpse of what happens at St Peter’s College daily.

Often the association with Core Mathematics is that there can be no creativity and that the subject does not lend itself to the incorporation of a digital literacy. Our Mathematics Department was eager to get on board with Blended Learning. The Mathematics Department signed up to learn to draw graphs on GeoGebra. The teachers used GeoGebra to produce a Grade 12 Mathematics Portfolio Task. Initially, the students received notes on how to setup equations for the different graphs using GeoGebra. This was followed by the students being guided by the teachers on how to draw basic graphs. Finally, the students were given a picture of a boat on the sea, and they had to find the equations with the restrictions to represent the boat and waves. Both the teachers and the students alike enjoyed the challenge and mastery of this task. The picture graphs were submitted on Teams under assignments. Well done to the Mathematicians.

In Grade 8 and 9, students are required to develop the skills around the Literature Essay. The department noticed that many learners were struggling with the idea of using quotations to support a body of work. Consequently, we asked our students to highlight and organize quotes, in their respective novels, that speak to the development of the novel’s setting. Students were then required to use their researched quotes to digitally build the world of their novels in Minecraft. In doing so, the student was able to see how the quotes in their novels would manifest as physical objectsmoving from the imaginative into reality. Student’s, after building their worlds, definitively understood how the quote related to content. The novel studied was “THE NO.1 LADIES DETECTIVE AGENCY” and is set in Botswana.

This is an example of the work produced by a Grade 9 English student. The image showcases Mma Ramotswe’s beautiful garden. I placed her garden in front of her kitchen window so she could have a good view of anyone who tries to spit in her garden, “At first when she saw them doing that, she would shout at them from the window,” I filled her garden with many trees and shrubs, “...and it was well endowed with trees and shrubs...” as well as an array of different flowers and her pumpkins and pawpaws.

In the subject Drama, one of the areas that students find most difficult, is creating a strong physical character that is different from themselves. So, I thought, “how can I push them to excel in this area without making it unpleasant for students?” I strained my brain and eventually I decided that maybe they could do an animal monologue. This would be the furthest from themselves. To build the skills I took them on an outing to the Pretoria Zoo, where they had to really observe five animals, finding space in the gardens of the Zoo to record videos of themselves being those animals. This led to a follow-up task, where they had to perform a monologue for their Practical Cycle Test as one of these animals. It worked so well, creating valuable skills and yet still being a whole heap of fun!

“One Problem One Day (OPOD) is an innovative, cross-curricular means of testing. Two subjects integrate to create a problem appropriate for 20th-century education to stimulate higher cognitive thinking within our students. Students are given a situation that requires research, planning, and problem-solving.

In 2022, the Social Sciences Department teamed up with the Technology Department for One Problem One Day. The problem that Grade 8 students looked at was the road extension of Van Der Bijl Avenue. However, this extension will cut into the St Peters College driveway and parking lot to merge into the R55. As a result, the development will have a sizeable geographical impact on the area once construction commences.

Students had to use their knowledge of Geographical information systems (GIS) to provide a solution to this problem. This task was cross-linked to technology. They used their IT Skills to create a digital topographic map of the new extension and to write a report on the issues and solutions St Peters College would face in the commencement of the new road. Students could apply their understanding of GIS to the problems faced by this new development. The Grade 8 and 9 students were exposed to the basics of GIS during their Geography lessons. This task created the opportunity for higher cognitive thinking and problem-solving, which will assist students in becoming problem-solvers.”

In the spirit of our Proudly South African Ethos and our diversity, the African Languages Department hosted another Culture & Language Day for our Grade Nine students on Friday, 10 June 2022. We shared something from our backgrounds, customs, and traditions with each other. This afternoon promoted our values - to respect each other, have better relationships and realise our responsibilities as students at St Peter’s College. It played an important role in enhancing our values. It was an afternoon of fun, learning and understanding each other. Students took part in playing Kahoot, as well as Zulu and Afrikaans dancing.

Senior French students have the opportunity to write the DELF exam (Diplôme d’Études en Langue Française) in grades 10, 11 and 12. The DELF certificate is an official qualification issued by the French Ministry of Education to certify the French proficiency of students learning the language. It is also internationally recognized which has benefits for students applying to universities and for jobs, especially overseas. The examination is facilitated by the Alliance Française of Johannesburg.

It is our aim to ensure that students reach at least B1 level French and write the B1 (intermediate) level exam by the time they are in grade 12 with the aim of reaching B2 (intermediate to advanced) by the end of the grade 12 year.

In May 2022, the Grade 9 students visited Constitution Hill. The students visited the Old Fort, Women's Jail and the notorious Number Four prison. They heard stories about some of the people imprisoned there, saw the terrible conditions in the prison and learnt about antiapartheid activists held at the prison complex. They also saw the chambers of the Constitutional Court and saw a group of protestors who had been sleeping outside the court for over a month. The visit created a springboard for discussions in class the next day and assisted the students in the creation of a memory box. Students collaborated in pairs to research the life and role of an anti-apartheid activist and prepared a memory box with artefacts chosen by them which linked to the activist's story before presenting it to the class.

St Peter’s College Entrepreneurship Day is one of our favourite Business Studies projects of the year because students, teachers and parents get a front row seat to amazing creativity from our young entrepreneurs… our students. From the outside, Entrepreneurship Day may seem like a morning where the students have pop-up stalls, but the grade 9 participating students understood that there is so much more going on below the surface that others might miss at first glance. The College was not able to host this monumental educational event due to Covid-19, as a Business Studies team, we were delighted to reintroduce this project to our grade 9 students of 2022. The project sets a foundation to our students who would like to open their own business in the future. It allows for innovation and creativity to take place in their educational journey.

An entrepreneur is a person who organizes and operates a business or businesses, taking on greater than normal financial risks to do so. That is not only what we are trying to get our students to understand, but to pursue the related synonyms that can also describe an entrepreneur. Through this project we want our students to be resourceful traders, dealmakers, self-promoters, movers and shakers, go-getters, and high-flyers. We celebrated the ideas that they came up with and the failures that they experienced along the three-month project of planning and preparation, this allowed our students to develop a growth mindset that that enabled them to come up with solutions when trouble came their way.

St Peter’s College is very proud to offer Dance and Movement Studies as a subject to our students. It is the exception rather than the rule for a co-ed school to offer this. Besides two visits to live performances by Joburg Ballet at the Nelson Mandela Theatre, our students were also exposed to dance experiences offered by dancers and choreographers within the profession. In 2022, students participated in Greek Folk Dance, Pantsula (a uniquely South African Dance), West African Dance as well as Meditative Movement. All these activities enrich our students’ exposure to different dance forms and build their confidence as performers.

The St Peter’s College English Department endeavours to prepare our students for the digital spaces they will be exposed to in their professional careers. As a result, the Grade 8 and 9 curricula seamlessly integrates the required academic content together with technology.

In Grade 10 Physical Science, we made use of the Book Creator Application to create electronic textbooks for the students. These eBooks allow for the incorporation of embedded content such as videos, as well as links to exercises and memorandums. The goal was to create a comprehensive set of notes for the students that would allow for updates. The eBook also provides students with one collated platform of all the activities and memoranda from the section. In 2023, the goal is to expand on the eBook that was created and create a library of books covering all of the sections in Grade 10. The downloading of a version of the book that will allow for students to add their own personal notes and worked examples will also form part of the use of the application in 2023.

Another example is the use of Book Creator. The Grade 8 and 9 students were shown an example of a ubiquitous marketing strategy that did not make use of the Cinematic Technique as described by the curriculum. Our students were tasked with creating their own marketing campaign using the correct Cinematic content. Students were placed in groups and then asked to market the best aspects of our school to the community. Our students used Cinematic Technique to drive the photography they would use in the campaign. They then uploaded their work to Book Creator. Book Creator is an app which allows the user to create novels, comics, pamphlets, marketing texts and stories using a digital platform. As a result, our students were able to use Cinematic Technique together with a digital platform to produce a new text.

In the morning of my life

I shall look to the sunrise, At a moment in my life

When the world is new, And the blessing I shall ask Is that God will grant me, To be brave and strong and true, And to fill the world with love My whole life through.

And to fill the world with love And to fill the world with love And to fill the world with love My whole life through.

In the noontime of my life

I shall look to the sunshine. At a moment in my life when the sky is blue, And the blessing I shall ask will Remain unchanging

To be brave and strong and true, And to fill the world with love My whole life through

And to fill the world with love

And to fill the world with love And to fill the world with love My whole life through.

In the evening of my life

I shall look to the sunset, At a moment in my life

When the night is due And the question I shall ask Only I can answer

Was I brave and strong and true? Did I fill the world with love My whole life through?

Did I fill the world with love, Did I fill the world with love, Did I fill the world with love, My whole life through
