Summer term 2024, Week 4

A highlight of my week was watching the U11 girls play cricket on Wednesday afternoon. We played Wellington and put up a good show. The bowling and batting skills have improved greatly and my thanks to our wonderful team of coaches here.  The U11 and U10 boys played Stover and again had a fantastic match. The U13 girls were against Trinity School Teignmouth and also had a great match. 

Year 2 were on the beach this morning; every year goes to the beach at some point in the year. We are so lucky with it on our doorstop. Part of their trip incorporated a visit to the RNLI lifeboat as well as a beach clean.

One of the things that the St Peter’s children do get in comparison to other schools, particularly those who have to share their grounds with the senior schools, is a lot of sport. Once the children are in Year 3, it is one match afternoon, two afternoon games sessions and an hour of PE as well as, of course, the collapsed curriculum on a Friday afternoon where the children jet off to horse riding or sailing or enjoy inflatable fun here onsite. These children are FIT and, as everyone knows, the benefits both physically and mentally are well documented.  

Wakeboarding was enjoyed by the boarders on Tuesday. Mr Johnston was out on our boat and took this picture of them on a beautiful Summer’s evening.

The chess tournament is really hotting up now with some of the finals taking place this week. We introduced a Lower School and an Upper School club as the demand was so great and in the Summer Term we often take chess outside and enjoy the grounds.

Have a wonderful weekend in the sunshine (finally!)

Charlotte Johnston, Head.
