Week 3 – Trinity term 2021

Now that we have had Wren House Day and the Harefield Run, we can announce the winners of our Land’s End to John O’Groats whole school challenge. An
enormous well done to all families and pupils took part, from Reception to Year 8. We had over 80 participants signed on Strava and over 110 activities
completed (run/cycle/swim). We covered 2814km in 11 days and, together, we raised £515 for our school charity, YoungMinds. Amazing! We will definitely be
doing another challenge like this again.

Many congratulations indeed to the following families. Prizes will be awarded on Monday.
Winners
3rd Team Reid Y7 (227km)
2nd Team Kelly Y2/4 (278km)
1st Team Giltsoff Y3 (360km)
Three House points to every pupil who participated.

This was a tremendous example of a whole school spirit and community event, for which St Peter’s is famous for, and also amazed us with how much outdoor activity St Peter’s families do just on an average weekend: kayaking, swimming, surfing, sailing, mountaineering, cycling. I love how much our families
embrace adventure.

We are looking forward to welcoming a professional photographer onsite on Tuesday 11 May and would be grateful if all pupils could come to school wearing full school uniform on this day. Sports kit can be brought in separately if your child has sport on a Tuesday. Thank you for your support with this.

Progress is finally being made on the blasted pool. Luckily, it has been freezing, so it has not been missed too much. We will let you know when swimming can take place.

And so, I ask you to join us as we reflect on another lovely week at St Peter’s, to think how lucky we are, to hold our family close and recognise and think about, as we increasingly ‘unlock’ and start to venture out and fill up our empty calendars, what it is that really matters.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.
