On Tuesday 18th June, eight students forming two teams represented St Peter’s at the annual Mathematical Association of Victoria, Maths Games Day held at Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School.  This was an opportunity for students to develop their mathematical talents and thinking skills whilst competing against students from other schools. The students in Team 1 were: Tyler, Oliver, Tiana and Gemma.  The students in Team 2 were: Jessika, Sophia, Dion and Frances. The day began with problem solving questions where each team needed to work cooperatively to find the answers. Next, there were challenges of playing individual games against other students. The last part of the day comprised of engaging probability games. Our students performed well and enjoyed the day. 

      Congratulations to both teams for their efforts and their support for each other.

UMNOS Showcase - University of Melbourne Network of Schools

Recently St. Peters celebrated their 3 year involvement in the UMNOS Project. This project involved working with a Network of Schools through professional development at Melbourne University to improve student’s growth in READING.

Using current research the teachers at St. Peter’s have worked collaboratively to gain a consistent approach from Prep - Year 6 to improve students' reading skills. Research tells us that  independent reading is the leading indicator in achievement for comprehension, vocabulary, spelling and writing. The more children read the more they will grow. Please view our recent showcase video that was presented at The Melbourne Exhibition Centre to showcase the impact we have made on the teaching and learning of reading at St. Peter’s.

This year's Art Expo, a roaring success for our school community

Art Show– How Magnificent!

(Extract from our Newsletter)

My very warmest congratulations to the Year 6s for preparing and hosting the magnificent St Peter’s Art Show on Tuesday night! With the guidance and support of Anne Tadinac and their dedicated teachers, Elise Monaghan, Alex Mulkearns and Ashleigh Mastin, the children have excelled in showing their sound organisational skills, their spirited teamwork and their strong sense of responsibility. I must also admit to emitting a big ‘WOW!’ at seeing the end product of all the amazing art work around our school. Art celebrates joy, inspiration, creativity and it is a vivid expression of all that life encompasses. With art we experience life more richly and fully. Well done to all our talented students and teachers who have worked hard and produced such engaging pieces! Having Brad Blaze return was a treat and watching him work was awe inspiring. Lastly, thank you to all families who were able to attend yesterday. All the positive feedback given to the Year 6 hosts, teachers and myself was very much appreciated!
