Classroom behaviour at St Peter's is very good generally speaking. We continue however, to finds ways to ensure students accept their responsibility for meeting their classroom covenants that are based on showing respect for each other. We strive to find ways to teach the lessons of respect and consistency of expectations. This week we began a new classroom behaviour modification program called Secret student. Secret Student is a positive behaviour program that encourages the class members to support each other in meeting the classroom expectations for success. The students do not know who the secret student is and each session the teacher can award one point if the secret student meets classroom expectations. The following day, the teacher can announce who the secret student was if points were gained, otherwise the teacher just says that no points were awarded. At the end of the week points are added and high performing classes are encouraged at assembly. At the end of this term the class with the most points gets a day out at the movies! It would be great if parents could ask their children each day how the class is going and make regular reference to the criteria…. What do we value at St Peter's?
FATHER & SON CAMP
Next weekend 80 dads and sponsors and their sons will attend our ninth annual father son camp at Ewen Maddock Dam. This is a wonderful program that has been well supported over the years by our families. This year a number of senior boys from St Columban's will attend as sponsors for boys who were unable to have fathers attending. I am very appreciative of this support both from the boys and from the College. Thanks again for the male teachers and school officers who have given up their weekend and time with their own families to attend and sponsor boys whose dads are absent. We have a wonderful and very generous staff at Peter's! We'll let you know about our adventure next week!. Click here for more information......
ST PETER'S GIRLS PLAY RUGBY AT SUNCORP STADIUM IN FRONT OF 25,000 PEOPLE
Last Friday evening 10 girls from Grade 6 and 7 played Rugby League at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane in front of 25 000 people. They were excited and nervous but performed wonderfully. The girls represented Women in League on behalf of the ARL and were selected because of their credible performance in a recent carnival.
2014 PREP INTERVIEWS
2014 Prep interviews begin this week. In the past we have had a large number of applicants and many are disappointed when we can't offer them a position. This year we are interviewing the first 100 applicants who meet our criteria and more will be interviewed only if these 100 places are not filled. It is difficult to take up people's time and delay and possibly deny places in other schools because of this schedule involving interviewing such large numbers. Doing things this way will ensure both successful and unsuccessful applicants are informed in an appropriate time period.
JUNIOR DISCO -
'BOOK CHARACTER' Party
The P&F Junior school disco is on this Friday evening. The students are describing their exciting Book Character costumes every lunch time and I'm sure there will be a huge crowd attending on this evening. Please ensure all RSVP notes are returned so the catering can be accurate. Remember that parents are requested to remain on the premises during this event. The P&F will not be responsible for the supervision of your children.
