A place with a zest for excitement, friendship and fun;
Where learning extends beyond the classroom walls.
A place where we all feel safe and secure;
Where integrity and honesty are highly valued.
A place where we appreciate and celebrate difference;
Where we support each other and learn from mistakes.
A place where we nurture a thirst for learning,
Aspire to brilliance and build resilience.
Just to remind all parents that we are having a very brief AGM for the Friends of St Peter's PTA tomorrow evening at 6.15pm just after Cinema Night starts.

Year 6 Took had the chance to see how Science can be applied in real life today when they took part in a workshop at the Jersey Museum called "Ditch the Dirt". They had a tour round the exhibition 'Jersey Reaches Out – 50 years of Overseas Aid'; raising awareness of how STEM skills can be used to help solve some of the world's global issues, and then had a hands-on practical challenge to make a water filter. Some of the children were interviewed by BBC Radio Jersey.They will be on air between 7 and 9 in the morning so please tune in and listen!

We are hosting a free discussion group for parents this Thursday 18th October between 9.15 and 11.15am in our Parentscope/music room. The theme of the session is "Developing Good Bedtime Routines," and the idea is for parents to have a chance to share ideas, tips and strategies for stress-free bedtimes. This session, for approximately 12 people, will be led by Louisa Coxhall from Parenting Support Services. It is open to any parents, whether or not they have children at St Peter's School. Refreshments will be provided. If you would like to reserve a place, please email email@example.com or ring our school secretary on 481536.
