Remembrance and Rugby

This week was Remembrance. Dr. Evans led a very special service for the whole school community to remember those who died for us. I read the list of servicemen from St Peter’s who lost their lives and we sang and prayed together. Everyone from the three-year-olds in Nursery to our office staff stood together. Bertie played the Last Post. A big deal for a young lad and he did it with aplomb.

It was the big match on Wednesday. The U13s against Blundell’s and I went over to watch along with great support from the parents. My, my it was a wet and slippery ordeal with the boys caked in mud. They kept their determination and focus for the whole match and were overjoyed with the resounding victory of 6 tries to 1. I saw some exceptional tries and was so proud of the whole team. While there I popped in to see the Head, Bart Wielenga who confirmed that three of our Year 8s will be receiving sports scholarships from Blundells following their assessments earlier in the term. Well done to Archie, Taylor and Will. A tremendous achievement against stiff competition.
