We have a number of lost property items which have not been claimed. Most of these items are not marked, and parents are asked to please visit the lost property room (situated in the laundry) to identify their child’s items that may have been misplaced. Lost property that is not collected by the end of the term will be placed in the swop shop. Please ensure that your child’s property is clearly marked.
TUESDAY IS RECYCLING DAY !
Please don’t forget to send the following items for our recycling programme: newspapers, old magazines, plastic bottles and tins. For safety reasons, we would like to discourage parents from sending any glass to school. Our day for recycling is Tuesday.
We have just come from a Mother’s Day weekend and I was extremely impressed by the support shown at the Botanical Gardens on Sunday. In addition to the glorious weather we had on the day, moms were spoilt with lots of goodies from the children. St Peter’s had organised suitable activities such as card making, pot planting, etc. and the children of Nelspruit took advantage of this and did special things for their moms.
We sincerely thank all those parents who came out to help or just to enjoy the day out in the park. It was really wonderful to see you all out there. Keep it up!

Our Drum Majorettes have shown great teamwork and commitment over the past few weeks. They attended practice daily and gave up their weekends and breaks in order to perfect their sequence. They put on two excellent performances at the Mother’s Day concert on Sunday. The girls looked immaculate in their uniforms – they did us all proud. Well done girls.
We send a special thank you to Miss Ahisha Mabiletsa who helped the Drum Majorettes and joined in the sequence when one of the girls could no longer attend. We also express a huge thank you to Miss Glass and Mrs Anita Shultz who put in hours of work to get the girls ready for the Mother’s Day concert.
We remind all parents that the blue rain jacket is to be worn on rainy days only. It may not substitute the tracksuit top and is not part of the daily uniform.
St Peter’s is a proudly South African school. To this end, we have decided to pledge our support to the Pumas Rugby Team who are based in Nelspruit. They will be playing in the Vodacom Cup final at Mbombela Stadium on Friday 17th May at 19:10. The children may come dressed in pink (if they wish) for our Civvies Day on Friday. The cost is R5 per child and we encourage all to participate.
We invite all parents (and grandparents) to join us for our Music Evening on Friday 24th May at 18:30 in the school hall. The Music Evening is free of charge and parents will be treated to a number of beautiful singing performances; including combined items by our choir and that of Saheti School (from Johannesburg).
A group of moms meet at school every Thursday (13:00 – 13:30) to pray together.
Anyone is welcome to join this group and if you require further information, please contact Mrs Shongwe on 079 367 5134 or Mrs Gilday on 013 741 1021.
The Contented Fisherman
A very wealthy, hardworking owner of a large group of chain stores happened to be on his way to yet another meeting when he stopped to buy a cup of coffee at a fast food outlet next to the dockyards. He was a little disturbed to see an idle fisherman relaxing next to his old boat, in the middle of the day, staring out into the distance.
“Why are you not out catching fish?” he enquired of the fisherman.
The fisherman replied: “I have caught enough fish for today.”
The business man was horrified and said, somewhat crossly, “Well, why don’t you go out and catch some more and with the extra money you make, you can sell this old boat and buy yourself a bigger, more modern one!”
“Then what would I do?” asked the surprised fisherman.
“Then you could catch more fish, make more money and own a whole fleet of fishing boats,” said the impatient businessman.
“Ok, and when I have all these boats, what would I do then?” asked the fisherman seriously.
“Well, then you could sit down, relax and enjoy life,” replied the businessman.
“But that’s exactly what I’m doing now!” said the fisherman, gazing contentedly out to sea.
I wish you all a contented week and hope to see you at our forthcoming events.
