Congratulations to Knights for coming first, Commodore second place, Freeman third and Boomer fourth. Thank you to all the organisers, helpers (students, staff and parents) and volunteers on the day. Thank you to the Victor Harbor High School Yr 8 and 10 students, mentored by teacher Simon Harris, who assisted beautifully again this year. We are very grateful for this ongoing, outstanding support. Also, thanks to Investigator School for allowing Ellie and Maggie to attend to support a JP class and run events. Congratulations once again to our amazing House Captains who have done a fantastic job all term and on the day. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves, despite the windy conditions.

Student Leadership Day

The 2019 House Captains and Yr 3-7 SRC were involved in a Student Leadership Day held at PEPS on Friday Term 1 Week 5, the 1st of March 2019. Trina, Karen, Kate and Brenton along with guest speaker, Ashley Manuel from Growing With Gratitude, held presentations, and ran workshops and team building activities with the students. The themes of the day were focussing on gratitude, resilience, self belief, ownership, empathy, appreciating others and the skill of reframing. The students then set goals to help them be effective leaders who “make a positive difference” to PEPS in 2019.

By all accounts, the students really enjoyed this opportunity and demonstrated a lot of gratitude towards Ashley and the PEPS staff who organised and ran the day.
