Student Leaders' Welcome

Meet Jack and Georgie

Student leadership opportunities are an important part of life at St Peter’s. Meet Jack and Georgie, our current Head Boy and Head Girl.

A Welcome Message from Jack Douglas, Our Head Boy

My name is Jack Douglas and I am honoured to be Head Boy for 2018. I was born in Switzerland and have family connections all over the world, but I am happy to have been raised in Cambridge for the most part of my childhood.

I began my involvement with St Peter’s 11 years ago when my dad became House Director of Morris House. Living on site for 4 years before I actually began as a student really gave me a sense of not only the school spirit, but the genuine environment that we have. I really could not wait to properly be a part of it.

My first day as a Year 7 student was a glorious one. Although the blazers and ties were something completely new to me, I felt right at home, and I know that all my classmates did as well. Up until this year I have been a day student, but I have moved into Broadhurst House for my final year. This has allowed me to, again, see behind the scenes of the school and I am lucky to be able to experience that again.

St Peter’s has practically raised me, and with a philosophy of Body, Mind and Spirit, I feel that once I leave school I will be well prepared for all challenges life throws at me

Jack, Head Boy

I see my role as Head Boy as someone who is able to make all students and teachers look forward to coming to St Peter’s. I want to enhance the community and keep growing the already strong school spirit that exists and demonstrate Body, Mind and Spirit on a regular basis. I have had such a great experience with St Peter’s over the last 11 years, and I want every student to enjoy their time here as much as I have.

I think to really get an idea of why St Peter’s is such a great school, you need to come in and see it for yourself. Yes we have several world class facilities, but the strong connections between students and staff, and the sense of belonging you get is second to none. St Peter’s has practically raised me, and with a philosophy of Body, Mind and Spirit, I feel that once I leave school I will be well prepared for all challenges life throws at me.

A Welcome Message from Georgie Edgecome, Our Head Girl

It is my pleasure to introduce myself as Head Girl for 2018. My Name is Georgie Edgecombe.

I was born in New Zealand, but spent the first three and a half years of my life living in Singapore. I began my St Peter’s journey as a year nine day student, after attending Rotouna for my primary years and Southwell School for intermediate. Driving through the St Peter’s gates for the first time in 2014 was defining and I have never looked back. 

The St Peter’s community fosters its students into becoming well rounded people and supports us to become the best that we can possibly be

Georgie, Head Girl

For me, St Peter’s has been about creating new relationships and friendships, building connections, being challenged, being questioned and achieving beyond my own expectations.

Throughout my journey, I have been supported and encouraged to be the best version of myself. Over the past four years, St Peter’s has offered me an endless amount of opportunities which have allowed me to make lifelong memories and have unforgettable experiences.

The St Peter’s community fosters its students into becoming well rounded people and supports us to become the best that we can possibly be. Strong principals of body, mind and spirit are instilled in all of the students and staff here at St Peter’s, and that is why I believe excellence is achieved in all aspects of school life, whether it be in the classroom, on the stage or on the sporting fields.

It is extremely special to be a part of a school that has so much spirit and pride and I hope to continue to encourage that throughout the rest of my time here. I hope to inspire and influence others to make the most of the world of opportunities that are at our fingertips and take hold of everything that St Peter’s has to offer.

Georgie
