Student leadership opportunities are an important part of life at St Peter's. Meet Charlie and Mirren, our current Head Boy and Head Girl.
A Welcome Message from Charlie King, Our Head Boy
My name is Charlie King and it is my privilege to be Head Boy for 2017. I was born and raised on a thoroughbred stud farm in Tauwhare as the youngest of four children and started my time at St Peter’s as a Year 7 day student in the Prep School.
In Year 10, I became a proud member of Oliphant House. Boarding has allowed me to develop academically while enabling me to be involved in more of what the school has to offer, such as the 1st XV rugby team, the school production and House events. It is the brotherly bonds that we have formed in the House that I cherish most about the past three years.
I see my role as Head Boy as encouraging the growth of school pride and spirit at our cultural and sporting events. I want every student, from the Prep School through to the Senior School, to feel the same pride that I have felt for St Peter’s since my early days.
Charlie, Head Boy
St Peter’s offers strong friendships and amazing opportunities that lead to great experiences. What stands out is the culture of success, and the support shown by teachers and students, allowing everyone to strive for their own idea of success. This culture has allowed me to grow as a student and I am confident it will help me in the future when I look to study Economics at university.
I encourage you to explore the school website and its insight into life at St Peter’s. I also invite you to contact us for a guided tour, to give you a genuine sense of the strength of our community.
A Welcome Message from Mirren Tye, Our Head Girl
Hello, my name is Mirren Tye and I am honoured to be the 2017 Head Girl of St Peter’s. I began my journey at St Peter's five years ago in Year 9, following in the footsteps of both my elder sister and my father. I grew up on a stud farm outside of Tirau with my parents, Seonaid and Russell, and two sisters, Lauren and Grace. Grace is currently a Year 11 student at St Peter’s.
Coming from a small primary and intermediate school, I was at first overwhelmed by the world-class campus and endless opportunities I was soon to have at my fingertips. However, once I stepped through the gates on that first day, all those years ago, I never looked back. The welcoming and friendly nature of our staff rubs off onto the student body and creates an extremely positive and welcoming learning environment for all.
Mirren, Head Girl
After four years as a day student, I began my boarding life this year. I have been fully immersed in the St Peter's community and have seen the school from all angles. This community has high expectations, upheld by both the students and staff. We strive to achieve excellence, whether this be sporting, cultural or academic.
We are also supportive, encouraging and motivating and show a huge amount of spirit and pride. This spirit lives on through all aspects of St Peter's life. It plays a key role in the obvious pride that comes with being a St Peter's student and is one of the things that gives us a prestigious reputation.
I hope you thoroughly enjoy exploring our website and I encourage you to come and visit our wonderful campus. See for yourself the spirit that is evident in each St Peter's student.
