Head Students' Welcome

2023 Head Students - Georgie-Rose Boyd and Hayden Waddell

A Welcome Message from Georgie-Rose Boyd,  Our 2023 Head Girl

Living just down the road and passing the campus often, St Peter’s was always a school I dreamed about attending. After lots of convincing, my Dad took me to an open day when I was eight. I immediately fell in love with the infinite space, world-class facilities and outstanding opportunities at St Peters. It was a dream come true to finally start as a Year 7 in 2017. Now in my seventh and final year at St Peter’s, it is an honour to be named as Head Girl for 2023.   

St Peter’s has provided the perfect foundation for me to thrive in all areas of my school life. My teachers have always gone above and beyond to help me excel academically. Encouragement and support from my teachers prompted me to enrol for the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme. This curriculum, which is only offered at St Peter’s within the Waikato region, has given me the chance to explore new concepts which are not included in the NCEA course.  

Outside the classroom, I have loved all of the extracurricular opportunities on offer. My main interest has been in athletics since I started in Year 7. The incredible coaches make the training environment so much fun, and fully support you to achieve whatever goals you have. Additionally, I have enjoyed using the amazing gym facility.  St Peter’s really has everything I could need to reach my sporting goals which makes school life amazing in and out of the classroom.    The most important things to me in 2023 are making new connections in the community and striving to be a role model like the previous Head Girls were role models for me. I am looking forward to leading the school in 2023 along with a great team of Hayden, Madi and Patrick by my side.


A Welcome Message from Hayden Waddell , Our 2023 Head Boy

Starting St Peter’s in Year 9 was a very exciting adventure for me. Having been at my last school for nearly 9 years, I was looking forward to a fresh beginning and the change into a new environment. Upon arriving, I instantly got involved with the sporting and cultural parts of the school, which was a great way to keep doing the activities I loved, I also tried lots of new classes such as Metaltech, and Agriculture, and I can still remember my excitement when I found out that I could take football as a subject! Trying out new sports and subjects as well as cultural activities such as House debating and House music allowed me to meet new people who are still some of my best friends today.

However time certainly does fly by!, I am now in my final year at St Peter’s and can't wait for another great year. It is an honour to be Head Boy and I am excited to be a part of the student leadership team for 2023. This year I hope to get to know lots of new people and to support everyone in “giving it all a go” and enjoying their time in this awesome school.

I wish you all the best of luck for the year ahead.
