Last night, it was the Foundation’s absolute pleasure to showcase our new Middle School to those valued donors who have given to us over the past two years. Our guests had the opportunity to talk with and ask questions of our Middle School students, staff and Board members in an intimate setting while enjoying drinks and canapes. Everyone in attendance agreed that the transformation of the building is astounding and the excitement in the room was electric as guests had the opportunity to wander around and admire this new space for our girls.
At the function, our Principal Julia Shea was presented with an invaluable and unique gift brought all the way from China by the grandfather of four of our students, Pingde Han. In China, calligraphy occupies a distinguished position in the field of traditional art. It is not only a means of communication, but also a means of expressing a person’s inner-world in an aesthetic sense. This special piece of art was commissioned by the Han family for the School and was painted by a famous Chinese calligrapher. It says, “The Beautiful St Peter’s Girls’ School”.
After the function, our guests were then given the opportunity to experience the amazing talents of our students by attending the opening night of FAME – The Musical in the Arts Centre.
The generous support of those who have given to the Foundation is absolutely invaluable. We’d like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank those who have given their time, passion, money and/or services to the School.
