Person of the Week – 08/11/19
LACHLAN DOWSON 2M
Lachy, you are a superhero! Not an ordinary superhero, but a TRUE superhero. You are a trustworthy and respectful student who unites his peers and always strives for excellence. Usually superheros wear capes or costumes, but you don’t need to wear anything like that because your smile and personality are enough.
Batman once said, “It’s not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me,” and this is very true for you. Actions speak louder than words and Lachy, your TRUE actions are a testament to your character.
Every time you walk through the 2M classroom door, the feeling of the classroom changes. Your smile brightens up the room and your wonderful sense of humour turns even the biggest frown around, with everyone you meet catching your infectious smile. You enter the classroom ready to tackle whatever challenges you may face and no matter what you never give up!
One of your many super powers is the ability to mind read. Before someone even asks for help, you swoop into action offering assistance and when your work is done, you simply go about your own work never seeking praise or recognition.
Your kindness and compassion are truly one of your greatest assets. You are polite in all your interactions, both with your peers and teachers and you always make sure you say please and thank you.
Lachy, you are a shining star and we are so lucky and blessed to have you in 2M. Keep being a TRUE superhero and never let anybody dull your shine.
Congratulations on being named the Junior Person of the Week!
ELLA SCRIMGEOUR 6W
Mother Teresa once said, ‘Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.’ This is true for you Ella, as you are a bubbly spirit with a kind and loving heart. You never falter to make us smile in 6 White. Your kindness radiates from you daily and echoes through our classroom. I often catch you doing good deeds for others without seeking recognition and you put your own needs aside in order to ensure others needs are met.
You truly embody our TRUE values here as St Peter’s as you work your socks off to reach your full potential. You aren’t afraid to seek assistance when you need it or share your ideas aloud.
You show true resilience when faced with a challenge as you work through it to reach your end goal.
Ella, you are the kind of student who makes St Peter’s an inviting and happy place to be. Keep pushing beyond your limits, keep spreading kindness wherever you go and above all keep being the Ella we all know and love!
Congratulations on being the Senior Person of the Week!

ARIE BARBARO 1M
Taking action and being proactive are two of the most important ingredients to achieving success. Arie, your success comes from what you give. You give your time, your talents and your friendship to your peers and teachers and this is what makes you a standout in our community. The great thing about how you give to others is that you do it anytime and anywhere without seeking recognition. You simply just think about others and how you can help them.
Arie, you live and breathe the St Peter’s TRUE values each day. You show TRUST in your continuous honesty. You show RESPECT in the way you meet, greet and treat others. You show UNITY by working together to achieve a common goal, and finally, you show EXCELLENCE by striving to achieve your best.
Right attitudes produce right actions and your attitude towards school life is what makes a big difference in our school.
Arie, it has been a pleasure to see your actions and attitude inspire our community and you are a truly deserving recipient of Junior Person of the Week!
MOLLY ZAGAR 4M
Changing schools is never easy. As Socrates states, ‘The secret of change is to focus all your energy on building the new and starting over’. Molly, since joining the St Peter’s community this year, you have consistently displayed excellent learning qualities and admirable personal traits that have allowed you to fit seamlessly into our community, and, stand out as a considerate and thoughtful young lady. Your endearing personality and genuine kindness and connection with others make you an admired and respected class member.
Molly, every morning without fail, you come straight to me with a transmissible smile, and ask me how I am going, before telling me your news. I look forward to the first day of each month as you give me a pinch and a punch before dashing off to your working area!
Molly, your positive attitude, perseverance and determination are an example for all to follow. You participate passionately in all classroom activities and are continually developing new skills and knowledge through your willingness to have a go and accept the challenges that come your way.
Molly, you ask questions to clarify your understandings, and question ideas and concepts with a loving heart. You can be relied upon to respond sensibly in any situation and always display impeccable manners.
Molly, it is great to see the way in which you are willing to put the needs of others before your own and are always proactive in ensuring justice is done, without seeking recognition. You display a grace-filled attitude towards your peers and are a great team member.
We are blessed to have you in our Year 4 classroom and our school community. Congratulations on being named as our Senior Person of the Week!

On Sunday 10 November, the St Thomas Aquinas School Class of 1975-79 celebrated 40 years since graduation. Some had travelled from the South West, and even the UK to be there. Candles were lit to acknowledge those who could not attend, and remember classmates who had passed away.
Everyone enjoyed strolling through the school, reminiscing and renewing old friendships.
