JACOB TAN 2W
Jacob, I am delighted to name you as the very first 2019 Junior Person of the Week!
We have started our new school year with a new Principal who has asked us to show her exactly how everyone at
St Peter’s Primary School lives out our TRUE values. Jacob, I believe you are one of the brightest shining examples of someone who lives the TRUE values each and every day in your words, actions and interactions with others.
Jacob, I can always TRUST you to be ready. Ready to listen, ready to follow instructions and ready to learn. You can always be trusted to follow the school rules, in the classroom at recess, lunch, before and after school.
You show RESPECT, Jacob, by looking after yourself and your belongings. You are always in control of your words and actions and have your belongings suitably packed away until they are needed. You are respectful to your peers by speaking kindly to them and offering help when needed.
Jacob, you display UNITY each day in our classroom. Often, when you have completed your own tasks, you can be seen moving around our classroom offering to help others who may need it. You do this in such a kind and courteous manner without disturbing the students who are working.
I believe EXCELLENCE is your forte! Jacob, you are focused and dedicated to producing the best work you possibly can in every task. I have been blown away already by your determination to hand in outstanding work and can tell that, with this high level of effort, you are going to excel in Year Two.
Jacob, we are truly blessed to be able to follow your example in Year Two White this year.
Congratulations on being the Junior Person of the Week!

JEMMA TRAN 6B
Quiet achievers are intelligent, introverted and industrious. Famous quiet achievers include Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein, Dr Seuss and Bill Gates. They are the person who when they’re given a job, they get it done. They don’t ask for praise and they aren’t loud about their achievements. They are great listeners, they are quality friends and more importantly they are compassionate leaders. All these traits and more are YOU in a nutshell, Jemma. No longer can you fly under the radar! The secret is out!
It is now your time to be in the spotlight and for all of St Peter’s to acknowledge you for who you truly are; A kind, compassionate leader who reflects the TRUE values of our school in every single thing you do.
You are a shining star of 6B and a very worthy winner of our Senior Person of the Week. Congratulations!
