St Peter’s Father Figures

The St Peter’s Father Figures is about engaging the Father Figures in our school. There’s evidence to say that there is a strong influence on a child’s academic achievement, social success, health and well-being and attitude towards learning when fathers are involved. This can come about at a school level when there is consistent discussion and action with the child where both parents are working in collaboration with the school, and teachers, in regards to expectations, policies and procedures.

We welcome all Father Figures in our school community to be part of any initiatives rolled out during the year, and we look forward to meeting you all.

The initiative will be led by members of the Dads of St Peter’s Committee with the aim to promote health and well-being, and to engage the parents in our community, especially all father figures, to participate with their child in a variety of fun running activities. This includes relays, games and a circuit. We strongly encourage all parents to stay and participate in the activities as an opportunity to spend quality time with your child. Should you be unable to stay, students will be supervised by our dedicated staff who will be assisting on the day.

Further Information:

– The Run Club will be conducted at Grand Prom each Thursday morning from Week 5-10, starting at 7:45am. Students and parents can arrive and join in at any time.
– Running Club is for everyone from Kindy – Year 6
– Students who participate in the Run Club are permitted to wear their Sports uniform for the duration of the day.
– At the end of each session, students will continually run laps of a circuit, with each lap recorded. These laps will be tallied and will go towards a class total. The more students running, the more laps can be achieved!
– Students will be walked back to school by the teachers for an 8:30am start.
