Outstanding Reception for Newest Saints Girls
The transition journey for our ELC girls entering Mid-Year Reception next term continues in earnest, creating a buzz on campus. In a special tradition at St Peter’s Girls, they will be officially welcomed to the ‘big school’ during Monday’s Hat Ceremony. It is an important occasion to celebrate the next step in their education.
Our staff place enormous emphasis on ensuring a smooth transition, not just from ELC to Reception, but across all of our Sub-Schools. Our newest Saints Girls have loved their transition visits and the opportunity to spend a few weeks getting comfortable with their new environment. They are confident, excited and ready to start school next term! Here’s a snippet of their amazing progress:
From the Director of Teaching and Learning
This week, our Year 10 students and our Year 11 SACE students have completed their mid-year exams. With barely any time to catch breath, they will then be into the subject selection process. For Year 11 SACE students, their pathway into Year 12 may already be clear in their minds, or there may be a couple of decisions still to be made. For the Year 10 students, the decisions are potentially bigger and more complex. They are fortunate that we are able to offer two distinct programs at St Peter’s Girls, the IB Diploma and the SACE. Last week, they heard about the IB programme from Carolyn Farr, our IB Coordinator, and about the SACE program from Meredith Beck, our SACE Coordinator. In addition, they had an opportunity to pose questions to a panel of Year 11 and 12 girls encompassing both SACE and IB students. Our Year 9 students will also be making tough elective choices as they look ahead to their first senior year.
When making difficult decisions, gathering as much relevant information as possible is important. On top of the sessions mentioned above, our students (and parents) should be reading through the Curriculum Handbook, talking to their teachers and, where appropriate, undertaking some research into options beyond school. The Subject Expo on Thursday 26 July is another opportunity to gather information and ask questions.
The upcoming holidays provide an opportunity to relax, reflect, have fun and take stock. As the Brazilian novelist Paolo Coelho once wrote: “It’s a good idea always to do something relaxing prior to making an important decision in your life.” Enjoy the last week of Term 2 (especially the Year 10s who will be experiencing new things on work placements) and enjoy the holidays!

Food for Thought – Kennion Service Learning
As part of Kennion’s House charity KickStart for Kids, 10 Kennion have been travelling to Flinders Park Primary School each fortnight to take part in the breakfast program. Last Thursday, Olivia, Kate, Matilda and I had the opportunity to prepare pancakes, cheese toasties, toast, cereal, yoghurt and fruit for the children. The Breakfast Program is set up to ensure the students are fed before their school day.
Apart from seeing the smiles on the students’ faces as they ate the pancakes, we all really enjoyed chatting to the kids and talking to them about school, sport and their families. One little girl shared her favourite dance moves with us, which made us all smile. KickStart for Kids is such a great charity and our Year 10 Home Group is extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to help other students and make a small, but positive difference in their lives.

Year 8s in Driverless Car Hot Seat
On Thursday 19 June, 8DAM and 8MGR visited the Tonsley Innovation Centre at Flinders University. The excursion related to their Digital Technologies topic on Driverless Cars. There, we discovered how the centre supports budding entrepreneurs and innovators. We listened to a presentation from Roger from Aurrigo, a local company developing driverless car technology. We also got to sit inside ‘Pod’, an on-campus driverless car which travels at 12km/hour.
We visited the Rehabilitation and Motion Analysis Lab where we learnt how to use motion sensors to detect and capture movement like what is used in movies and video games. Students have requested a future visit to develop their own version of ‘Just Dance’.
Our second lab visit was to learn about a driverless boat developed at the centre which can be used to monitor erosion on our beaches and in search and rescue missions. By far the highlight of the excursion was our ride on a driverless bus. It is programmed to stop and pick-up passengers and drive around a loop of the Tonsley Campus. According to students (and teachers) it was “so cool”.

Middle School Arts Showcase
Our Middle School students and teachers have been working very hard in their Arts classes this term, busily preparing for ARTScollab.
On Wednesday 27 June, students involved in Music, Dance, Drama or Visual Arts will showcase their learning in a night of creativity, collaboration and fun. Performance is an extremely important aspect of the Arts curriculum, giving students an opportunity to share their achievements, express themselves in an alternate way and engage with a live audience. Students soon learn to appreciate the effort, training and practice that occurs before finally reaching the point of performance.
Walk into the Arts Centre at any given lunchtime at the moment and you will find girls working together to achieve a common goal: preparing their performance pieces.
The confidence, creativity and problem-solving skills that The Arts provide are why it is such a valuable subject area for developing the whole child.
“The Arts aren’t just important because they improve Maths scores. They are important because they speak to parts of children’s being which are otherwise untouched” – Sir Ken Robinson, author and international advisor on education in The Arts
I hope to see many families and friends coming along to support their daughter’s Arts journey at ARTScollab. The foyer will be open from 7pm, with the show starting at 7.30pm.

Mentors Look to the Futures
The Futures Entrepreneurship Program is an exciting initiative that champions growth, creativity, student agency and innovation. All students in Years 7 and 8 have a double lesson each week, in a non-graded setting, where they have the opportunity to form companies that develop a service, action or product as a solution to problems worth solving. The outstanding teaching team, known as studio mentors, encourage authentic risk-taking, creativity, collaboration, self-management, prototyping, failing well and the chance to learn from mistakes or the unavoidable obstacles along the entrepreneurial journey.
Having introduced the girls to the entrepreneurial mindset, explored empathising and identified problems worth solving, we were lucky enough to connect our student companies with some leading industry professionals with the support of Foundation Manager Melissa Westgate and Old Scholar Liaison Megan McCormack. Our industry mentors met this week with the companies they have graciously agreed to support with feedback and encouragement, as the students navigate the ideation and prototyping stages of development. All girls agreed the feedback was invaluable and they are sincerely looking forward to connecting with their industry mentors during their next visit at the start of Term 3.
If entrepreneurship refers to an individual’s ability to turn ideas into action, we hold this as a key competence for all. We are therefore incredibly grateful for this important connection to the industries the girls are exploring, and the willingness of mentors to share their expertise and experience. We look forward to each week of real-world learning and anticipate the further value these industry mentors will bring to the program.

Children Delight in Nature
On Thursday 7 June, Erica and Nara from Nature Play SA visited the Reception girls to help explore our Term 2 central idea, ‘We experience and learn about the world using our senses.” The girls participated in a multisensory natural elements learning experience, providing them an opportunity to discover, create and design using natural elements of our earth.
They completed three mini workshops in small groups: loose parts, sensory play and seed bombs.
“We can hear birds and birds are nature.” – Charlotte D
“Living things need air.” – Sophie B
“Seeds can grow into plants.” – Aurelia
The girls thoroughly enjoyed expressing themselves creatively, using problem-solving skills, building resilience and persistence, all whilst engaging their five senses.

Junior Orchestra Extremely Well Composed
On Wednesday, we were lucky to have composer Karen de Nardi drop in to work with our Junior Orchestra on her composition Heroes and Villains. Karen has published many of her works, and although well-known for her string compositions, she is also a talented violist.
It was wonderful to have her explain to our junior musicians the story behind her composition, her vision for this piece, as well as help perfect the technical considerations needed to capture the contrasting moods of this exciting composition.

Totally 80s Night was Totally Awesome
What an amazing time we had at our Totally 80s night on Saturday 16 June in the Arts Centre! It was a sea of fluoro and shoulder pads, with so many laughs and lots of fun on the dance floor busting moves to all the old 80s dance floor fillers.
One of the hits of the night was the photo booth, kindly sponsored by parent Kylie Austin from City Skin Cosmetic Clinic.
A huge thank you to all our volunteers, sponsors and a massive shout out to our quiz master and parent Lorraine Scarr who did a fabulous job organising the trivia side of the evening.
Thank you to all who attended and for your continuous support of the P&F.

Sports Uniform Reminder
Currently, a number of students are continuing to wear outdated PE/Sports uniform items including culottes and polo tops. This clothing has not been stocked in the School Shop for five years and is not part of our current uniform guidelines. Please ensure your daughter is not wearing these items at the commencement of Term 3. We thank you for your support in this matter.
AFL – (Aussie Rules)
Open – Saints 1.0 = 6 defeated by Seymour 2.4 = 16
The Open A football team had their first loss to Seymour, who defeated Saints by 10 points. Olivia Goldsmith kicked the only goal and score for the game. The defence were the best players, consistently playing a tight game and putting great pressure on Seymour. Ebony-Jade Nash-Smith and Lulu Tierney were best on ground with Ebony-Jade playing a strong game in full back, always defending the close goals. Thandi Murada played another good game, bringing the ball down and creating tight pressure throughout the mid-field. – Holly Cunningham (Captain)
Middle – Saints 0.1 = 1 defeated by Seymour 6.6 = 42
Congratulations to all of our players for showing great sportsmanship after playing two very good schools this week. Saints won two out of five matches. However, Wilderness is a strong badminton school, so well done to all girls for still showing great skills on the court regardless of whether their match was won or lost. – Cate Neale (Co-Captain)

Best players: Gloria Gao and Amy Li
A2 – Saints 3 defeated by Seymour 3

Open A – Saints 0 defeated by Walford 1
The girls played a terrific game with the score not representing the motivation and persistence they demonstrated today. Walford put a lot of pressure on our defence, although we consistently matched this in our attack with multiple shots at goal but unfortunately without any outcomes. The team spirit and sportsmanship demonstrated today was exceptional and something to be proud of, especially as this game was played as part of the Saints-Walford intercol. I have no doubt that when we face Walford again we can come back stronger and more determined to obtain a well-deserved win and hopefully take out the overall shield again this year! – Carla Lawrence (Captain)
Open B – Saints 1 defeated by Pembroke 2
Saints Girls played Pembroke Cs resulting in a 2-1 loss. Pembroke scored two goals early within the first half as Saints took a while to fully get set up and into the game. During the second half, Bridgette scored an outstanding goal against Pembroke’s skilful goalie. Saints had a minimum of 10 shots on goal, most of which this goalie saved and she was by far their best player. Overall, Saints were a stronger side, just unable to convert during this game. – Tash Hammond (Coach)
Under 18 – Saints 18 defeated Burnside 13
This week’s game really challenged our team to put in the energy and competitiveness required to win. Despite Burnside scoring the first few goals, we determinedly fought our way to success, finishing the game 4 goals up. Burnside were unable to match Saints’ fast ground speed and cohesiveness. Special mention to Chelsea Walls (Year 10), Ellie Anderson (Year 10) and goalie Izzy Norman (Year 10) who put up an outstanding fight to help the team win – well done! The whole team, however, worked inclusively, with everyone putting in a great deal of effort. We will continue to work on some areas of our game-play that need some improvement. – Sophie Auricht (Captain)
Under 13 – Saints 7 defeated by Glenelg 9
It was a very cold morning but the girls were eager to play Glenelg once again. In defence, Maddy Lisle (Year 7) and Lucy Schirripa (Year 7) got some great groundballs causing turnovers. Mathilda Thomas (Year 6) used her speed to get away from her player and lead to the ball. In addition, Dani Cox (Year 6) dodged well in attack to score needed goals. At half time, the girls were down by one goal and needed to work on throwing the ball to girls who were away from their defender. Jenna Maione (Year 6) fought hard in centre whilst Phoebe Black (Year 7) played some great defence making the opposition drop the ball. Ashlyn May (Year 6) also did well in defence by sliding to the girl with the ball. Zoe Pool (Year 6) and Alannah Godfrey (Year 5) were our goalies for this week. The girls played much better compared with the last time we played Glenelg. Goal scorers were Dani (5) and Mathilda (2). Best players were Alannah, Dani, Jenna and Maddy. – Lucy Martin (Coach)
Under 11 – Saints 8 drew with East Torrens/Payneham 8
The team fought very hard in cold and wet conditions which made me very proud. Although ETP had many older girls, Saints dominated, winning ground balls and had several nearly completed passes which shows the whole team is continually improving. Our latest players Amelia Lively and Claris Stolcman (both Year 2) have caught on to the strategy of the game. In attack Serae Stolcman (Year 4) backed up behind the goal to give the team a second chance at scoring. The girls who have played before led the charge down the field and were always ready for forward passes. Goal scorers were Sophie Lively (4), Savannah Walls (3) and Ella Pearce (1).
– Courtney Tasker (Coach)
Open A – Saints 34 defeated by Seymour 50
Saints demonstrated great team effort and perseverance throughout the game. We kept the score close until mid-way through the third quarter when Seymour’s defensive pressure challenged every pass down the court, forcing us high and wide. No matter what Seymour did on court, each Saints player was patient in bringing the ball out of defence and working in our goal third to get to the circle edge. Statistically speaking, Saints played very well but due to Seymour’s vigilant pressure it was difficult for the score to reflect how all players performed. Hannah Freeman was best on court as her constant defensive pressure was effective, sometimes causing errors in Seymour’s plays. Second best was Sivi Sivasuthan as her listening on court and to the Coach’s requests have developed and improved which was shown in her circle movement and transitions across the court. Nicolette Miller was the third best as her second efforts in the circle created space for Sivi and her re-offering decreased the feeders’ job. Great game girls. – Ebony-Jade Nash-Smith
Open B – Saints 21 defeated by Seymour 50
The Open B team this week showed incredible encouragement and support to each other throughout the entire game. Despite losing, the girls played a great game and were determined to improve their performance since the last game we played against Seymour in the trial match. All the girls showed the skills we had been working on in the previous trainings and put them to the test. It was a good game and we hope to keep improving our fitness and consistency throughout the season. – Lulu Tierney
Open C – Saints 26 defeated by Seymour 55
Although it was a tough game, the Open Cs tried their best in all four quarters and were able to narrow the margin down in the third quarter. Best player was awarded to Tilly McCormack who did an excellent job in defending Seymour’s goals. A big well done to Jessica Wishart and Sarah Matheson who shot some brilliant goals throughout the game. – Molly Lucas
Open D – Saints 3 defeated by Seymour 53
We played a tough game with great enthusiasm. We practised the plays we learnt in training, kept up team spirit and gave our best right through, which began to show in the last quarter when our defensive strategies were effective, only allowing them to score 5 goals. We played well together as a team and now know the areas we need to focus on to improve. – Ammi Yagnik
Open E – Saints 34 defeated Westminster 28
Saints’ Year 12 social team made a strong comeback this week beating Westminster. All girls played with enthusiasm and spirit despite the terrible weather conditions. A special mention to Chanel Stefani for her excellent work in defence and Lucy Cox for her always entertaining intercepts. – India Deere
Year 10C – Saints 23 defeated Wilderness 22
The 10Cs used a lot of team work and showed great determination to win against Wilderness by 1 goal. This game was especially good with a lot of the girls playing exceptionally well and showing off the skills we learnt in training. Everyone stayed focused and played a great game. – Imogen Parkinson
Year 9A – Saints 15 defeated by Seymour 28
As conditions weren’t ideal for our style of game, it made it difficult for our girls to get into a rhythm. Some excellent efforts made by the team but a couple of players stood out with solid defence. Liv and Gemma Schaedel made some great intercepts, and Stephanie Smalls and Amelia Pudney were able to put up some good shots to get the goal. Lara Wakeham put in a top effort throughout the whole game. Seymour unfortunately adjusted to the weather and court conditions better and came out with a win. – Kellie Bested
Year 9B – Saints 2 defeated by Seymour 50
The Year 9 B team had a good game this week even though we didn’t manage to win. We are proud of our efforts and are testing out different positions to see which work best. Seymour played well and we played one of our best games of the season so far. We have some things to work on in training, but other than that we are working well together as a team and everyone has improved since the start of the season. – Keely Flannagan
Year 8A – Saints 22 defeated by Seymour 29
Great effort by the girls. Having two strong players away didn’t deter us from trying our hardest against Seymour. A big thank you to Adele Eaton for filling in as our shooter and doing an amazing job. Incredible job in defence by Ruby Deakin, Milly Brett and Lucy White who tried their hardest to stop the other side from shooting. Well done to our mid-court players Alexis Politis and Mia Humphrey who did an outstanding job of getting the ball and making some lovely leads. Dayna Petruzzella did a terrific job in shooting especially in that second quarter. All in all an amazing effort by the girls. – Sivanthi Sivasuthan
Year 8B – Saints 32 defeated Seymour 19
The 8Bs played a great game against Seymour. We started with strong defence and this set up an early lead which we continued in a very strong second quarter. In the third and fourth quarters, the players worked well together with both great attackers and defenders. All of the girls played an amazing game. – Sophie Norman
Year 8C – Saints 19 defeated Seymour 17
The Saints Girls’ 8Cs played a really good game against Seymour, winning their match. We were ahead in all quarters and worked really well together especially in the last quarter when the pressure was on. Our attack and defence were to be commended and it was one of our best games yet. – Annika Bruin
Year 8D – Saints 18 defeated Seymour 17
Even though it was very cold and slippery, our defence bought the ball down well, stayed on their players and worked hard. The attack worked together and got free from the Seymour defenders. We used good tactics from netball training. Our team cooperated well together with the attackers shooting great goals and the defenders winning many of the rebounds. The game was great fun and we all worked as a team. – Gracie Ganzis
Year 7A – Saints 30 defeated Seymour 6
On a wet, slippery morning, our girls rose to the challenge against Seymour. Our centre court created great pathways and fed well to our shooters who combined fantastically. The defenders shut down the opposition’s shooters which assisted us in having a great win. Great job Girls! – Willow Stewart-Rattray
Year 7B – Saints 25 defeated Seymour 9
The girls had a great win and worked really well as a team. They took on feedback from the Coach and used it towards every quarter of the match. They all played their hardest knowing that we had previously won against this team. Some of us had to play out of position but soon enjoyed it and they became really strong positions for the girls. Everyone worked hard and communicated throughout the 12-minute quarters. We had a really good defence and attack, which made this one of our best games so far! The sprit between the girls made us all try equally as hard and this came out as a good result. – Maddie Harrex
Year 6 Blue – Saints 21 defeated Seymour 5
The girls finished with a fantastic win. The team worked tremendously well together throughout the game. Amelia took some impressive intercepts and Charlie Piper had a fabulous afternoon in the goal circle. There has been a noticeable improvement with the girls’ shooting which is great to see. Both defensive and offensive ends were strong in their performance and executed their passes exceptionally well. The girls should be super proud of their win and congratulations on remaining undefeated all term! A great game to finish off a great season. Well done girls! – Coaches: Karen Braund, Char Parker, Eleanor Pyne and Charlotte Adams
Year 6 Silver – Saints 18 defeated St Peters White 2
Year 6 White – Saints 2 defeated by St Peters Silver 18
Year 5 – Saints 15 defeated Seymour 7
The girls played an astonishing game with the defensive work amazing. The skills ranged from getting any loose balls, maintaining 3 feet, putting pressure on the other team, winning many rebounds and holding the girls out of the circle. The mid-court was very spaced out which was good to see. They all used shoulder passes much more, making them a stronger team and their leads were amazing. Although the girls were down at half time, they came back in the last two quarters, making up at three-quarter time. The girls finished the game very strongly with everyone working together and having fun. The shooters did very well towards the end of the game; everyone should be proud of how they worked. – Chloe Venning
Open A – Saints 0 defeated by Wilderness 2
Missing some key players, the girls were faced with a tough game. However, thanks to Kendra Ware and Ashley Piper from the Middle As, the girls were able to put up a good fight. Ellie Anderson once again was a key player for the team in defence, and a big thank you to Taylah Simpson for stepping up and taking on the role of goalkeeper. While the girls didn’t win, they kept on fighting until the final whistle and it’s clear how much their skills have developed over the season. – Dom Rigby (Captain)
Open B – Saints 1 defeated by Concordia 4
The team put in their best performance of the season so far. They took the lead early and went into half-time locked at 1 all. In the second half, Concordia created some scoring opportunities which produced 3 goals. Special mention to Emma Matheson and Neve McCormack who went in goals. Well done girls. – Peter Krantis (Acting Coach)
Middle A – Saints 0 defeated by Wilderness 1
The team continues to show improvement and their hunger to win was evident but unfortunately couldn’t score the goal that was needed. Cheri Wong tried hard to create chances, and Tahlia Louca and Emanuelle Russell both played well sharing the goalkeeping duties. I am sure if the improvements continue, the results will come. – Dion Bonifazio (Coach)
Middle B – Saints 6 defeated Wilderness 2
The girls had a main focus on accuracy of passing and first touch. It wasn’t long before we scored our first and the desire to score more took place. The girls came out wanting to achieve to the best of their ability. In doing so, they enjoyed themselves and were encouraged to try multiple positions. With the hunger to get the ball in the back of the net, they came away with a win. With plenty of time before our next game next term, the girls are eager to hit the training field and work towards specifics analysed from the game. – Grace Abbey (Coach)
Year 6/7 – Saints 1 defeated by Wilderness 4
After a tough first half and down by 2 goals, Saints lifted their heads and managed to score a goal in the first few minutes of the second half. However, despite the girl’s determination, Wilderness managed to score 2 more goals in the last 10 minutes of the half. All players did an extremely good job, putting in 100% effort through the entire game. Special mentions go to Chloe, Grace and Maddie who consistently applied pressure on their opponents, doing an amazing job in both defence and attack. Another special mention goes to Mary for scoring our only goal, although she was unaware she kicked the ball, she never gave up and was happy to play any position she was put in. – Jasmine Ledgard (Coach)
Year 5 – Saints 2 defeated Wilderness 1
The team had a great result in one of the best games of the season with all the girls really showing the skills they have developed. Olivia played a strong game in midfield, scoring both goals. It was an amazing game and the girls should be really proud of their team efforts. – Siena Kulinski
Year 3/4 – Saints 3 drew with Seymour 3
This week, we were challenged again with quality opposition. Seymour arrived with one less player and our players were happy to volunteer to make up the numbers. The game was close even though we were able to get away to a good start. Chloe Richardson, Aurelia Pyne and Alyssa Piantedosi all made shots count and the score was three goals to nil at half-time. Seymour fought back in the second half, scoring three of their own goals. It was really pleasing to see Evelyn Gautier and Isabella Lochowiak play their best games for the season. The match ended in a draw which was fitting for the contest. – Mark Routley (Coach)
Imogen Elliott (Year 8) has taken out the U16 and U18 girls’ category in the third round of the Surfing SA State Titles at Seaford. Conditions were very stormy with 3ft waves on the coast, so Imi did really well in tricky conditions. With her outstanding results, she was asked to do an interview for Surfing Australia mySurftv. Imogen will now represent SA in the U16 girls’ division of the National Titles in December.
She has also been selected to attend the Layne Beachley mentoring camp at the AIS High Performance Centre from 7 – 9 August. Imi is one of only 12 girls selected from throughout Australia to attend.
