Peak School’s latest newsletter is available to read now. Find out the latest news around the school and upcoming events.
Our Year 6 children have spent the week camping at Outward Bound and I had the pleasure of joining them during the week. I am delighted to report that their behavior was exceptional and they made the most of their opportunity by participating fully in all the activities and experiences on offer.
Back at school we had a wonderful Diwali celebration on Friday morning during the Year 1 and 2 Discovery Time. My thanks to all the parents that organised and supported the activities on offer. The children clearly enjoyed it.
Next week our Year 4 and 5 children are out camping with Year 4 going to the Bradbury Camp at Cheung Chau and Year 5 going to a Scout camp in Sai Kung. A reminder to our Year 4 and 5 parents that you will receive a short email each night confirming that we are all okay band that you won’t be receiving regular updates.
This week in my blog, which you can access by clicking HERE, I cover the following:
- St John’s Workshop – the support workshop is now confirmed
- 3 Way Conferences – what are they and yes, the school is open as normal
- Uniform – another reminder that black leather shoes must be worn
- Office Assistant Maternity Cover – we are hoping we have a parent who may like to cover this role during Term 2
England and South Africa have risen to the top at the Rugby World Cup and meet each other in the Final on Saturday. England look very impressive but you can never write off a strong South African team. As a staunch All Black fan, you could only stand back and admire the way in which the English team played last Saturday. There was no doubt who the better team was and the question this weekend is whether or not they can do it again against South Africa. I think they can.
Enjoy your weekend everyone and thank you for your continued support.

Year 5 ReDress Pop Up Shop
On Thursday 24/11, not only were bargains snapped up, whilst saving the environment the Redress Pop Up Shop learning engagement gave the Year 5 students a chance to authentically experience, identifying customer base, stock taking, sorting stock, advertising, sales and accountancy in preparation for planning their ‘Year 5 Winter Fair’ a bit later on in the year.
The Year 5’s raised $3831 for Redress. A Redress representative will be coming to collect the cheque and thank the students at assembly on December 6th. Redress have been so impressed with the Year 5s innovative thinking at Peak School they are hoping to add the idea of a Pop Up Shop to their Redress Month next year.
