Harrow, ON | Grades 1 - 8 | Shortlist
Right from the beginning my boys have loved going to this school. When they were in the public school system it was a fight every day and getting them to do their work was a struggle. They have learned that learning can be fun and that working hard has many rewards. They are catching up where they fell behind in the public system. My only regret is that I did not send my boys to this St. Peter's A C H S sooner. They have grown and matured so much since starting at St. Peter's A C H S. I am proud at how they have learned to take responsibility for their education and their actions. This school is teaching my sons to be productive and successful young men in this ever evolving world.
When my son first started at St. Peter's, he was reluctant to attend due to the Code Of Conduct associated with a school of this nature. That stringent, rigid structure is exactly what he came to rely on and found comfort in. That very framework has since proven itself as my son continues to develop into a respectable young man, confident in his ability and respectful of his strengths and weaknesses. At a time where strong male leadership is at an extreme low (especially within the home) Headmaster Thyrring has shown himself to be truthful, fair and understanding. I am grateful for his pursuit of excellence and the dedication needed to give so tirelessly of himself. I am humbled by the strength of his character and the honesty of his integrity. While the world is looking the other way, Mr. Thyrring has stepped up and provided an honourable system of moral conduct.
