“I am passionate about education and St Peter’s School, and believe that our early years are critical in establishing our work ethic, attitude, and develop direction for later life. I felt that being an active member of St Peters Alumni would help me to develop understanding of modern education and the school as it stands today, in addition to staying connected and involved with the school and its past students and teachers."

Ross Duder is a Broadhurst Old Boy (Duder Minor) who, after a 50 year career in agricultural research and consulting, was enticed back to St Peter’s by the 75th Jubilee Reunion in 2010. He now can’t stay away. He’s impressed that the school has grown as a co-educational day and boarding school under successive headmasters, yet has retained the Founder’s mantra of Mind, Body and Spirit. Since joining the Alumni committee, Ross has enjoyed reconnecting with the school’s staff, alumni (via reunions), and Foundation Board.
