Announcing the new Chair of St Andrew’s College Council

The Council of St Andrew’s College is pleased to announce that Peter Amm is to become the next Chair of Council.


In December 2023, Jacko Maree informed the Andrean community that he would be standing down as Chairman of Council in July 2024 after a decade in the role. The Nominations Committee of Council, under the leadership of Malcolm Mackenzie, has worked diligently to ensure a smooth transition.

Peter is a well-known member of the Andrean community. His deep-rooted connections to our schools stretch back many generations, originating with his great-great-grandfather, the esteemed Canon Robert John Mullins, whose legacy continues to shape our collective identity.

Peter attended both St Andrew’s Prep and College (Upper, 1980) and, after qualifying as a Chartered Accountant, enjoyed a successful career in Johannesburg, which included several directorships and chairmanships. As a former parent of College, DSG and Prep, and as an active Old Andrean, he has maintained close connections with both our schools and the community.

Peter recently relocated from Johannesburg to the Eastern Cape and will officially commence his duties as Chairman of Council immediately after the Council meeting in July. During this interim period, he will dedicate time to engaging with Council and staff members to familiarise himself with all aspects of the role. As he embarks on this new chapter of service, Peter brings with him not only a wealth of experience but also a passion for the Eastern Cape and our family of schools.

As we bid farewell to one Chairman and welcome another, we embrace this moment with a sense of gratitude and optimism.
