Over the years it has grown and now offers competition in boys' and girls' hockey, football ( soccer ), basketball and tennis.

When appointed to a Brisbane private boys' school in 1997 as its first full time Rugby Director, Peter already had 27 years of experience either as an entrepreneurial businessman, TAFE lecturer, secondary school teacher or representative level rugby coach. Believing that the cultural divides are lost on the sport playing fields, in late 1997 Peter founded an organisation that was eventually to present the biggest annual international school age sporting and cultural events in Australia. At the end of 1999 he opted to relinquish the Rugby Director position in favour of the challenge of building this new organisation focusing on enhancing the educational experience for young people around the World. Deciding to move in a new direction to benefit those students who are culturally focused, in 2007 he presented in Brisbane the internationally acclaimed Bonyi International Youth Music Festival. 

Peter began his involvement in China in 2004 and organised the first China Stars International Friendship Games in 2005. In late 2007 Peter made a firm decision to pursue the international thread further and independently founded China Stars Events to focus on presenting events in Asia. Whilst China Stars International Friendship Games continues annually, it took two years of planning to again present a cultural event, this time in Beijing, with 2011 marking the successful introduction of tutti world youth music beijing. The 2017 event will mark Peter's 20th year of presenting international events for over 25000 school age participants and 43 years after he presented his first ever event when at university.

Awarded the Australian Sports Medal in 2000 in recognition of his long contribution to youth sport development, Peter is a Fellow of the Institute of Sport Management.
