Learner Guides Visit to Cleveland Range 2020

Our Learner Guide pupils started the day by attending a lecture on firearms safety. They then had an opportunity to analyse different calibres of firearms before trying out some practical work.

First up was the ‘canoe shoot’ whereby the shooter sits in a canoe and has to fire a revolver – two rounds at a target behind, two rounds to a target at the side and then two rounds at a target in front of the canoe which is further away. The whole operation is timed. This can be quite nerve racking for those who have not done it before but everyone did well and were given a second opportunity to decrease their times.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

RE: FROM THE RECTOR’S DESK

The Cambridge examinations are finished and we are delighted that they have gone so smoothly. To all those who wrote this cycle of examinations, we would like to wish you every success in your results; for our leavers, we hope that your plans for 2021 are now falling into place.

The D, C and B Block returned to formal lessons on Monday and is great to have them back at school. Their return to school came with a bit of a bump as they went straight into the end of year examinations. These examinations will give us a very clear indication of the level of learning that has taken place during Digi-school.

Equestrian Centre Update November 2020

The Peterhouse Equestrian Centre (PEC), like most other sectors the world over, was adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. As schools were closed, we had no pupils coming down to learn to ride, spend quality time with the horses in the yard or go for rides in Gosho Park and enjoy the wonderful facilities available to them.

Fortunately, for both the horses and the Peterhouse Equestrian Centre, the facilities were available to the Campus children once Horse Riding was announced as a low risk sport. We had a small show (to thank the Campus Families’ for their support), a Pony Camp in Gosho Park and then recently a Pony Trek and sleep over in Calderwood Park.

B Block Chimanimani Expedition 2020

Tough, challenging, humbling, breath-taking, unpredictable, surprising, magnificent.

These are some of the words used by girls to describe their Chimanimani experience. The Chimanimani expedition is so entrenched in the Peterhouse outdoor education program and it seemed as if these mountains were prepared for the 22 excited B Block girls who had accepted the challenge to go on the five day expedition.

“It was an eye opening experience which showed me abilities I didn't know I had.”- Mafaro Musimwa

Dear Parents and Guardians,

RE: FROM THE RECTOR’S DESK

Tuesday saw the return of all classes to Springvale – how good it is to have them back at school! The C Block volunteers are currently on Outback, having departed in their groups early on Wednesday morning. Our B Block girls returned last weekend, having enjoyed a wet, but successful, Chimanimani expedition. For B and D Block, Digi-school has continued this week, in preparation of their return, alongside C Block, on Monday 16 November. On Thursday morning a “Return to School” pack was distributed, via email, to all D, C, and B Block parents.
