Zimbabwe Equestrian Federation Tour to Namibia 2017

What a brilliant Tour to Namibia. Without our sponsors Sean Bruss, Tina Lowe Knight and the Eventing Committee this would not have been possible. William Annesley, Hailey Hawkins, Kylie Loubser and I were met at the airport and driven to Hendrick and Frauke Roschlau, where we had the best pizzas EVER, and put up for the night at Eden Lodge. After a 5* breakfast we were driven off to Otjiwarongo. We were offered 4 horses as our 5th spare was sadly lame.

The three horses that were already available were easy to match up. My mare was brought in on Friday. William rode Bullsport Lord, owned by Ramona Hilbich. Hailey Hawkins rode Claratal Seniorita, owned by Annette Freyer. Kylie Loubser rode Tosca owned by Jessica Kreiner. I rode Eastern Ascent owned by Silke Hoffend.

Cultural Tour 2017

We had another very successful cultural tour touring 8 cities in 5 countries.

The tour included visits to:
• the Sorrento, Naples and Amalfi coastal region in Italy to study rivers, gorges, caves, headlands and bays

• Rome where we visited the Vatican city, and the Crypt of St Peter in the Basilica. Our guide was excited to learn that our school was named after Jesus' disciple St Peter, whose grave we were standing next to

• Paris, the Chateau de Versailles to the delight of our C Block boys and Disneyland where childhood dreams were relived.

Blue Cross Challenge 2017

Terance Sage, Tawanda Chauruka, Holly Wallace and Reuben de cock set off on the 30th July to conquer the Blue Cross Challenge – on horseback!

This is a 500km journey through the most beautiful areas of Zimbabwe – from the lowest point, Mahenya to the Highest Point, Mnt Nyangani.

The pupils rode, walked and ran for 12 days, reaching the top of the mountain on the 15th August. The journey was really tough physically and mentally. Most days we were up and active for 14hrs of the day.
