Interact Variety Concert 2017

The Peterhouse Interact Club held its annual Variety Show dubbed ‘Fight Night’ from Tuesday the 11th to Thursday the 13th Of July in the Fieldsend Hall. Club members worked hard to put the show together and the atmosphere suited the theme. Acts ranged from ‘boxers’, to rappers, hip hop dancers and choirs; to duets, crowd pleasers and fashion modelling.

Special guest performances from Vera, accompanied by her band (Mr Covini on the drums) and Petrean ‘Don Don’ added some spice to the show, not excluding the professionally managed lights and sound that we were privileged enough to have (Thanks to Mr St John).

Overall, the boys and girls had a great time (with many of them saying this has been their best Interact Variety Show yet). The show ran slick and most importantly, the club raised some money for charity (about a $3000 profit).

Nursery School Day of the Fairy Tale 2017

In recognition of ‘The Day of the Fairy Tale’ children at the Peterhouse Nursery School were encouraged to come dressed as their favourite fairy tale character for the day.

The day was spent discussing the various fairy tales and admiring each other’s costumes (or helping Tin Man with his outfit). The Peterhouse D Block (Form 1) boys came to read fairy tales to small groups of children as part of their English lesson, while acting out the stories as best they could. The Peterhouse C Block (Form 2) boys also visited the nursery school to play fairy tale inspired games.
