Interact Musha weVana Visit February 2019

Recently the Interact club visited the local orphanage, Musha weVana. We were welcomed by ecstatic faces of the little ones; all geared and ready to have fun with the interact members. The afternoon was well spent.

This was the first visit to Musha weVana for new interact members which challenged them to socialize and interact with children of different ages.

Stories were shared, songs were sung and friendships were made. The fine afternoon was rounded off by the interact board members giving clothes and school shoes to the children; they were very grateful for this kind gesture. The Interact club thanks all who donated clothing as the children at Mushavevana really appreciated it.

Adventurous Journey to Imire Bush Camp 2019

Anyone afraid of bats? Or getting lost for a few hours?

Our second Duke of Edinburgh Adventurous Exploration journey found us ten times wiser than the first had been. Strategies and rough route maps, which were influenced by the location of the irritable Black Rhino were all in place. It was all very exciting for the pupils who picked the Exploring over the Expedition. They felt it would be easier, which it is in some ways, but walking still needs to be done and the usual self-catering, self-sustaining has to happen all of which can be hard work.

Crochet Drive Request 2019

We have a campaign each year to make blankets for the children of Musha weVana. Each girl is asked to crochet at least one granny square (using a 4.5 hook and double knit wool) measuring 20cm by 20cm, which should take her about an hour to complete.
Each blanket needs 60 squares, so as a school we should be able to make at least 7 blankets. Please encourage your daughters to do their square (and maybe a few more if possible).
If she does not know how to crochet, there are plenty of girls and staff who are willing to show her or indeed there are YouTube videos on the internet teaching step-by-step basics of crochet.

Mission Week 2019

The 2019 Mission Week took place from the 12th – 19th of February, when nine Zambezi Holidays leaders devoted their time to building relationships, answering questions and promoting a deeper relationship-based Christian faith within the Peterhouse senior schools. The theme was ‘Therefore, Stand’, based on Ephesians 6:10-17 which speaks about putting on the various aspects of the armour of God. The focus for the week was to promote a deeper understanding for the necessity of reading the Bible and praying in order to build your faith and relationship with God, and to stand on the word of God in any trial or situation.
