Peterhouse Girls

Peterhouse Girls - Staff Profile - Kiara Cordy 2018

Kiara Cordy joined Peterhouse Girls as Director of Sport in September 2017.

Kiara attended Peterhouse Girls School (1991 – 1996) where she played 1st Team Tennis and Squash; she was vice captain of Swimming; captained 1st Team Hockey; vice-captained Mashonaland Country Districts and played Zimbabwe Schools Hockey.

After completing A Levels in Biology, Geography and English, Kiara attained qualifications in Computer Programming, Systems Analysis and Design; and completed International Air Transport Association (IATA) training. Following her studies, Kiara left Zimbabwe in 2001 and lived overseas where she worked for Accenture in London and continued to play sport at various levels, including club hockey for the London Wanderers. Upon return to Zimbabwe, Kiara worked for KPMG in Harare and then went on to operate her own Travel Agency until 2014.

Being an avid all-round sportswoman, Kiara found the confines of office walls less appealing than the sports fields; therefore, embarked on further qualifications in Exercise Science, Fitness Instruction and Personal Training through the Health and Fitness Association of South Africa (HFPA). After a lengthy break from hockey, Kiara returned to the turf in 2015 and joined the ranks of the Zimbabwe Ladies Masters Hockey team in 2017 and continues to play Harare League Hockey with Peterhouse Girls Team - PHG Queens.

Learner Guides Trip to Gonarezhou 2018

Our Learner Guides group have just spent six nights in Gonarezhou National Park which was an interesting experience. Peterhouse parents who work there gave us an insight into the work done by the Frankfurt Zoological Society together with National Parks.

Our professional guide was Andy Smith and under his licence we were able to walk in the park which is a special privilege. Pupils climbed up an elephant trail to the view point on the cliffs and met some elephants on the way.

There are good raptors in the area and it is a very different view when one is above the eagles, vultures and storks looking down on them from the top of the cliffs. The vegetation was very thick in some areas after the good rainy season and the rivers quite high which made for some interesting crossings.

Confirmation Service 2018

We were delighted to hold our annual Confirmation Service this morning.

The Rt Rev Dr Chad Gandiya, the Bishop of Harare, confirmed 24 boys and 21 girls. The highlight for most of the boys and girls was the Confirmation Retreat last weekend, which was excellently hosted by Zambesi Holidays and combined plenty of fun with real spiritual value.

Our school chaplains have often praised “Zam Hols” for their commitment to - and investment in - Peterhouse over many years, and encourage every boy and girl at Peterhouse to go on a Zambesi Holidays camp in any of the school holidays - find them on Facebook for more information.
