Walking Wearing Orange for Kidzcan 2019

Our estates team, ably directed by Tony Borlase, set up everything meticulously for our annual Kidzcan Charity Fundraising Event. Inspite of typical Marondera early morning thick mists, hundreds of people started arriving at our school gates to celebrate Mothers Day and the amazing work Kidzcan does, together with their children. Many were clad in funky orange outfits and tackies, ready to walk or run along a beautiful route set up through the miombo woodlands and vleis of our Calderwood Park.

Equestrian Centre prepares for Blue Cross 2019

At the end of the April Holidays the Blue Cross team completed a training camp in preparation for the Long Journey they will depart on at the end of this term. It was a five day long trip which included riding to Wenimbi, Tsindi Ruins, Macheke and the two Peterhouse game parks. During these five days we took it in turns to prepare our meals.

As a group we had to wake up at the crack of dawn to feed the horses and get geared up for and eight hour ride. On most days we had to cross streams, ride on varied terrains and negotiate with locals for directions.

Poetry Slam 2019

The Peterhouse Boys’ English Department hosted a very successful ‘Poetry Slam’ at the end of last term in the Megahey Centre. Here twenty-eight young poets from Peterhouse Boys and Peterhouse Girls wrote and presented their poems to an audience and a panel of judges (Mr R. Hanly and Mrs T. Kapuya). The poems were insightful and a lot of planning went into the recitations. The boys and girls gave an entertaining performance and the audience was both supportive and involved in the proceedings. Mr S Davy kept the programme flowing with his witty anecdotes and heartfelt - often very funny - renditions of famous poetry.
