Tanya Midzi Southern African Champion 2020

Well done to Tanya Midzi who has claimed two titles in Windoek, Namibia. Tanya is the U14 Southern Africa Champion 2020 in both singles and doubles. She has gone on to beat South Africa’s number one seeds two years in a row and has emerged as the top U14 girl player in Southern Africa region consisting of eight countries.

This achievement assisted the Zimbabwe team to come 1st in the country rankings for U14 age group. Her ranking for the Africa Continent now sits at number 3, following girls from Egypt and Benin who are placed 1st and 2nd. In Harare Tanya played in the New Winners Tournament where she took gold in both singles and doubles. Upon arrival in Windhoek she took some inspiration from the Great Britain rowing team with whom Peterhouse parent, Mr. Ryan Bathurst, was travelling, and details of their exploits at the Olympics were truly inspiring.

Getting Back onto the Water with Rowing Camp 2020

During the last week of the holidays we hosted a very successful rowing camp at the School.

Our young rowers came in loaded down with rest and good living. After their first session on the ergs to do their time-trials, there was much groaning as the aches and pains crept in. It did not take long though, for our athletes to get back into the swing of things, so with some good time on the water, strength and conditioning from Mr. Matiringe and lots of time on the ergs, our oarsmen and oars women have every chance of success in this next season.

Workers’ Childrens Christmas Party 2019

On the day after term ended there was much excitement surrounding the annual Workers’ Childrens Christmas Party – this is an annual event that takes place in the Peterhouse Boys Junior Dining Hall.  Little children could hardly contain their excitement as they streamed through the doors to find seats as close to the Christmas Tree as possible.

The Rector, Mr Howard Blackett, opened the proceeding with a short speech he had prepared for the children, in Shona, his final speech at Peterhouse. Shortly after the music was turned up and the dancing competitions started. The children were then treated to a delicious Christmas lunch provide by Introwise.

Many thanks to Mr Tonderayi Nzanga for coordinating this event and to all who donated presents.
