Peterhouse Girls

NIAA Visual Arts Festival 2019

Last term the C block art girls participated in the National Institure of Allied Arts - Visual Arts, where each group chose one of the given titles under the heading ‘The Green Planet’.

Each group tried to use recycled materials to bring awareness to the environment and conservation through their artwork. Six group projects were chosen from the two art classes, and they achieved three firsts, two second and one third grade.

The projects that obtained firsts were displayed in the St George’s / Hartmann House Jubilee Hall for the final exhibition, and one of them will be on display at the National Art Gallery until 2nd December. We hope you are able to go and take a look at the amazing range of arts shown off from all over the country.

Shona Club Cultural Evening 2019

The highlight of this term's Shona Club activities was the Shona Cultural night. The girls managed to stage an amazing show with music, dance, poetry, the 80s and 90s African women's hairstyles and a fashion show.
Traditional games were also included which took the crowd by surprise as Mrs Zengeza and Mrs Fantiso were part of the Sarura Wako game.

There is a Shona expression which says, "Zvaitoda kuzvionera pamhino sefodya" – you had to see it for yourself. The Shona Club dance group had their famous dance routine Mhande, a celebratory dance with the dancers balancing clay pots. What an evening to remember, the Zimbabwean meal was served at the end of the concert.

Leavers Service 2019

We said farewell recently to our Peterhouse Girls Class of 2019.

It was an emotional time with obvious mixed feelings displayed by the girls, laughter, happiness and some tears. Their last Chapel Service was conducted by Mr Carl Heuer, with parents in attendance. Ms Candy gave a moving farewell speech wishing the girls everything of the best in their future endeavours.

The Class of 2019 was invited to hand in their old black school shoes, to give to less fortunate children in the Marondera community, while receiving a small bible to take with them and keep close to their hearts.

Heads Farewell Dinner 2019

The Heads Farewell Dinner was held on Saturday 26th October 2019 in the newly and aptly named The ‘Peebles Pavilion’. 80 guests were welcomed by the Peterhouse Girls Hospitality Club and the young ladies greeted guests with a glass of Bubbly. Guests were then treated to a three course meal beautifully presented by Introwise.

The evening was a wonderful occasion of formal, yet informal acknowledgements and celebrations of their time at the Peterhouse Group of School, as we bid farewell to all three heads.

With grateful thanks & much appreciation to Graham and Elizabeth Peebles for their 33 years of outstanding service (1986 - 2019) to Springvale House, of which for 26 of those years Graham has been the Headmaster.
