Peterhouse Girls

Duke of Edinburgh International Award Training 2017

This week we hosted three trainers from the Duke of Edinburgh Award at Peterhouse to conduct training on the Award for staff from various ATS schools. Chisipite Senior School, St Johns College, Falcon College, St Andrews International School from Malawi and Peterhouse all sent delegates for training on various aspects of running the Award in Zimbabwe.

The training was top quality and great, great fun. We really got to know one another well and had a good time working together.

We held a special dinner on one of the evenings, where all the pupils at Peterhouse who are doing their Silver and Gold Awards could meet with the trainers and hear from two Gold Awarders who have just achieved this incredible level during their time at Peterhouse. We also spent several hours doing a Mini Adventurous Journey in Calderwood Park.

Leavers Service 2017

We held our 2017 Leavers Service on Friday 3rd November in the Chapel of St Francis.

It was an emotional morning as we bid farewell to girls who have been a part of the school for 6 years, who have grown and matured, and served, and who are now ready to take on the next chapter of their lives.

They gathered in the Chapel, sang, prayed and handed in their old school shoes.

We wish our 2017 Leavers everything of the best in their futures and encourage them to stay in touch and to visit soon to let us know how they are getting along.

The new Megahey Centre at Peterhouse 2017

Speech Day at Peterhouse this term was no ordinary occasion – it marked the opening of the school’s new Learning Resource Centre – The Megahey Centre.

Named after the 3rd Rector of Peterhouse, the late Alan Megahey, and built at a cost of $1.5million, donated to the school by an anonymous benefactor based in the UK, the new LRC is a vibrant, interactive complex with both formal seating for pupils of all ages to access the internet and do online research, as well as more comfortable and relaxed seating areas for them to enjoy reading and studying.

Giraffe Translocation to Gosho Park 2017

The planning and paperwork has taken three years but at last we have a new male giraffe in Gosho Park. These beautiful animals are so graceful and yet can be very comical when they turn and stare at people - children are fascinated by them and they are a wonderful topic for a lesson.

The capture from Imire Game Park went very smoothly and he was soon on his way in a huge lorry (not with his head sticking out the top! - He was safely inside). We had to use the top service gate because our Peterhouse Girls trees meet over the road and the vehicle was too tall. Once in the park, a ramp was put down for him to walk out into his new home - he galloped off a few meters and then turned and starred around him wondering…. Where am I?
