Introducing our 2021 Dept. Head of D Block - Caitlin Theron

My name is Caitlin Theron and I am in Eland House.

I was born in Mutare but lived in central Mozambique most of my life as my parents moved there in the 90s. I went to a small junior school there called Njerenje School, in Chimoio.

I joined Peterhouse in 2018, my Form 3 year. It was a difficult year for me - adjusting to boarding school - but I soon overcame it.

I am currently studying Literature, English Language and Geography at A level and I hope to become a travel journalist when I leave school. Writing has always been a passion of mine and I've always wanted to travel so travel writing will be a win-win situation for me.

Introducing our 2021 Head of D Block - Done Erasmus

My name is Doné Erasmus and I am in Eland House.

I am from Harare and I went to Lilfordia School which I really enjoyed. I joined Peterhouse in D block (Form 1). I am currently studying Geography, Physical Education and Biology. In the future I would love to do something in occupational therapy or speech therapy. In my spare time I would love to play sport.

Sport is a very big part of my life: I absolutely love it. I really appreciate how Peterhouse gives you amazing opportunities for sport and I am currently Captain of Rowing, and Vice-captain for 1st team hockey. When I have a spare time I like to go running with my friends or any form of exercise just to catch up. Because of this pandemic I have really struggled with the lack of sport but this has forced me to study more but I really miss having interactions and competing against students from the other schools. On the weekends I love spending my time down at the dam and rowing.

My name is Mupiwa Mungoni and I am in Impala.

I am from Harare and I went to Gateway Primary School. I have spent all six years of high school at Peterhouse and I am currently studying Mathematics, Business Studies and Biology.

At Peterhouse I enjoy playing volleyball and particularly like the music department where I participate in choir. One thing I appreciate most about Peterhouse is the vast amount of opportunity it offers. In April, 2019, I travelled to Denmark as part of a cultural exchange program. We had the opportunity to closely interact with the community which was great fun and very enlightening not only about the Danish but about other European countries and their cultures.

From the Rector's Desk - 26th February 2021

Friday 26 February 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians,

RE: FROM THE RECTOR’S DESK

I do hope that the recent half term provided you all with a good break from the demands of online schooling. As the week has unfolded we have, increasingly, grown in expectation of an announcement about the re-opening of schools. This has been prompted by the school having to complete documentation on our preparedness to re-open the school for the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education. I would certainly like to think that we have everything in place to get our pupils back.
