Dear Parents and Guardians,

RE: FROM THE RECTOR’S DESK

The Christmas school holiday is quickly coming to an end and I do hope that you have managed to enjoy some quality family time, albeit under very different conditions to what we might be used to. Obviously we find ourselves starting the New Year in difficult times, and the onset of the second Covid wave is proving to be more demanding than was experienced in 2020. The result of this has been a significant rethink of our beginning of year arrangements.

A Well-Travelled Crown 2010 to 2020

In my first year teaching at Peterhouse George Martin took me up to the Chimanimani National Park with the B Block boys for the traditional, annual expedition in these mountains. There, during one of the long days hiking, he described the many expeditions that staff like him, Phil Ward, John Greenacre, Andy Griggs and Guy Cary had taken with boys – all over the African continent, year after year. Together with legendary conservationists like Peter Ginn and Penny Raynor, I had landed myself in an adventurous, curious community. This was a perfect template upon which we could continue exploring with boys and girls at Peterhouse – the world was our oyster.

Spurred on with lots of support, I was handed an old Peterhouse Flag, with a very simple crown on it – one very similar to what is flying upon Monkey’s Hill at the moment. We created an Expedition Club and started planning and dreaming of all the places we would like to take this flag and willing adventurous pupils to.

D Block Tree Planting 2020

“Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”
- Warren Buffett

Sunday November 29th saw our D Block pupils and some staff planting trees on the estates. The soil was already wet as we very fortunately had some rain beforehand. The boys planted two and a half thousand gums in our woodlot block which is required for firewood, poles and building in the years to come.

Our D Block girls planted indigenous trees in the Peterhouse Girls rehabilitation plantation in Gosho Park. The girls each chose a tree, planted carefully, mulched, watered and then made a metal label which they attached to their tree.
