OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENTS IN CULTURE 2020

ART AND DESIGN, PHOTOGRAPHY AND DESIGN TECHNOLOGY CLUBS
The Art Club’s aim is to teach a range of crafts, which promote recycling objects into something useful. The Design Technology Club provides opportunities for IGCSE exam candidates to build their coursework portfolios, as well as allow younger girls to make a range of objects to reinforce what they learn in class.
In the Lent term, the Photography sessions run by the Art Department, aimed to enable girls to learn more about their cameras and improve their photographic abilities. Although unable to continue with a full class over Digi-school, some Duke of Edinburgh girls still continued and completed their hours in Photography.

BRIDGE
We were only able to play a limited number of schools in the Lent term, with varying results. As usual, the D Block Compulsories, under the watchful eye of our Bridge Captain, Shamiso Chikuri, took place every Thursday and helped introduce the girls to this enjoyable game. Unfortunately, the Mashonaland Pairs, Teams of Four and Inter-house Bridge Tournaments, which normally take place in the Trinity term, could not be held.

Full Colours: Shamiso Chikuri and Tanatswa Njanji.

BUDDING AUTHORS AND FILM CLUB
Film Club had to halt its production of a script written in Budding Authors and edited in Film Club. The film focused on Social Media. Now, however the girls are raring to go as we rework the script to be set under lockdown conditions. Two pupils who are studying editing in Computer Science will edit the film and we hope to screen it by the middle of next year.


BUCKLAND ARTS COMPETITION
The Buckland Arts Competition is a tradition that was started by Mrs Sue Buckland. The competition provides a platform for Peterhouse Girls to show case their talent in a wide range of cultural activities over a period of five days. These activities include Music, Flower arrangement, Art and Photography, Dance, Recitation, Design, Cookery and Décor (which was introduced this year). This year the completion was open to the junior girls only as the seniors were already working on their IGCSE examinations.

The theme for 2020 – Celebration in Adversity, reminded the girls and the Peterhouse Girls community that despite the challenges brought about by Covid-19, we still have reason to celebrate and be grateful. For the first time the competition was virtual with the girls competing and handing in their entries online. Due to the virtual nature of the competition, some categories such as Cookery, Installations and the concerts could not be a part of the competition. Consequently, the number of entries were not as many as they would have been ordinarily.
Congratulations to the following girls who participated and won in their categories:
Flower Arrangement Imani Kujeke (I)
Recitation Rachael Nyamayaro (I)
Music Kyra Peters (I)
Art Coco Bathurst (E)
Photography Brianna Style (S)
Décor Laura Changanani (E)
Dance Tasha Chikasha and Lysandra Zvakarambwa (I)
Design Ruvarashe Nhongonema (I)

House Positions: 1st Impala, 2nd Sable, 3rd Eland, 4th Impala

CHESS
The club had weekly Wednesday practices and matches. We continued to take part in ATS league matches with noticeable improvement in game technique. Interhouse Chess was played online this year with one player per house competing and the results are as follows:


Juniors: 1st Eland, 2nd Sable, 3rd Impala and 4th Kudu.
Seniors: 1st Impala, 2nd Kudu, 3rd Eland and 4th Sable
Overall Interhouse Chess results: 1st Eland,2nd Impala,3rd Sable and 4th Kudu.

CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP
Christian Fellowship aims to provide a platform for all the girls to grow in spiritual and personal relationship with God. There are senior-lead cell groups run in each house every week, which were run in the first term and continued in the third term with the seniors at school. With Digi-school, Mrs Helen Allott along with Ms Tamrin Silcock started an online ‘classroom’ in which encouraging, hearty and relevant material is posted for girls to engage with in their own time. A guest speaker is invited to speak every Friday night, whilst the CF band organises worship songs, through either a live band or praise and worship video sessions. In the Lent term ‘Mission Week’, was held, which saw the Zambezi Holidays team of volunteers spend the week teaching, answering questions and building relationships with the girls. The theme this year was ‘Your Kingdom Come’, which aimed at unpacking the themes of the Lord’s Prayer and the importance of all of the elements within our life, and was greatly enjoyed by all.

DEBATING
The Debate Club continues to grow setting up to enhance the speaking skills of the students and to encourage them to become orators. The club provides an avenue for self-expression and independent thinking, thereby helping the students to grow in self-confidence. We took part in several matches in the Lent term. Each match saw the quality of the speeches improve, with the girls speaking very well at the ATS Debate Tournament. COVID 19 saw us participating in Virtual Debates with Arundel and Hellenic, which was novel for us all. The teams spoke well from their various locations.

Distinctions: Bianca Zvikaramba
Silver Service Tie: Priscilla Muhita

FRENCH CLUB
Though we have continued with activities that enhance the speaking of French and appreciation of the French culture, we have been limited in what we hoped to achieve by the global pandemic and the lockdown, which ensued. The Quiz and Soiree, which we had planned, were postponed.

GAVEL CLUB
While the Covid 19 Pandemic has brought its challenges worldwide, we have had to adapt and work with the “new normal”. An opportunity arose for 10 young men and 10 women of the Peterhouse Group Gavel club to connect with a club thousands of kilometres away in Canada. It was an evening filled with fun and what we have learnt from this situation is that we do not have to travel far to meet other schools for such events. While we appreciate the importance of human interaction, the Gavel Clubs of Peterhouse Group of Schools have used this opportunity to link up with the rest of world and have sound debates, and we are looking forward to our next meet, hopefully with a club in China.

HOSPITALITY CLUB
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”- Gandhi
This year the club missed out on all the occasions of the year due to the unforeseeable events of the ongoing pandemic, but we still enjoyed sessions of growth in the hospitality sector in first term as we learned the ins and outs of hospitality. This year's head of hospitality was Rutendo Mupfumi and must be commended for her hardwork and commitment to hospitality.

INTERACT CLUB
In the Lent term, Interact visited Musha Wevana and interacted with the children. We also went to Ida Wekwako Old People's Home and paid for the painting of their kitchen. During the Covid lockdown period, with the help of Mrs. Shoesmith, Mrs. Heathcote, Mr. Shoesmith and Outward Bound, we bought food items, which included cooking oil, mealie meal and kapenta for both Musha Wevana and Ida Wekwako. Interact paid ZESA bills for three months for Ida Wekwako.

In response to an appeal by the Lomagundi School Interact Club, which was raising money for Patience Dohwe, a cancer patient, our club sent ZW$72 000.00 to help pay Patience's medical bills. In addition, the club also paid fees of ZW$1800.00 to Msasa Vocational Training Centre in Harare for Panashe Kwari of Mwamuka Village at PHB.

KUKURA NESHUNGU
Kukura neShungu is a charity organisation in Marondera for children with physical disabilities and learning challenges. The Kukura neShungu pupils visit PHG weekly to spend time with our club members. The sessions are comprised of activities, which include song and dance.

Silver Service Tie: Sasha Mukucha, Chidochashe Madeira, Panashe Katsi, Ropafadzo Mariga

LEO
The year 2020 has made an everlasting impact on every one of us, be it negative or positive. Due to COVID 19, the whole world was forced to 'shutdown' and we all had to stay indoors. The LEO club stood firm and steadfast in ensuring that we carried out our main duty, service to the community. Each week we challenged ourselves to do at least one community service, but still observing COVID 19 regulations. These included picking up litter, walking SPCA animals, giving food to the poor like Ida weKwako, or simply cheering up someone. Despite these setbacks, each one of our members managed to live up to our mandate and positively affected their societies.


LIBRARY REPORT
The first term proceeded as normal, with a plethora of enthusiastic monitors and the library being utilized by everyone with no hint of what was to come. Then came lockdown! We reopened for Digi-school so the staff could use our facilities. Since the senior girls have returned, however, we have once again become a hive of activity (but remaining Covid compliant of course!) Especially popular have been the evening sessions for V and VI Form and Saturday and Sunday afternoons, thanks to the members of the Library Committee who have opened up for their peers, outside of the normal opening hours.

MAGAZINE REPORT
The first term was a busy time for the Magazine Club: collecting reports, checking names and captions, editing and collating information. Sections introduced this year included Creativity at PHG and Highlights of 2019, which we will continue for the 2021 edition.

Distinctions: Shamiso Chikuri, Michelle Murengami, Tanatswa Njanji

MODEL UNITED NATIONS
The Model United Nations club introduced the Junior MUN this year. This included A and B Block. The juniors attended the Peterhouse conference that was held on the 8th of February 2020. The theme for the conference was '' How much longer can we live like this?" Unfortunately, they were unable to attend more conferences due to Corvid19.

MUSHA WEVANA CLUB
The Musha weVana Club members reach out to orphaned children at local children’s home, where they selflessly give up a few hours every Monday afternoon to interact, play games, and tutor the children. Girls in the club were unable to visit during lockdown, but flash cards, games and posters for the hall have been made for when we can resume our visits. Time spent with the orphans is always an uplifting experience and enriches everyone's life.

PASTIS
The Peterhouse Awareness of Social Teenage Issues Club (PASTIS) promotes consciousness on various topical issues that affect the youth today. In the Lent term, we studied and discussed various literary works. This broadened the girls’ views on various topical issues and forced the girls to confront different cultural perceptions from their own lives. The club had meetings with Prince Edward School, Macheke High School, Dominican Convent Harare, St Georges College and Arundel School. Notable amongst the meetings was a combined meeting held at Dominican Convent with several other schools.

QUIZ
The club competed in four quiz competitions during the first term of this year. The captain, Marylene Bandera, who has been a dedicated member of the club since D Block, encouraged the junior members of the club to grow in knowledge and learn new facts in more exciting ways. During the Michaelmas term, we hosted our first online Interhouse competition and the results were as follows:

Interhouse Quiz: 1st Eland, 2nd Sable, 3rd Kudu, 4th Impala
Golden Cock’s Ties: Marylene Bandera

SHONA CLUB

The Shona Club is a cultural club, which operates as an extension of the Shona lessons and allows the girls to keep in touch with their Shona roots and learn more about the Shona people’s lifestyle and traditions. Club members learn several traditional dances and songs.

Distinctions: Marylene Bandera

THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH’S INTERNATIONAL AWARD (DOE-IA).
When girls turn 14, they have the opportunity to start The Duke of Edinburgh International Award. Over 6 million young people from over 100 countries are accessing this Award program. With only 3 countries in Africa that do the DOE-IA Program – South Africa, Kenya and Zimbabwe, Peterhouse is one of only three schools in Zimbabwe currently offering this internationally recognised and well respected programme to its pupils.
Google Classroom has been the main platform used to engage with participants and it has been pleasing to see that, this year, even under the strenuous COVID environment, a number of pupils adapted and continued to strive to complete their awards. The Gold level participants have been very active and Nyasha Kamba and Genevieve Shoesmith successfully completed their Residential Project at La Rochelle.

Bronze Award: Shani Matondo, Deborah Davy, Genevieve Shoesmith, Amber Robinson, Tinotenda
Mapani, Abigail, Mahofa, Tavonga Chirombe, Bridget Lapham, Ayla Skye Greeff, Kayla Kalweit.


Silver Award: Sarah Burdett, Kayla Kalweit, Genevieve Shoesmith


OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENTS IN MUSIC 2020

EISTEDDFOD HONOURS (before lockdown)
Due to the lockdown, this year’s Eisteddfod was cancelled. However, a few pupils managed to perform in the solo instrumental sections. Special mention goes to Aneni Chigwedere for receiving an Honours grade for Grade 6 piano.

ACHIEVEMENTS DURING LOCKDOWN

The girls put up a spectacular virtual choir performance of “Tundra” by Ole Gjeilo.
Our senior mixed choir also competed in the World Virtual Choir games in August and managed to reach the final round with a beautiful rendition of “Singers Arise” by Victor C. Johnson, Peterhouse was one of the two schools from Zimbabwe to participate in this international event.
Sadly, due to the Covid lockdown, the Music department has not hosted the 2020 Junior and Senior Musician of the year.

At the moment, the Music department is putting together a virtual carol service for the end of the year. In the words of Victor Hugo, ‘Music goes where words cannot.’
