Peterhouse Girls

Community Service

INTERACT
This is the junior arm of Rotary International and is only available to Sixth Form boys and girls.  Selection is by the previous years’ members, and is based on applications made by hopeful Fifth Formers.  The club has a committee with President, vice-President, Treasurer and other functions.

The club meets once a week either to discuss ways in which they can help the local community, or they pay visits to local beneficiaries to establish what their needs are, and how best the club can help.  Funds are raised every year by selling roses and chocolates on Valentine’s Day, as well as the sale of seats at the Interact Variety Show held in the second term.
Beneficiaries have been the Children’s Hospital, the Orphanage, and St Francis School for workers’ children.

The club meets once a week either to discuss fundraising and implement ways in which it can help the local community, or visits a local beneficiary to see what is needed.
Funds are usually raised by running tuck shops at various functions and by selling tickets to the ‘Leo Dance’ that is eagerly attended by A Block through to VIth Form pupils.
Beneficiaries have included the Children’s Hospital and the Orphanage but the major beneficially is usually St Francis School.  Recently help has been given by fencing the Nursery School, making up sports kit for all the children as well as donating books, pencils, and classroom aids.

KUKURA neSHUNGU CLUB
Kukura neShungu is a small school in a high density suburb of Marondera that caters for both mentally and physically challenged children.  These children have been assessed by a local doctor and deemed to be suitable to attend school.  Once a week they visit Peterhouse Boys or Peterhouse Girls for an afternoon and are entertained by a group of pupils.  They might watch documentaries, kick balls, swim, paint, or play marimbas, and always end their afternoon with tea and cakes.  Our pupils that become involved find this interaction very satisfying and worthwhile.
