The drama girls had a busy start to the term with two workshops taking place over the closed weekend. The first workshop was facilitated by the talented “Handlebards”, who once again, graced Peterhouse with their performance of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ on Saturday 12th May. They are a dynamic group of women who taught the girls how to adapt their characters in a more physical manner for performance. On Sunday 13th June another workshop was conducted by Mr Musa Saruro, from the National Institute of Allied Arts. It was an eye opening experience for the girls who participated and gave them the opportunity to hone their stage craft. This was a worthwhile and enjoyable experience for all who attended.

Interact Visit To Kukura Neshungu (Faith Tsuroh)
When we set off from school, most of us were worried that this would be an uncomfortable visit where our ability to socialise with the physically and mentally disadvantaged members of the Marondera community would be found wanting. The visit to Kukura Neshungu was a touching one; we were welcomed by the students who were very happy to see us. We learnt about the people at Kukura Neshungu and their different "disabilities" and what they are taught at their school. The experience was touching: shaking the hand of a girl who can't make out a greeting but smiles at you and pulls you in for a hug was a significant life experience; and having this same girl show you how to make yourself a rug is another. While we saw 26 out of the possible 30 students who learn here, this particular visit to Kukura Neshungu reminded us of the values we need to remember when interacting with other human beings: to be patient with each other, to show humility amongst other people and to appreciate that with which we have been blessed.

1st Team Squad – Hockey Tour to Bundu Bashers Festival, Pietermaritzburg
We travelled to South Africa with a relatively “young” squad of 16 (a few of the old guard from 2017 and several A Block girls now players as Seniors). Largely, a development side, most of whom had not played together in the previous season. The festival started on Wednesday 4th April and we played two matches. We won against Hoerskool Transvalia: 1-0. We lost narrowly to Jeppe High for Girls: 1-2, trying a number of combinations but really focusing on integrating the younger players with the more experienced girls. Our third match was another closely fought contest with us going down 2-3, but some outstanding hockey played. The girls lifted their spirits and had a wonderful win against Redhill High: 4-0. The girls fought hard against Fourways High, losing 3-4 and our final game ending in a nail biting draw against Hoereskool Noordheuwel.

On our final Saturday we were privileged to travel to Michaelhouse for a very good leadership talk by Tim Jarvis and Keith Fairweather. The girls were very excited to see where the movie ‘Spud’ had been set and filmed. It was a great opportunity to visit the place that Peterhouse is modelled on and to see some of our school’s history. We also stopped at the Nelson Mandela Capture Sight for a walk around and to view the spectacular sculpture of Mandela. The extraordinary sculpture by artist Marco Cianfanelli comprises 50 steel column constructions – each between 6.5 and 9.5 metres tall, all set into the landscape. After reading through the History of ANC and South Africa, and making the ‘Long Walk to Freedon’ to see the sculpture, we returned to the Liberty Mall for some more retail therapy. We gathered for our final meal as a team on Saturday night and returned to pack up.

A memorable experience for all of our girls, an invaluable learning curve and creation of a strong team dynamic that we have taken with us into the start of the 2018 Season.
