Interhouse Plays
On Thursday the 27th and Friday the 28th the girls put on their annual Interhouse Plays. The girls worked hard and hopefully learned much about how to improve their craft in the future. They should be proud of their efforts – some very real talent was evident on stage! Two girls: Franchesca Chinhundu (Eland) and Tanyaradzwa Kurenzvi (Sable) even took on the task of writing original plays for their respective Houses. They, in particular, should be given much commendation. Credit will definitely be given in the adjudication process for such efforts in the future.

Laing Cup for Best Technical Production Winner: Kudu

Chiedza Rwodzi Cup for Best Novice Actress Winner: Tanaka Murengami (Impala)

Model United Nations
On Wednesday the 3rd of March 10 delegates from the Peterhouse Model United Nations participated in the Westridge Conference that was held at Westridge High School. Though it was a small conference, this was a good platform to send out the new delegates to learn and experience what a real conference feels like. All the delegates were quite excited and enthusiastic from the moment the bus left the school. The Peterhouse delegates were split into 2 rooms in which the debates took place. The delegates managed to come up with some interesting ways to deal with some of the crises the world is currently facing, like the ongoing migration and global warming. The Peterhouse delegation was very engaged and active in the debates, showcasing their research and debating skills. The event was capped off with the awarding of the certificates in which all the delegates from Peterhouse each received a certificate. Overall, it was a great conference for the new members and hopefully it has made them better delegates.

Music
On the 26th of February, the Music Department hosted Zimbabwe’s Multi-Award winning singer and vocal coach, Tahle WeDzinza who worked with PHB and PHG vocal students in a master class. She helped with their Eisteddfod pieces and the evening proved to be a very lovely and enlightening one. The Music Department is currently preparing for the Eisteddfod festival with over 200 participants including 7 choirs. It will be a very busy time but we hope for all success over the girls’ performances.

Shona Club
The final fixture was at home, we hosted drama at PHG. Our novice actresses managed to put on an amazing show. However, there were some pupils who had stage fright and failed to execute their roles. I believe that with time the language barrier and acting skills will be perfected.

Service Clubs
Interact visit to Ida Wekwako
Interact Club donated RTGS 10573.00 towards the painting of Ida Wekwako Old people’s kitchen. All 8 ladies and 16 gentlemen of the home were given small gifts – mostly used clothing items, dinner plates and 10 novels which came from the Megahey Centre old stock.

Environmental Club
On the 15th of February 2020 the girls, had a lesson on the importance of integrating wildlife and human nature at Lion and Cheetah Park in the outer areas of Harare. Upon completion of the lessons, the girls now understood the need for sustainable tourism. However, cheetahs have since become extinct in this park. The park now has 16 lions (2 white ones: male and female), 2 camels, a 200 year old tortoise, 2 crocodiles, hyenas and a parrot.

Music
On Monday, the 10th of February 2020, the Music Department hosted internationally-acclaimed Latvian pianist, Miss Agnese Eglina. Miss Eglina held master classes and class presentations to our young musicians at PHG and PHB. She graced us with a lovely piano recital in the evening at PHG Music centre. She played pieces by J.S Bach, Mozart, Brahms, Dvorack and the famous ‘Libertango’ by Piazolla. What a fantastic performance it was and she left many students inspired.

P.A.S.T.I.S.
The meeting held at Macheke was attended by 3 schools namely; Peterhouse Girls, Macheke and Prince Edward.

Shona Club
Our Shona Club started the year with a quiz match against Gateway. We fielded two teams; A and B. Our B team came 3rd and our A team placed 4th out of 4 teams. The questions were very informative as they covered all aspects of the Shona language and culture, including current affairs.

Debate
The Debate Club held a training workshop for both the students and staff on Tuesday the 21st. Their guest speaker was Mr Simbarashe Murondoti. He addressed the various ways of tackling a debate from contextualising the debate to analysis. The girls learnt a lot from the presentation and I hope they will put into practice what they were taught.

Interact Club
On the 23rd of January 2020, the Peterhouse Interact Club, along with Mrs Mudiwa, Mrs Changa and the new Interact Members, visited Musha WeVana - the orphanage in Marondera. They brought the children goodies and spent time with them playing games; it was a memorable experience for each one of the Interact Club members. The opportunity to make even the smallest difference in these children’s lives is something the Interact Club strives for, and visiting the orphanage helps them achieve that goal.

It was moving to watch the new members interact with the children of the orphanage for the first time, as they spent the afternoon playing and laughing with them. Each new member left the orphanage with a grateful heart and a renewed determination to continue the work that Interact has set out to do.

Drama
Peterhouse Girls are due to put on their Interhouse Plays on the 27th and 28th of February, soon after Half Term. This year, each competitive house pulled a theme out of a hat: Eland picked Comedy, Sable – Local, Kudu – Dark and Impala – Romance. House captains are now in the process of casting and rehearsing with the help of Miss Ntini, and we look forward to their riveting performances in 3 weeks’ time! The performances will be adjudicated and six cups and trophies (Best Technical Production, Best Novice Actress, Best Cameo Performance, Best Supporting Performance, Best Actress, and Best Play Overall) are up for grabs! Do come along on the Friday night (28th) and support the girls, if you can.

PASTIS
The club was invited to a Lifeline social meeting at Harare Convent on the 29th of January. The function was attended by 3 other schools, namely: Arundel, Prince Edward and Saint George’s. Discussions were held on several topics which included self-esteem and body image, relationships and the negative aspects of partying.
