Cultural Results

Five of our students attended an evening of Debaters at St George’s College alongside other speakers from different schools. The motion for the debate was: "This house believes that we cannot have true democracy in a country that does not guarantee absolute freedom of expression."

The guest speaker was an old Georgian and celebrated comedian, Mr Sam Monro who spoke about justice and how to fight for what one believes, which is very much in line with the Jesuit values that the school is founded on. Such an event gives students an opportunity to socialise and share ideas with other schools.

Our meeting with Prince Edward was entertaining and informative. We discussed several issues, among them Teenage Depression which was quite enlightening. We had a testimony from one of the boys who shared how depression is real among teenagers especially in this current generation. We pondered on why depression was not highlighted in previous generations.

Interhouse Public Speaking
The Gavel Club organised the annual Inter-House Public Speaking competition, which was held on Friday 2 August (juniors) and Saturday 3 August (seniors). Gavel Club members were the facilitators for both events. Many thought-provoking speeches were presented by both juniors and seniors, and the overall results were all very close. Many thanks to Ms Rinashe, I/C Gavel and Miss Ntini, who was the adjudicator; her feedback to all the speakers was invaluable.

The results were as follows:
1st Tanatswa Matonda 60 points - Eland
2nd Amy Scott Elliot 56 points - Kudu

Leo Dance
The Leo Club is a charity organisation that is run by senior students to provide service to the Marondera community by offering assistance to various beneficiaries within the area. Namely: Ida we Kwako – old age home, Musha weVana Orphanage, The General Hospital, Kukura ne Shungu and St. Francis Primary School.

This year, the Leo Club has done exceptionally well, despite the current economic situation. Under the theme “Dynasty”, the Leo Dance Committee was able to raise RTGS 9000.00. The fundraiser was a success, and has set high standards for the incoming Leos. The dance was the highlight of this year’s achievements, from planning, to carrying out the tasks required, which serves to prove that collective efforts outweigh individual ones.
The aim of the Club is to encourage Leo members to advance as leaders. To utilise the opportunities given, to help others and put to good use the experience, to improve one’s social skills and adjust one’s personality if need be. The words leadership, experience and opportunity are abbreviated within the Club’s name to show what one achieves after being in the Club.

Musician of the year
Junior winner Rutendo Magomo
Senior winner Tatenda Zvidzai

Last week on Wednesday the 15th of May, the Peterhouse Girls Gavel society was invited to their first inter-schools meet with St George’s College. We were received and hosted exceptionally well by their Toastmasters Club and our girls enjoyed a wonderful and challenging evening filled with many thought filled interactions and entertaining speeches. Our girls prepared and presented two speeches during the course of the evening and speakers Kudakwashe Denhere and Danai Mandebvu spoke on Rape, Culture and Identity. These topics initiated very thought-provoking discussions that engaged the whole room and ensued throughout the evening. This was a successful meeting and we learned many new aspects of the Club and its roles that we hope to incorporate into our own society to further prepare us for our future meets.

Hospitality Tour
On Saturday the 11th of May the Peterhouse Girls Hospitality Club and the form 4 Travel and Tourism class travelled to Harare to experience firsthand how the Tourism and Hospitality industry operates in the capital city. The group visited Nyati Tours, Skylark Travel agency and wrapped up the tour with a full sweep of the popular Rainbow Towers where they were given a tour of the 17th – Presidential floor.

All in all the girls learnt about the structure of the Tourism industry in our country, which includes tour operators who coordinate suitable and custom made tours around the country for local and foreign tourists. The Rainbow Towers gave insight into what facilities a hotel offers to qualify for 5 stars – the gyms, saunas, tennis courts, several differently themed restaurants, a casino and the largest international conference centre in the country (HICC) that seats 3000 people! Although there was a lot of walking, the day’s tour was definitely worthwhile.

The Peterhouse Girls Pastis Club went to St George’s and had a meaningful discussion with St George’s and Dominican Convent about the importance of varying social interactions and how to maintain them. It was very fruitful as we got advice and opinions from other students and teachers. The girls enjoyed it and they obtained a great learning experience from the different viewpoints within our community.


Interact Visit to Musha weVana
On Thursday 9th May the Interact Club visited the Musha weVana orphanage, where we were greeted by many cheerful faces. The Club gifted the children with sweets which they were all very excited about. We played duck duck goose, on the swings and in the playground. The children all seemed overjoyed with their new friends and were sad when it was time to say goodbye. It was such a wonderful experience to see just how far one’s time can go towards brightening their days.

Support for victims of Cyclone Idai
All the blankets, food and clothing donated to victims of Cyclone Idai were packaged together by the Leo and Interact Clubs. At the end of last term, a 5 tonne truck carrying these family packs went up to Chimanimani and our school prefects distributed them directly to families at Charleswood School. They were all very grateful to you for everything that you donated and many thanks goes to Leo and Interact for all your help in this regard.



During the April holidays 4 of our girls travelled to Cape Town as part of a team of 32 Archers representing Zimbabwe Archery. They competed at the Southern Africa NASP Tournament.

Environmental Club
The Environmental Club had a successful educational trip to Pepsi Cola. The girls learnt how the beverage company uses plastic for their packaging. They also learnt how the company is providing collection bins in public centers. The company is hoping to increase its awareness on proper disposal of the plastic bottles for a clean environment. They have already a project in place whereby they pay people to pick up plastic bottles in their endeavour to clean the environment.

Kukura neShungu Report
Throughout this term, Kukura neShungu has been a success. Our two events combined (the Movie Night and Junior Social) have been the highlights of our fundraising efforts, generating close to $5,000 in funds, with the movie night making $2,600 and the Social making $2,100. We intend to use this money to ensure that the lives of our friends at Kukura neShungu are made better by the generosity and love of the
Peterhouse Group of Schools. Our fundraising, though successful, however has not been our best experience. The simple ability to change someone’s life by your presence and make them feel loved is something that we have been blessed with. Because it is a voluntary club, it is difficult to get people to join but with the dedicated people we have already, we continue to put our best foot forward and change the world by helping others.

Special thanks go to Mr Chiminya and Mrs Fantiso for their unending support and aid. He has been instrumental in our success, and in our quest to put smiles on the faces of every single individual at Kukura ne Shungu.


Poetry Slam
The Peterhouse Boys’ English Department hosted a very successful ‘Poetry Slam’ on Thursday 4th April in the Megahey Centre. Here twenty-eight young poets from Peterhouse Boys and Peterhouse Girls wrote and presented their poems to an audience and a panel of judges (Mr Hanly and Mrs Kapuya). The poems were insightful and a lot of planning went into the recitations. The boys and girls gave an entertaining performance and the audience was both supportive and involved in the proceedings. Mr Davy kept the programme flowing with his witty anecdotes and heartfelt - often very funny - renditions of famous poetry.

Winners of the Competition were:
Juniors: 1st Munesushe Mushosho with 82 points for her poem ‘Ambition’.
Runner Up: TJ Gaziwa (PHB) 72 points for his poem ‘Ambition’.

Middles: 1st S Uriri (PHB) 80 points for his poem ‘Keeping up with the Pack’.
Runner Up: Deborah Davy 77 points for her poem ‘Keeping up with the Pack’.

Service Clubs
Interact visit to Musha weVana
On Thursday 28th February the Interact club visited the local orphanage, Musha weVana. We were welcomed by the ecstatic faces of the little ones; all geared and ready to have fun with the Interact members. The afternoon was well spent. This was the first visit to Musha weVana for new Interact members which challenged them to socialize and interact with children of different ages. Stories were shared, songs were sung and friendships were made. The fine afternoon was rounded off by the Interact board members giving clothes and school shoes to the children; they were very grateful for this kind gesture. The Interact Club thanks all who donated clothing as the children at Musha weVana really appreciated it.

Leo Visit to St Francis
On Monday 4th March, the Peterhouse Leo Club had the opportunity to visit St Francis School. As a club we were able to supply the school with items of stationery. We all took part in various games and activities with the children and had an amazing time interacting with all of them.

Unfortunately, we did not spend much time at St Francis, and it is definitely in our future plans to spend another eventful afternoon with them where we would provide drinks and food for all the children and get to know, as well as build relationships with them all.

As a club we are truly grateful to everyone who made this visit possible, we believe that as a team, if we all work together we truly will fulfil our motto - “We Serve”.
