Peterhouse Girls – Environment Club Trip to Pepsi Cola 2022

Last term our Peterhouse Girls Environmental Club girls, especially those who study Chemistry, Physics and Biology, had a great time learning interesting processes during a tour to the Pepsi Cola Company in Harare.

The water purification process and recycling of plastic bottles was explained thoroughly.

The impact on Chlorination and Sand purification was fascinating.

All in all this was an exciting field trip for our girls.


Peterhouse Music Food & Wine Festival 2022

After a two year break, our Peterhouse Music, Food and Wine Festival sprung into life on Saturday 10th September.

Held on the Springvale House field, opposite Gosho Park, the Peebles Pavilion transformed into a stunning concert venue with a carefully curated array of music. Kicking off the afternoon we welcomed Deon with his country set, followed by FaB Ovation with some golden oldies. The Basics were up next with some good old folk music and Sunn Tee with a selection of great Jazz. The Tribe took over for our sundowner set before DJ JonSolo took over for some EDM and House to get everyone up and dancing.

Peterhouse Equestrian Centre Paper Chase 2022

How many schools are able to set up their very own Interhouse Paper Chase on horseback?

Recently, the Peterhouse Equestrian Centre held just an event on the grounds, and along a similar route to the equine cross-country course, which borders Gosho Park.

Teams of pupils, of differing age groups and abilities, were grouped together and tasked with navigating the course, while stopping to read questions pinned to trees and jotting down their ‘true or false’ answers. In-between each question, a little jump would need to be completed by a member of the group, experienced in jumping that height.

Peterhouse Girls ICT Trip to Econet 2022

Last term, fourteen excited A Block (Form 4) girls set out to visit and learn more about the nation’s mobile network of choice, Econet. When they arrived at the Pockets Hill Data Centre, the girls were greeted by high walls and security cameras.

They were welcomed by two very knowledgeable members of the Econet engineering team, who took the girls straight to the board room for a presentation on the network infrastructure.

They discussed the correct terminology to use in responses to IGCSE examination Networks questions and allowed the girls to ask relevant questions.

Once the oral presentation was completed, the girls were taken on a tour around the Data Centre.

Peterhouse Blood Donation 2022

It’s been quite a while since our Peterhouse pupils have been able to donate blood to the National Blood Transfusion Service of Zimbabwe (NBTZ).

Based in the Sanatoriums at each school, there were queues of senior pupils outside before the nurses were even able to set up.  Screening was done and our anxious volunteers waited patiently to be able to give the gift of blood.

Thank you, to each and every pupil, who made a donation – this will go a long way to helping those in critical need.

Kutandara Marimba Group Visits Peterhouse 2022

This term the Peterhouse Music Department was delighted to welcome Kutandara, a USA based marimba group in conjunction with WINAD Trust music school.

The day started in the morning with the group giving a concert and marimba workshops at Springvale House.

Later in the afternoon, our high school marimba bands also had an opportunity to work with this group as a music exchange.

In the evening, we were given a spectacular marimba concert in the Peterhouse Girls Music Centre.

Many thanks to Kutandara for managing to visit Peterhouse during their short stay in Zimbabwe.

Peterhouse Girls Religious Studies Trip 2022

The A Block IGCSE Religious Studies class enjoyed a fruitful outing to a Mosque and met with the leaders of an Islamic School in Waterfalls, Harare.

The pupils, having covered most of the Islamic syllabus, were able to ask questions and understood some of the concepts in detail. Learning outside the classroom brought religion to life and made it more practical.

This positive encounter is sure to equip our pupils for their forthcoming IGCSE examination.
