AS Level Travel and Tourism Exhibition 2021

The 5th Form Travel and Tourism class held a very successful exhibition earlier this term, in the Megahey Centre, with the aim of marketing three tourist destinations to their peers.

The class was divided into small groups and each group consisted of six pupils who were tasked with marketing different destinations. We chose to do research on the Maldives, Mukuvusi woodlands and the Seychelles because these are destinations that are not very familiar to us as a year group.

Peterhouse Learner Guides Exploring Bulawayo

Our VIth Form Learner Guides recently travelled to Bulawayo to write their National Parks Exams. There are always some surprises in these papers and our pupils are anxiously waiting for their results.

We took the opportunity to visit the Bulawayo Natural History Museum where there are some new displays and plenty of interesting specimens to look at.

Our Learner Guides spent one night in the Matobo National Park – climbed granite whalebacks, looked at bushman paintings and visited the grave of Cecil Rhodes and his ‘View of the World’.

Peterhouse Girls B Block Taking on Chimanimani

Seventy girls, 7 instructors and 6 staff quickly and efficiently packed on the afternoon of Saturday 10th September in anticipation of the early Sunday morning departure.

The 2400m high cliffs of the Chimanimani Mountains greeted the girls upon their arrival at Charleswood Farm. Soon the call of “Packs on” was heard and the girls took off on their 6km hike to the Chimanimani National Parks Basecamp for the first night.

‘Rising’ was at 5.20 on Monday morning and the group of girls volunteering the longer walk had substantially (and impressively) grown from 15 to 24 after a good night’s rest.

Cottage Build in Gosho Park

Gosho Park has some exciting news.

Two new cottages are currently being built adjacent to the Bush Camp. These lovely little two bedroom cottages, with en-suite bathrooms, will be the perfect little get-away into the park for visitors who are not all that keen on camping. The zebra can already be seen investigating the new facilities.

We can’t wait to show you the completed cottages.

New Science Labs in Progress

Turning the negatives into positives.

The lockdown presented the school with the perfect opportunity for some new developments – including turning the old kitchen and laundry at Peterhouse Girls into some new science labs and storage rooms.

Perfect for our budding scientists.

Learner Guides Testing their Skills at Rukuru Camp

Recently our Learner Guide pupils were very fortunate to secure a booking to visit Rukuru – a safari camp near the Zambezi River. It has varied vegetation with mopane woodland, jesse bush and a floodplain not far downstream from Chirundu. With this diversity we were able to study many different trees and there were good populations of elephant, impala, baboon and warthog.

We were out before sunrise and our walks revealed a variety of spoor - pupils were able to identify the different tracks of some nocturnal animals – porcupine, hyaena, mongoose, civet etc. Birding was excellent and we observed riverine species and large numbers of aquatic birds on the banks of the river. We went through the SCI methods of measuring trophies and put this into practice when we found skulls on our walks.

A Brighter Art-space for Creativity

The new Peterhouse Girls Art rooms are starting to brighten and fill up with busy pupils happily stationed in the new space, making 'productive mess' and noise as they cheerfully go about their creative pursuits.

The beautiful natural light and abundant counter space is appreciated and already well utilised as the A block continue to compile their coursework for the upcoming examination.

Whilst a few last finishing touches are needed to make the room abundantly bright and inspiring, the shelves are filled with books to inspire and objects waiting to be drawn.
