Peterhouse Interact Club – ‘service above self’

The Peterhouse Interact Club works closely with Kukura neShungu, a small organisation based in Marondera that is committed to empowering children and youths with mental and physical disabilities.

Recently the club hosted the Kukura NeShungu Tracksuit Party which proved to be a successful fundraising event.

The evening social was well attended by the D and C block pupils from both schools. The music and dance enabled pupils to socialise under the vigilance supervision of the staff who chaperoned. Juice, cakes and biscuits were provided.

Peterhouse Girls French Outing to Le Café de Paris 2022

In late July our Peterhouse Girls B block, A block and Vth form ‘Frenchies’ went to Le Café de Paris in Harare as part of the girls’ French cultural experience.

The girls managed to order their French meals from delightful little tables set outside in the garden.

Some of the meals sampled, besides the buttery croissants and waffles with ice cream and chocolate sauce, was the delectable salade nordique, salade césar, millefeuille, burger gourmand and Paris Panini.

It was certainly worth the visit as our girls were able to get a feel of the French ambiance and enjoy the French food.

Peterhouse Girls Buckland Arts Competition 2022

Buckland Arts is an annual competition that takes place at Peterhouse Girls: allowing the girls to display their creativity through a variety of cultural activities.

The Competition was initiated by Sue Buckland in honour of her late husband and has taken place every year since then. The competition gives the girls a chance to be innovative and compete in cultural activities that they do not normally participate in throughout the year.

This year’s theme was ‘1980’s Glitz and Glam’. The theme meant to expose the girls to a different era in history from a cultural perspective, and to create an appreciation for different genres of art, dance, music and poetry. The girls embraced the theme and came up with beautiful 1980’s pieces and performances.

Peterhouse Musician of the Year 2022

‘Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common’. Sarah Dessen

After a twenty-year absence, internationally benchmarked Music Examinations have returned to Peterhouse and Zimbabwe. This term we were fortunate to host Paul Coleman, a London College of Music examiner, for three days whilst he evaluated a good number of our music pupils. While the results are still to be published, he spoke very favourably of the pupils he examined. Having internationally recognized music examinations back in Zimbabwe will do much for the development of music in the school.
