Meet Brenda Leipe - Deputy Director of Sport

Brenda joined Peterhouse Girls in 2022 as Deputy Director of Sport and is also the live-in member of staff in Kathleen House. She is a qualified IAAF Specialist Coach and is passionate about all other sport as well. She is committed to trying to help children to become the best that they can be on the sports fields.

In her many years of coaching sport, she has coached a number of athletes to become National and African Champions on the athletics field. She has represented Zimbabwe in athletics, golf, hockey and B team squash, captaining a number of those teams.

While she is passionate about helping every child to get better at a skill at any level, a number of the children Brenda has coached over the years have gone on to obtain scholarships to American universities. These young men and women have been able to use sport to shape their futures, and this has fulfilled Brenda’s vision of ‘changing children’s lives through sport’.

Celebrating Book Day 2022

Book Day was held recently and we saw a wonderful array of costumes throughout the morning. Pupils and staff dressed up as characters from some of their favourite books and were quizzed to ascertain if they had actually read them.

From Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland and Little Red Riding Hood to the Cat in the Hat – even Indiana Jones was seen adventuring on campus.

There were even 101 Dalmatians (ok maybe just four) and a quite by chance - Cruella de vil.

What a wonderful way to inspire a love of books at Peterhouse.

Then & Now - Computerisation in 1985

Back in 1985 Peterhouse had just two computers. They were a very precious commodity and only boys in the Computer Club, who had scrambled fast enough to sign up, had access to them. They were kept locked away in a staff study and for some, the technology was either exciting, or intimidating – some staff hoped they’d go away in time – a new fad and all that!

Fast forward 37 years and we can hardly imagine a world without computers.

The Peterhouse Group now has 8 full computer labs to accommodate classes of 20- 25 pupils at a time. There are desktops, laptops, iPads and devices with every pupil connected in some way or another.

Imagine the world in another 30 years’ time!

Learner Guide Trip to Nyakasanga 2022

Our Learner Guide pupils had the privilege of a trip to the Nyakasanga Fishing Camp, a beautiful area, right on the Zambezi River downstream of Chirundu.

It’s a beautiful area right on the river bank where we watched several sunsets. We spent two full days fishing on the river in hired boats and we spent time covering the ichthyology section of our syllabus.

Everyone caught fish and there were three good size tiger – one of which was used for a dissection. Other fish included chessa, imbiri, bream, barbel, top minnows and some yabbies caught in the trap.

Peterhouse Rowing at the RSA National Champs 2022

Over the fixture free weekend, Reagan Evans (PHB), Emmanuel Nyamupingidza (PHB), Daniella Phiri (PHG) and Lara Weller (PHG) travelled to Roodeplaat Dam in South Africa to compete in the SA National Champs for rowing. This was a tough regatta where the rowers competed against many university rowers and SA national crews.

On the Saturday, both Emmanuel and Reagan won their Junior men’s under 18 single scull heats to move on to the final where they came 4th and 6th respectively in a tough race. On the same day the rowers came 6th in the Men’s A double final which is an amazing result as the winners were men from the SA National crew.
