Peterhouse Receives Outstanding Results in the Annual Eisteddfod

Throughout the month of March, the NIAA Vocal & Instrumental Eisteddfod took place, IN PERSON (a pleasant diversion from the virtual scene) in Harare. This was a mammoth task, and our very many thanks go to, not only Mr Jera, Mr Milupi and Mrs Covini & the music staff who worked tirelessly preparing the candidates for the biggest performance of the year, but also to the pupils for their commitment and tenacity having to learn and perform on borrowed time.

We celebrated their achievements by holding an Eisteddfod Highlights Concert earlier this week.

All in all, Peterhouse did superbly.

Peterhouse Girls House Plays 2022

Let us take you on a journey through history, through tales of death, deceit, courage, loyalty, innocence and revenge …

Events like this don't just "come together". These talented girls have been working on these plays since December, from the inception of ideas, to writing the plays and editing the scripts.

Then, a flurry and blur as practice schedules are reintegrated with a delayed start to the term, designing programme art, auditions, casting, and communication in all directions ... rehearsals, rehearsals... rehearsals! Props, costumes, stage sets, sound, lighting, backdrops, cues, prompts. More rehearsals!

Peterhouse Kushinga Rowing Regatta 2022

“The Greater The Difficulty, The More Glory In Surmounting It.” — Epictetus

This probably held true for our Peterhouse rowers over the weekend as they faced some difficult weather during the first half of the morning. The Peterhouse Kushinga Regatta was held at Kushinga Dam on Sunday 27th March, it was a trying morning, as schools competed against each other, often in the pouring rain. Our rowers did very well despite the weather and really pulled together as a club and a team.

A huge thank you to our amazing and supportive parents, and helpers, for their involvement in the many aspects of running a regatta on home ground. Nothing was too much trouble and the organisation was on point.

The results were as follows:

Lara Weller receives Silver at DOE

Congratulations to Lara Weller on being awarded her ‘Silver’ for the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.

Silver is the second level of the Award, and takes a minimum of 6 months to complete if you have completed Bronze.

There are three specific sections—Voluntary Service, Skills and Physical Recreation—that activities have to be chosen from, plus an Adventurous Journey to complete.

If a pupil is already playing a sport, learning a skill (e.g. learning to drive or play a musical instrument), or helping others in the community, once registered, they will be able to use these activities to count towards the required hours.

Learner Guides Weekend in Gosho Park 2022

“Time spent among trees is never time wasted.”

The Learner Guides classes spent two nights in our very own Gosho Park recently – we are so fortunate to have this facility right on our doorstep.

Topics covered throughout the weekend included tracks and tracking, animal approaches and observations, diets, vegetation with some practice at using a dichotomous key to identify trees.

Mrs. Orphanides gave a lecture and practical session on birds and birding - the bird hide being perfect for observation.
