Learner Guide Trip to Mururu 2021

Learner_Guides_Mururu_Trip1Our Sixth Form learner guides recently attended the ‘Mururu’ training course under the guidance of the Zimbabwe Professional Guides Association (ZPGA) in the Dande Safari Area.

What a wonderful opportunity it turned out to be with volunteer lecturers with years of experience teaching our pupils a variety of topics such as – guided walks, firearms and shooting practice, bush-craft making string and fire, scorpions, bones and skulls, trophies and skins, tree identification and wild flowers, tracking, bird identification, spiders and butterflies, National Parks laws and first aid, backpacks and safety briefings, vehicle maintenance and fixing punctures – the list goes on.

The more advanced learners, hoping to do their proficiency later in the year, spent hours tracking buffalo in thick bush under the tuition of experienced hunters and shared their experiences with us.

Meet Andy Schultz - Transport & Workshops Manager 2021

Andy joined the Peterhouse Group in January 2021 as the Transport and Workshops Manager.

Andy began his adventurous career as a commercial diver in the North Sea. During his time on the oil rigs he also qualified as a Life Support Technician and Lead Mechanic. He was later promoted from working under water to above water, when he became Installation and Commissioning Engineer, building the rigs rather than repairing them.

He is also an experienced and passionate Strength and Conditioning Coach and CrossFit Coach. At the tender young age of 3, he cut off the sleeves of his favourite shirt because he wanted to look like the Incredible Hulk. Thankfully he has grown out of this stage, but his desire to help people improve themselves through physical fitness and strength has remained unwavering. To this end Andy also owned a Commercial Gym and CrossFit Gym whilst working offshore where he dedicated his time back home to helping others discover their own inner “Incredible Hulk.”

Dear Parents and Guardians,

RE: FROM THE RECTOR’S DESK

Please note the following with respect to the issue of a deviation to the revised term dates for 2021.
• As an ATS member, we will respect the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education’s (MOPSE) directive that our request for a deviation to the revised term dates was not granted and we will adhere to the revised dates set out by the Ministry.

What I love the most about Peterhouse is the support we give each other in different aspects of the school, be it Basketball or Debate, we unite as a school and give our best support to our fellow school mates who are out there making us proud.
