ZAU Open Water Swim at Kushinga Dam 2021

The freedom of swimming in open water.

Recently, the Zimbabwe Aquatic Union (ZAU) organised an Open Water Swim event at Kushinga Dam, adjacent to Peterhouse Girls.

Although some pupils were nervous at first, having never competed in an Open Water event before, once the race started they raced hard and gave it their best. In the end, all of them were over the fear of ‘weeds’ and ‘things’ in the water and just enjoyed themselves.

Some of the events included: 3000m open water swim, 1500m open water swim, 750m open water swim and the 4 x 500m relay.

Peterhouse Girls Leadership Camp 2021

"Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower."

A group of 40 Peterhouse Girls House Prefects excitedly made their way into Gosho Park for the Prefect’s selection camp held over the weekend of Friday 12 November to Saturday 13 November 2021..

Given the option to sleep back in their houses after an afternoon of heavy rain, thunder and lightning, the girls opted to spend the night in the cabins. The atmosphere in Gosho, was characterised by laughter, ominous rain clouds, drenched clothes, strained muscles and stretched patience-yet through it all, singing voices could be heard ringing through the trees after the successful completion of a task.

Peterhouse Girls Speech Day 2021 – Headmistress' Speech

It was the best of times, It was the worst of times.......

This quote is nearly two hundred years old. It’s Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities.

And yet, it rings true today. What will we say in 10 years about our experience of the last two?
Will it be the foundation blocks of fortified character and determination or will it signal the beginning of what was a spiral into self-pity. What we determine today will govern the outcome tomorrow.

Good morning guest of honour, Mrs Sharon Bwanya and Mr Bwanya, the Rector, Mr Jon Trafford and Mrs Trafford, Head of Springvale House, Mr Paul Martin and Mrs Martin, Business Director, Mr Mark Whitaker, Chairman of Exco, Dr Peter Hildebrand, staff, parents and pupils.

I am convinced that Peterhouse remains a place of hope in times of darkness. Along with the rest of the world, we as a school have had our lives turned upside down, but in the midst I have seen teachers go above and beyond the call of duty and I have seen pupils display resilience of extraordinary proportions.
I am proud to be a servant in this institution and it makes me glad to be a woman
