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.

Well done to our pupils who took part in this event.

Congratulations to Tayleigh Taylor, C Block, who was second out of the water in the 1500m and Timea Schultz, A Block, who was third out of the water in the 750m.

Many thanks to Aiden Blignaut and the Peterhouse Boat Club for providing water safety and thanks also to our volunteer parents, Pieter and Emsie Brits, on the safety kayak. They were awesome!
