Peterhouse School
Cancer Ward Visit 2014 PDF Print E-mail

At the end of the Lent Term eight of us (four boys and four girls), along with Mrs Van Heerdan and Mr Paunganwa accompanied by two ladies from KidzCan had the enormous privilege of visiting the paediatric ward in Parirenyatwa Hospital where young boys and girls up to the age of twelve are cared for and treated for cancer.

Obviously an experience like this would open the eyes of anyone who visited these kids, kids who haven't had a chance to live life as normal children yet.  We had a chance to interact and meet them and it was no cliché when I say it was a life changing experience not just meeting them but their mothers.

Ironwill 2014 – Matopos PDF Print E-mail

This year Peterhouse sent two teams to Ironwill 2014 at Camp Dwala in Matopos World Heritage Site. Blue Blood (Tom Stubbs, Tristan Stewart, Theresa Zee and Brooke Maison) and Skidmarks (Emma Hough and Stacy Hyslop).

The event is a 4 day multi-stage, multi discipline, ultra endurance adventure race. After the 4 days team will have covered 175km of Matopos on foot, mountain bike and by swimming.  Obviously an enormous amount of training, planning and learning go into the preparation for this event and I have to take my hat off to all these pupils who put hours of effort into this.  The investments were to pay off.

About 75 participants in 25 teams entered in 2014. 16 completed the event.

Zebra Introduced into Calderwood Park 2014 PDF Print E-mail

Our first zebra were released into Calderwood Park on Wednesday 26th March.

The zebra were a generous donation from Mr Irvine of Irvine’s Day Old chicks and their translocation has been from a very similar habitat just south of Harare.

Our Learner Hunter/Guides assisted with the translocation which was a valuable learning experience for them.  

Four separate families were captured and each was released into the boma to calm down before the  gate was opened and they moved freely into the park in their family group.

Facebook Video Clip 2014 PDF Print E-mail

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Re: Video clip

You may have been made aware of or, indeed, you may have seen a video clip which has been circulating on several social media sites (Facebook etc.) since Thursday/Friday of last week. The clip shows an unpleasant scene of junior boys slapping each other on the face on instruction from one/two senior pupils.

I take the matter of bullying very seriously – in this and many other respects Peterhouse has robust and clear policies – and you can rest assured that I deal firmly with matters of this type, however, the You Tube video clip, which has caused so much distress and concern, is 4 years old and involves several boys who are no longer at Peterhouse.   

Archery at Peterhouse 2014 PDF Print E-mail

Peterhouse Boys is now offering [NASP] Archery as a Club.

We are associated to NASP, National Archery in the Schools Programme ( ) and four instructors are qualified to take the Archery Sessions at Peterhouse.  (BAI Certificates have been Obtained through NASP  Zimbabwe).

Archery is a fantastic discipline that requires concentration and focus, it's competitive and just great fun shooting arrows at a target.  It's very safe under the NASP [very strict operational] guidelines and the boys have really enjoyed participating.  We keep a weekly ladder so banter and rivalry keeps boys enthusiastic.  There is a club fee of 30USD per term that goes to covering investment and maintenance costs.

Adventurous Journey, Nyanga - March 2014 PDF Print E-mail

Duke of Edinburgh International Award

Five Peterhouse Boys who are hoping to achieve the Bronze Award this year embarked upon the Adventurous Journey in Nyanga on the 22nd March.

The group joined the 20 boys doing Wheels and Reels for the first night at a Cottage in the Connemara’s, but had to camp out to test their kit (and there was no space left at the inn).  

It rained in the night, which meant tents (and some sleeping bags) were crammed into the back packs wet, soggy and heavy the next morning!  Not the ideal start.
