Peterhouse Boys

Rifa Conservation Education Camp 2020

Our Learner Guides group went up to Rifa last week and they had a great learning experience – sadly we were missing the Zambian pupils. Bush walks were done in the morning to identify animals, birds, trees, tracks etc. and we covered a variety of different habitats e.g. mopane woodlands, floodplain and riverine vegetation.

Sitting at the mopane pan waterhole doing bird identification we were visited by four elephant bulls, drinking and splashing mud around, magic experience!

Mr de Kock led an excellent detailed dissection of impala – pupils were fully involved learning about the cardio/respiratory system digestion etc. They made biltong, boerewors and a potjie for supper. The remains of the carcass went out for a vulture watch and this also brought in the hyaenas at night.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

RE: FROM THE RECTOR’S DESK

Rumours abound, yet we are no closer to a definitive answer on a date for the re-opening of the school for our examination classes. Nonetheless, we have been in touch with our local Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education, and they have provided us with some useful feedback; based on this, we have directed a letter of appeal requesting permission to open the school in preparation for the Cambridge examinations, which start on 1 October.

Harvard International Debate Tournament 2020

Five boys from the Peterhouse Boys Debate Team represented Peterhouse and Zimbabwe at the Harvard World Schools International Debating Tournament just after half term of Lent 2020.

The team comprised of Darevy Matsika ( Captain) , Shaune Uriri, Kavwanga Lintini, Tanaka Kunaka and Kuzivakwashe Kuhleya is the first Zimbabwean High School team to have participated in this prestigious tournament.

The boys spoke with zeal and a level of confidence that I had never witnessed before; winning their first match with distinction. More matches were won as the tournament progressed and although we were finally knocked out after round 7 of 10; the boys did us proud.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

RE: FROM THE RECTOR’S DESK

The long fixture free break seems a distant memory and the whole school has quickly returned to the routines of online learning. The feedback from staff is that the classes have restarted with relative ease and there is a good degree of engagement from pupils with lessons. Nevertheless, in a senior tutors meeting this week, there were some robust conversations around ensuring that our online platforms remain meaningful and rigorous.

Duke of Edinburgh’s Residential Project 2020

Three pupils managed to complete their Residential Projects at La Rochelle Country home earlier this year. They stayed there for four nights and worked in the gardens and on the Organic Farm for five days.

The staff at La Rochelle could not have been more welcoming and hospitable and were willing to share their knowledge of propagation, pruning, taking cuttings, as well as expose the pupils to the rigors of raking fallen leaves, picking calendula flowers on the organic farm as well as cleaning and trimming pathways in the gardens.

It was a fantastic learning experience.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

RE: FROM THE RECTOR’S DESK

The mock examinations are all but complete, and the staff are well into marking scripts. As with all things new, there have been challenges on many levels in running a formal assessment process online. Notwithstanding this, I would like to extend my thanks to the parent body for your support and assistance in managing this examination cycle. Once the marking and moderation of examinations is completed we will be able to provide a more reliable and accurate assessment of how the examination process has worked.
