Peterhouse Boys

Cricket Tour to Grahamstown, January 2020

12 first team players, Sue Moore-Gordon (Manager) and I arrived in Grahamstown on the evening of 7th January to compete in a cricket festival hosted by Graeme College, Kingswood College and St Andrews College. We were well looked after at Graeme College for the duration of the tour.

Wednesday 8th – We had a T20 match vs Kingswood (at Kingswood) as a warm up match for the festival. Peterhouse batted first but got off to a terrible start, losing our first 3 wickets for only 12 runs. But thanks to some good batting from Govore (48), Saul (23) and Kotze (20) we managed to reach 128 for 7 wickets. A very respectable total on an extremely slow outfield.

Thanks to some quality bowling we restricted the opposition to 100 for 6 wickets. The stand out bowler being Mataranyika who ended up with figures of 3 wickets for 8 runs off his 4 overs.
Peterhouse won by 28 runs.

Getting Back onto the Water with Rowing Camp 2020

During the last week of the holidays we hosted a very successful rowing camp at the School.

Our young rowers came in loaded down with rest and good living. After their first session on the ergs to do their time-trials, there was much groaning as the aches and pains crept in. It did not take long though, for our athletes to get back into the swing of things, so with some good time on the water, strength and conditioning from Mr. Matiringe and lots of time on the ergs, our oarsmen and oars women have every chance of success in this next season.

Workers’ Childrens Christmas Party 2019

On the day after term ended there was much excitement surrounding the annual Workers’ Childrens Christmas Party – this is an annual event that takes place in the Peterhouse Boys Junior Dining Hall.  Little children could hardly contain their excitement as they streamed through the doors to find seats as close to the Christmas Tree as possible.

The Rector, Mr Howard Blackett, opened the proceeding with a short speech he had prepared for the children, in Shona, his final speech at Peterhouse. Shortly after the music was turned up and the dancing competitions started. The children were then treated to a delicious Christmas lunch provide by Introwise.

Many thanks to Mr Tonderayi Nzanga for coordinating this event and to all who donated presents.
