Interact Visit to Kukura Neshungu June 2018

When we set off from school, most of us were worried that this would be an uncomfortable visit where our ability to socialise with the physically and mentally disadvantaged members of the Marondera community would be found wanting.

The visit to Kukura Neshungu was a touching one; we were welcomed by the students who were very happy to see us. We learned about the individuals who learn at Kukura Neshungu and their different "disabilities" and what they are taught at their school. This was what touched most hearts I think. Shaking the hand of a girl who can't make out a greeting back but smiles at you and pulls you in for a hug was a significant life experience.

World Environment Day 2018

Peterhouse Boys and Peterhouse Girls celebrated World Environment Day by wearing something green – there were some very imaginative costumes!

The whole school had a lesson on the theme “Beat Plastic Pollution” in their classrooms with discussion to follow. Some good ideas on how to reduce our plastic pollution at the school have come up and we will be working on reducing the use of single use plastic in the school.

In the busy world we live in, we need to take time to consider how we can care for our environment.

Our Springvale pupils will be celebrating on Headmasters day with a day in Gosho Park and have a similar presentation during assembly.

Malvern House Refurbishment June 2018

At the start of term our Malvern boys returned to their newly refurbished house and, by all accounts, they are delighted with their accommodation.

The project was completed in two phases, starting with the total renovation of the ablution block, and followed by the full refurbishment of the house.

Much has been done to make the space as comfortable as possible for the boys including separate common rooms for the juniors and the seniors. The house is also more spacious as the old Malvern Common Room has now been converted into a sleeping/living space.
