A Block Matopos Trip 2019

A Block Post IGCSE Trip to the Matopos – Camp Dwala

Upon investigation, I turned out that less than 15 people in A Block (PHB) had ever been to the Matopos area of Zimbabwe. So, we decided to take them (PHB and PHG) there for their A Block trip directly after their IGCSEs were over. This part of our beautiful country is actually a world heritage site and hosts a record concentration of rock art in the world.

So, we moved adventure kit, accommodation, kitchen equipment, 170 staff and pupils, with all their food, down to Camp Dwala for one week. Thank goodness we had the support of Outward Bound Zimbabwe, who came down to conduct our adventure activities and accompany the hikes.

Ian Fowlds Awarded DOEIA Gold 2019

Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

Congratulations to Ian Fowlds for achieving his Gold Award.

Ian Fowlds started his Duke of Edinburgh’s Award in February 2015. Ian is one of the few boys at Peterhouse who has achieved his Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards and we congratulate him on this great personal achievement. He tackled the tough River to River Adventurous Journey in Nyanga National Park and was a mentor for junior musicians for a week at Music Camp for his Residential Project.

To complete the standards required for a Gold Award, he did 52 weeks of rowing, library work and bridge. Well done Ian!


Honours Awards 2019

 The Honours Tie is the highest award which can be bestowed upon any Peterhouse pupil. It is to recognize those who live the life others should aspire to, who live by the very values we champion. 

Farai Musimwa
The first recipient of an honours tie this year has been involved in Christian Forum, Choir, Pecha Kucha, the Gavel and Leo clubs. He was involved in distributing aid to victims of Cyclone Idai. He has been a head chorister in the senior choir and over the years has performed in several school musicals. He has been captain of both Cricket and Hockey and a Grinham House prefect. He is diplomatic by instinct and he is both a popular and well-respected member of his peer group. Above all else he is an exemplar of someone who has added much to Peterhouse as a result of his strong and abiding sense of service to serve.

Leavers Service 2019

On Tuesday 12th November we bid farewell to our Peterhouse Boys Class of 2019.

Our Leavers gathered in the Chapel to receive some sound advice on life after school from Petreans Dr Peter Hildebrand and Mr Brynn Mullen, before each being handed a Petrean Tie.  A special Leavers Chapel Service was held, with some parents in attendance, after which our Leavers gathered in the Great Court for their final War Cry.   We wish our leavers everything of the best for the future. 

Rector’s Address 

Leavers’ Service Michaelmas 2019
So that’s it then – we’re all leaving, the sixth form and me and a few others too, most notably, from this particular place, Ryan Torrie, our chaplain. For all of us there is a new chapter to be written, a new phase of our life to unfold and with that comes excitement and anticipation and perhaps some nervousness too.
