The tour included visits to:
• the Sorrento, Naples and Amalfi coastal region in Italy to study rivers, gorges, caves, headlands and bays

Blue Cross Challenge 2017

Terance Sage, Tawanda Chauruka, Holly Wallace and Reuben de cock set off on the 30th July to conquer the Blue Cross Challenge – on horseback!

This is a 500km journey through the most beautiful areas of Zimbabwe – from the lowest point, Mahenya to the Highest Point, Mnt Nyangani.

The pupils rode, walked and ran for 12 days, reaching the top of the mountain on the 15th August. The journey was really tough physically and mentally. Most days we were up and active for 14hrs of the day.

MTB SPUR Final Interschools MTB Ride 2017

Peterhouse hosted the final Interschools SPUR Mountain Bike event this weekend.

Falcon drove up with 10 riders and Lomagundi arrived with 5 riders – an excellent effort on their part. We are always so impressed at the lengths these two schools will go enable their pupils to compete.

All in all, we had roughly 40 riders – with ages ranging from 4 years old to the veterans consisting of pupils, parents and members of our Marondera Community. It was fabulous fun. Tony Borlase had created the most incredible route – with some very technical but beautiful tracks through the kopjies and miombo woodland in Calderwood Park.

Sister Act 2017 - A New Disco Musical

If you loved the 1990s Hollywood hit Sister Act, then this musical will make you say “Whoopi!”

It opens in a seedy disco and closes at a papal mass. In between, there's music, mayhem, and just maybe, a little divine intervention.
Sister Act is the divine, feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet! Featuring original music, this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The original film's locations of Reno and San Francisco have been changed to philadelphia and the action now is set in the 1970s. This lets the show indulge in the sounds and images of seventies disco, funk, soul, and even rap. It's a change that inspires a lot of energy as well as plenty of laughs.

Conservation Update August 2017

Gosho Park
The roof at Hikers is being replaced and the new roof will cover a much bigger area. We are also going ahead with the final section of the electric fence. Two blesbok males were introduced into the park and we are expecting an adult male giraffe fairly soon.

It is nearly holidays and the Peterhouse Girls office is not open all the time for bookings. Please think ahead and make accommodation bookings before the end of term - or you will have to take pot luck! Next term already has a lot of school bookings so please check beforehand if you want to use the park. While staff have the privilege of free entry, please ensure that all guests pay entry fees and everyone is expected to pay for camping.

All Star Africa Namibia Archery 2017

The Zim teams experienced 3 days of hectic archery in windy desert like conditions in Windhoek, Namibia.

NASP National teams from SA, Namibia , Zim and Botswana and Development teams including Centreshot made it a full program and a logistic exercise that was well handled by the hosts.

Team bronze for Development 3D and bulls eye, and the same for the National team.

Lots of individual medals won by our many juniors in both teams, and Top senior female 3D archer adding to the haul.

A very memorable but tough tour this year with our young and mostly inexperienced teams finding the conditions and competitors hard to handle.
