A Block at Far n Wide 2017

While a great many of Zimbabwe’s post IGCSE pupils head out to party, the Peterhouse pupils embark on the Far and Wide experience in the Nyanga Mountains. For some the FOMO of not being on O Break still batters their attitude! But, for the vast majority these days, the F&W experience has become a healthy part of tradition at Peterhouse, and is one they look forward to for many reasons: building relationships has come to be the cornerstone of the trip, but many pupils learn a lot about the strengths of diversity in groups, particularly how the opposite sex’s strengths usually counter their own gender’s weakness! All pupils grow in self-awareness; develop resilience, responsibility and resourcefulness. Everyone leaves with a sense of pride in some aspect of their accomplishment.

Global Leadership Summit – Youth Leadership Programme 2017

The Global Leadership Summit (GLS) exists to transform Christian leaders around the world with an injection of vision, skill development, and inspiration. Every year over 400 000 leaders attend the summit in some 140 countries around the world.

Recently Peterhouse has partnered with the GLS team in Zimbabwe and this year our partnership has developed and run two [mini] GLS programmes for senior pupils in schools (we describe these as GLS Youth Leadership Programmes). The first was for our senior pupils at Peterhouse (this intervention won applause (first place) from the GLS youth development team in Chicago)

Leavers Service 2017

We bid farewell to our Petreans of 2017 on Tuesday 14th November during a fitting and memorable Leavers Service in the Peterhouse Chapel.

An amusing and humorous, yet meaningful and thoughtful, address was given by Mr Lenard Mudiwa, who is himself also leaving at the end of this year, to take up Headship of Lendy Park School.

It is always an emotional time for staff and parents as we watch them sing their last war-cries with the school body.

We wish these young men all the best in the future and do hope they stay in touch via the Petrean Society.

Duke of Edinburgh International Award Training 2017

This week we hosted three trainers from the Duke of Edinburgh Award at Peterhouse to conduct training on the Award for staff from various ATS schools. Chisipite Senior School, St Johns College, Falcon College, St Andrews International School from Malawi and Peterhouse all sent delegates for training on various aspects of running the Award in Zimbabwe.

The training was top quality and great, great fun. We really got to know one another well and had a good time working together.

We held a special dinner on one of the evenings, where all the pupils at Peterhouse who are doing their Silver and Gold Awards could meet with the trainers and hear from two Gold Awarders who have just achieved this incredible level during their time at Peterhouse.
