Peterhouse Boys

Acrylic Art Club 2017

Advanced Acrylic Art is Club being offered as part of the Extra Curricular program at Peterhouse. Artist Nick Stobart comes every Monday afternoon from 1500hrs to 1800Hrs and will readily accept any boy interested in painting, from D Block to 6th Form.

The idea of this Club is to instill in the pupils a deep and lasting passion and love for art, an appreciation of the fact that anyone can do art in some form and receive huge contentment in the whole creative process.

All the basic and more advanced techniques involved in acrylic art are taught to the pupils who sign up to this Club. All art materials are imported and supplied by Mr. Stobart. We concentrate on Landscapes but techniques learned can be applied to any subject.

Malvern House Ablutions Renovations July 2017

After a slighted disjointed start to the Trinity Term Malvern boys have moved back into their House now that the recent renovations of the ablution block have been completed.

The total renovation of the house will take place in phases; with areas of high priority taking preference.

The ablution block has been a much needed upgrade and we can’t wait to get started on the rest of the House on a date still to be set.

Class of 1987 Class Reunion July 2017

Thirty years after the class of ‘87 passed out through the Peterhouse pyramids for the last time, we finally resolved to get our act together and have a reunion in July 2017.

Our class has been connected by social media for a decade – through the ‘Peterhouse School Zimbabwe – Hallowed Class of ’87’ group on Facebook – but our classmates have physically spread out across the globe over three decades and so this was no small undertaking. We were overwhelmed by the response as several of Petreans travelled from far away to see their old schoolmates – two from Australia, one each from the U.K., Norway, Switzerland and Kenya and seven from South Africa, with a strong contingent of Zimbabwean residents. It was fantastic to see such commitment to get together and catch up.

Interact Variety Concert 2017

The Peterhouse Interact Club held its annual Variety Show dubbed ‘Fight Night’ from Tuesday the 11th to Thursday the 13th Of July in the Fieldsend Hall. Club members worked hard to put the show together and the atmosphere suited the theme. Acts ranged from ‘boxers’, to rappers, hip hop dancers and choirs; to duets, crowd pleasers and fashion modelling.

Special guest performances from Vera, accompanied by her band (Mr Covini on the drums) and Petrean ‘Don Don’ added some spice to the show, not excluding the professionally managed lights and sound that we were privileged enough to have (Thanks to Mr St John).

Nursery School Day of the Fairy Tale 2017

In recognition of ‘The Day of the Fairy Tale’ children at the Peterhouse Nursery School were encouraged to come dressed as their favourite fairy tale character for the day.

The day was spent discussing the various fairy tales and admiring each other’s costumes (or helping Tin Man with his outfit). The Peterhouse D Block (Form 1) boys came to read fairy tales to small groups of children as part of their English lesson, while acting out the stories as best they could. The Peterhouse C Block (Form 2) boys also visited the nursery school to play fairy tale inspired games.

Huntin’ Shootin’ Fishin’ 2017

This past Half Term, Peterhouse competed in the Huntin’Shootin’Fishin’ competition at Troutbeck. It is a great honour to be able to compete in this event, with 34 other teams, mainly comprising of very experienced adults. We use the name Rock Solid Kings, derived from the name of the first horse we had in our first team in 2013.

Olivia Wilding Davies was our rider this year, who, on her trusty steed called Woodford, had to jump a hectic cross country event, complete a hit and hurry show jumping course and end her challenge on Sunday by having to ride through a layer of plastic bottles and through hanging foam rubber spikes. The entire riding course was absolutely beautiful and very challenging this year.

Confirmation 2017

We were delighted to hold our annual Confirmation Service on Thursday 22nd June. The Rt Rev Dr Chad Gandiya, the Bishop of Harare, together with Bishop Peter Hatendi confirmed 42 boys and 29 girls at the Peterhouse Girls Chapel.

The highlight for most of the boys and girls was the Confirmation Retreat on the weekend previous, which was excellently hosted by Zambesi Holidays and combined plenty of fun with real spiritual value.

Our school chaplains have often praised “Zam Hols” for their commitment to - and investment in - Peterhouse over many years, and encourage every boy and girl at Peterhouse to go on a Zambesi Holidays camp in any of the school holidays - find them on Facebook for more information.
