Peterhouse Boys

Community Service

INTERACT CLUB

This is the junior arm of Rotary International. At Peterhouse it is only available to Sixth Form boys and girls.  Selection is by the previous year's members, and is based on letters submitted by hopeful Fifth Formers in the third term of the year.  The club has a committee with President, vice-President, Treasurer.  Committee Members are also selected by the previous year's Committee.

The club meets once a week for either a meeting or a visit to a local beneficiary to establish what their needs are, and how best the club can help. Ways of fund-raising and disbursement of funds are discussed.  This year's funds have been raised by selling roses and chocolates on Valentine’s Day, as well as from the sale of seats at the Interact Variety Show held in the second term.

Beneficiaries have been the Children’s Hospital, the Orphanage, and St Francis School for workers’ children.

The patron at present is Mrs Connie Zaayman.

KUKURA neSHUNGU CLUB

Kukura neShungu is a small school in a high density suburb of Marondera that caters for both mentally and physically challenged children who have been assessed by a local doctor and deemed to be unsuitable to attend school.  Once a week they come to Peterhouse Boys and Peterhouse Girls for an afternoon, and are entertained by a group of pupils of any age. They might  watch documentaries, kick balls, swim, paint, or play marimbas, and always end their afternoon with cool drink and cake.  Our pupils who get involved find it very satisfying and worthwhile.
