Rowing South African Rowing Champs 2020 - Roodeplaat Dam
Our young rowers went to the SA Champs which were held at Roodeplaat Dam in Pretoria, South Africa, on the 1st March, to compete in the Regatta held over the first weekend of March from the 6th to 8th 2020. It was a wonderful experience for our rowers. A great deal of hard work and effort went into getting our athletes ready to compete down South. The team of parents and support staff were phenomenal; from Nigel and Sophie Weller, who towed the boats down (a noble task), to Laura Evans- our extremely competent tour manager- Sarah Shoesmith, the come-along-mum had boundless energy and limitless enthusiasm; Sean Davy, Hannah Coetzee and Aiden Blignaut who have spent hours on the water refining the technique of our athletes. The pupils were fed copious quantities of food and they were well looked after.

All our athletes did well. They have come away richer from the experience and the high levels of competition, but of particular note were Kayla Kalweit and Genevieve Shoesmith. Kayla managed to achieve a Gold in the Under 16 Single Scull race, and Genevieve and Kayla achieved a Silver Medal in their Under 16 Double Scull.

Emmanuel Nyamupingidza and Reagan Evans also did well. They both narrowly missed a Bronze medal in the Under 16 double scull race; doing very well to come in fourth.

A huge thank you goes out to all our Rowing Parents who spend a great deal of their time and money supporting their children in this incredible sport.

Model United Nations
On Wednesday the 3rd of March ten delegates from the Peterhouse Model United Nations participated in the Westridge Conference that was held at Westridge High School. Though it was a small conference, this was a good platform to send out these new delegates to learn and experience what a real conference feels like. All the delegates were quite excited and enthusiastic from the moment the bus left the school. The Peterhouse delegates were split into two rooms in which the debates took place. The delegates managed to come up with some interesting ways to deal with some of the crisis the world is currently facing, like the ongoing migration and global warming. The Peterhouse delegation was very engaged and active in the debates, showcasing their research and debating skills. The event was capped off with the awarding of the certificates in which all the delegates from Peterhouse each received certificate. Overall it was a great conference for the new members and hopefully it has made them better delegates.

Debate Tour to Pretoria December 2019
From the sixth to the tenth of December 2019; eight Peterhouse Boys participated in the Southern African Top Schools Tournament in Pretoria, South Africa where they represented Zimbabwe together with three other ATS schools. The boys were in competition with over three hundred delegates from different nations including: Namibia, Mozambique, Zambia and the hosts South Africa. As expected the tournament was quite challenging and fiercely competitive, but despite the fierce competition, our boys; both juniors and seniors won some of their matches convincingly. One adjudicator described them as being 'very strong academically'. The experience was truly inspiring and our debaters now look forward to showcasing their newly acquired style of debating at the March 2020, Harvard Tournament in the USA.

ATS Debate Training Workshop
Thirty debaters from our debate clubs attended a very good ATS Debate Training Workshop on Tuesday 21st January in the Hodgson Room. This was conducted by a competent lawyer and the current St George’s College Debate Consultant, Advocate Murondoti, from Harare. It was meant to equip our pupils with the modern World Style Debate Motion Analysis and argument presentation devices. The workshop also covered the roles of speakers, debating lexis and other important aspects.

This platform prepared our American-bound debate team for the upcoming grueling contests against some of the world's best speakers. Everyone, including all the staff who were there, really enjoyed it.

Interact Club (Madeleine Norton)
On the 23rd of January 2020, the Peterhouse Interact Club along with Mrs Mudiwa, Mrs Changa and the new Interact Members, visited Musha WeVana - the orphanage in Marondera.

We bought the children numerous packets of sweets and they accepted them with bright smiles and grateful hands. We spent time with each child- whether it was innocently swinging or playing an intense soccer match. The experience was memorable for each one of us. The opportunity to make even the smallest difference is something the Interact Club strives for and visiting the orphanage helps us achieve that goal.

It was profound to watch the new Interact members visit the orphanage for the first time, as they barely stopped smiling or laughing with the children. Each new attendant left the orphanage with a thankful heart and an urge to continue the work that Interact has set out to do.

We ended the visit with a final song and prayer, led by one of the boys, which bought us all together before we said our goodbyes and departed.

Ultimate Frizzbee
Harare has a thriving Ultimate Frizzbee Club and invited our team to play them recently. We were beaten 11 – 5. This sport is excellent in teaching positional play and very good for fitness. We are playing the Zamhols team at Peterhouse in February.
