Gavel Club Report
On Tuesday the 11th of September the Peterhouse Gavel club had the privilege of hosting the Heritage Gavel Club. The afternoon was under the theme, "The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step". The event in itself was indeed a first step for both clubs as it was the first time a Peterhouse Gavel Club had hosted Heritage. Anotidaishe Munyonga, Johnson Marufu started off the official proceedings; followed by Tadiwa Govore, who delivered a provocative speech on the subject of ‘Parents dictating their children's occupations’. David Bore also delivered a speech on "How to fail your A levels”.

Model United Nations
Hosted by St John’s College with eight other competing schools.
The General Assembly discussed “efforts toward the erasure of the black market system”. The Human Rights Council addressed “working towards better integration of disabled persons’ and the Security Council resolved the “methods to maintain optimum efficiency and accountability in peacekeeping missions”.
Our delegates were well prepared, and on their toes, considering the day’s event and topics were received at short notice.
Rufaro Hoto chaired the Security Council. Prince Sithole and Kudakwashe Mapesa were awarded honorable mentions in their rooms.

Music
Full colours awarded to Connor Eksteen, Tariro Manonga, Addmore Mawere, Chayce Ross and Kudzaishe Rufasha.

Service Clubs

First Aid
Service Ties are awarded to Sandile and Wandile Ncube for showing great maturity and dedication in serving First Aid at many sporting events for the past three years.

Interact Club Visit to Musha Wevana
The visit to Musha Wevana is the one which everyone looks forward to and we stopped at a store on the way to buy lollipops for the children. As the children streamed in from school, smiles appeared on the faces of club members because we have begun to recoognise faces and friends we have made since the last two visit we have made. They loved their treats and us spending time some with them. This visit showed us that even something as small as a visit and a treat is greatly appreciated. Interact would like us all to remember this: you might not be able to do a big thing to change the whole world, but you can always do something small to make one person’s day.

It is one of the most challenging Interhouse events that we hold and it is also an essential skill that we all should master as we will use it so often in our adult life.

David Bailey did particularly well, coming a comfortable second in his D-division Scull Race.

Farai Kachuta and Kunashe Mutabeni improved on last week’s performance in the D Division Double Scull coming in a close second, Emmanual Nyamupingidza and Reagan Evans who won their C-Division Double Scull.
