Night Of Debaters at St George’s College (Dylan Matsika)
On Tuesday 25 July, a group of five boys and five girls, accompanied by Mr Nzanga and Miss Ntini from PHG, attended the St. George’s Annual Evening of Debaters.

The dinner commenced with an ice breaker, which was followed by the humorous St. George’s Head of Debate’s address. Thereafter, we received appetizing starters; this was followed by the main event which was a “crowd pleaser debate showcase”. The motion was: “This House believes that democracy is not possible in a country without absolute freedom of expression”. Both the affirmative and non-affirmative sides gave strong, provocative points that kept the crowd engaged.

After the main meal, it was time for the guest speaker, the world renowned comedian and actor, Sam Farai Monro, who is commonly known as Comrade Fatso. His topic was “Freedom of Speech”.

The night ended with a toast to freedom of expression and a brief social over dessert.

Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

Congratulations to Ivan Rwodzi and Tatenda Saburi who earned their Bronze Awards. 

Congratulations to James Weller who earned his Silver Award. 

Michael Zartmann completed his Gold Award last week. He worked for over 52 weeks at Mountain Biking, Trombone tuition and Conservation. For his Adventurous Journey, he chose to hike the gruelling 65km ‘River to River’ Expedition. Much of this Journey was spent navigating and cutting through virgin bush, vines and thick riverine jungle. The Residential Project is one of the unique aspects of the Gold Award where pupils have to stay in an unfamiliar setting doing voluntary work for five days and four nights. The feedback we received from people running the Kadoma SPCA described Michael as having been ‘exemplary’ on his five day Voluntary Residential Project, where he worked with animals coming into the SCPA in some very difficult and tragic circumstances. Michael is one of the few boys in this school who has done his Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards during his time here at Peterhouse. His first entry for his Bronze Award was while he was in C Block back in 2015! And he has kept going on his Award program ever since. Reading through his reflective reports, he has certainly learnt a great deal from this internationally recognized voluntary youth program and many tertiary institutions and future employers around the world will recognize the self-discipline, self-motivation and sheer perseverance Michael has, in order to have achieved all of this. Michael, very well done. 

Peterhouse Pipe Band and Drum Corps

Last week, we had our first drum corps lesson delivered by Emmanuel Madobo. Pupils who had bought in their Club fees were given their first lesson using drum sticks and drum pads. This is the very beginning of an amazing Club offering you all the opportunity to play in the Pipe Band or Drum Corp. If you are interested in finding out more about this fledgling Club, please speak to Mr Davy or Mr Jera from the Music Department.

Senior Musician of the Year 2019

Three boys competed in this year’s senior musician of the year. It was hosted by PHG, ably adjudicated by Mr Griggs and was the most entertaining evening with eleven senior competitors. We also had a fantastic ‘taster recital’ by the chorus and some main singers from our School Musical. This will be presented later on this term and looks to be an absolute hit.  

Charles Moscrop came second overall with a fantastic singing performance.

Service Club Activities

Interact Club (Natalie Moores)
Many club members took time out last week to spend it with orphans at the Musha we Vana Children’s home. Every minute spent together is so mutually beneficial to all parties involved, simply by taking time out of our normal daily routine and interacting together.

Support for victims of Cyclone Idai
All the blankets, food and clothing donated to victims of Cyclone Idai were packaged together by the Leo and Interact Clubs. At the end of last term, a five tonne truck carrying these family packs went up to Chimanimani and our school prefects distributed them directly to families at Charleswood School. They were all very grateful to you for everything that you donated and many thanks goes to Leo and Interact Clubs for all your help in this regard.

Poetry Slam
The Peterhouse Boys’ English Department hosted a very successful ‘Poetry Slam’ on Thursday 4th April in the Megahey Centre. Here twenty-eight young poets from Peterhouse Boys and Peterhouse Girls wrote and presented their poems to an audience and a panel of judges (Mr R. Hanly and Mrs T. Kapuya). The poems were insightful and a lot of planning went into the recitations. The boys and girls gave an entertaining performance and the audience was both supportive and involved in the proceedings. Mr S Davy kept the programme flowing with his witty anecdotes and heartfelt - often very funny - renditions of famous poetry.

Winners of the Competition are:
Juniors: 1st Munesushe Mushosho with 82 points for her poem ‘Ambition’.
Runner Up: TJ Gaziwa 72 points for his poem ‘Ambition’.

Middles: 1st Shaune Uriri 80 points for his poem ‘Keeping up with the Pack’.
Runner Up: Deborah Davy 77 points for her poem ‘Keeping up with the Pack’.

Seniors: 1st Mati Hove with 81 points for her poem ‘Awake’.
Runner Up: Anesu Mhete with 78 points for her poem ‘Awake’.

History Society
The History Society travelled to Macheke in March with Mr S Walraven and Mr R Hanly to visit some San bushman rock paintings and Bantu Zimbabwe-style ruins. The boys made educated assumptions on the symbolism of the paintings they saw and engaged in a spirited debate on the nature of the hunter-gatherer societies vs our own post-industrial existence. It was fantastic day out culminating with a visit to an exceedingly unique 2m high painting of a battle scene on a rock face. The area left much to be explored and the Society plans on revisiting Macheke in the Trinity Term. A big thank you from the boys to the Bailey family for opening up their farm to us and especially their swimming pool after a hot day out trekking!

World Scholars Cup Regional Round at Hellenic Academy (Blessing Masawi)
The Zimbabwe Regional round of the World Scholars’ cup was held during the FFW hosted by Hellenic Academy.
The Peterhouse delegation consisted of 14 teams (44 pupils in total). 12 of the 14 teams qualified for the Global Round to be held in The Hague, Netherlands, later this year.
Each team had to complete various activities (Collaborative Writing, Debating, Quiz) which were centred on the theme of ‘A World on the Margins’. Three Peterhouse pupils were invited to debate in front of everyone, on the motion ‘That all teenagers should spend one year without electricity.’ One can imagine how emotive that debate got!

The following trophies were awarded:
3rd in the Team Scholars’ Challenge Quiz

Zimbabwe Model United Nations (ZIMUN) (Mudiwa Manikai)
Nineteen of the Peterhouse Model United Nations members were invited to the annual ZIMUN conference from Thursday the 14th to Saturday the 16th of March. This is the biggest Model United Nations Conference held in Zimbabwe and we were honoured to be a part of it. The theme of this year’s ZIMUN was ‘A World Crisis’. It was of utmost importance for each team to embark on comprehensive research on the foreign policies and recent news of our designated nations. We had to find the real world scenario pertaining to the topic of discussion in each committee. It took us weeks to prepare for this conference.

The three days were full of intense discussions in which we tried to solve world problems as best and as fairly as possible - just as the United Nations would do. We were also privileged to be entertained by Amara Brown who was the special guest as well as the Key Note Speaker Fred Swaniker, who talked on the importance of building Africa as a continent.

Well done to all those who participated in the conference and represented Peterhouse. Special congratulations to Kudakwashe Mapesa who chaired the Environmental Commission and Rufaro Hoto who chaired twice, once in the Human Rights Commission and again in the Crisis Committee. Each room consists of 160 delegates, which is six times the size of a normal room. Mufaro Mungoni was selected as the most promising delegate in the advisory panel.

Service Club Activities

Interact Report – Musha weVana Visit (Tapiwa Muranda)

On Thursday the 28th of February the Interact club visited the local orphanage, Musha weVana. We were welcomed by ecstatic faces of the little ones; all geared and ready to have fun with the Interact members. The afternoon was well spent. This was the first visit to Musha weVana for new Interact members, which challenged them to socialize and interact with children of different ages. Stories were shared, songs were sung and friendships were made. The fine afternoon was rounded off by the Interact board members giving clothes and school shoes to the children; they were very grateful for this kind gesture. The Interact club thanks all who donated clothing as the children at Musha weVana really appreciated it.

Leo Visit to St Francis (Taurai Mhete)

On Monday the 4th of March the Peterhouse Leo club had the opportunity to visit St Francis School. As a club we were able to supply the school with items of stationary etc. We all took part in various games and activities with the children and had an amazing time interacting with all of them. 
Unfortunately, we did not spend much time at St Francis, and it is definitely in our future plans to spend another eventful afternoon with them where we would provide drinks and food for all the children and get to know, as well as build relationships with them all.

As a club we are truly grateful to everyone who made this visit possible, we believe that as a team, if we all work together we truly will fulfil our motto - “We Serve”.
