Service Club Activities

Leo Weekend - Angus Fergusson
Recently, there were two wonderful events held by the Leo Club in an attempt to raise funds that will go a long way in helping the people in need within the Marondera community.
The dance, held at Peterhouse Boys, was a great success and was definitely a night that will be remembered by all. The great music and perfect use of smoke machines set the atmosphere that brought out the enjoyable side of everyone attending.
Many, many thanks are to go to those that made this event possible; but in particular the Leo Club would like to thank Mr Redfern, Mr. St. John and his team for the amazing lights and sound system that really made this dance worthwhile.
The following day, at the Springvale House Pavilion yet another truly awesome event took place – this was the Leo Fun Day. Many “Funday go'ers” played in the various tournaments (soccer and touch rugby). The adrenaline inducing, inflatable rocket was a huge hit, as well as the tuckshop that sold a range delicious goodies.
Overall, the weekend's events were a great success and the Leo Club would like to pass their thanks and appreciation to all those who helped in pulling these events off.

St George’s Debating - Tadiwa Govore
Attending the event were Mathew Mutsai, Tadiwa Govore, Johnson Marufu, Faizaan Bhadhella and Zivai Sinemani. The evening was run under the theme “Speak your mind, mind your speech - the art of articulation”.
To round up the evening the guest speaker Dr Maraire, an Oxford educated, Zimbabwean neurologist gave an inspiring speech on how the youth, the future of Zimbabwe, should seize the opportunities they have to make the difference our nation desperately needs.

Archery (Interschools NASP competition)
The last archery competition for this term was hosted at Chisipite on Sunday.

Fly fishing Douglas Cox and Terance Sage recently represented Peterhouse at a fly fishing competition in Nyanga. They fished three dams for four hours each and managed to win the competition – Douglas was Best Overall and Best Junior. Terrance came 3rd overall and the Peterhouse team won the competition on weight of trout caught.

There were some seasoned fishermen and over 20 teams at the event so this was a very good effort and we look forward to encouraging more boys to try trout fishing.

Public Speaking
The Gavel Club hosted their first Inter-House Public Speaking competition on Friday 29 June. Tadiwanashe Govore, the Gavel President, and his team organised a slick and very exciting event, successfully raising the profile of public speaking, which was their intention.

Sincere appreciation must go to A.M.G. Global with their continued generous sponsorship for coaches and players golf shirts, tee shirts, caps and medals, as well as drinks and lunches for all staff, well-supported by Introwise.

Sincere appreciation must go to Peterhouse staff who manned all fields and administration areas and they have to be commended for their commitment to duty, despite the inclement conditions.

Sadly after more than a decade of staffing the heartbeat of the festival, the central administration table where all points are gathered collated and published, Miss Patience Mansfield is standing down due to her retirement at the end of 2018. Her long standing dedication and commitment is a testament to her unparalleled standards and character, zeal and drive, respected of Peterhouse staff and pupils alike.

Peterhouse and AMG Global, wish you everything of the best for the future.

We thank you and salute you Miss Mansfield!
