Peterhouse Boys

Then & Now - Computerisation in 1985

Back in 1985 Peterhouse had just two computers. They were a very precious commodity and only boys in the Computer Club, who had scrambled fast enough to sign up, had access to them. They were kept locked away in a staff study and for some, the technology was either exciting, or intimidating – some staff hoped they’d go away in time – a new fad and all that!

Fast forward 37 years and we can hardly imagine a world without computers.

The Peterhouse Group now has 8 full computer labs to accommodate classes of 20- 25 pupils at a time. There are desktops, laptops, iPads and devices with every pupil connected in some way or another.

Imagine the world in another 30 years’ time!

Learner Guide Trip to Nyakasanga 2022

Our Learner Guide pupils had the privilege of a trip to the Nyakasanga Fishing Camp, a beautiful area, right on the Zambezi River downstream of Chirundu.

It’s a beautiful area right on the river bank where we watched several sunsets. We spent two full days fishing on the river in hired boats and we spent time covering the ichthyology section of our syllabus.

Everyone caught fish and there were three good size tiger – one of which was used for a dissection. Other fish included chessa, imbiri, bream, barbel, top minnows and some yabbies caught in the trap.

Over the fixture free weekend, Reagan Evans (PHB), Emmanuel Nyamupingidza (PHB), Daniella Phiri (PHG) and Lara Weller (PHG) travelled to Roodeplaat Dam in South Africa to compete in the SA National Champs for rowing.
