Condolences – Mrs Nicky Hammond

Dear Peterhouse Community,

CONDOLENCES – MRS NICKY HAMMOND

It was with real sadness and sorrow that the Peterhouse community received the news of Mrs Nicky Hammond’s tragic passing in Harare on Sunday 9 May 2021.

Nicky, alongside her husband Simon, who is Chairman of the Peterhouse Board of Governors, was a long-time champion of Peterhouse, providing amazing support to the school in so many ways. Not only has Peterhouse lost an incredible friend, but so too, as the Eisteddfod Vocal and Instrumental Director, we as a school recognise that both the NIAA and Zimbabwe lose a real advocate and supporter of the Arts. Her passion for the school and the Arts in Zimbabwe was exemplified by the esteem and respect she gained in serving both of these communities.

D Block (Form 1) Basecamp 2021

Normally held after the first two and a half weeks of the year, the Basecamp ran from 24 to 27 March this year, which was only three days into the boys' Peterhouse journey! Nonetheless, there was a very positive vibe during the camp and the boys enjoyed a range of teambuilding and challenging activities … well, maybe they didn't all enjoyall the activities while doing them, but they certainly all have tales to tell about how heavy a backpack feels after about 25km of walking through some amazing Marondera countryside, and the potential hazards involving leeches when building a raft. There is a great sense of achievement after completing what is a challenging three days, especially for the boys who are not used to a rigorous outdoor lifestyle.

Introducing our 2021 Tinokura Prefect - James Weller

My name is James Weller and I am in Snell House. I currently live in Harare and I went to St John's Prep (Grades 1-4) and Whitestone (Grades 5-7).

I joined Peterhouse in D block in 2016 and I am now studying Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry for my A-Levels. I am planning on continuing to university to study either mechanical and marine engineering or actuarial science.

I am actively involved in rowing, cross-country and athletics where I enjoy representing Peterhouse at first team level but I also enjoy being a part of the mountain biking and fly-fishing clubs. Having been on four tours to represent both Peterhouse and Zimbabwe for rowing and mountain biking, as well as being captain of rowing, I have a fairly hectic schedule but Peterhouse has been fantastic in keeping me on top of everything that I need to be doing, whilst having great staff and equipment within arm’s reach; literally!

Zimbabwe Juniors vs South Africa Juniors Polocrosse Development Tour

Bulawayo 2021

Well done to Keegan Mannix and fellow Zimbabwe representatives who played exceptionally well at the tournament and showed us they have what it takes. The team travelled to Bulawayo a week before the test matches for a coaching clinic, giving them time to play as a team, trust in each other and work with different horses. A big thanks must go out to the Bulawayo parents and Polox community who organised the event and hosted them team and horses for two weeks.

Thanks to Mr Bailey who recorded the weights of fish caught – the three biggest fish went towards the final weights. All fish were successfully released back into the dam.
