Peterhouse Music Food & Wine Festival 2022

After a two year break, our Peterhouse Music, Food and Wine Festival sprung into life on Saturday 10th September.

Held on the Springvale House field, opposite Gosho Park, the Peebles Pavilion transformed into a stunning concert venue with a carefully curated array of music. Kicking off the afternoon we welcomed Deon with his country set, followed by FaB Ovation with some golden oldies. The Basics were up next with some good old folk music and Sunn Tee with a selection of great Jazz. The Tribe took over for our sundowner set before DJ JonSolo took over for some EDM and House to get everyone up and dancing.

Peterhouse Equestrian Centre Paper Chase 2022

How many schools are able to set up their very own Interhouse Paper Chase on horseback?

Recently, the Peterhouse Equestrian Centre held just an event on the grounds, and along a similar route to the equine cross-country course, which borders Gosho Park.

Teams of pupils, of differing age groups and abilities, were grouped together and tasked with navigating the course, while stopping to read questions pinned to trees and jotting down their ‘true or false’ answers. In-between each question, a little jump would need to be completed by a member of the group, experienced in jumping that height.

Then & Now - The Peterhouse Boys Tuckshop

The Peterhouse Boys tuckshop is probably one of the most popular places on campus at break time and after lunch. Boys line up to purchase delectable treats, healthy snacks, chocolates, slushies and giant cookies.

Peterhouse runs a cashless system, whereby each boy is allocated a CABS Text-a-Cash card that can be topped up by parents and used to swipe for goodies.

Back in the days Mrs Elizabeth Megahay was a legend for running the tuck-shop (pictured here in 1984) – today we have Mrs Kelly Moore, who is also our Tinokura (D Block) Matron.

Peterhouse Blood Donation 2022

It’s been quite a while since our Peterhouse pupils have been able to donate blood to the National Blood Transfusion Service of Zimbabwe (NBTZ).

Based in the Sanatoriums at each school, there were queues of senior pupils outside before the nurses were even able to set up.  Screening was done and our anxious volunteers waited patiently to be able to give the gift of blood.

Thank you, to each and every pupil, who made a donation – this will go a long way to helping those in critical need.

Did You Know That We Work With Introwise?

#didyouknow - that we are delighted to be working with Introwise and their team to ensure our pupils are being fed a healthy balanced diet.

With three hot meals a day, salads, deserts, sambo’s, cocoa breaks and the odd extra treat thrown in here and there, our pupils are well fed.

Concerned about food allergies or intolerances? A number of our pupils are on special diets for medical or religious reasons and our kitchens ensure they receive what they need.


Kutandara Marimba Group Visits Peterhouse 2022

This term the Peterhouse Music Department was delighted to welcome Kutandara, a USA based marimba group in conjunction with WINAD Trust music school.

The day started in the morning with the group giving a concert and marimba workshops at Springvale House.

Later in the afternoon, our high school marimba bands also had an opportunity to work with this group as a music exchange.

In the evening, we were given a spectacular marimba concert in the Peterhouse Girls Music Centre.

Many thanks to Kutandara for managing to visit Peterhouse during their short stay in Zimbabwe.

Oliver ‘with a Zim’ Twist – 'Please, sir, I want some more. '

Oliver with a Zim Twist was a resounding success and well received by our audiences.

Our incredible cast and crew worked slavishly for a solid three months as they waded through the demands of line memorisation, scene changes, lighting, characterisation, props, costumes and makeup.

They developed into an amazing team that worked together seamlessly and professionally.

Peterhouse Musician of the Year 2022

‘Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common’. Sarah Dessen

After a twenty-year absence, internationally benchmarked Music Examinations have returned to Peterhouse and Zimbabwe. This term we were fortunate to host Paul Coleman, a London College of Music examiner, for three days whilst he evaluated a good number of our music pupils. While the results are still to be published, he spoke very favourably of the pupils he examined. Having internationally recognized music examinations back in Zimbabwe will do much for the development of music in the school.
