A Level Art in 2018

Each year we look forward to paging through the AS and A Level Art Portfolio submissions to Cambridge and we must say that not only are they artistically impressive, but also in the sheer amount of work that goes into each.

Our pupils spend a year exploring their subject of choice and finding way of converting images, experiences, feelings and emotions on to paper and in to sketch pads.

Many pupils use themselves as a frame of reference or rope in friends and relatives to study, often in detail.

World Scholars Cup Tournament of Champions 2018

This year Peterhouse Boys School had the privilege of sending two teams that qualified in the Global round in Melbourne in August 2018 to the United States of America. Fifty two countries participated in the Tournament that was held at Yale University in the United States of America. The team left Zimbabwe on the 14th and returned on the 24th of November. They landed to a combination of snow and sleet and extremely cold conditions. The team was honoured by the presence of the Zimbabwe consulate to the United States at the opening ceremony.

Marondera Schools Carol Concert 2018

We held our annual Marondera Schools Carol Concert earlier this week in the Peterhouse Boys’ Chapel.

It was a lovely evening filled with the voice and song of a number of the junior and senior schools in the local community.

The finale was a collaboration of song performed by all the schools as one, who somehow managed to find space at the front of the chapel.

Huge thanks to all the schools for their beautiful contributions.

There were smiles of appreciation on the faces of the St Francis children as they received their boxes from pupils at Springvale, Peterhouse Girls and Peterhouse Boys this week.

A Block Far & Wide Trip 2018

While a great many of Zimbabwe’s post IGCSE pupils head out to party, the Peterhouse pupils embark on the Far and Wide experience in the Nyanga Mountains. For some the FOMO of not being on ‘O Break’ still batters their attitude! But, for the vast majority these days, the F&W experience has become a healthy part of tradition at Peterhouse, and is one they look forward to for many reasons: building relationships has come to be the cornerstone of the trip, but many pupils learn a lot about the strength of diversity in groups, particularly how the opposite sex’s strengths usually counter their own gender’s weaknesses!

All pupils grow in self-awareness, develop resilience, responsibility and resourcefulness. Everyone leaves with a sense of pride in some aspect of their accomplishment. This year all the participants experienced the newly built skywalks: one 30m and another 90m across the Mtarazi Falls.

Humani Learner Guide Conservation Trip 2018

10 pupils had the privilege of a trip to Humani for 5 nights. Our accommodation overlooked the Turgwe river and there was a constant stream of wildlife coming to drink.

All pupils had some training of firearm safety and target practice and the Learner Guides had the experience of hunting an impala under supervision of a professional hunter.

Early morning was the best time for our bush walks and there certainly was plenty to look at with the bush being so dry including wild dog and elephant herds. The habitat has good birding opportunities and interesting plants with the palm forests and riverine vegetation.

A Block Turaco Trail 2018

Picture this - the majority of the school leavers around the country left school, shortly after their last public examination, and were now celebrating in various places and, at exactly the same time, the Peterhouse A Block were all sitting on a school bus winding their way up to the start of the beautiful Turaco Trail for a week (to complete a grueling walk of about roughly 50Km)

Scenario One (set for most school leavers)

Eat and drink whatever and whenever you want, have endless relaxing, lazy days with nothing much planned, have endless lie-ins until 10 in the morning and watch loads of TV or play some game on a gadget of some sort.

Gaerezi Rods & Reels Fishing Weekend 2018

A few of our boys had the privilege of fishing in Zimbabwe’s top trout river over the weekend. It was a coaching weekend and boys also spent time catching and identifying insects which the trout eat.

Mr. Cook then tied flies to imitate the insects and explained how they move in the water – very interesting! The river was crystal clear and the water low so it was quite easy to spot the fish – the challenge is then to get them to take the fly!

Thanks to Mr Brown for coaching boys – some had never held a rod before let alone cast the line so it’s quite an achievement to catch a fish! - we hope our group of fishermen will grow next year.
