Peterhouse Boys

B Block Chimanimani Expedition with Outward Bound Zimbabwe 2018

‘A ship in harbour is safe but that is not what ships are built for’. William Shed

As educators and as parents and guardians, we can be classified as ‘craftsmen and ship builders’. We can all add our special contribution to the ‘building’ (raising) of ‘sturdy, stable, sea faring ships’ (capable and independent children). This is so that they can leave the harbor (our safe and comfortable homes) and make a useful contribution to a really challenging but exciting world out there. As the quote above states, ships are built to be out at sea, doing useful jobs, enduring calm waters as well as terrible storms. In essence, we, as parents and schools like Peterhouse and Outward Bound are here to support the ‘ship building process’, so that pupils who leave our safe harbor’s (our homes) are prepared and ready to face what comes their way.

Combined Senior Schools Concert 2018

Peterhouse last hosted the Combined Schools Concert in 2008. This year, we worked with eleven other schools to try and create a truly magical sound.

Our theme this year was ‘UBUNTU’ which is a special African colloquialism that means ‘ I am because we are’. Quite simply, it resembles togetherness. The music, chosen by conductors mainly from the Marondera schools, was distributed in May. This gave each school a chance to practice the pieces long before bringing it all together in September.

This time round we tried two new ideas just to generate something different to fit our Ubuntu theme. Firstly, we invited the legendary Dr Oliver Mtukudzi to sing with our choirs and our instrumentalists. He is such an inspirational Zimbabwean artist and the participants thoroughly enjoyed making music with him.

Basketball vs St George’s 2018

Earlier this term our boys took on an unusually strong St George’s basketball contingent that really put our boy’s skills to the test.

Many of the games were closely contested and it turned out to be a great afternoon.

No doubt this has spurred them on to push harder and sharpen their skills. Well done to the U16B’s on their victory. We can’t win every game.
