Learner Guides Imire Field Trip 2019

Our Fifth Form Learner Guides pupils went to Imire Game Park over the weekend – this was their first field trip so they had plenty to learn. Being close up to elephants and rhinos gave an opportunity for close observation both of physical features and of animal behaviour. Lessons and practical’s included tracking, details of approaches to game, shot placement, insect collections and bird identification.

The night drive always adds interest – my last visit to Imire we saw an aardvaak but he was nowhere to be found this time.

We were invited to observe a tracker dog at work following tracks left by a ‘poacher’ – an amazing animal which will be a great benefit to Imire once it is fully trained.

Interact Induction Speech by Zivai Sinemani (Head of School) 2019

“It is our job to be good Rotarians, and one who lives up to the principles will be a good neighbour, a kind friend, a loving spouse , a companionable parent, and an asset to the community in which he or she lives” – Paul Harris, Founder of the Rotary Club.

A pleasant Afternoon to the Rector and Mrs Blackett; Rotarians, Mr and Mrs Griggs; The Head of Extracurricular Activities, Mrs. Shoesmith.

The word Interact stands for international action. The international objectives are to develop leadership skills and personal integrity, to demonstrate helpfulness and respect for others, to understand the value of individual responsibility and hard work and to advance international understanding and goodwill. The Rotary Club being the Mother of Interact has similar principles. For more than 110 years, Rotary members have been addressing challenges around the world. It started with the vision of one man — Paul Harris. The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary Club of Chicago on 23 February 1905, so professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas, form meaningful, lifelong friendships, and give back to their communities. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of its members. Since then the organization has expanded, reaching just over 100 nations. Over the years the club has achieved remarkable things including fighting against polio in 1979 with a project to vaccinate 6 million children in the Philippines. Today, polio remains endemic in only three countries — down from 125 in 1988. This just goes to show how privileged we are to be a part of something bigger than ourselves that has helped the lives of millions of people across the globe.

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.

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.
