Huge thanks to all who participated and were involved in making the day a success.

It was fantastic to see our very own staff / Petreans team take to the water this year.

Nyanga Fly Fishing Weekend 2018

Thirteen boys spent this weekend in Nyanga National Park hoping to catch trout. Mr Brown from Fly Fishing Zimbabwe was their coach teaching them how to set up their rods, choose flies and cast.

We fished Rhodes dam – some big fish hooked but not landed by the boys although our coach caught two beauties – 1.4 kgs and 1.9 kgs.

We spent time at Mare dam which has easier fishing with jetties to fish from. Boys had a picnic lunch at the Nyangombe swimming pool where we also managed to catch a trout and saw a big eel.

Rowing South African Schools Championships 2018

A team of 20 Peterhouse pupils, 9 boys and 11 girls, travelled to Roodeplaat Dam, Pretoria, South Africa to compete at the South African Schools Rowing Championships.

The Peterhouse Boat Club would like to thank all those involved in making the tour a success, in particular Giles and Deborah Raynor, Laura Evans and Louvina Eggersglusz.

Learner Guides Tree Identification Course 2018

Our pupils were fortunate to have the Southern African expert on trees visit to do a tree identification course with them in Gosho Park.

Meg Coates Palgrave has updated the book on trees of Southern Africa and she has written keys which use mainly leaf characteristics to identify trees.

Botanical terms were explained and everyone learned how to use the key – not always as easy as it sounds so we had to practice - we were told the GOLDEN RULE IS TO LOOK WITH YOUR EYES!

Service Club Visits February 2018

Interact Club’s Visit to Ida Wekwako (Faith Tsuroh)

The Interact Club recently visited Ida Wekwako, a retirement home in Marondera. The conversations we had with the older citizens were deeper than ever. The old men and women of Ida Wekwako reminded us of the right things to do and stories of their own childhoods which were so different to ours.

While some people fear visiting the elderly, a visit like this one reminded us of what you can learn from a person who has gone through the many stages of life. Where else, other than an old age home, will you get to meet a man who was born on the 7th of a month he cannot remember in 1918 or a man, who can tell you all about his wife and three children, at the age of 99.
