Peterhouse Boys

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.

School Play 2018 – ‘It Runs in the Family’ by Ray Cooney

Well done to all pupils and staff involved in this year’s hilarious school play. There was much entertainment as the play ran for three nights at the Fieldsend Hall.

Directed and produced by: J.W. Redfern
Greatly assisted by: T.M. Nzanga

Synopsis:
Set in a hospital, It Runs in the Family contains the usual assortment of farcical nuts running in and out of doors mistaking everybody for someone else, as Dr. Mortimore tries to fend off a paternity suit, an ex-wife, a punkish daughter and various other lunatics so that he may, at last, deliver the Ponsonby Lecture in an international conference.

Gosho Park Game Capture - September 2018

We recently had a successful game capture in the park and were able to sell 33 impala to other small game parks for restocking.

The Learner Guide pupils helped with the capture which was a good experience for them. A young male eland was also captured and moved across to Calderwood Park – from dart to release this operation only took 35 minutes – very efficient!

We already have some female eland in Calderwood Park so should have the start of a good breeding herd. If anyone knows where there are female waterbuck for sale, please contact us as we need some in Gosho Park.
