Model United Nations Club Report May 2021

Earlier this month the Peterhouse Model United Nations Club attended a Zoom conference hosted by St John's College. This was a new and unique experience for our 26 delegates and 2 chairpersons, especially seeing as, for many of them, this was their first conference.

There were of course obstacles unique to virtual meetings encountered, all serving as a learning curve for future conferences. In spite of some hiccups, a great deal of lively, heated discussion was had and there was often laughter echoing through the Megahey Centre when a particularly memorable statement was made.

Barbara Mutedzi on Conscious Leadership 2021

We were privileged to be able to host the fabulous Barbara Mutedzi recently as part of our Careers Sessions for 5th and 6th Form pupils.

She was an absolute inspiration to the pupils and had them thoroughly engaged throughout.  Many of our pupils approached us after the event, asking for more information on where they can contact Barbara and get individual coaching.

Peterhouse Rowers at RSA National Champs 2021

Two boys and five girls of the Peterhouse Boat Club travelled to South Africa to represent the Rowing Association of Zimbabwe (RAZ) at the South African National Championships. A tough weekend of racing allowed the athletes to get a taste of competition which they have sorely missed, and they did not fail to make the most of the opportunity at hand.

The first success of the weekend came from our girls’ captains, Doné Eramsus and Stacey Dunstan, who went on to win a gold medal in the Junior Women’s Double, setting the tone for the regatta as multiple crews were able to take a stand on the podium; with Regan Evans and Emmanuel Nyamupingidza taking home a bronze medal in the Junior Men’s Double, and Stacey Dunstan struck again in a strongly fought Junior Women’s Singles race to beat out Doné Erasmus and Kayla Kalweit to add a bronze medal to her tally.

Condolences – Mrs Nicky Hammond

Dear Peterhouse Community,


It was with real sadness and sorrow that the Peterhouse community received the news of Mrs Nicky Hammond’s tragic passing in Harare on Sunday 9 May 2021.

Nicky, alongside her husband Simon, who is Chairman of the Peterhouse Board of Governors, was a long-time champion of Peterhouse, providing amazing support to the school in so many ways. Not only has Peterhouse lost an incredible friend, but so too, as the Eisteddfod Vocal and Instrumental Director, we as a school recognise that both the NIAA and Zimbabwe lose a real advocate and supporter of the Arts. Her passion for the school and the Arts in Zimbabwe was exemplified by the esteem and respect she gained in serving both of these communities.

D Block (Form 1) Basecamp 2021

Normally held after the first two and a half weeks of the year, the Basecamp ran from 24 to 27 March this year, which was only three days into the boys' Peterhouse journey! Nonetheless, there was a very positive vibe during the camp and the boys enjoyed a range of teambuilding and challenging activities … well, maybe they didn't all enjoyall the activities while doing them, but they certainly all have tales to tell about how heavy a backpack feels after about 25km of walking through some amazing Marondera countryside, and the potential hazards involving leeches when building a raft. There is a great sense of achievement after completing what is a challenging three days, especially for the boys who are not used to a rigorous outdoor lifestyle.

Introducing our 2021 Tinokura Prefect - James Weller

My name is James Weller and I am in Snell House. I currently live in Harare and I went to St John's Prep (Grades 1-4) and Whitestone (Grades 5-7).

I joined Peterhouse in D block in 2016 and I am now studying Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry for my A-Levels. I am planning on continuing to university to study either mechanical and marine engineering or actuarial science.

I am actively involved in rowing, cross-country and athletics where I enjoy representing Peterhouse at first team level but I also enjoy being a part of the mountain biking and fly-fishing clubs. Having been on four tours to represent both Peterhouse and Zimbabwe for rowing and mountain biking, as well as being captain of rowing, I have a fairly hectic schedule but Peterhouse has been fantastic in keeping me on top of everything that I need to be doing, whilst having great staff and equipment within arm’s reach; literally!
