Leavers Service 2017

We bid farewell to our Petreans of 2017 on Tuesday 14th November during a fitting and memorable Leavers Service in the Peterhouse Chapel.

An amusing and humorous, yet meaningful and thoughtful, address was given by Mr Lenard Mudiwa, who is himself also leaving at the end of this year, to take up Headship of Lendy Park School.

It is always an emotional time for staff and parents as we watch them sing their last war-cries with the school body.

We wish these young men all the best in the future and do hope they stay in touch via the Petrean Society.

Duke of Edinburgh International Award Training 2017

This week we hosted three trainers from the Duke of Edinburgh Award at Peterhouse to conduct training on the Award for staff from various ATS schools. Chisipite Senior School, St Johns College, Falcon College, St Andrews International School from Malawi and Peterhouse all sent delegates for training on various aspects of running the Award in Zimbabwe.

The training was top quality and great, great fun. We really got to know one another well and had a good time working together.

We held a special dinner on one of the evenings, where all the pupils at Peterhouse who are doing their Silver and Gold Awards could meet with the trainers and hear from two Gold Awarders who have just achieved this incredible level during their time at Peterhouse.

The new Megahey Centre at Peterhouse 2017

Speech Day at Peterhouse this term was no ordinary occasion – it marked the opening of the school’s new Learning Resource Centre – The Megahey Centre.

Named after the 3rd Rector of Peterhouse, the late Alan Megahey, and built at a cost of $1.5million, donated to the school by an anonymous benefactor based in the UK, the new LRC is a vibrant, interactive complex with both formal seating for pupils of all ages to access the internet and do online research, as well as more comfortable and relaxed seating areas for them to enjoy reading and studying.

Giraffe Translocation to Gosho Park 2017

The planning and paperwork has taken three years but at last we have a new male giraffe in Gosho Park. These beautiful animals are so graceful and yet can be very comical when they turn and stare at people - children are fascinated by them and they are a wonderful topic for a lesson.

The capture from Imire Game Park went very smoothly and he was soon on his way in a huge lorry (not with his head sticking out the top! - He was safely inside). We had to use the top service gate because our Peterhouse Girls trees meet over the road and the vehicle was too tall. Once in the park, a ramp was put down for him to walk out into his new home - he galloped off a few meters and then turned and starred around him wondering…. Where am I?

Nursery School Dairy Visit 2017

Our Peterhouse Nursery School children were full of excitement as they got to experience a school trip to the local dairy.

The children lined up and asked the bus driver if they were climbing on to the ‘right bus’ to the dairy – once confirmed, they each handed in their ‘bus pass’ which had a picture of a cow on the front – because that’s what you use to travel to the dairy!

It was a short drive down the road and the children were so excited to see the cows as we approach the dairy.

Peterhouse Nursery School Bubble Play 2017

Bubbles are a great thing to use when playing with kids and it is usually done once a week. Not only is bubble play an easy way to have fun but it’s a way to work on a number of developmental skills.

Bubble play can develop fine motor skills as the children can pop the bubbles in a number of different ways such as poke them with an index finger, squeezing them with the whole hand or using two hands to clap the bubbles. Bubble play also helps to develop visual tracking skills and good hand eye coordination.

In group play children can take turns at keeping personal space between their bodies so they don’t bump into or knock each other over as well as extreme movements of reaching up as high as possible, jumping, squatting and running.

Chimanimani Horizons Expedition 2017

The B Block travelled to Chimanimani as is tradition at this time of year. This year 28 boys volunteered for the now sought after Horizon’s Expedition.

The total length of this year’s trip was a staggering 92.6km, and took the pupils to some of Chimanimani most famous land marks. Very few people ever go to these areas so most of these are landmarks only known to a select group of Peterhouse Pupils who undertake this amazing trip.

The journey started at National Parks Base Camp and went up Banana Grove to the Saddle. Day two was the walk down Bald Ridge then up Hacksaw Ridge onto Gossamer Ridge to Eastern Lakes. Day three was spent cloofing in Devil’s Leap George. Day 4 we circumnavigated the Gates of Hell, climbed Tuckers Ridge, viewed Tuckers Falls (150m) and then ascended the 3 waterfalls in Valley of the Wizards. Day 5 was a trip to North Eastern Falls and then onto Gemini Peaks. Day 5, the longest day at 22km, involved climbing North Eastern Ridge, Valley of the Apostles, Skeleton Pass, Bundi Plain and onto Paradise Pool and the famous Peterhouse Jumping Rock. The last day is just a short 8km hike down Hadange Pass back to Outward Bound.
