Keegan Mannix Represents Zimbabwe PoloX 2021

Zimbabwe Juniors vs South Africa Juniors Polocrosse Development Tour

Bulawayo 2021

Well done to Keegan Mannix and fellow Zimbabwe representatives who played exceptionally well at the tournament and showed us they have what it takes. The team travelled to Bulawayo a week before the test matches for a coaching clinic, giving them time to play as a team, trust in each other and work with different horses. A big thanks must go out to the Bulawayo parents and Polox community who organised the event and hosted them team and horses for two weeks.

Introducing our 2021 Tinokura Prefect - Reuben de Kock

Peterhouse_Prefect_Reuben_de_Kock_2021My name is Reuben de Kock and I am in Founders House. I am originally from Masvingo but moved to Marondera to join Springvale House in 2012, before joining Peterhouse in D block (Form 1)
I am currently studying Mathematics, Physics and Design Technology.

At Peterhouse I mainly enjoy outdoor activities such as mountain biking, hiking and fishing in the school dams. My interests have been varied from filming sport on Saturdays, to painting Zimbawean scenery in acrylics and master-minding lighting and backdrop changes in the school’s drama productions. The outdoor expeditions at Peterhouse have shaped me and changed my perspective on life as a whole because I have been forced out of my comfort zone and have been physically and mentally challenged.

Well done to all boys who participated – your strength and determination was evident, especially during that long uphill climb back towards the Athletics fields.

Well done to Snell House for winning this year’s competition.
