Introducing our 2021 Head of Snell - James Edwards

James_Edwards_PrefectMy name is James Edwards and I am in Snell House. I am from Juliasdale, Nyanga and I went to Springvale House. I joined Peterhouse in D block (Form 1).

I am currently studying Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry and I hope to study engineering in the future. I love competing in various sporting activities particularly cross-country and rugby. The cultural activity I enjoy the most is bridge.

Peterhouse is unique because of the amazing and diverse friendships that I have built over the years. My friends in Snell and life in Snell has help form me into the person I am today. In my spare time I like to exercise in the gym and spend time with my friends and family.

My name is Tadiwanashe Ndiraya and I am in Paget House. I am from Harare and I went to Lendy Park School. I joined the Peterhouse community in D block (Form 1) and am currently studying Mathematics, Biology and Geography.  
 
I really enjoy playing social sports on weekends with friends and sometimes staff members, whether it be touch rugby, soccer or basketball. This not only helps with performance on the playing field but it helps you make strong friendships.  I believe in “Healthy body, healthy mind.” 
 
I really enjoy walking around the school and in Calderwood Park with my friends. I also enjoy the atmosphere of brotherhood that surrounds our school. As we live our day-to-day life here we know that there is always someone there for us: teachers, to help us in our academic work and extra lessons; Housemasters who build us and mould us into fine gentlemen and our friends who are there each step of the way. 

Meet Andy Schultz - Transport & Workshops Manager 2021

Andy joined the Peterhouse Group in January 2021 as the Transport and Workshops Manager.

Andy began his adventurous career as a commercial diver in the North Sea. During his time on the oil rigs he also qualified as a Life Support Technician and Lead Mechanic. He was later promoted from working under water to above water, when he became Installation and Commissioning Engineer, building the rigs rather than repairing them.

He is also an experienced and passionate Strength and Conditioning Coach and CrossFit Coach. At the tender young age of 3, he cut off the sleeves of his favourite shirt because he wanted to look like the Incredible Hulk. Thankfully he has grown out of this stage, but his desire to help people improve themselves through physical fitness and strength has remained unwavering. To this end Andy also owned a Commercial Gym and CrossFit Gym whilst working offshore where he dedicated his time back home to helping others discover their own inner “Incredible Hulk.”

Introducing our 2021 Head of Culture - Kevin Munzeiwa

Peterhouse Prefect Kevin MunzeiwaMy name is Kevin Munzeiwa and I am in Malvern House. I live in Harare and went to Gateway primary school from 2009-2013 before transferring to Springvale House in 2014-2015. I joined Peterhouse in D block 2016. I am currently studying Mathematics, Business Studies and Information Technology and am hoping to pursue business entrepreneurship and finance or software engineering.

While at school I am most content playing soccer with the lads at 5pm otherwise known as "Live At Five" and for the school. Since U14, all the way to the open age group, soccer has been central to my life here at Peterhouse and is the source of some great memories and friendships. Peterhouse is more than just a school but an opportunity for different cultures and individuals from diverse backgrounds to interact and learn from each other building lifelong relationships.

During this excruciating lockdown I’ve found myself indulging in finance and psychology oriented books; my top picks being: ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’, ‘Richest Man In Babylon’, ‘Indistractable’, ‘The Compound Effect’ and ‘The Power of Habit’. All while still training for soccer and balancing time with family.
