Grade 7 Rifa Trip 2017

We had a busy week at RIFA, in Chirundu, for the Grade Sevens.

Activities included: canoeing, target practice, first aid, GPS and mapping, fishing, trees, bird spotting, vulture watch, impala dissection, fire making, bush cricket and team activities.

Our school's aim of instilling the need for conserving our wonderful country's natural resources was at the base of all we did. Fun was had by all.

Thanks to Kerry Morgan Orphanides for the photos!

Conservation Update August 2017

Gosho Park
The roof at Hikers is being replaced and the new roof will cover a much bigger area. We are also going ahead with the final section of the electric fence. Two blesbok males were introduced into the park and we are expecting an adult male giraffe fairly soon.

It is nearly holidays and the Peterhouse Girls office is not open all the time for bookings. Please think ahead and make accommodation bookings before the end of term - or you will have to take pot luck! Next term already has a lot of school bookings so please check beforehand if you want to use the park. While staff have the privilege of free entry, please ensure that all guests pay entry fees and everyone is expected to pay for camping.

Nursery School Day of the Fairy Tale 2017

In recognition of ‘The Day of the Fairy Tale’ children at the Peterhouse Nursery School were encouraged to come dressed as their favourite fairy tale character for the day.

The day was spent discussing the various fairy tales and admiring each other’s costumes (or helping Tin Man with his outfit). The Peterhouse D Block (Form 1) boys came to read fairy tales to small groups of children as part of their English lesson, while acting out the stories as best they could. The Peterhouse C Block (Form 2) boys also visited the nursery school to play fairy tale inspired games.
