ATS Junior Debate Tournament C and D Block
Although they came last out of 16 teams, the girls must be congratulated for taking part in their first tournament. From this they learnt a lot and appreciate that there is still more to learn. They are grateful for the exposure and being given the opportunity to participate.
The eight 2019 Interact Board members completed the Shoebox Challenge of 2018. Enough stationery was donated by pupils in all three schools to fill 160 shoeboxes. These shoeboxes were given to pupils of St Francis, and other pupils in schools in Rusape and Harare. There were smiles of appreciation on the faces of the St Francis children as they received their boxes from pupils at Springvale, PHG and PHB this week.
The Interact Club thanks all pupils of the Peterhouse Group for their generous donations.
Kukura Neshungu 2018 Report
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honourable, to be compassionate and to make a difference.
There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up. Kukura Neshungu club had a couple of fundraising functions earlier this year and raised in excess of $2,600. From these proceeds, the club donated $2,000 towards the much needed repair of the gutters at Kukura Neshungu home in Dombotombo Township in Marondera.
The club also successfully sourced 35 tracksuits for the staff as well as the pupils of Kukura Neshungu. The club members were inspired by the words of mother Theresa to help the physically and mentally challenged pupils of Kukura Neshungu when she wrote: Love is not patronising, and charity isn’t about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same – with charity you give love, so don’t just give money and material things but reach out your hand instead.
The girls were excited to see and experience the national heritage monument at Tsindi Ruins. A lot of time was spent rock-climbing, sight-seeing and enjoying the coolness of the caves on a very hot day. Interestingly, upon seeing the ruins, they were able to identify the dry masonry skill used which is very similar to Great Zimbabwe – in the middle of the bush just a stone’s throw away from Peterhouse.
