1999 Peterhouse Girls Speech Day

Headmaster's Report
Before we move into the new millennium, we need to reflect on this year - focus on its highlights and use it as a standard for greater excellence in the future.
No matter how much I try to play down the new millennium in my mind, I grant its significance in terms of time is great. I have tried to play it down because I think I am frightened by the technological changes it has in store for us. I'm conservative in my philosophy on education - I acknowledge the role of Information Technology. I just hope that core values of this millennium are not forgotten, values such as commitment, compassion, discipline, endurance, faith, freedom, friendship, honesty, humility, integrity, obedience, patience, perseverance and trust.

1999 Peterhouse Boys Speech Day

Mr Chairman, Mr Fieldsend, Governor, Governors, Regional Director, ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome to the last Speech day of the old millennium. What has Peterhouse achieved over the last 45 years and how will it fare in the next millennium? Peterhouse has had its ups and downs. During the last few years before independence the numbers dropped to such an extent that the closure of the school must have been discussed. But it kept going despite all the problems that were faced. No one will know more about this time than Mr Bruce Fieldsend, who was Rector of Peterhouse from 1968 until 1983. It is a great pleasure to welcome you as our guest of honour today.

1999 Cricket Report

Taken from the Captain Hilton Henderson's, speech at the Sports Dinner 1999

Cricket, explained simply, consists of two sides - one out in the field and one in. Each man that is in the side that's in goes out. When they are all out, the side that is out, comes in, and the side that's been in goes out, and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out. When both sides have been in and out including the not outs, that's the end of the game.

1999 A Snapshop of Peterhouse Boys

Perhaps you already know Peterhouse, or perhaps you knew it in the past and your information may be out of date. It may be that you have never even seen the school. But you are making a critical decision in the life of your son - the school where he will spend his formative years, from pre-adolescence to adulthood.

Prospective parents are encouraged to come and see the school for themselves, and if at all possible to bring their son along as well. If you put your son's name down in good time then you will automatically receive an invitation to an "Open Day" in the year before he is due to come.

1998 Tinokura

Fun and Games at Peterhouse Girls

The ozone layer above Tinokura took a serious hammering last year - from the moment in the first week when news leaked out that we would be visiting the Girls' School on Sunday for some Fun and Games.

The School Shop soon exhausted its term's supply of acceptably exotic deodorants and when the great day came the sun almost managed to burn its way through the depressingly heavy cloud layer- thanks to the ozone hole overhead. Despite the greyness, hours had been spent on getting baseball caps set at just the right back-to-front angle, and the trendiest of summer gear (giving just enough hint of 13-year-old biceps) had been mulled over, selected, borrowed, loaned or stolen for the occasion.
