The PHG 30th Anniversary High Tea "Bubbles and Broomsticks" was held on Thursday 28th September 2017 at The Flying Frog, Highlands Harare. It was a well-supported event with 90 ladies and 1 Gentleman attending.

Among the guests were a few Petreans, Parents and friends of Peterhouse, Invited special guests included Mr Stewart Mattinson and his partner Penny, Mrs Barrie Hammond, Mrs Harriet Nel, The Headmistress of Peterhouse Girls Mrs Tracy Blignaut, The Deputy Headmistress of Peterhouse girls Mrs Claire Hough.

The function commenced at 2.00pm, guests were welcomed with champagne cocktail Followed by tea, coffee and delicious eats. The pink gin and tonics and Prosecco flowed later in the afternoon.

I welcomed the assembled company and invited Tracy Blignaut to say a few words on the development of Peterhouse Girls over the past 30 years. Nomkhosi Malaba, Head Girl of PHG gave a short and very amusing anecdote of her time at PHG.

I thanked all for attending our final celebration of our 30th Anniversary and for all those amazing ladies who have helped and supported me with this year's celebrations.

The event went on till 6.30pm when the entire remaining guest departed. All in all a great success which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

The marquee made to look beautiful with flowers from Tracey Kloppers and the setup by the Peterhouse Girls Hospitality Club under the direction of Harriet Rinashe – Thank you ladies.

The fields, grounds and gardens at Peterhouse Girls are looking fantastic too, thanks to the Estates and Gardens teams.
