Polly Anderson

The Andersons (Staff 83-93) Ken was an extremely effective Chaplain, who has made a lasting impression on many Petreans. Polly played a vital part in the early years of SVH, where she was the all seeing, all doing Secretary and the friend of all. The role she performed was unique. It is difficult to explain just how pervasive her warm personality was throughout the school. Her pithy contributions to a number of Magazines explain much about the subsequent success of the school and the joy and Ken Andersonsense of humour that the founding staff brought to the task. They live in Durham, England where Ken is attached to the University as a Counsellor and Polly is secretary of Durham Cathedral Choir School. This email address is being protected from spambots.

Dorthe Andersen-Mabira (Staff 96-03) was a member of the PHG Science Department for 8 years and taught guitar, volleyball and the skills of debating. She went to Denmark for medical treatment, where she is teaching at a school and lives with her husband and two sons.

Dr Hamish Allen served as the school's medical officer from the day Peterhouse opened until he died in 1974.
