A group of pupils and staff from Stonyhurst College, Lancashire leave for Zimbabwe this week, to visit their Jesuit sister school, St Peter’s, Kubatana. Packed in their suitcases will be gifts of various things which are in short supply in Zimbabwe, such as first-aid materials, art equipment, and footballs.

“We are really looking forward to seeing everyone at St Peter’s, especially as we couldn’t go last year because of the risk of cholera and other factors,” said Paul Warrilow, Head of Religious Education at the College, who has been visiting Zimbabwe for a number of years. Two sixth-formers, Sophie Le Breton and Natalie Crouch, both from Hurst Green, will be working with some of St Peter’s 1,200 pupils, who are aged between 3 and 18.

Stonyhurst College has a long-standing partnership with St Peter’s, called ‘Chirwirangwe’ or ‘Let us unite.’ Each year-group has linked up with a child in Zimbabwe, and is raising money to pay for that child’s education, as well as exchanging letters and photographs to show solidarity and friendship.



Stonyhurst is a 400 year old co-educational day and boarding School for 3 – 18 year olds.
