Janey’s School of Driving!

Friday, November 28th, 2008
Our Water Truck is on the road and “Street Legal” but before anyone is allowed on the streets they must pass through “Janey’s School of Driving” We had a lot of fun, reversing between cones into a pretend garage. The funniest thing was when Jane put a piece of cardboard on the floor, drew a red line across it and said reverse and stop the back of the truck over the red line! Mbaraku and Austin just laughed and said “It’s impossible!” Janey promptly jumped into the cab and showed them how it’s done! At the end of the session all passed and we still had 3 cones in tact!
So on Monday we will make our first water delivery, watch this space for more pictures. Thanks again for all those who helped us to buy the water truck. Xx Glyn & Janey

Parent’s Day

Saturday, November 22nd, 2008
We have come to the end of another school year, the children were really happy to sing, dance, recite poems and perform drama’s in front of their parents.
Once again the competition was tough for the top student overall for the year, this year the award once again goes to a different student, David Mwenda Ikunga of Std 3, well done David. I think he will have to work hard if he wants to maintain his position as he joins upper primary in January.
We are continuing with our building project and hope to have the High School classrooms completely finished by the end of the year.
Now the school year has finished we are about to launch our Christmas Campaign “Give a Smile for Christmas” in preparation for next year. Full details will be posted on the blog in the 1st week of December but if you would like more information before then just drop me an email. Thanks again for helping to make 2008 a successful year.

Cut & Paste!

Friday, November 14th, 2008
So we have had another great week, Primary Students have completed their National Exams and we are cutting tiles for our third High School Classroom.
K.C.P.E results will be released at the end of December, we are hoping that most of our students will qualify for a place in Tumaini High, next week is the last week of term for the rest of our students who are looking forward to performing songs and dances in front of parents and teachers. and hopefully receiving a prize for most improved or cleanest student!
We will start plastering our final High School Classroom on Monday so that we have all 4 ready for the start of the new school year in January. We hope you have a great weekend. Xx Glyn & Janey

Oh heck! What next?

Monday, November 10th, 2008
So today is the day! Form 4 have finished their exams, there are mixed emotions around the place, a lot of relief mixed with fear of the unknown. The world awaits! The results will be out at the end of February and those fortunate enough to be offered a place at University will be informed by September, so it’s a long wait.
Thanks to all you who have supported us to this momentous day, some of our students have been with us through thick and thin, through different schools for the last 8 years. It’s been a journey well worth taking. Thank you all. Xx Glyn & Janey
