Our new baby class (4 year olds) started a couple of weeks ago. Here they all are in front of their classroom. The 25 children are very excited to be going to school, especially as many of their friends do not go to school. We had about 100 applicants for 25 places, so sorry to the ones we could not accommodate
The new office and classroom are now finished and ready for the 25 new children starting in January. We were using a classroom as an office so the new office releases a classroom. We now have 7 classrooms, enough for another 2 years. Thanks to everyone whose donations helped us build these.
Our latest project to enhance the education at the school in Kenya. On the last trip to Kenya we took 1 tablet computer full of educational maths and literacy software. The kids just loved it and learnt maths so fast. Now we are fundraising to buy another 14 tablets. Good 7″ tablets are now as little as £69 plus a further few pounds for the software – say £80 all in.
The school is using the last of the rains to plant some trees and shrubs around the school. Everyone is involved – children, teachers, cleaners and even the cook. In the next few weeks, the rains will stop and we will use the water from the bore-hole to keep the shrubs growing. Soon the school will be a green patch in a dry brown area.
