Orphanage receives a makeover

Orphanage receives a makeover

A much needed re-decoration project has now been completed on the orphanage. Originally we though that a coat of pain would be good but closer inspection revealed that repair work was needed around the windows – not least the mesh that keeps the flies out.

Thanks to generous donations for this project the orphanage now looks and is a very pleasant place to live.

End of Term Celebrations

End of Term Celebrations

November saw our oldest students take the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education.  The whole school was on lockdown for a week – with an armed guard to maintain security of the exam papers. Now the candidates anxiously await their results – which should come at the end of this month.

 

At the other end of the Primary school, Nursery children graduate into the main school.  Always a colourful occasion with party food and dressing up. 

Now the Summer holidays have begun for the children but the teachers stay in school to prepare for the next academic year – starting right at the start of January.    First, though, a team day on the beach.

Broadwater School’s Dancethon Raises £2000

An day of dancing by every class at Broadwater Church of England Primary School raised a massive £2000 for classroom equipment at Unity School.   First of all we bought 5 metal cabinets for keeping the equipment safe.  Pictures: Mr Joshua inspects his new cabinet. (Mr Joshua is over 6ft tall!).    Atlases and Geometry sets for blackboards were at the top of teachers’ lists or requirements.
