Many of us love nature and wildlife but one of our students, Nicole Booth, cares so much that she is spreading the word on YouTube.

Lost in Africa: Amboseli
We hope you are as impressed and proud as we are.
Well done, Nicole - keep it up!
The first month back at school has been very busy and there have been all manner of activities undertaken in the Secondary school.
The IB1 students have exceeded all expectations and thrown themselves into the programmes with vigour; many scaling Mount Longonot as part of their Service Learning/and CAS programmes.
Sport has been forging ahead and the school field is abuzz, throughout the week, with squads training and fixtures being played. The rounders teams are bringing in some great results and a resurgence of open level cricket is also underway.
There are also a number of academic trips this half of term and students will be visiting art galleries as well as attending the annual Story moja literature festival.
Of course the parent body has been as involved as ever and while the FROGS are settled into their 'Lilypad' and welcoming new members, the termly parents' forum has already occurred and was very fruitful.
A productive beginning to the year, that we hope will continue.
We have expanded our Language Club provision this year with the inclusion of Mother Tongue French, and Mandarin. All our extra curricular languages are now in a booklet to inform you of the options we have and encourage you to partake. Please follow the link to access our Language Clubs Booklet.

The BGE Lions roared into the final of the tournament, playing some excellent rugby and mauling the opposition into submission. However, in a fiercely fought final, we had to settle for 2nd place as the match proved to be one game too far.
The group stages started well as we brushed Braeside away winning 15-0. The second game was a titanic battle versus the old foe, BGR. We demonstrated every ounce of character, skill and determination to fight back from a try down to win the game 10-5. This was undoubtedly our best performance all year. The final group game was another comfortable win, 20-5 versus Nairobi Academy.
The semi-final was a much tighter affair than expected but a 15-10 win was enough to see the boys into the final. Unfortunately, the Lions were unable to recreate the intensity required to beat BGR for a second time and had to settle for the Runners’ up medals.
I am so proud of the boys’ achievements, not only today but all term. They have made so much progression and thoroughly deserved the reward of a medal.
Congratulations to all of the players involved.
The U9 Netball team ended their season well at the BGE tournament. The girls played consistently in the group stage, winning 5-1 and 6-2 against Braeburn Imani and Premier respectively. However a 4-1 loss to Braeburn Gitanga meant that we finished second in the pool but still advanced to the semi-finals. In the semi, we met Nairobi Academy in what was a very tough match. The girls played brilliantly and produced some of our best netball of the term. This was however, not quite enough as we gallantly went down 5-8.
The girls have worked very hard all season and have greatly improved both tactically and skilfully. The most valuable player from our team was Margaret Manning, who showcased a strong performance throughout the day. However, all of the girls' passion, commitment and drive should be commended.
