The coveted roles of head by and head girl are always hotly contested and this year was no exception. the roles are often assumed by individuals who manage to balance finely, influence, leadership, empathy and authority. Margaret Ndugu and Raiyan Ganatra, made such impressions on their campaign trails and in subsequent grilling by the SMT that they are duly appointed to the roles.
With their peers they have already been making a positive impression in the school and have great plans to build on the good work of their predecessors in the coming academic year. I look forward to working with them and all the prefects.
I am very pleased to announce that, following a long and difficult process, two of our year 8 students have been awarded scholarships as they move into year 9 in August.
Shiro Muiruri and Khaleel Lalji demonstrated not only academic excellence, but also dedication, skill and humility in areas of excellence; drama for Khaleel Lalji and sports for Shiro Muiruri. Congratulations to both Khaleel and Shiro, but also to all the candidates who applied for the scholarships and performed so well as they undertook, interviews and tasks in such a fashion as to make the final decision such a challenge.
Scholarships for entry onto the IB courses will be based, in part on the results of the applicants' IGCSE results and will therefore be announced at a later date.
You are invited to come and see our High School students perform the production of Wakanda Has fallen this coming Friday / Saturday.
Last week our IB students delivered a new library and books to a local school in Narok County. This huge achievement forms part of their IB course and is result of much planning, fundraising and logistics to get this completed and resourced Library to a much needed cause. We are very proud of these students that they understand the impact of their service commitment to our wider community and fellow citizens, well done.
