Congratulations to the cast and crew of the October Play who performed "A Murder is Announced" last week and took the audience back to a small village in the 50s! It is always very impressive to see how a group works together in such a friendly and supportive way in order to achieve the same goal. An African proverb rightly states that, "if you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together!". We are looking forward to seeing the 2018 Fall Play!

Asked about his life since... Read More

Last Saturday, as part of the Service as Action programme, students in grades 9 & 10 participated in a Frist Aid training course at the school. The course was an intensive 8 hour training with a mixture of theoretical and practical components. One of the requirements for the students to take part in this course was that they participate in 3 Service Activities at school as First Aiders. So you will probably see them soon wearing their “First Aider” vest and ready to help!
