Year 6 Week 11 Newsletter

21st November 2020

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We have reached the end of yet another fun-filled week of learning!

Kiswahili Day

This week on Thursday, we celebrated our Kiswahili Day themed, ‘Naitambua Lugha Yangu’ (I recognise my language). The students took part in various activities including watching Swahili stories, designing Swahili clothes and ornaments and sampling Swahili delicacies. We all dressed up in Swahili attire on that day.

Prefects Inauguration

On Friday, 20th November 2020, the prefects were awarded their ties and badges in a short ceremony in the school theatre. They were really excited to be given the powers to execute their duties as leaders.
