We returned home from our holiday on 16th March. We had a lovely time in the Kenyan sunshine at the wonderful Swahili Beach Resort on Diani Beach. We were so pleased to see the progress made in building the new school. A start has been made in building the roof and so we were able to see what the building will look like when it is finished. James has done an amazing job of managing the project and we are so grateful to him for searching out the best prices for all the materials used. We are hoping that we can raise enough money to complete the building before the end of this year. After the roof is finished the walls will need to be plastered both inside and outside and the windows. doors and floors will have to be fitted. We also need a bore hole for water and a toilet block. So there is still plenty more to be done and we estimate that it will cost about £5,000 to achieve this.

- Dear Donors and sponsors,Good morning and how are you in the other side of the world!Pupils, parents , teachers and I are fine and doing well. We have been given a longer holiday due to the national census and statistics exercise taking place today till next week.The other thing to inform you is that we are going to have our pupils of age 8-10 in grade three being assessed by the government nationwide from 16-20 September. Some schools were denied the opportunity to have this assessment in their learning centres but for us we were lucky and so two small schools will have to bring their pupils to our learning centre for this exercise.It was alot of work from July with the governments officials to organize activities for school to market cleanup and trainings all through. Luckily we are done and God willing the officers will join us on 16-20 September.I want to thank you once more for being a supportive team from United Kingdom and Germany, making so many things a success in this learning institution and wish to sacrifice my time , energy and the little resources we have to meet our goal. There are many changes too brought by the government that are keeping all teachers on toes but I am also concerned and embracing the changes in pupils new curriculum so as to meet the government requirements.I am so happy for coming together with a common idea of development in the school to make the school be of the required standards. Am praying that God Almighty to bless you , give you all strength and good health.Thanks alot and have a nice weekend.
