The new school year began on January 2nd. Our school now has a total of 240 pupils. 30 children are registered into our newly formed day care class of 3 to 4-year old children will be beginning school at the end of February when the new classroom is completed. 30 children are attending kindergarten and another 30 children are attending preschool. 150 pupils are in grades 1 through 5. Each class is comprised of 15 boys and 15 girls so that there is a total of 120 boy and 120 girls registered at the Live and Learn in Kenya Elementary School. The day was especially exciting for the 30 children, who joined our project in November 2017. It was their first day at our kindergarten. The photo shows them proudly wearing their new school uniforms that they received that day.
They weren’t the only ones excited about their first day of school. Our former principal, Linda Wanyonyi, left Nakuru to follow her husband to another part of Kenya. Mustafa Osundwa was greeted as the new principal of the school. The young and dynamic teacher has teaching experience in both public and private schools. He served as the assistant pricipal of Eldoret Education Centre. One of his main objectives is to work in a challenging environment with a team of inovated teachers and pupils.
