The tragic news of the death of Graham has cast a shadow over all the brighter news this week. Graham was fndly remembered by staff and family friends here at Arusha Campus. May he rest in peace.
Our leaders are scattered far and wide as I write this newsletter. Director Anna has travelled to Armenia in the company of our Board Chairperson, Tine Hemelings. Anna and Tine are our standard bearers at the UWC International Board Meeting where they will present our case with a view to gain Preliminary Approval to become a UWC. Fingers crossed and best of luck to the ladies in their quest on Sunday. We are all rooting for you.
Darren is swimming his way around Emapakai Crater, I imagine, as he accompanies our OP students on their Level Four trip. Look out for some spectacular photos in next week’s newsletter. We hope that the rain eases for the troops as this hike takes place in breathtaking landscapes. Pictured above are the OP’ers as they set out from a very soggy Arusha Campus on Thursday afternoon.
As for me, I am writing this from Landour in the foothills of the Himalayas where I am Chairing a CIS Accreditation visit to a boarding school near the Tibetan border. I am secretly getting some tips about boarding schools, now that the foundations for the Arusha Boarding house are being poured (see pictures below).
Finally, please come along to our Hallowe’en event next week which is organised by our new PTA. Look for the details in the poster below.
Have a great weekend
