50 years and becoming UWC East Africa
Our Alumni from around the world will meet in Moshi to celebrate 50 years of ISM. The Alumni Reunion Weekend will be from 25-28th July, with a live performance by Mzungu Kichaa on Friday 26 that is open to the whole community.
Please keep your calendars free on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th October. This is when we will be celebrating the school’s 50th birthday and our official opening as UWC East Africa. I am both honoured and delighted that Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan, UWC president, will be celebrating with us.
As we look forward to welcoming many new students next year, we are also conscious that some of these students will not be returning home every vacation. A host family is a member of the school community who resides in Tanzania and is able to open their home (at weekends, in the vacations or for occasional meals) to one or more of these students. Host families become their second families and often provide the much-needed respite these students need. Please contact me if you would like to know more about becoming a host family.
New website and email addresses
As part of our preparations for the new year, we are changing our website and email addresses. Our website address will be www.uwcea.org and we will have common email addresses across the school. Email address for staff members will take the format: firstname.lastname@example.org. For example my address will be email@example.com.
