I can’t quite believe that we have got to the end of our first week! Of course, the activities seem to revolve around our new residential students for now. On Friday, the PYP students had a stupendous time playing games with the Diploma students during extended share time. Thanks to our two co-ordinators Mr Anderson and Mrs Bowen for organising such a fun event.
The previous weekend the Residential students were out in force planting trees, flowers, building roads and making paths. All in the name of service to the UWC East Africa Arusha Campus community. Here are some of the students pictured above planting border flowers outside Acacia House.
Whilst there is considerable work still to do on Arusha Campus over the next year or so, much has already been accompished! I wish to take the opportunity in the first newsletter of the year to thank several of the people who have worked tirelssly behind the scenes this summer to ensure that we were ready for our grand opening. Walter (Head of Maintenance) and his whole team, Mezabine (Canteen Manager) and her team, Rajabu (Head Driver), Emmanuel (Head gardener) and his crew, Mary (Housekeeping Manager) and her ladies, Greg and Ibrahim (IT guys), Baltazzari and his sewing machine and of course Caroline (Person in charge of Phil!). Personally I think their collective contributions have been priceless and am very grateful to them indeed.
Here’s to a fabulous year!
