Welcome back all! It’s great to see everyone back refreshed and ready to take on Quarter 2.
Things are already hopping on campus. Even though CCAs have not started yet, our sports teams are busy with fixtures, our cast and band continue to rehearse for the musical, and the House Council is busy planning events for this Quarter. Speaking of which, our first event is coming up quickly! Next Friday, October 29th the secondary school will celebrate Halloween by dressing up in costumes. We will hold a costume parade in the canteen during the morning break with prizes including House points and candy.
The D1s are excited to finally have a chance to participate in Project Week. Project proposals were due Friday, October 22nd. We are looking forward to seeing what sort of projects they have come up with. Project Week takes place at the end of January, so they will have a lot of work to turn these proposals into reality.
House Council is planning our first UWC Cultural Spirit Week to take place in November. A new twist on the traditional spirit week, this year we hope to anchor our activities each day with a celebration of the various cultures here at UWC East Africa. Held the week of November 22nd-26th we hope to attract students (and even parents!) to perform in a show of cultural dances, songs, plays, and poetry on the night of November 25th. If you would like to participate, please drop me an email!
