One of the most exciting discoveries for me in the last quarter was this Queen termite that we dug up whilst excavating the foundations for the new restaurant. Pictured above is Phil sharing the amazement with P2/3!
As we look forward to being back at school after our mid-term break I thought I would send an early newsletter this week. Partly to celebrate all the activities that took place at the end of Quarter 1 but also to draw your attention to the many events to look forward to in Quarter 2. We are back at School tomorrow and for everyone in the Secondary school who is as confused as me – it is going to be Day 5 on the academic schedule!
For those who were at the final assembly of the quarter last week, you will have met our newest staff member – Mr Adam Hacias. Adam joins us having previously worked in Geita so he is no stranger to Tanzania. He will be teaching Diploma and MYP Mathematics as well as Design to MYP. Welcome Adam. More of a profile on him and his family next week.
This weekend we will be hosting the PTA Car Boot Sale. See poster below. Everyone is welcome and there will be food on sale – the proceeds of which will go to a worthy Tanzanian Scholarship cause.
Congratulations to all those who particpated in the inaugural Buffalo Charge Rally which raised valuable funds for environmental re-wilding in the Kisongo area. Special thanks to parent Nick Harrison for co-ordinating such a difficult event. Also to our own UWCEA Diploma students for marshalling the checkponts so masterfully. Bravo!
Finally, for now, don’t forget to sign up for the annual Rotary Traithlon held at Arusha Campus. (See poster at the end of this newsletter) This is the fifth year this event has taken place and it is now a firmly established event on the Arusha Calendar. I shall say what I say every year – SIGN UP NOW to avoid disappointment! Every year we turn away late signees because the event is full and this is such a disappointment.
Here’s to a happy and healthy Quarter 2!
