Tony (Diploma 1) in thoughtful pose for his excellent self-portrait.
D1’s were working on self-portraits this week and I thought they were incredible. The portraits were all of a terrifically high standard and credit must go to the student artists AND also to their teacher, Ms Kate Swope, who has really raised the profile of art in the school. The portraits and other Secomdary art were on display this weekend at the Arusha Christmas Fair (see image below) where they attracted lots of complements. Thank you Kate and to all your art students!
The Christmas Fair presented an opportunity to tell the community what we are all about. The name of UWC is still new to many and there are many conversations to be had before UWC attains the household name status of ISM!
One way in which people can find out about UWC East Africa is to come along to our Open Day on December 11th. If you have friends or work colleagues who you would like to join our school, please ask them to come along with their children for this day. Everyone is welcome.
Finally, we are so grateful for the rain that has meant we splash from class to class through the school day. I am aware that many of our readers are not in Arusha so may not know about the torrential downpours we have been experiencing in recent weeks.
Have a super week,
