School Life

Hi everyone! Sorry we haven’t written for a long time! There is so much to talk about. But I will just tell you a bit about school now and also a Hip Hop Party.

We have really been enjoying ourselves at the school! I have loads of friends, including Lily from Finland, Tonya from Tanzania, Astrid from Denmark, Tia from Arusha, Ryan from Canada, Caleb from Bulgaria and many more! On Mondays we have Swahili lessons which I really enjoy. On Tuesdays we have cross country; I am the fastest girl in my class, but I am finding it hard to beat a girl called Alphie in the other class, and a few boys. On Wednesday we play Rounders, and tomorrow we have a Rounders tournament! I’m in it and I’m a little nervous. After school we have Netball Club which is very fun. On Thursdays we have French and science. In science we are learning about lifecycles. After school I have Tennis club and Louisa has art and crafts club. On Fridays we have ICT and swimming. I love swimming so much!
At school, there are monkeys everywhere! In the trees, in the rubbish bins and in the corridor. We have to lock our classroom doors so they don't come in!
The Hip Hop Party
On Saturday ( a few weeks ago) we went to a hip hop party. It was by the lake, and good fun. Pastor Zakio and his family were there, as well of many people from MICC ... and lots of street boys. We had hip hop music and dancing and conversations. Then we set up the tables with Pilau ( a delicious type of rice with vegetables) and rice, cabbage, meat stew, beans and watermelon. I served the beans and the watermelon. Then we had more dancing, and my dad won the dancing contest! Then we heard rapping testimonies (put to a beat and said very fast). It was loads of fun. Since then it has been really good seeing the boys around and at church.   
Saturday was a great day! I got my Liverpool shirt! I love it so so so so much! Go Liverpool!!!!


  1. Great to hear all you're doing. I hope you beat all the other bounders at rounders.

  2. I enjoy reading your blog posts very much! I have a question for you though: what sort of insect and/or bug life do you have around you? Do they cause trouble? Are they ever cool and interesting? Oh dear, I ended up with three questions... and if you can put up some photos of them as well, I'd really enjoy that! I have a friend who worked in Zambia who is very keen on insects, so he'd be able to identify anything unusual - if that helps!
    God bless you,
