Wildlife & Environment Club

The Christian Union meeting takes place on Wednesdays from 2:40 to 5:30 p.m. in the school hall. Students lead the praise and worship, and local preachers share challenging gospel and faith-building messages. Many have given their lives to Christ during these meetings, or as a result of them.
We are very pleased that students are receiving a good secondary education, but it is even more important that students come to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and continue to walk with Him day by day into their adult lives. This cannot be forced, but opportunities are given for students to come to personal faith experiences.
Guidance & Counselling
Pastoral care is an important aspect of school life. The students meet in Guidance & Counselling groups on Fridays from 4 to 5 p.m. Each group includes a teacher, and two lead students. Topics/issues are written down anonymously beforehand, and then discussed in the group. Private guidance & counselling sessions occur where students can share with teachers in strict confidence any issues that concern them.
General talks are sometimes given by professional counsellors.
Sports encourage teamwork, physical fitness, and discipline, football being the favourite for boys and girls (played separately). Other sports include volleyball, netball, athletics and rugby. Inter-school football matches are very competitive!
Activities take place at the local Mwiki Youth Sports Association (MYSA) ground a few hundred yards from the school on Thursdays from 2:40 to 5 p.m.
