Dawn Service 26th April 2018
It was a blessed day for Wanawake Kwa Wanawake Frank Chappell informal school. Students and their teachers were treated to a coveted night out in a nearby guest house. At 4:30am all the children were ready for the big task i.e. singing in honor of the slain ANZAC heroes. At the war cemetery the students were met with pitch dark silence where the only ray of brightness was the lit candle lights, at 5:30 the service commenced from the Australian High Commissioner lo and behold the esteemed Frank Chappell informal school bellowed with angelic voices, singing “Guide me o thou great redeemer”. Truly it was a fitting song and moment to celebrate, mourn and to thank our heroes who fought and lost their lives for our today. After everything we were treated to a delicious breakfast, truly speaking that was the most awaited time to crown the ceremony.

Schools Re-Open For Second Term
It is always good and full filling to spend time with our students during the holidays, they make our center lively as we spend time guiding and instructing our students. Second term was a long awaited term for some of our primary school children who were set to join a new boarding school St. Benedicts Primary School, a Catholic school located in Nairobi. According to our strategic plan, one of our objectives is to have all our children placed in boarding schools. This is the reason we tried this new school with 8 of our primary school children joining in second term. We hope it is a good school and our children are going to benefit from it, and with time many more students will join in. We wish our students well during this school period.
