Hello, it is important to remind you that we are on our last ends this term. Our pupils completed the exams today. Standard eight pupils sat for a zonal test while the other pupils did an internal test. The teachers are now very busy marking the papers and compiling results. We shall share with you as soon as they will be ready.
Again, we have had the ECDE singing game team seriously carrying out their practices geared towards the national competitions which start on 4th April, 2018 in Nairobi. We always wish them the very best.
Finally, we want to appreciate your concern for the school. You always work hard to fund every activity here, we also work hard to make it a friendly learning environment for our pupils. All the best always. We have then gone home for the Easter holidays till Tuesday next week when we shall return to school.

HOMABAY COUNTY DRAMA FESTIVAL REPORT-WEDNESDAY 28TH FEBRUARY 2018.
THEME:Enhancing National Cohesion and Integration through Theatre and Film.
T his year’s Homabay County festival was held at St. Francis Nyangajo Girls’ High School- Kendu Bay. Four teachers: Vera, Mawline, Albert and Calvince took the team to the festival venue. They accompanied a total of 60 casts who took part in two major disciplines: Dramatized Cultural Creative Dance and Dramatized ECDE Singing Game. The team left the school compound at 10.05am and reached the venue at noon. The first item on stage was the ECDE Singing Game and later at 4pm the dance took to the stage.
Dramatized ECDE Singing Game managed to obtain the following titles:
Best costume and décor
Winning Singing Game 2018
This translates that it will represent the entire County at the Lake Region Festival. We are yet to receive certificates both for participating and winning in the festival.
Dramatized Cultural Creative Dance, on the other hand, became position 4 hence could not secure a chance in the next level of competition. We arrived happily at school at around 6.30pm.
Lake Region Drama Festival is scheduled as from 13th-17th March 2018 at Kisii School in Kisii County. From my desk, I wish to thank the entire team of committed minds and to wish them success going forward. I can’t afford to forget the exemplary leadership of Evans and Augustine. They always stand with the drama team at the times of need.
Finally, I wish to extend my sincere gratitude to our Swedish sponsors. Thank you in plural- for the success of every activity here is right at your hands. How I wish you had a lengthy life span that you might live to witness the success of the young blood you’ve always supported here in Kenya. Regards.
WEEK 8 REPORT FROM 18TH FEBRUARY TO 24TH FEBRUARY 2018
Greetings to you all. I hope all is well.
The week began well as was expected. All the teachers, pupils and the non-teaching staff reported on time ready to carry out their respective duties. A number of activities were conducted during the week.
The normal learning process was well conducted as teachers and pupils attended the class sessions as timetabled. The results of the mid-term test were released on Monday 19th Feb.
We had the privilege to receive a team of sponsors from Sweden led by Anders – the Chairman of the Foundation together with Mr. Oyuga – the patron of the school.
On Thursday 22nd February, we once again had an opportunity to celebrate the good results posted by the grade eight candidates in the 2017 national examination. The Education cum Prize-Giving Day was graced by a number of guests that included the sponsors from Sweden, the patron, Equity Bank Oyugis Branch among other visitors and friends of St. Christine Family. The day was very successful.
The trainings in preparation to the sub-county drama festival were on. The school managed to present two genres at the sub-county drama festival held on Saturday 24th and both items managing to be ranked the best. I congratulate these young children and wish them good luck as they exploit their talents.
In conclusion I want to state that the activities of the week went on well and smoothly. Everything was a success with little challenges. I want to appreciate the efforts that were put in place by everyone to ensure that the welfare of the orphans are well catered for. Both teaching and the non-teaching staff, who worked hand in hand to ensure that the pupils had their lessons, meals and sufficient care and support at the right time and for creating a favorable learning environment.
Lastly, I would just thank you, the sponsors and friends in Sweden for your continued support to the orphans, the school and the community at large.
