Next year we hope the team make it to Uganda for the same tournament with more numbers from the school!

In the last few years, the school has intensified its efforts in nurturing talent in extracurricular activities.

This has seen a steady rise in the number of clubs and societies in the school. The introduction of the Competency  Based Curriculum (CBC) has necessitated a paradigm shift in pedagogy, making learning more student-centered, practical and hands-on. In view of the above, the school has come up with the Activity Block Project  aimed at addressing the growing need for facilities to accommodate the needs identified.

After the mid of Term 2, classes from the Primary and Secondary sections geared up for the internally organized inter-class football tournament.

The Primary tournament was held in the afternoon break and The Secondary tournament in the evening after class.

The boys displayed skill, team strategy, intensity and discipline as each class put out it’s best players to contest for the trophies.

For the Primary Section the Standard 8s were the winners with Grade 6s emerging runners up.

For the Secondary Section the Form 3A were champs in a Form 3 finals derby which saw 3 Alpha scoop the runners up slot.

We hope for a good football season in Term 3 as school teams are picked for the International Schools Games.
