Tuesday was ‘Adventure Day’ for our Round Square delegates in Kenya, which involved camping in Nairobi National Park. Delegates enjoyed two game drives to observe the local wildlife and entertainment provided by Maasai dancers performing the jumping dance.
Delegates were at Brookhouse School on Wednesday. They focused on what democracy means and how it can be furthered around the world, hearing from experts and taking part in small group discussions (known as ‘Baraza’ groups – a Kiswahili word meaning a ‘public meeting’) and activities.
In the evening delegates were hosted by Kenyan families in order to experience genuine African culture and hospitality.
Thursday was ‘Service Day’. All students took part in a project to improve an underprivileged school in some way. This was through helping with activities, painting classrooms or helping renovate the buildings. These service activities make an enormous difference to the communities they serve, they are very rewarding for the students involved and is very much at the heart of being a Round Square School. Days like this show us how special our membership is, and how privileged we are to be part of such an inspirational network of schools!
