Kenya Trip

The S5 trip to Kenya was a great success - 42 pupils and six staff travelled to the Laikipia region of Kenya for two weeks of community work, conservation and adventure activities. We achieved a lot, particularly at Mitero Primary School, where we planted 130 trees, cemented the floors and plastered the walls of two classrooms, made 30 chairs and 6 hexagonal tables for a nursery classroom in addition to painting murals to decorate the nursery's walls. It was a superb achievement!

In between all the hard work we spent two days learning about the challenges of conservation in Kenya at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. The highlights include seeing lots of elephants, giraffes, rhinos and a lion! We also got involved in the conservation of the last two northern white rhinos by clearing their enclosure and scooping up their poop! At the end of the trip, we were privileged to spend some time in the amazing Ngare Ndare Forest, where we rock climbed, abseiled down a waterfall and jumped into the blue pools from dizzying heights. It was a spectacular trip.

Many thanks to Rift Valley Adventures for looking after us from start to finish and providing us with such an amazing experience.
