End of Term Wrap Up: Field Trips, Clubs, Athletics & More!
The end of Term 1 is upon us. Daraja is in transition today, as Forms 1-3 depart from campus and journey to their respective destinations. “At 8 o’clock in the morning, a matatu leaves Daraja and we go to Nanyuki,” Shamsia, Form 3 said. “From there, travel all day and through the night by matatu, bus, and finally a sand truck to Marsabit. I will not reach my destination until late Saturday.”
The girls of Daraja have a lot to reflect on during the break (click the links to look back with them!). For the first time since opening, the Daraja Academy has a full campus, with all four forms enrolled. The Science and Conservation club stayed active with a field trip to Mpala Research Center and participating in a Science Congress. The Form 2s facilitated Daraja’s first business symposium, and the Media club created Daraja’s first school magazine, The Golden Mirror. Daraja’s first school debate, hosted by the newly established Debate club, was live tweeted so Daraja supporters on Twitter could follow along! And Daraja’s athletes outraced the competition, advancing to Provincials in several categories and placing 2nd in all of Laikapia County in Netball.
For the Form 4s, break has not yet begun. With an extended stay on campus, the senior students are still hard at work studying for their upcoming K.C.P.E. exams. The campus will still be very much alive with activity and reports, so stay tuned to our blog, Facebook and Twitter accounts to stay in the loop!
