As you may have seen in one of our earlier posts we recently moved our children who are attending primary school to Mtwapa Elite Academy. This is quite a change so I thought it would be good to tell you a bit more about it and show some more of our photos.
Mtwapa Elite is the best primary school in Kilifi county, their average mark for children graduating from Standard 8 is 368 out of 500 (over 73%).
The school and compound are amazing. The school is a three story building which is impeccably maintained and has lots of great facilities for the children to use including a computer room, library and sports field.
They also have a fleet of school buses (which Saidi and Pendo use daily) and offer both Swimming and Judo as extracurricular activities.
Whilst we were in Kenya we met with the head teacher of the primary school and the class teachers for all of our children. Despite our children having only been part of the school for a few weeks all of the teachers knew the children well and spoke of specific areas where they thought the children was performing well or could improve. This is really useful as Rieder can proactively monitor these areas and provide extra resources or tuition if needed.
This was a big change for the Milele children but I am glad to say they are all settling in well.
We really hope Mtwapa Elite is going to help the children to reach their full potential!
