RADIX JUNIOR ARCHIVE 2008
This year, Social work took a different turn, we visited Children's homes. One of the homes visited was Nyumbani Children's Home. We did different tasks like selecting beans, rice, greengrams and we played with the children. We also visited Mother Teresa's Home for disabled in Huruma - Nairobi which also left a mark on us.
Spruce Up the Home
Ranging from making beds, cleaning bathrooms to mantaining a sitting room, we took great delight in the sessions that were geared to making us more feminine. They took place on 9th February and 1st March and were conducted by Mrs.Nzamu and Miss Muli a lecturer in house keeping in Kibondeni Collenge.
Mid Term Adventure - Climbing Kilimambogo (16th Feb),Mt.Longonot (October)
A new discovery this year! All the club members looked forward to it. We arrived in good time and started the ascent. At first it seemed easy but soon we realised the walk through the bushes was no mean task. It was a 24 kilometer walk. Although some gave up on the way a good number reached the top. We also took up another challenge of climbing Longonot, a crater Mountain located in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya.We look forward to the next adventure!
A camp to remember! Organised with the help of Mrs. Muthama a parent in the Club, many girls took part. The venue of the camp was Le Soleil, a hotel at the Kenyan Coast. There were a variety of activities from Aqua Sports, Crazy Olympics, Treasure Hunt to dancing. Each day was filled with exciting activities. We also had discussions on TV programmes, music and social ettiquette. The African night was a great thrill with the Maasai's and Mijikenda's performing some beautiful dances for us. We danced to the tunes of East Africa i.e 'Bongo Music'.We left the camp with nostaligic hearts!
