Raising Funds for Football Kits

Football Kit Required

Work has started on fundraising to purchase a school football kit. Apart from the fact that most of the kids are absolutely football mad the ’goal’ of the project is to further advertise the school while competing against other schools and teams. Few schools have football kits so it would be another way to attract attention to Faithmount. South Hunsley School in England has also offered additional kits like netball later in the year, when they replace their kits.

So far £70 of the required £160 has been raised.

Repairs to Floor in Classroom Block 1

Rapairs to Floor Required

Plans are underway for future work required to the floor in block 1. Currently the floors consist of chalk dust, resulting in rather a lot of white dusty clothes, and children. We are currently obtaining quotes for either a stone floor or a concrete floor for each of the block 1 classrooms.

Books, Desks, Chairs & Mats

Books, Desks, Chairs & Mats

As pupil numbers continue to grow so does our need for additional text books, desks and chairs. We have managed to provide this equipment for all the pupils that joined this term, but we desperately need to raise additional funds for the next intake of new pupils. In addition we need some mats for the kindergarten classes for when our youngest children have their afternoon nap, as they currently just lie on the floor.

We are pleased to report that the animal feed in the background has already been removed from the classroom!

Logo Competition

Logo Competition

Children from Faithmount were given the opportunity to choose what they wanted included in their school logo. They wanted the Kenya Flag, the Kenya Shield, coconut trees to represent the coastal location and books to represent learning.

This information was passed on to South Hunsley school pupils in England who ran a competition to create the logo to be used for Faithmount School. The winning design, shown on the home page and used for school letterhead was designed by Ellie.

Thank you and well done Ellie, a fantastic design incorporating everything that Faithmount pupils wanted.

Classroom Block 2 Roof Repair

I am pleased to be able to report that the repair work to our rather sorry looking roof on block 2 is now fully completed. Sufficient funds were raised to enable the work to be completed. The next stage is to paint block 2 inside and out so look out for updated pictures after my next visit in April.
