Our annual EYFS Sports Morning took place on Friday 7th June at the Infant School.
The children had a fantastic time competing and showing off some of the physical skills they have been learning over this year in PE with Mr O!
Gross motor skills are a key element of the EYFS Physical Development curriculum and it is amazing to watch how much the children have grown in their physical skills and ability over the year.
Many parents came to cheer on the children and get involved competing as well - thank you for being such good sports!
"It is with great excitement that we announce that the Hadza of the Yaeda Valley have won the 2019 Equator Prize. The prize is awarded to indigenous groups by the UNDP Equator Initiative for innovative work in developing nature based solutions to climate change and promoting sustainable development. The Hadza have been recognized for their Yaeda Valley Project, a forest conservation initiative."
What exciting news?!! As a school who supports Carbon Tanzania and who have first hand experience of the way of life of the Hadza community, through their Silver Dragon expedition, we are delighted to congratulate them on their success as an Equator Initiative winning community.

From Saturday 25th May to Tuesday 28th May 2019 our International Award Gold Students took on their expedition trek in the Babati area, South East of Arusha. Here is Mr Asher Sijenyi with all they got up to:
"The group left Kisongo Campus around 8.15am on the Saturday and managed to get to Babati by 10am. We headed straight to the first assignment – a trek to Riroda area of Babati. The next day we trekked to Gallapo, managing to cover 22 km. This was the toughest section of the expedition. On Monday, our journey took us to Kiru valley – the agricultural basket of the region. We managed to cover 25km. Last but not least was Tuesday's assignment - the breath-taking 'Kisima cha mungu'. This is a deep crater which once filled with water and fish but later on dried up leaving a gaping crater. It was fun going down the crater but, trust me, one of the most difficult climbs we had in the whole journey. To use one of the climber’s words after being cajoled to descend – Alfred had this to say: Today I have witnessed one of the most daring trickery played on me by my team mates."
Congratulations to you all on a fantastic expedition!
