“Eddie! Eddie! Eddie! Oi! Oi! Oi!”

116 students and 12 staff attended ISM weekend, Moshi on 27th - 29th November. This was the largest sporting trip SCIS has ever undertaken and was a resounding success. The school entered teams in Basketball, Football, Netball, Swimming, Badminton, Tennis, Volleyball and Ultimate Frisbee. Students were commended for their behaviour and sportsmanship throughout the weekend and all thoroughly enjoyed the event.

Environmental Council members attended the Alliance Francaise Climate Change Film Festival on Monday 23rd November. We watched ‘Le Glace et le Ciel’ which translates to ‘The ice and the sky’ and the movie portrayed the life and work of Claude Lorius. He is a Frenchman, who worked in Antarctica to discover the scientific secrets held in the ice.

The Primary Round Square Community Service students have been involved in preparing books for donation to schools in the Arusha region and beyond.  There were several of the same titles in excess in our school therefore we thought that to share the love of reading with other Tanzanian children would be in line with the goals of our Round Square program.  Several students from Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 spent time stamping the books for donation and then allocating sets of books.

On the 7th November a group of representatives from St Constantine’s went to the International School of Kenya to attend a Round Square mini-conference focused on the refugee crisis. The students listened to a guest speaker, Dr. Rory Nefdt, who works for UNICEF who told them all about the conditions in refugee camps around Africa.

During the last week before the term one midterm break, the Prefects council organized a bake sale for the whole school. We had brownies, cupcakes and other desserts on sale during that week, all of which students could not to get enough of.

The purpose of this event was to collect funds to build up a float. We raised our target amount and for that we would like to thank, all members of the student body, the kitchen staff and the members of staff who supported our cause.
