On Wednesday the 24th of September the BTEC Travel and Tourism class went to the African Walking Company. Located in a very isolated and extremely private area, the African Walking Company’s headquarters is in Ilboru, Sakina. They rent the land, which is owned by Mike Metili, who also owns a lodge nearby.

On Friday 26th September, our Lower Primary Athletics Carnival took place at the main campus. All of our students from Nursery, Reception, Year One and Year Two, from both campuses, took part. It was great fun for all and everyone had a chance to take part in all of the events. These included parachute, long jump, sack race, basketball rolling, obstacle course, softball, high jump, bean bag race and 50m relay. Refreshments were on hand and many parents turned up to support their little ones as they moved around the different events. Many thanks to Mr Kevin for organising the whole event with such efficiency.

On September 2nd, 2014, the AS Business Studies and BTEC Business classes went on a joint excursion to visit the great ‘Shanga’ work station and store. For all those whom are not aware of the Shanga community, let me brief you; Shanga is a business that deals with producing different types of jewellery, accessories, dishes, vases, shawls, and much more using only recycled material, mainly glass.

St Constantine’s is very pleased to be offering the BTEC Level 3 Travel and Tourism course to a very keen group of Year 12 learners this year. The course is designed to be vocational in nature and this provides the students with the opportunity to explore the Travel and Tourism sector in great detail. I am looking for your support in enabling the students to gain as much as possible from their learning in this area and would very much appreciate it if you could contact me if you work in the sector and would be able to provide support for the course.

On Saturday, 24th May 2014 a group of 14 St. Constantine's students visited a Masai village.  They left with the aim to build a pre-school for the village children.  Great was their amazement to find out that this is a woman’s job as it is believed that it is bad luck for men to do any building.  The boys were relieved as they watched how the girls mixed the cow dung and mud mixture for the walls of the pre-school.  The boys left with some men for hunting and experienced how to barbecue a goat on an open bush fire. 

Across our two schools, all Grade 1 and 2 students have an opportunity to be involved in extra- curricular activities that not only teach new skills, but help the children develop their academic potential. At the Town Campus, we have many extra-curricular activities for the children to choose from. Some are offered by teachers at our school, while others are taught by outside specialists.
