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.

It has been an amazing start to the 2015 - 2016 sporting year with the St Constantine’s Athletics Team (The Titans) bringing home the Northern Tanzania Athletics Association (NTAA) All-Schools Athletics trophy from the ISM meet on 10th October.


We had over 150 students who represented SCIS in an honorable manner, showing dedication, determination, sweat and tears. They were cheered on by a number of teachers, coaches, parents and peers who came out to support the passion our students showed.

  St. Constantine’s A Level biologists visited ISM Arusha on the 10th and 11th September 2015 to attend a lecture presented by the Aston University Team, Dr. Julia Brown and Dr. Mohammed Ashraf.

   On day one, the team introduced themselves and the invisible, invincible, treatable and preventable world of microbiology. We learned that the world around us is full of microorganisms which are too small to be seen with the naked eye. To understand this tiny life forms, microbiologists study and understand how to control them.

On Monday morning, 22nd June, 37 Year 6 students and four teachers blazed a trail to the Savage Wilderness Safari Camp in Sagana, Kenya. It was a significant moment for the students and teachers involved, but also for the school as a whole, where international trips are becoming normal in the Secondary School, but have rarely happened on the Primary side.
