Albert

‘My name is Albert, am 16 years old and in secondary school. The name of my school is called St.George’s boys Secondary school. This school is located within our Kilifi County about 70 miles away from Mtwapa and is built on a hilltop where we see the entire surrounding community while at school.

The student population from form1-form 4 is about 800 students and all are boys. Am in form 2 and in our class we are 54 students. Our school is a boarding school and so all students sleep at the school, in our dormitory we are 18 students.

The subjects which am now doing are Maths, English,Kiswahili,Physics,Chemistry,Biology,Agriculture and History. We do have extra curriculum activities i.e games and sports as follows, football, Hockey, basketball, volleyball, handball.badminton, lawn tennis, Rugby and table tennis.

From the above sports and games I participate in rugby and am happy that eversince  i joined the school team our school has been performing extremely well in both locally and national tournaments. Am further happy to inform you that, I have so far gotten important rugby certificates both from the sub-county and regional games having emerged position 3.

I love my school very much as we have very good teachers who take good care of us while in class at during the games. While in class they make sure that all students have understood any kind of topic before proceeding to another topic, due to that my general class performance has been good. My class mates too are very co-operative and social.

For my future career I’d like to be an army where I intend to join the  Kenya Army so as to protect my country, I believe I have all the qualities needed to join the army due to my long height, physical body outlook and the good education I’ll have got through the Mtomondoni sponsorship programme.

As a boarding school, here is our school food menu;-

Monday………………lunch……..rice and beans/super……..’ugali’(cooked corn flour )and beans.

Tuesday…………….lunch………’githeri’(cooked corn maize with beans)/super…..’ugali’,cabbage and beef.

Wednesday……..lunch………..rice and beans/super……..ugali and beans.

Thursday………….lunch…………githeri/super………ugali and beans.

Friday………………lunch………rice and beans/super….ugali and beans.

Saturday………….lunch………ugali and beans/super……….pilau.

Sunday…………….lunch…………githeri/super……….ugali and beans.

During weekends i.e Saturday from 8.00am-10.00am, we do have morning classes. From 10.00am 12.00 noon, we do generally cleaning of the school classes and dormitories. Later in the afternoon we do washing of our school uniform then later go for sports practice. On Sundays we go to church in one of our local church located near the school.

In case of a student falling ill, in our school we have a club called the St.John’s Ambulance where the club members are coached by doctors on how to perform general first aid and treatment and so the st.John’s ambulance is like our school dispensary. However the doctor may be called in case of a serious student illness and if possible further hospital referral may be done by the doctor.

Finally to all my sponsors, I want to take this opportunity to thank you very much for the great assistance you’ve been doing to me towards my education since I was in the lower primary school and may God bless you.

Yours child,Albert’.
