It has been a long week for parents, teachers and the pupils at Akili prep school. The school had to close for one week owing to the general elections that took place on 4th March. Most families and school heads were afraid the ugly events that followed the disputed 2007 elections could recur. We thank God because there has been immense peace during and after the elections. The prevailing peace has enabled the schools in Kenya to reopen this week. Akili prep reopened on Monday and the kids were very happy to be back to school.
During the one week recess, the kids enjoyed singing, reciting poems and memory verses at the Prince of Peace Church. Over 150 kids come to the prince of peace Sunday school service.
The kids will break for holidays in April. For now, it is back to school.
