Students this week have begun their end of term examinations, and will be closing school on 30th September, 2021.
We understand that during the exam week, the students usually feel stressed with their brains working on "over-drive". It's on this backdrop that we organized a Zumba dance session-at Manuel Alexander School- to have them dance-out the stress and rejuvenate before tackling the rest of their examinations.
They totally had fun and we wish them all the best in their examinations.

The students at Mekaela Weber Primary School, had been yearning for their turn to use the recently launched Mekaela Electronic Voting and Tallying system, and hence on 20th September, 2021 their wishes came true.
The system provided them with an opportunity to vote for their student leaders of choice in a digital fashion.
This was a great learning opportunity for the learners, parents and teachers who attended the function.
We believe that with this system, the learners will be able to appreciate the impact technology has in their lives now and in the future.

Mekaela Weber Primary School, based in Kombani area, has a very vibrant Art Club led by the patron-Mr. Aloise Ochieng.
Mr. Aloise doubles up as the Art, Craft and Music subject teacher in Grade 4 & 5.
The Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) brought back the Art, Craft and Music subject in Primary schools after almost two decades.
The club held their first ever Art Gallery and Exhibition on 11th September, 2021. The Art work presented was themed "Creativity within", whereby every student showcased their own individual creation made using locally available materials.
The Legendary Pablo Picasso once said "Every Child is an Artist..." and at Mekaela we strive to nurture our students in a holistic manner, encouraging gifts, talents and passions to thrive alongside their academic activities.

On 9th September, 2021; students from Mekaela Ratinga Primary School had their turn to use the Electronic Voting and Tallying system to elect their student leaders.
Unlike many other schools, that either conduct manual elections i.e. paper based; we at Mekaela are leading the pack in pioneering this electronic system that guarantees learners their Democratic right to vote using the 'secret-ballot' method, integrity of the ballots cast, and real-time tallying and result analysis.
The process also enhances their Digital Competencies especially given the fact that we're in the 21st Century, and with the CBC curriculum encompassing the digital co-competencies that the learners are supposed to attain.
We also know that this system and election process, will shape the children into great Kenyan and Global Citizens.
