Education Outings

Children attending CHinK Academy hardly leave Mtwapa, so educational visits are arranged by trustees.  This entails hiring transport from other schools, deciding where each class goes according to children's age, organizing food, booking venues etc.

Pictured below are baby, PP1 & PP2 classes, children aged up to age 6.  They are on a trip to Haller Park and although the children are young, it is never too early for them to learn about orphaned animals.  Haller Park is a Nature Park Sanctury for plants and animals.  The children were given a talk, tailored to their age group, about the park and had the chance to see animals in their natural environment.  Especially of interest was feeding time, being able to see the crocdiles and hippos being fed and a bonus was feeding the  giraffe.

Another educational outing for CHinK students was a visit to the old Victorian train station.

A first time journey on a train was enjoyed by the students, who discovered the history of railways in Kenya.
