  6. Class teachers/Year tutors will educate their students on how to prevent the virus spreading;
    • Wash hands thoroughly and frequently, preferably with sanitizer.

    • If you have to cough or sneeze, do it in the crook of your elbow and report it immediately.
    • Avoid physical contact especially involving hands and/or face. This includes handshakes!

The trip to Mwanza last weekend was a great success and yet again our swim squad the FK Blue Marlins took the gala by storm! Between them, the 12 swimmers won 15 bronze medals, 8 silvers and 7 golds, including Dimitri, Daniel, Andrea and Michael who each won a medal for the first time.

Linnet was 2nd runner-up and William won the trophy in their age groups. Overall we came fourth out of 11 teams. It was a wonderful achievement and a very enjoyable event. Thanks to coaches, parents and everyone who supported our swimmers especially Mr Ali who endured a 19-hour bus trip to be there!!
