Nairobi County Girl Power Clubs hold Successful March Sports Day

Saturday 28th March 2015, welcomed us with showers in the morning but later in the day the weather
became friendly and we were able to start our sports day. The girls streamed in as we took their registration being coordinated by Carlcy Hongo, we noted that it was the first time for Nairobi Day to come for sports day which was commendable. We registered a total number of 70 girls which was a drop compared to the last sports we had in February, this was due to the absence of Nazarene Primary who did not show up. We presented 9 teams and divided them in groups of 7 a team, only one patron from St Catherine managed to accompany his girls, the others were absent without an apology. This finally proves that the girls have now become leaders and their teachers are confident enough to let them travel and manage their event themselves!
