AGE GROUP
We take pupils from Year 7 up to Year 11 with the sixth form helping out and acting as guides.

We go for hikes every other weekend throughout the year. Shark's Fin, Menengai, Longonot as well as Soysambu have all been conquered. A new addition is the "Pimple", so far, the toughest local challenge.

We cycle every week and participate in charity events like the Lake Nakuru National Park’s annual Cycle with the Rhino in September, Peponi School’s Hog Charge in January, Nanyuki Ten to Four in March. We encourage all students to bring a bicycle and so give them a chance to enjoy the beauty surrounding us in the Rift Valley.

We have a Mountain challenge every February. We have been up Mount Kenya for more than a decade and intend to attempt Mt Kilimanjaro and Elgon as well as Eburru. We encourage students and their parents to join us and have had great success with the Naituli family.
