You can borrow books from the library, but these are mainly reading books.

At the start of the 2024 school year (school year is a calendar year), the school decided to invest extra in updating and expanding the library, especially in terms of method books. For the lower grades and the first three classes of primary education, this concerns the method books

(preparatory) arithmetic, exercise, environmental activities and visual arts education. For the highest three classes, books are also required for English, Kiswahli, technology, music and nutrition. They want more copies for the higher classes so that children can have a book in front of them at school. Purchasing the desired method books means 2,500 euros. As a Foundation, we were able to transfer half of this immediately. We use various channels such as social media to acquire the other half. This should still be possible in 2024. Last weekend we received a message that the first books had been purchased (see image on the right).
