The New Year continues to be exciting here at Red Rose. The students got the pleasure of meeting Bradley Clements who works as a lawyer and her daughter Amelia Moore a second year student at Amherst College in the USA and a former Potomac School student of our executive director, Kenneth Okoth.

Meeting these new friends from the USA who also know all our friends from LitWorld and the Potomac School was wonderful. The Red Rose children were ecstatic as they are always, happy to meet new people and to make new friends. Both Bradley and Amelia got to visit them in their classrooms and they played some of their favorite games during games break. Bradley read stories to the lower primary students and Amelia with her love for art did some art work with them. We definitely enjoy having them with us!

The Christmas holidays are over and it is time to start off the school year with a bang. Students are thrilled getting to see their friends, move a grade up and learn new things. It is all super exciting for both the teachers and students alike.
Moreover, it's the beginning of a history as the pioneers of class eight at the Red Rose School begin their classes. This is definitely a great step for the school as they work towards making a mark in the national academic chart. It is a new year of great promises, expectations and hopes for the Red Rose fraternity.
