Just to give you a general idea of what an average day is like for my students.
5:00 am: Wake up, sweep and mop the dorms, clean choos, older children help the younger children bath (they use a tub of water from a nearby lake or rainwater and bath outside)
6:00 am: Run and exercise
7:00 am: Those who ran and exercised take a bath
7:30am: Breakfast. They have porridge for breakfast and stand/sit outside while they drink their porridge.
8:00 am: Assembly. They line up in a circle around the flagpost. Songs are sung, announcements are made, and prayers are said.
8:20 am: Classes (they have KSL, Creative Arts, P.E., English, Science, Social Studies, Christianity, and Math classes)
11:00-11:30 am: Tea/Porridge break
11:30-12:50 pm: Classes
4:30-5:30pm: If the school is low on water, students will walk (sometimes over an hour round-trip) to fill jerry cans of water to bring back to the school. They also fill many jerry cans of water for the cooks to cook the next day’s meals with.
5:30-6:30pm: Students get some free time. They can either chat with each other or play sports (netball, handball, soccer/football, volleyball).
6:30-7:00pm: Dinner. They may eat ugali with kale or cabbage.
7:00-8:00pm: They get ready for the next day which may involve washing their clothes by hand and polishing their shoes.
8:00-9:00pm: They head back to classrooms to do some studying.
9:30pm: Students go to bed
Students usually wake up around 7-7:30 am. They clean, wash clothes, study, farm (maize/corn), watch TV, and play sports.
