DGS children from classes 4 to 7 went on their first ever educational tour which was sponsored by Mr Hassan Omar, the Mombasa Senator. The start of the tour was a visit to the Sabaki River, the second longest river in Kenya, and were taught about the crocodile and Hippopotamus infested river. Next they went to the Vasco da Gama pillar and then on to the Malindi national Museum
Lunch was rare treat with pilau (rice, meat and Arabic spices) and brown bread, kindly provided by the Hon. Mishi Juma Khamis, the Mombasa Government Women’s Representative. The drinks of water and soda were generously donated by the Castle Royal Hotel.
The tour then visited the Gede ruins, the remains of a 13th century Swahili town. Highlights of the day were climbing a very high tree house and visiting the snake park. It was a wonderful experience and one the children will remember for a very long time.
