We made it!!

On the night of the 17th of November, the German School Nairobi opened its doors to its first ever Let’s Dance for Charity Event – in favour of our partner school, the Starkids School in Githogoro. A good hundred people took the opportunity to get together and spend a nice evening in good company and happy spirits. We had a fabulous evening with excellent food provided by Gaye D’Costa and our own excellent new kitchen chef Florian Kliem. The ambience was set with lighted tents from Goldwings, who kindly reduced the costs for us in favour of Starkids! And drinks were organised by Summit Beer with support from Dieter Gachie – except the welcome drink, which was made following the secret recipe of one of our school members...

The U17 & U19 teams of the German School Football Centre have been in Mombasa from Friday, October 6th to Sunday to play against Bandari FC and Nyali YC.  The journey had no technical hick-ups and was a wonderful experience.  The private busses in Nairobi and Mombasa were in time, the new SGR-train carried us like on silk, the train personnel was kind with a Chinese still here and there, Mombasa offered its best:  easy-going Swahili and not to warm, lunch on Saturday on a gorgeous terrace above the Old Port for 460 KES, the 2 nights in a proper apartment hotel at the North Coast, a 60.000 tons freighter leaving the post just when we arrived and the ocean with high tide and beautiful waves when we were at Big Tree Beach.  Of our 22 players, 15 had never seen the ocean.

9.30 a.m., German School Nairobi. More and more people were making their way to the Sports Hall. 22 Class 1 pupils could barely carry their overflowing Schultüten, needless to mention the heavy school bags. Parents, sometimes even grannies and grandpas, friends and relatives accompanied the children. Some of the kids were somewhat anxious, others simply curious. Pupils of Classes 2, 3 and 4 were already waiting for their new friends in the hall.
