Today, the Mully Children's Family Choir visited St. John's School to perform and spread their message of hope to our community.
The Mully Children's Family (MCF) is a children's charity which has been impacting the lives of Kenyan children since 1989. MCF currently has 2,500 children under their care and protection and in the last 27 years, over 10,000 children have been rescued and rehabilitated. MCF provides children a family to belong to, a chance to dream and become valuable contributors in their communities and country.
We are pleased to report that the Board of Governors voted to proceed with the next phase of the campus expansion: the Arts and Science Centre.
The new building will add approximately 23,000 square feet of custom-designed space to enrich these programmes rather than for expanding enrollment. The new facilities will help advance the goal of academic excellence.
With the development permit application process underway, the anticipated date for breaking ground is June 2017. The target completion date is August 2018 in time to start the academic year.
All this would not be possible without the generous support of our St. John’s community. The Imagine. Inspire. Create. Capital Campaign has surpassed $7 million, well on its way to meeting the goal of $10 million. Our gratitude goes to all families who have supported so far.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the Diamond Foundation for their generous contributions to the St. John’s School Endowment. As each of their grand-daughters graduated from the school, the Diamond Foundation has supported the school’s endowment with a gift of $100,000. The family has expressed their gratitude for the outstanding education St. John’s has provided for the girls. They are committed to providing the same opportunity for other children in the future.
