Welcome at the German School Nairobi! Karibu sana!
We are delighted about your interest in the German School Nairobi. Our school offers a demanding, high-quality education for German as well as foreign-speaking children and for students from our host country Kenya.
Our school's bilingual profile will be further accentuated and enhanced by the impending introduction of the "Deutsche Internationale Abitur" (German International High School Diploma / School Leaving Examination Certificate) which will, at the same time, help to maintain our high quality standard and international competitiveness.
At present, 206 students from 20 different nationalities attend classes at our school. Our extensive compound also accommodates our bilingual kindergarten (133 children).
This school year, we, the class 11, embarked on a 2 week trip to Germany to discover our options after the Abitur.
On the 29.11.2016 we drove to Lukenya with a school bus. It was a two hour drive to there. In the bus we were singing , playing games and eating snacks. When we arrived we checked into our rooms and started with the activities. We did activities like ball games, the high ropes, out and concentration games.
On Tuesday the 29th of November, we got on to the Savage bus at around 8 o’clock. We then started our journey. On the way we shared laughs, talked and listened to music. We were all full of joy and excitement. After around two hours, the road got bumpy and that was when we knew we were about to reach camp. Immediately we stepped foot on camp territory the first thing we got of course were… rules.
On Monday, December 5th we (Barbara Brüderle and Sandra Sallat) met for a jolly ‘Pack the Christmas Bag’ morning. Unfortunately two of our co-packers Severine Heneveld and Karen Hoyer who would have loved to join in the fun did not make it due to sickness and meetings.
This week we had a very interesting guest speaker at the GSN as part of our preparation for the MUN-weeks in January and February.
In September and October, the parent representatives together with GSN invited newcomers and long-term residents alike on tours to get to know Nairobi.
The German School Nairobi participated at the ISK swim meet on 11th and 12th November with overwhelming results.
As the Academic and Careers Advisor, I would hereby like to inform you about the possibility of visiting the United States International University (USIU) Africa.
The German school has now a new swimming coach. Here are the words from Mr. John Gitonga:
