Welcome to the German School Nairobi! Karibu sana!

From 24 August 2020, we will continue with e-learning.

Since March 2020, the German School Nairobi and its kindergarten have also been closed due to the Corona Pandemic. Since then, lessons have been offered continuously in all subjects via e-learning. We were able to carry out the graduations, tests in class 10 as well as to take the Abitur.

Unfortunately we will not be able to return to school after the summer holidays. The Kenyan government announced on 6.7.20 that all schools will be closed until January 2021, so that we will continue the e-learning.

You can see how lively our school life is despite all the difficulties by reading our newsletters and watching the numerous videos.
