At Kep Gardens we are very proud of our older football team. They are part of a roundrobin football competition held at Dom Bosco. Why are we proud? They have no coach, no direction, they organize practices themselves, get to the competition themselves and although they are not winning, they are not doing too badly. It shows how much they […]

Kep Gardens held 3 Sports Days to ensure […]

Art Classes

Classes 6 and 8 had a fun time last night making musical instruments and jewellery during their art class with Bettina Gebhardt. Imagination is a wonderful thing and we don’t always have a chance in day-to-day life to indulge our fantasies. What better way than an art class!
