It is important to stress that everyone is seeing changes in their daily lives and adjusting to a new reality and struggling to find a new balance, as this global pandemic has changed the way each and every one of us lives day to day. We will continue to work together as we plan for multiple possibilities ahead.
We are in this Together:
We have been in uncharted territory this year and we have made it this far by collaborating together as a School Family. The reality we are in right now is a global issue therefore we are not alone in this.
Our 6 Core Values are Honour, Adventure, Fortitude, Compassion, Mastery and Leadership. Fortitude is one Core Value we need to keep in mind during this uncertain period. At Rusinga Schools, we provide an encouraging environment to develop the Fortitude necessary to complete this life journey productively, producing life-long learners who are independent thinkers, level-headed leaders, confident and good communicators, open-minded, balanced in thought, reflective, risk takers and democratic. This season will pass and our students shall indeed succeed and be the stronger for it.
We continue to encourage all to remain calm, exercise hygiene and preventative measures against COVID-19.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
