Global Hand Washing Day

October 15 was Global Hand Washing Day and it brought much excitement to our students at Galilee Primary and Waddington High Schools! 

They had some special visitors including Miss World Kenya Chapter, the Nairobi city council town clerk, the administration officials and many other celebrities. Safeguard soap manufacturers sponsored the event and donated 2000 bars of bathing soap to the school for the students.  

Miss World Kenya demonstrates hand washing...
 ...and then helps a child wash her hands.
 Everyone got in on the joy of clean hands!
  Our students entertained their guests by providing music from the girls in the choir and dancers.

 Our WHS students enjoyed meeting Miss World Kenya!

We are always thrilled when something positive happens to enhance our students understanding of health principles.  What a fantastic way for our children to learn the value of hand washing!
