Mekaela Academies is proud to have one of its high school's i.e. Lulu Girls High School, represent Kenya in this international Project- "Connecting Youth".
The project digitally connects three classes from (3)three countries and is an example of the possibilities of international exchange through video conferences.
The aim is to arouse interest and understanding for other cultures and to introduce young people to English as a lively and useful language through concrete application situations. With competent technology partners, Zoom and Logitech support “Connecting Youth” and enable the students to get to know, understand and apply technical solutions.
On October 26th, 2021, the first of the (6) six digital meetings of three school classes from Germany, Denmark and Kenya took place. In addition to the students and teachers, representatives from Zoom and Logitech were also there.
Here is the Introductory video sent by students from Lulu Girls High school to their counterparts in Denmark and Germany.
Students this week have begun their end of term examinations, and will be closing school on 30th September, 2021.
We understand that during the exam week, the students usually feel stressed with their brains working on "over-drive". It's on this backdrop that we organized a Zumba dance session-at Manuel Alexander School- to have them dance-out the stress and rejuvenate before tackling the rest of their examinations.
They totally had fun and we wish them all the best in their examinations.

The students at Mekaela Weber Primary School, had been yearning for their turn to use the recently launched Mekaela Electronic Voting and Tallying system, and hence on 20th September, 2021 their wishes came true.
The system provided them with an opportunity to vote for their student leaders of choice in a digital fashion.
This was a great learning opportunity for the learners, parents and teachers who attended the function.
We believe that with this system, the learners will be able to appreciate the impact technology has in their lives now and in the future.
