Mwenda’s Blog



I am now on holidays. I have planned to review all that I learned this year so that I won’t have any trouble next year when I will be in Form Two (grade 9); this is when I will sit for national exams.

I am now at the guest house in Moshi town with my friends from the orphanage updating my Blog. I came from my village this morning to be here with everyone else and I will leave later in the evening for my village where I will get to see and spend time with my relatives.

I hope you are all having a wonderful moment with your families. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!



Hi every one

I am in holiday for 10. In this holiday I have planed to do some revision and                          help with some in Himo.

am still working hard to improve in math and I hope when I go back to school                       I will have learned a lot.

Also for the rest of the subjects which I am doing well I am revising so thatdI may do           the best.


Hi everyone,

I am still on holiday and I have started tuition classes. I go to tuition (tutoring) for math and physics class. The reason for going for math and physics tuition class is that I have not being doing very well in those subjects.

This holiday I also got a chance to visit a ranch where I got to see different types of animals. The name of the ranch is Ndaraqwai. The name of the ranch was obtained from the type of tree which is found in that ranch. The tree is used for making furniture.

This weekend I learned about hip pop music, and I learned how to make music without using music instruments. I learned how to use my mouth to make music bits, it was real fun. Also I learned how to write poems.

I am in a long holiday from 5/31/2014 to 7/12/2014. I am doing well in school.Yesterday I had a chance to  visit a soda industry which is not too far from school. It was so good to see how soda is made. What I learned from the trip is that all food and drink industries are very accurate.May 31st 2014

Thank you! Happy Easter! 4/14/14 My favorite day of the week is Tuesday because we start with biology class and geography. I like biology most because most of our lessons we do in the laboratory where we do them practically. I am doing the best in history because it is easy to remember and its interesting also because we have a very good history teacher. I like playing football and basketball but I do not play basketball a lot. I like to spend time with my new friends, but since we have not yet known each other long, I spend most of my time with my friends who we had already known each other before we went to the new school. Typically we have the following food at school, some you may have not heard of them but they are very common here in our country. Some of the food are “Ugali” which is eaten with beans, “Makande” which is maize cooked together with beans and we also have rice which is very common. My favorite is Ugali . Our daily schedule in school starts in the morning. We wake up early in the morning and brush our teeth and wear the school uniform. Then we do some cleaning and have our breakfast. After the breakfast we start our lessons. The lessons start at 8:00 a.m and end at 3:30 p.m. After the lessons we have sports or we wash our clothes. Then we have dinner and after dinner we pray and go for evening lessons which starts from 7 :00 pm and ends at 8:00 pm . Then we go to sleep. 11/26/2013 Today I am in Moshi Town ,working on my Blog page I have graduated from primary school. I got accepted into Tengeru Boy’s School, which I am really excited about. It is the same school that Edward attends. Revo and Deo also graduated from the school.  The school will start on January of 2014 . Last week on Saturday I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, which is the highest mountain in Africa. I did a one day climb, and I really liked it. I wish I could get another chance to  climb the whole mountain. Me at the Gate of Mt. Kilimanjaro Just recently I got the chance to learn how to make a life plan. Life Plan is a journey of choices, decisions and consequences. So  I got the chance to understand my values, and clearly highlight my goals and also how to pursue them. Let me share with you my top two values and why I value them. a) Love – I believe love is important in this world and mostly love is very important to me, and to receive love I have to show love. b) Respect – I like respecting both young and old, through this I make lots of friends and receive lots of Love. At the Graduation. Other  things that I like to do are, watching the moon and stars at night, reading stories about people and how they succeed in their lives. I had so much fun working on painting the library at my primary school last month with the Salesforce group of volunteers, I hope to see them again next year so we can finish up the library. image-5 I am having a great day in town today with Revo, Deo, Edward and Mama Theresa. How was your day today? Tell me what you have been up to. Check out my exam results below, for terms one and two from school for the year 2013. Results for term three will come out soon.
