Angel Mailu

Angel Large11 years old, attending St. Andrew's Preparatory School, Turi. Angel was awarded a Beacon Scholarship in May 2016.

Moving to Turi from an 8:4:4 school is a big change for Angel. She has made a promising start and some good progress, despite finding some of the work challenging. She met her history target, achieving a high score in her end of year exam. She shows increasing confidence and participates well in class. Angel has worked hard to meet the challenges of new activities and has done well to learn the rules and basic skills of hockey and netball. She has also made good progress in the pool. She has started learning the cello. She is a member of the Junior Orchestra and an enthusiastic member of the Middle School Choir.

Angel is kind, keen and helpful. She is an enthusiastic member of the boarding house and throws herself into evening activities. She was appointed Dorm captain at the start of Term 3. She is well-liked by her peers. Angel achieved both her targets of helping the younger children in their dorm, especially tidying up before bedtime, and reading with the younger pupils in the morning.

Angel's parents are separated. Her mother runs a kindergarten in Nairobi and is highly committed to Angel's education.
