Grace Muema

Grace Large

9 years old, attending Peponi House Preparatory School, Nairobi. Grace was awarded a Beacon Scholarship in May 2014.

Grace has had a good year in the classroom, especially in Maths, French and Swahili. She has participated with enthusiasm in drama, dance and music, has made great progress in swimming, from a ‘standing start’, and has used her listening skills effectively to learn the rules of rounders, hockey and netball; she has played in netball matches against other schools, and for her house. She communicates well with her peers outside the classroom, organising sponsorship for the Hospice Walk and raising KSH 15,000. She has also enjoyed working with KSPCA.

At Leadership Workshops she has been engaged, and has made active contributions to the team, and to debriefs.

Grace's Summer 2016 Beacon Citizenship Project was about 'Elephant Conservation'. View a video of her presentation:
