In an exciting move, twenty-eight year-old Ndanu Brown has been appointed to a new post of Administrator with special responsibility for pupil admissions on site at the school.

She will be working with school director Josphat Shaduma and headteacher George Oluoch launching fresh initiatives, helping solve issues and increasing pupil numbers.

Most recently Ndanu has been involved in catering at the Masai Lodge Hotel overlooking the famed Nairobi National Park.

Aquinoe chair Jean Thompson says: “We’re delighted to welcome Ndanu to Aquinoe and are confident she will be successful.”
