Our Trip to Ngong Hills (by Murtaza Karimjee, Grade 4A)

05 February 2007
It was a great sunny day and our whole class was excited for the trip. For the first time we were going to climb hills as a class.

It took us an hour and a half to get there. After taking a snack, we were split into two groups; “Mountain survivors and African survivors”. Then we started climbing the hills. As we got nearer to the top, we saw animals, more hills and houses below the hill which looked tiny. We had stopped for a short break to have water and rest for a while when Aleena started screaming. She had been infested by Safari ants. Luckily, Mrs. Isige and Mrs. Dhall helped her get rid of them.

On getting to the top of the hill, we saw KTN boosters and wind vanes. The scenery from the top of the hill was amazing. We played a few games and ate lunch before embarking on our trip back. The climb down was much easier, a few of us tried running down.

We were very tired as we boarded the bus back to school. It was the best field trip we have had in grade four so far!
