Boston Girls High School participating in the semi finals match against Peter Kibukosya Girls School on 25th May,2019, despite the rains.A school is not only a Centre of Academics Excellence but also an avenue that provides children with an opportunity to identify their talents and develop them. At Boston, we take sports as one of our major co-curricular activities. Once we identify the talents among our children, we train, nurture and assist these children develop it. One major challenge we face in doing this is insufficient materials and equipment to make this dream become a reality. As in football, we do not have balls, football boots, stockings, jerseys, training kits, goal nets etc. This has hindered our training sessions and in some cases led to injuries and accidents as the children are forced to play barefoot or wear some rubber shoes bearing in mind the bad terrain of our playground. This term ,we had the opportunity to qualify and participate in Nairobi County Schools Sports Association.Despite the challenges, our girls and boys displayed extremely wonderful skills. During a tournament held a week ago, we managed to outshine a few schools .We did our best and proceeded to the quarter finals. The girls played better than the boys. They managed to secure a slot in the semi finals and final matches set to take place on 8th June,2019.Trainings are on high gear. We are optimistic that they will triumph against their opponents and emerge the winners thereafter be crowned 2019 Nairobi County Schools Football Champions.We kindly request for assistance to acquire the necessary sports equipment to help these young generation.We are in dire need of balls, football boots, stockings, jerseys, training kits, goal nets and many more. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
