I strolled into the Art Room at the German School, Nairobi about two weeks ago to have a look at their Art Exhibition.  There were numerous paintings, drawings and art pieces on display.

Imagine my surprise when I walked into one of the rooms to find myself in front of number of art pieces involving chess!

I have enclosed photos from the exhibition to show you what the children did.  It is always a delight to see kids involved with art and then combined with chess!

The German School have a hugely popular multilingual kindergarten and schooling up to the Arbitur Level (A Levels).  The medium of instruction in the Primary & Secondary School is in German and a number of Kenyan children attend this school.  The school also has a scholarship program that takes children from non German backgrounds in grade 4 and successfully integrates them into the German School.
