Thank you DMI team for the computer and printer

This year’s Diabetes Management Information Walk was held on the 8th of July 2017 and was the 13th anniversary since the walk was launched. The main aim of the walk is to create awareness and raise money for children living with diabetes and require insulin.

The school has been participating in the walk every year for the last 6 years. Jonathan Gloag Academy has been ranked number 1 as the school with the highest contribution national wide each year for the last 6 years in a row. This year, the school contributed a total of 3,000,000 Ksh. We are immensely proud of our pupils, teachers, support staff and parents for their great efforts towards this worthy course. We would like to say our big thank you to the Managing Director of Diabetes Management Information -Eva Micheni and her team who donated to the school a computer and a printer in recognition for the support we have offered to DMI.

Our big congratulations go to Melvin Wanjohi of class 7R who has been the highest contributor for the last 5 years in a row. This year, Melvin raised a total 80,000 Ksh.

We were privileged to be joined by the school founder Dr. Ann Gloag during our 15th Annual Prize Giving Day in 2017 as the Chief guest.

Dr.Ann Gloag thanked the parents for the faith they have put in us to educate their children to the highest standards whilst also supporting the school's principle ethos which is to educate the less fortunate children in the society to achieve their dreams too.

❝ Every Single child in Kenya deserves the best education so thank you for supporting our work to make this happen to the children's at The Kenya Childrens Homes (KCH) and beyond.❞ --Dr. Ann Gloag. 2017

The founder also challenged parents to reconsider sending their class 5,6,7 or 8 children far away from home to boarding schools. She explains that children are the most valuable assets to parents therefore it is an enormous mistake to send them far away whilst they can join a school such as JGA where we continue to develop programmes for a whole rounded child. Enrolling your children at JGA, parents will be able to see their children every night therefore have a great measure where they are emotionally.

Sports Team
Sports Programme

As part of our ethos, We are developing our sports programme for a whole rounded child. In 2017 we felt the need to expand the sports programme therefore we brought in young professionals Alex, Austen, Scott, Mike and Sam from Scotland and the USA to help focus and develop the programme. It would be an exciting moment if one of our pupils won an Olympic gold medal and that it all started at JGA!!

Proposed Swimming Pool

We have exciting news that Dr. Ann Gloag has promised that her family is going to fully fund for the construction of the proposed swimming pool therefore parents will not be required to pay any additional school fees towards the project.
