Vutakaka School field trip!

The Class 7 and 8 students at Vutakaka Junior School took a trip to the nearby Kilifi Plantation, just across the creek from Takaungu village.  The plantation produces Kilifi Gold Dairy products and also grows sisal, an agave plant that is used to make rope.

The students took the small Takaungu ferry (seen above) across the creek and saw the milking process, the dairy production, the sisal harvesting, and the rope making.  They were given a talk by knowledgeable staff in each department and learned a lot about the agriculture business.

Many thanks to Kilifi Plantation for hosting our students!  The teacher's are busy planning the next outing for Class 6, 7, and 8 to the Mombasa port and the railroad station.  Classes 4 and 5 will visit the Mida Creek and bird watching boardwalk next month as well.
