Packing for School

Moshi generally has a warm sunny climate, but it also suffers from a number of cold, wet days. For most of the year we tend to wear lightweight clothing, but students will be glad to have a sweatshirt or a warm jumper available. Most people wear jeans, or loose fitting pants and a T-shirt. Footwear tends to be training shoes or open sandals. From time to time we have special functions like the Sports Award Ceremony, Graduation, etc., so bring some formal clothes. Parents are requested to check that all clothing is appropriate. T-shirts with logos or slogans that might cause offence should not be brought to school and clothing or jewellery that in any way might be associated with the use of drugs and/or alcohol is strictly forbidden. Equipment for the outdoor pursuits programme can be borrowed from the school but it is helpful if you can bring your own. There should be no difficulty in buying toiletries in Moshi, but it is not always possible to get a wide choice of brands.
