1. Arts, Drama, and Music
Our students actively participate in the Kenya Drama and Music Festivals. We have over the years progressed through the County levels and had the chance to perform at the National level. The Arts, Drama, and Music Clubs perform in events both within and without the school. We endeavor to realize, develop and nurture the talents at St. Francis Moto Hope Center and Academy.

4. Scouting
The Kenya scouts association is a voluntary, non -political and educational movement for young people open to all without distinction of origin, race, gender, creed, or ethnic/tribal background. It is guided by the purpose, principles, and method as conceived by its founder Baden Powell.  At St. Francis Moto Hope Center and Academy, the Chipukizi scouts are organized in small groups of eight members called patrol: Twiga patrol for girl scouts and Gorilla patrol for boy scouts.

Each patrol has a patrol leader and assistant patrol leader. Our two patrols (Twiga and Gorilla) take part in the sub-county, County, and National level scout competitions every school year, winning yearly awards. We also participate in scout training camps on the History of scouting, First aid, Craftwork/ rope work, Drills, Leadership skills, and Camping skills among others every school term. It is every student's desire to be a scout at the Academy thanks to the holistic growth and education the Scouts Club provides!


5. Environmental Club
The scouts are also in charge of the environment within the Center. They are in charge of all Environmental conservation activities, key among them Tree planting. They view nature as a club where one can enjoy, a laboratory where one learns a lot of things and carry out experiments, and a temple where one feels closer to God and can worship Him freely. The whole school is also involved in termly tree planting activities: "Adopt a Tree".

6. “Once upon a time…” Public Speaking Competition.
At St. Francis Moto Hope Center and Academy, we believe that reading is essential for a child’s success. We have an adequately stocked ultramodern library that is bursting with exciting books for learning and entertainment. Our children enjoy their library/maktaba lessons and their own leisure reading. “Once upon a time…” is a monthly event that is chaperoned by Verarita Wananyanga the communications officer at Moto Hope Mission and the Academy's Resident Mentor. Students are tasked with reading at least two story books every week at the end of which they gather under a tree with Verarita to story tell and discuss the various titles they read in the month at Public Speaking Competitions.

Every speaker is awarded and the best five win the ultimate prize;  books that are not available at the Academy Library. The objective of this prompt is to inculcate, develop, nurture and grow a reading culture in our children. They are able to develop their language skills, boost their imagination and creativity as well as expose themselves to new things. In the silence of reading in the library, they challenge and feed their brains with knowledge and experiences from the various reading materials. The storytelling sessions sharpen their communication and public speaking skills as well as self-confidence.


7. Short Story Hours

Short Story Hours is part of our mentorship program that seeks to explore and grow the creativity of our young learners through writing. The students have regular sessions with running themes that guide the discussions and writing activities of the day. They hold very engaging discussions with the resident mentor and each participant writes their own short story at the end. These sessions go a long way in enhancing their composition/Insha writing as well as Language skills and self-expression!Writing Mentorship 1

8. Read with Us

"Read with us" Mentorship sessions are held in the Library outside the normal school routine for the learners to read widely on their own, supervised by the resident mentor. They are encouraged to read books outside the syllabus to gain exposure, and knowledge and entertain themselves to relax while growing and nurturing their reading culture. This goes hand in hand with the "Once Upon a time..." sessions.


9. Spiritual Formation, Guidance, and Counselling Department

We have a very vibrant department covering spiritual formation and counselling for our learners. We celebrate weekly Holy Mass and on every other special day at the Academy. Additionally, learners also attend Catechism classes as well as Pastoral Program Instruction (PPI) - a school-based and coordinated intervention to help individual learners improve their social, emotional, and behavioral skills.

The Spiritual Formation, Guidance, and Counseling Department together with our Mentorship Department ensure the psychological, mental, and emotional well-being of everyone at the center. Every Wednesday from 1:30 pm to 2: 00 pm, we conduct a general guidance lesson for all students. Should students have any issues they need to deal with at any point in their time in the school, they are free to see any of the guidance teachers or counsellors. Our mentorship sessions also work with this department by having visiting counsellors every month. Moreover, the SFGC department also works together with the boarding department to ensure all the boarding students are comfortable in school both at night and on weekends.
