The mission of scouting is to contribute to the education of young people through value based on the scout promise and law. Most of its members are in the ‘Sungura’ whose promise states: I promise to do my best, To do my duty to God and to my country, To obey the Sungura scout Law, and To help somebody every day. It is a club which is entirely involved in producing a disciplined generation through various activities that instils discipline among the boys and girls.

The movement provides value addition to the formal education offered in our school.  Simply attending meetings and progressing from junior Chipukizi members to potentially rising to Mamba teaches team working and leadership skills. In addition all of the badge work done in meetings provides information and life skills in many non-academic subjects.

MM & MV shah academy scouts are occasionally involved in camping activities where awareness of healthy eating and the importance of exercising are stressed and followed to the latter. This is always done in an encouraging, non-judgemental way with recognition that not all members will want to partake in all activities.

The club meets on Wednesday every other week from 3:30pm to train and create awareness to its members of their daily requirements and expectations from their leaders as well as from the community.

Currently, the club prides itself with the new set of band composed of drums, keyboard, recorders and the cymbals. The arrival of these instruments brought motivation to the team as well as breaking the monotony of drills training and talks. Members can now learn how to play the instruments and this enhances development of skills and nurturing of talents. It is in the plan that soon, the cub will be involved in external competitions on the band playing as well as the showcase of skills and drills learnt. 

To wind up, the membership is open to all willing boys and girls.

Traditionally, chess and other board games were viewed as games for the lazy people as they were played while seated unlike the field and track events that involve running around. These board games require a sober mind for critical thinking and ability to make well calculated moves.

Learners should be given an opportunity to explore and exploit their God given talents. MM Shah and MV Shah Academy is alive to this fact and therefore found it necessary to start the chess club in the year 2016. The Club does not only engage in chess activities but also help learners acquire skills in Scrabble, monopoly, checkers, Ludo among other games.

Once the learners have acquired the basic skills in these games, they are advised to practice more by playing with their kith and kin at home or better still play on electronic devices like computers, tablets or even smart phones. There are many chess puzzles and tutorials online to help learners practice.

 At MM Shah and MV Shah Academy we have our club activities on Wednesdays where learners learn new skills and then practice using the skills acquired. After they have mastered enough skills they are then exposed to playing in tournaments both within and without the school. You can imagine the joy when they win medals and trophies in the tournaments.

Our school has participated in national youth chess competitions; first at Alliance Girls High School in 2017 and then in Karatina Nyeri in 2019. As a school we look forward to making chess every learner’s favorite sport.

This is a very vibrant club which is tuned to ensure that learners get it right at spellings of a variety of words and their appropriate pronunciation. It gives learners the confidence of speaking and reading English with ease. Across the year, members of the club get the opportunity to undergo trainings which see them compete with other learners across the country. This year we participated in The National Spelling Bee Competitions and did pretty well.

      While in school members of the club take part in reading several articles that shape their language further. Next year learners in the upper primary and middle primary will have a chance to register officially as members of the club. We are looking forward to a very successful club activities next year and beyond.

Home science club deals with promotion and preservation of general health matters such as body cleanliness,mental,dental and home hygiene.It equips learners with knowledge and skills which will be of great importance now and in future.The pupils are taught simple issues in cooking,general hygiene,sewing and embroidery among other things.The main purpose of this education is to enable our learners to fit in the modern society.

Red-cross club is the students’ wing of the red-cross society. It is a students’ movement organized within schools. Students who are actively involved are known as youth members. The teachers guiding the pupils are called patrons.

This club offers its members an opportunity to learn basic first aid skills. These skills help to reduce fatalities and enables the faster treatment of injuries. It also has an important role to play in providing staff and pupils with a sense of purpose and achievement giving them the skills that will potentially save lives. Having staff and students who are well equipped with first aid skill contributes to enhancing the safety of the school because many students experience accidents while they are at school. The accidents may lead to simple injuries serious wounds or fractures.

A trained person is better able to assess their surroundings. Knowledge of first aid promotes the sense of safety and wellbeing amongst people. Having an awareness and desire to be accident free keeps you more safe and reduces the number of casualties and accidents.

The aim of this club in our school is to enable our learners so that they may one day contribute in their own way, to the establishment of world peace and welfare of mankind. We also educate and empower the children in the spirit of red-cross through constructive trainings and effective leadership and provide opportunities for directing and harnessing their energy and idealism into worthwhile humanitarian activities.

There are seven fundamental principles of red-cross society. These are; Humanity, Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence, Voluntary service, Unity and Universality.

The seven fundamental principles provide an ethical, operational and institutional framework to the work of the red-cross movement.

Red-cross motto is to serve one another. They say with good health learning goes smoothly. The red-cross members always strive to ensure all casualties in school are taken care of before taken to the hospital. A school with no first aiders is indeed not a school.

In our school we have our clubs on every Wednesdays from 3pm to 4pm.During that day learners put on their club’s uniform (white  and red scarf) .We not only have internal activities but also participate in external activities such as charity walks e.g. mater heart run, coast hospice and diabetes walk. We also visit children orphanages and elderly homes.
