Thirty students from Mwea Primary School, Mbeere South, could not conceal their excitement as they dipped and splashed in the warm therapeutic waters of KenGen’s Olkaria Geothermal Spa, Naivasha on February 10.

The students had earlier visited the Olkaria Geothermal Power plant on a look and learn tour where they were also treated to a sumptuous lunch.

The trip was part of their award in scooping the runner’s up position in the recently concluded phase I of the School’s Green Initiative Challenge, a 2-year schools’ greening competition that involved 81 schools from the semi arid areas of the counties of Kitui and Embu.
