We look forward to offering the same high standards at reasonable fees, that has created a lot of goodwill for the ARKIS
brand," he said.
Fundraising efforts for the Kenyan school children was led by ARKIS pupils and the school community and a series of activities organised to raise money for such programmes in recent years.
ARKIS pupils visited the school's main dormitory where they donated mattresses to the children.
As well as engaging in cultural activities with the Kenyan pupils, such as friendly football games, attending classes and dance performances, some ARKIS students visited an orphanage, home to more than 100 children.
Money raised by ARKIS fundraising events was donated to the orphanage to better equip the building and provide food for orphans.
It follows similar visits by ARKIS students to Tanzania, Zanzibar and Vietnam.
As well as helping children in Kenya, it is hoped both sets of students will learn from each other - with ARKIS pupils attending classes at the school and a football match being organised between teams from ARKIS and the Kenyan school.
ARKIS students will also provide food for all 600 students at the Kenyan school.
On their return, the ARKIS students will put together a photo exhibition of their experiences to raise awareness about poverty and the importance of cultural exchange.
Dr Al Alawi and ARKIS vice-principal Nadia Dawood presented certificates and trophies to the winners.
ARKIS principal Aisha Janahi said the school would continue to hold the event every year.
