As a Round Square School, we are committed to protecting and nurturing the beautiful environment around us. We have a number of student-led environmental groups who work with the Estate Team to manage and address environmental issues. In the past they have looked at: recycling, education on biodiversity, sustainable sources of energy and indigenous forests. For more information please see our Environmental Policy.

Security and Visitors

Protected by an electric fence which surrounds the site, a well-trained team of security staff and dogs manage the main gate and patrol the site at night.
This security is in place to ensure the safety of students, staff and visiting parents. We would appreciate your support in complying with our security measures. These include security checks at the gate and registration of your staff who might visit the site. Please notify us 72 hrs in advance of their arrival by emailing estate@turmail.co.ke. (We reserve the right to refuse entry without prior authorisation).
Pupils are also required to provide written approval to exit the School, for their own protection.
For safety reasons, within the School grounds there is a strict speed limit of 15km/hr and clearly labelled designated parking areas.
Parents are invited to the School on six weekends each year, called VISO weekends. These are important and very enjoyable times for students and parents alike. Please see the Term dates and VISOs page for more information and future dates.

Transport and Airstrip

Various arrangements are in place for transport at the end of terms, including buses to Nairobi and Kampala. Some parents arrange drivers to collect their children or transportation via plane or helicopter using our private airstrip, please see details below.
The School’s airstrip was officially opened in June 2008. The GPS Co-ordinates are: LAT S 0 16′ 27″ LONG E35 46′ 21″ Please contact the School’s Facility Manager (facilitymanager@turimail.co.ke) to arrange incoming flights.
