  1. Behind every outstanding program at BHS there is an outstanding teacher. Kudos to Matt Lawrence for his commitment to this program and to his students.

  2. I love to watch movies and nowadays I am watching them at my home because I can’t go outside. Well, I was searching online for the Apple Kenya services because I am thinking of learning something interesting about mobiles.
