The Rising Phoenix Staff Club and Café

The Rising Phoenix Club and Café is a place to relax and unwind. It is located at one side of the campus, away from pupils and other school buildings and is used solely by staff (including their families) and occasionally by parents, during VISOs (visiting weekends).

During the day time, the café serves a selection of coffees, teas, milkshakes and sweet treats. It boasts its own Barista coffee machine using freshly ground coffee beans. The café is a family friendly space, with a children’s play area and surrounded by green fields. The view overlooking the Rift Valley makes it the perfect place to meet friends, colleagues or relax with a coffee and a good book.

In the evening, the space converts in to an adult only bar serving a wide choice of soft and alcoholic beverages, all available at almost cost price. All drinks are deducted from staff accounts at the end of the month (from your payslip). All staff contribute an annual membership fee of 1,500 KES (~£10), to pay bar staff, for satellite TV and improvements to the facilities.

The bar has a relaxed feel, with a fire, comfortable seating and a music system. There is an adjoining room with a pool table, darts board and  television.

The Club is open every Friday and Saturday night and often hosts events such as quiz nights and volleyball competitions. It can also be booked for individual events such as birthday parties, formal dinners, courses (such as the Marriage and Parenting Courses) and regularly by the Chaplaincy Team to hold worship and prayer sessions.
