Survivors of a crash in Kenya that killed three Kiwis gathered this morning for a vigil at Bethlehem College this morning to remember those that didn't make it back.

Doctor Brian Johnston, his wife Grace, 19-year-old Caitlin Dickson and Kenyan bus driver Christopher Mmata were killed in the crash when their mini-van rolled into a ditch last week.

The three were among seven adults and a dozen Bethlehem College students working at the Ark Quest Academy in the village of Mahanga.

The vigil provided a chance for students to reunite with their friends returning home from Kenya.

Those involved in the crash will speak to media later today.
