Braeside High Week 3 Updates

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We have come to the end of week 3 of this term. Time is moving so fast and we wish to remind Year 11, 12 and 13 parents that IGCSE/GCE exams are drawing closer by the day. Encourage the candidates to be focused.

 

UK Universities Fair

We successfully hosted a group of 49 UK Universities representatives in our school this week. The occasion provided a valuable   opportunity for our students to meet university representatives face to face and ask about careers they wish to study in the future. It was a fantastic opportunity and platform for our students and others from other international schools in Nairobi to consult and engage University representatives face to face, acquiring vast information in relations to study opportunities in the UK.

 

After School Pick ups

We would like to request all parents and guardians to ensure that any child who is not taking part in after school activities to be picked from school at 3:30p.m. We are offering two after school activities this term that includes sport training and clubs. The number of students remaining in school without activities is becoming a challenge and a concern. Please pick them early. For those using school transport and by any chance have no after school activity, will not be allowed to use the late bus. If your child is not picked from the carpark after 3:45pm, please collect them from the designated waiting rooms. Years 10 to 13 wait from the Upper School and Years 7 to 9 wait from the Middle School. Any student staying in school after the stated time must be in the study/waiting rooms.

 

Assessments

We have adopted a continuous assessment criteria that will ensure students are  given periodic assignments as the term progresses. The marks/grades scored from these assignments will form part of their midterm and end of term marks/grades.  We therefore urge every parent to ensure that children are provided with supportive conditions that will enable them complete academic tasks and assignments in time. 

 

Students Council Elections

The week has been busy with campaigns for the Executive positions of the Students’ Council. The candidates for various positions put up spirited campaigns as we carry out the elections on Friday, 22nd September 2017. Congratulations to those who have already been elected as Class Representatives through elections which were held last Monday. A comprehensive list will be out soon after the rest of the elections are held.

Looking forward for another fruitful week ahead!

 

Regards,

Mr. Wallen Nyamota
