Braeside High Week 3 Updates

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I wish to commend our students and the teaching staff individually and  collectively, for the commitment to raising standards into teaching and learning. The standards in the classroom and beyond have improved considerably, as illustrated by the many and varied achievements of our students.

IGCSE/GCE AS /A Level  Examinations

The IGCSE and AS, A level examinations begun this week. We would like to wish all candidates every success in their examinations. The candidates already have their timetables and are encouraged to adhere to the examinations regulations and school expectations as shared during the Parents/Students Examination meetings.

Please take note that students will be required to return school textbooks as soon as they clear with the last paper of each subject. This makes clearing process easier to avoid any hitches when the student comes for their results in August.

Exiting School at the end of an Exam

Students are allowed to go home after their exams as long as the key times have passed. We would wish to advise that Parents/Guardians give a note in the morning to be dropped off at the reception authorising such exits. This will reduce the need to make repeated phone calls seeking for such authorisation.

Attendance and Punctuality

I am pleased to report that our whole school attendance remains above our target of 97% - thank you. There has also been an improvement in our punctuality. I urge parents to ensure that they are punctual when dropping their children to school and when collecting them at the end of the school day. 

Notice of school events will continue to be sent via newsletters, emails or sms. We will also ensure that the website is updated regularly and give as much notice as possible for events;

Changes to School Uniform Expectations from September 2018

We would like to notify parents of some changes to our uniform policy for the next academic year.

Essentially, we will be changing the expectations so that students will need to wear a specific style and fabric of garment purchased directly from our approved uniform suppliers. Information and images of the new items will be availed within the next two weeks on the school’s website and newsletter.

The changes will come into effect from the first day of next term in August 2018. The items of uniform that will change include the trouser, skirt, shirt/ blouse, sweater and blazer. With that in mind, our uniform suppliers ‘Animet’ and ‘Image First’, will be stocking the new-style uniform from June 2018 onwards.

We believe uniform is very important in terms of the message it sends about the respect students have for their school.

Wishing you a good weekend ahead.

Regards,

Mr. Bernard Wandabwa/Mr. Joel Ndung’u

Assessment Coordinator/Deputy Headteacher (Pastoral)
