They have been undergoing a series of training sessions and once chosen, they will be             representing Kenya in Youth Olympic tournament in Algeria.

Taster Days

Year six students had 3 taster days in High School as part of our transition programme. From the change in lesson venue, new ties, interactive lessons, Lab experiments and introduction to new        subjects, to the much-anticipated school canteen experience, the taster days were crowned by an exhilarating trip to the safari walk.

 My experience was amazing and I’m really looking forward to  joining Middle School. The teachers are nice. The canteen was really fun and the high schoolers were supportive and nice.’ By Tumi

 ‘It was great, the teachers were supportive, kind and sweet and the canteen was fun. The students were so kind and helpful.’ By Sinai

 Entrepreneurship Day

On Wednesday this week we had the annual             Braeside entrepreneurship day where we witnessed great business minds as the students were able to work individually or come together, form and          register companies share business ideas, advertise and sell their products and services. Bravo to the young movers and shakers as they soar great heights in the business world!

 Trips

Next week Year 7 and 8 will be going for their annual pastoral trips. We wish them safe trip and a wonderful stay as they engage in team building and other activities that aim to aid in character building.
