Dear Parent/Guardian,

We have successfully come to the end of term two. I wish to take this opportunity to most sincerely thank you for your continued support to the school and the children.

The term has been full of activities and I want to thank all those children who took part in various activities. Our school continued to shine in the field of sports and fixtures. A big congratulations to the U13 boys football team who emerged as the champions at the Turi tournament. Congratulations to the Key Stage 3 students for a fantastic school production ‘Shrek’. A play well done! Not forgetting the U13 girls hockey players for winning the Brookhouse tournament.

IGCSE/A Level Exams

Our Year 11’s have begun their final IGCSE exams in some subjects like French, German, Art & Design, PE and I take this chance to wish them good luck. Year 12 and 13 join them from 2nd May 2019. Please let us join hands in wishing them good luck in their final exams.

Please take the weeks ahead to make sure that the candidates are preparing for their exams with less involving and demanding activities. 

Mathematics Challenge

Braeside High School students participated in the above tournament held at Nairobi Academy. A tough competition for the Mathematicians from our school. A big congratulations to our Braestars for emerging the overall winners at the challenge. Special mention to Merna E., Kartik T., Gurra E., and Zinan H., for the fantastic skills displayed up to winning the tournament.

Reports

You will be receiving your child’s end of term report in the course of the week from Monday, 8th April 2019. Please take time to discuss the report with your child, congratulate them on where they have excelled and encourage them on areas which require improvement.

Braeside App

We are aware that our School App is not currently supported by the new android phones. We are working on it and hope to have the issue resolved soon.

Book Scrutiny

Exercise books of students from Year 7 to 10 have been collected from students to enable the leadership team carry out scrutiny. This will enable the school do a check on the quality of students work and that work in the books is up to date.

Year 7 Community Service

On Wednesday, 3rd April 2019 the Year 7  students took part in their Community service outreach to Lavington Primary School. The students  donated new and old story books from the proceeds of book week and non uniform day. They also extended a hand of friendship through interaction and spending quality time. They had an interesting debate on what is  important between the destination and the journey. This is what one of the students had to say; ‘‘I have realized that it is important to think about somebody else other than myself.’’  Nicole S. Year 7S

Have a restful break and looking forward to welcoming all students back on 24th April 2019 for their term 3.

Regards,

Mr. Wallen Nyamota

Headteacher
