High School Week 5 Newsletter

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We have come to the end of the first half of term three as indicated in the previously shared calendar of events. As such, I would like to inform you that we are breaking for the scheduled midterm break as from Monday, 27th May 2019 to Friday, 31st May 2019. 

IGCSE/GCE AS & A - Level Examinations

The IGCSE, AS & GCE A-level examination is going on well and we are continuously wishing our candidates the very best. I would therefore  like to appeal to parents whose children are through with examination in one subject or the other to start facilitating the return of the text books to the school library as soon as possible and minimize chances of losing or misplacing the books. 

We would also like request those students who are looking forward to continue with their next level of education (AS/A-level or BTEC Extended Diploma) at Braeside School to formally express their interest by filling the booking form. 

End of Year Examination

Year 7, 8 and 9 students are scheduled for a comprehensive end of year examination as from 17th June 2019 while Year 10 students will be starting their examinations on 12th June 2019. We have issued every student with the end of year examination timetable to enable proper planning and revision.

I would highly encourage parents to monitor closely the academic progress of their children using data on page 79, 111, and 139 of students’ diary, besides using the same information in setting achievable targets for end of year examination. As per the earlier communication, end of year examination will cover every concept/topics that were taught in the entire academic year. This requires early preparation and proper planning.

Entrepreneurship Day

On Wednesday, 22nd May 2019 we had the annual Braeside entrepreneurship day where students exhibited great business ideas and were able to work individually or as a group of registered companies that shared business ideas leading to massive sale of products and provision of services. 

Work Experience

Year 12 students’ work experience is scheduled for 17th June 2019 to 21st June 2019 while year 10 students will go for their work experience as from 24th June 2019 to 28th June 2019.  During this time, students will not attend school, but will instead be at their pre-arranged place of work. 

The process of providing and allocating placements to the students is a long one. We encourage parents/students to seek their own work experience placements in the first instance for full satisfaction. 

Wishing you a happy weekend and a restful midterm break! 

Regards,

Mr. Henry Oboo

Deputy Headteacher - Academics
