High School Week 4 Newsletter

Dear Parent/Guardian,

I hope this newsletter finds you well. I am proud of the hard work and dedication I see every day from our students and staff. The level of involvement is remarkable and it is truly rewarding to see the number of students involved in music, drama, clubs, sports as well as their classwork. Thank you for supporting your child’s involvement in learning.

25 Years Celebration

On Saturday, 28th September 2019, we celebrate our 25 Years Anniversary. This is a special day when we have a chance to toss on the beginnings of the School and it’s founders.

It is a day set aside to celebrate our history, revisit and reconnect with the continuing journey of the School. We celebrate that we are blessed with such beautiful surroundings and wonderful facilities. We celebrate the joy of learning as we develop in mind, body and spirit, and we celebrate the bond that we share with past and present members of the Braeside School Family.

We extend an invitation to parents (present and past), alumni and staff (present and past) to this auspicious occasion. Confirm your attendance through fahima@braeside.ac.ke.

Students Council

Our Student Council is a representative structure for students only, through which they can become involved in the affairs of the school, working in partnership with school management, staff and parents for the benefit of the school and it’s students. Each September, students vote to elect their representatives on the council for the coming year.

Please join me in congratulating the 2019/2020 students council executive committee duly elected. See attached.

President’s Award Scheme

The award is split into four sections: Volunteering, Physical, Skill and Expedition. Students learn to be self-reliant, independent, active and giving, and all thoroughly enjoy the experience. On Saturday, 14th September 2019, a group of 18 students undertook a one day expedition around Machakos. This was in preparation for their pre-bronze expedition later in the term. 

Cuisine Club

At cuisine club, students’ learn a variety of food from sweet to savoury and from hot to cold. It is a great way to try new food and test out their cooking skills. They can make a range of biscuits like chocolate chip cookies and shortbread. They also learn to prepare different things from different cultures like pizza and chicken nuggets. If you don’t really cook or help with cooking at home, it would be a  really nice surprise for your parents to see you independently cook something from scratch.

Lost Property

Please label all items of clothing/kit/books and pencil cases/trainers etc. to help reunite with the rightful owner should anything get lost in school.

Have a nice weekend.

Regards,

Mr. Joel Ndung’u
