‘I am Baraka Salat. I wanted to become a prefect because I am a good leader and I correct people when they are wrong. I also congratulate them when they do well. I am bold and confident. I am happy to lead my fellow pupils.’

‘My name is Alma and I am in 5R. I will be a good example to my classmates and I will respect and treat everyone equally. I will be loyal to all meetings and I won’t miss any. Everyone is a star, follow your dreams.’

‘I will help the school to be a better place by;

  • Standing up for the younger children.
  • Respecting teachers, parents and students.
  • I will be a good example and remain open minded.’ Hussein Firdousi

Dear Parents, Guardians and Friends of Braeside School

Welcome Back!

It is such a delight to welcome Braestars back for the 2019-2020 Academic year. We have an exciting year ahead and look forward to working alongside each Braestar to enable their progress in various aspects of their learning journey.

A special welcome to the new families who have joined Braeside Family. ‘Karibuni Sana!

2019-2020 Annual Focus

GRIT will be our focus for this academic year.

GRIT-The 4 Ds

Give it your all (Dedication)

Redo if necessary (Double checking)

Ignore giving up (Determination)

Take time to do it right (Diligence)

This is inspired by Angela Duckworth’s research and book that offers insights to parents and teachers on how to support children to thrive in their learning journey.

She is currently a professor of psychology at the University Of Pennsylvania. You can garner more information about her on https://angeladuckworth.com/

Parents’ Meetings

This year’s parents’ meetings are specially designed to enhance the home-school partnership so as to support Braestars to make the most of their talents in school and home. We anticipate your presence and contribution during the sessions.

Prefects’ Selection

Fifty-five Year 5-6 Braestars have submitted their applications for prefects’ positions. A commendation to each of them for the willingness to serve their fellow Braestars. They are true Confident Individuals!

We shall finalise with the ratification process in the coming week.

I am excited to see what the year holds for us all.

Wishing you a great weekend!
