High School Week 10 Newsletter

Dear Parent/Guardian,

I am pleased to update you on the many interesting and exciting things that have been going on this week.

CIS Pre-inspection

As Braeside School we strive to improve our standards in every way so as to give quality education to our learners. In view of this, we received two guests this week from Council of International Schools for a pre inspection. They had meetings with various stakeholders in the school and got a chance to walk in to different classes to observe the teaching and learning. They commended the school for the good job we are doing. They noted that Braeside students are engaged in their own  learning and they praised us for the good job we do in community service. We will share more information when they publish the report.

We now go ahead and do a self-study for the next 18 months after which we will get a full inspection from CIS.

Rhino Cup Debate Challenge

‘The Key Aim of higher education is to prepare students for the workforce’ This is the motion that Braeside Students proposed as the Oshwal team opposed. The Braeside team did it again and presented convincing arguments and they emerged the winners.

We take this opportunity to congratulate the team which comprises of: Tsungai M, Samantha N, Benadette M and Moses O. A special mention goes to Benadette M who was recognised as the best speaker of the debate. We wish this team the best as they proceed to the semi-finals.
