Our Community

At Braeburn Kisumu we are proud of our cosmopolitan and diverse student and parent bodies.  We have over 10 nationalities and cultures represented, which makes for an eclectic and interesting group of people.

Our children learn to respect and appreciate the differences between our many cultures, traditions and beliefs through lessons and each other.

It follows that a lot of our parents come from all over the world; for some it is their first time in East Africa, and for many they have left behind family, friends and careers.  For all our parents, whether local or international, they are dealing with having the children out of the home, and this can also leave an emotional and social gap.  For this and numerous other reasons, Braeburn Kisumu has a strong community ethos, where we actively encourage our parents and guardians to become part of the Braeburn family, forging friendships that will last across the miles and years.

Events

Braeburn Kisumu regularly has events for the families of our community.  We celebrate Diwali and other traditional festivals, hold International / Cultural Days and Family Discos, to say nothing of various sporting and charity events throughout the year, and of course, the popular movie nights .

Communication

In addition to correspondence from school, we also have an events newsletter, which keeps you up to date with upcoming events and activities throughout the year.  We encourage you to  utilise the website for additional information about Braeburn Kisumu.

Moving to a new country, home and school can be a daunting exercise, but as part of the Braeburn community we are there to help you make the transition as pleasant and happy as possible, giving you platforms to make friends and make your integration into Kisumu life more complete.  After all, a happy family ensures we have happy children.  Welcome to the Braeburn Kisumu experience!
