Newsletter 7 - Term 2 2018-2019

Week 9 has been an exciting week in BKIS.  Actually, the excitement started last weekend when we had two well executed activities as per the term planner; Family picnic and Nyasa Swimming Gala. The aspects of team excellence were evident especially to have majority take part in both events. The summary below gives a glimpse of how the day was:

  • Swimming Gala

Over the weekend we sent BKIS swimmers to represent the school in the local Kenya Swimming Federation Championship Gala held at Aga Khan Primary Kisumu. We had swimmers ranging from under 7 to under 16 category taking part. Sunshine and Sahil being the youngest swimmers in the Gala.  Krit, Annika, Sanay, Arav, Dhara, Aminah, Safiya, Emilia and Cindy tasting the waters first in the hardest event of the Gala, Individual Medley.

We had stiff completion from 9 other schools present and emerged 2nd Place overall with most swimmers bagging position one, two and three. Well done to the swim team!

  • Family Picnic

It gets better each term! The activities were well planned by our ROBs committee led by Ms.Pavleen. A big thank you to all those parents who contributed to the bake sale, the table was filled with different items courtesy of the obvious excellent baking skills possessed by our mums. The students’ request of hiring two bouncing castles was honoured and it made a huge difference. It was also encouraging to have the presence of external facilitators to take care of most games which creatively involved parents, students and teachers.

The climax of the day was the whole community’s participation in the Zumba dance choreographed by Ms.Donia

Book Week

The love for books has been witnessed in BKIS this week. Involvement of everybody made a huge difference on how this year’s book week has been observed. We have had many parents involved in the reading to the students.

On Wednesday, the scavenger hunt using QR code readers was a blast! Students were excited to use their devices to read and answer questions based on books.

…..And of course dress up as a favourite character was the summary of the week!
