Newsletter 2 - Term 3 2018-2019

The second week has come to a successful end with the students displaying great understanding of the term values of Respect and Thoughtfulness. This was emphasized by the year 2 students in their assembly presentation as well. It was amazing to have the young ones remind the audience of the need to:

  • Show respect to everyone
  • Always use the magic words of “Thank You and Welcome”.
  • Be thoughtful of others feelings

Our seniors in year 10 also had a great assembly for the High School audience in which they discussed on how the aspects of Respect and Thoughtfulness lead to Happiness.

 

 In general, there was a consensus on the need for consideration of the important values which define an individual. As a school, the annual target of Team Excellence can only be achieved when it is supported by the said values.

Swim Team

The annual Inter-Braeburn Swimming Gala is taking place tomorrow at Braeside School Nairobi. Our BKIS team comprising of 22 swimmers are looking forward to a great performance tomorrow. It is our hope that with the practice and lessons offered, they are going to compete fairly well with their peers in Nairobi. In our assembly today, we wished the team well and assured them of our support. A big thank you to the parents we have travelled all the way to offer the much needed support. It is another great opportunity for exposure to competitive gala.
