Week 2 Newsletter

We have come to a successful end of week two with the commencement of after school activities. Thank you to all students and parents who ensured the club form was handed in on time. Clubs have started and we already enjoyed debating, dancing, dodging, colouring, skating, calculating and many other things! Here is an impression of the Clubs so far;

World First Aid Day

Did you know that World First Aid day is celebrated   on the second Saturday of September each year? BKIS is cognisant of this and had it celebrated today as per our calendar. We had the privilege of getting the services of Red Cross Society to take us through what first aid is and the examples of basic skills during the assembly. As a community we were enlightened on how to offer first aid to:

  • A person with a fracture
  • A person who is nose bleeding
  • A person who is chocking


A big thank you to Red Cross team from Kisumu branch.

World Scholars

As promised last week, we took the opportunity to present beautiful certificates to our scholars who represented us at the World Scholars Cup –Global round which was held in Greece over the summer holiday.



  Tae Kwondo Grading

Our dedicated Taekwondo team of Dedan, Dhara, Krit and Sanay are doing their best as usual. Last term they took part in a grading exercise and it was an honour to present the certificates and a belt to them at the assembly.





The joy of receiving new students in BKIS has been real. We are happy to officially welcome Rowland, Precious, Conrad, Antoine, Newton and Evyavan as   new members of BKIS.
