Week 4 Newsletter

22nd September 2017

Our fourth week of the term has come to a successful end. The annual target of team work and term value of unity came alive when the whole community converged at the BKIS field for a well-organized family picnic last Saturday. Kudos to the ROBs group for bringing us together with fun filled activities and of course the delicious meals we enjoyed on that great day. In case you missed, below is just a glimpse of how the day was:


University fair

Our seniors received an invitation to attend university fair which was held at St Andrew’s Turi on Wednesday. They had an opportunity to interact with representatives from overseas universities. Below is a summary from the students:

On Wednesday, September 19th, 2017, Year 11 attended an educational fair titled UNISERV held at St. Andrews Turi. The journey there was smooth and we arrived in time for the exposition. We met other international students just as curious as we were about what the future holds. There were over twenty universities’ representatives who were at hand to give exploitation about what the universities have to offer. We were particularly impressed with the University of Tasmania on an island off the coast of Australia. We also attended a presentation on the Marshall University. One interesting fact we learned was that students are paid to learn in Hungarian universities one of which was Obuda University.

The information we got was relevant and was not a waste of time. At the end, the host was kind to offer us lunch as an appreciation for the dedication we had because we had covered a long distance to attend the exposition. We were very thankful for the gesture. After the sumptuous lunch where Denzel served two plates, we kicked off the journey back home at about 1 o’clock with full stomachs and arrived at school at about 4 o’clock after a long journey of sleeping and dreams. We appreciate BKIS for this opportunity and recommend this to be an annual event for BKIS.

 Braeburn Sports festival

Every year this event brings together close to one hundred students across Braeburn group of schools to participate in various sports. We are delighted to send 8 students to be part of this gathering. The team will leave on Thursday next week to be back on Sunday 1st October. Our team comprises of Loice , Merciline,Vanessa, Kristina, Walter, Denzel, Don and Jesse accompanied by Mr.Azenga and Ms.Mukui.We wish them well even as they get ready for the festival.

 Car park

Thank you all for those who have always endeavoured to utilize the parking slot with considerations. As a TEAM of BKIS community, may we always remember to park appropriately for the sake of accommodating everyone. And to this regard, angle parking is recommended.

As we earlier agreed, let us also avoid dropping off students right in front of the school gate there by causing unnecessary inconveniences to other road users.

Appreciation on Punctuality

We have noted with a lot of appreciation the high level responsibility displayed by our students as far as punctuality is concerned. As we discussed earlier, time keeping is a life skill that has to be instilled in our learners as they progress with their studies. Thank you parents and guardians for enabling us to realize this. As a united TEAM we are all happy with the achievement. Let us keep the good work.

Election date

With the announcement of new presidential repeat election date, many of you have been asking what next for the school in-terms half term dates. A clear position will be communicated as soon as a decision is made at group level. Kindly bear with us on this for now.

Mater Heart Run

As promised earlier, the students who raised ksh.5000 and above were to be acknowledged through a token of appreciation from the Mater hospital. In our today’s assembly we presented to this group of students their much awaited gifts .Congratulation to the team.
