Our last year’s candidate class did us proud. They posted excellent results of 89% of grades C-A*! This was as a result of dedication and commitment shown throughout the year. They had to work SMART and balance the many extra-curricular activities with the academic work. We are proud to have produced successful learners who enjoyed their school programmes. A big thank you to the teachers who worked tirelessly with the candidates in the coverage of the syllabus.


BKIS was not left behind in this popular and exciting international event that was held in Greece over the summer break. It was the first time for our students to take part in this and they did not disappoint as usual. Our team of 9 students and 2 teachers placed BKIS on the global map through remarkable participation. The junior and the senior teams had a wonderful opportunity to interact with other scholars from around the world. It is with pleasure that we proudly mention that our seniors qualified for the Tournament of Champions to be held at Yale University in USA from 9th-16th November 2017.Thank you our parents, for the sacrifice made to ensure our students reached this far.Preparations are underway for participation in tournament of champions.

Below is a summary from the students

During the World Scholars Cup we encountered a lot of adventures. On the first few days we were introduced to a lot of new people during the scavenger hunt. We were separated into different groups to find different items and do different activities. We made many friends within our groups. Our teams performed really well in the competitions. We all did an amazing job in winning some medals. For all our hard work we all got beautiful alpacas.

On the overall the senior team of Loice, Walter and Mercy made it to Yale.

Greece was a lot of fun. We learnt many things and met new people. Divani Caravel was a lovely hotel which we shared with BGE students. We made friends with them. We never wanted to leave. It was hot and the sun would set much later than it does in Kenya. All in all it was a great experience and we enjoyed the time with our friends.
