Fond Farewells and Welcoming New Faces!

After a busy and fruitful year at BISA, the time has come to say goodbye to members of our teaching staff who are moving on to new chapters. This year, we are bidding a fond farewell to the following members of our team:

Mrs Elle Peterson, our much-loved Primary Music Teacher, is moving on this year andMr Edgar Weche, who has been a member of our Secondary Geography Team, is also bidding farewell to BISA this year. Our Primary 3 Teacher, Mrs Lea Kinzer, is leaving us to go to the UK to take up her Masters studies and Mr Asher Sijenyi, one of our longest serving members of the Secondary Team, is returning to teach in Kenya. Mrs June Odhiambo, our FS2 teacher in Early Years, is also heading to Kenya to teach in one of our sister schools there. Mrs Allison Wallace and Mr Rob Wallace will also be moving on to new adventures this year after long careers in teaching. Luckily for BISA, Mr Rob Wallace will be teaching Geography for one more term before leaving. Ms Lynsey Logan, a member of our Early Years and Primary Team, is also leaving us for pastures new this year as she heads to Vietnam.

The BISA Family will miss you all and we wish you all the best on all your new adventures!

With every goodbye, comes a hello! In Academic Year 2019/20, we will be welcoming five new members of staff to our school.
