14 students set off to Nairobi on the 26th of September to compete in the Braeburn Sports Festival which started the following day. These events happen every year where children from different Braeburn Schools mix into different teams, Amboseli (Orange), Tsavo (Green), Serengeti (Blue) and Maasai Mara (Red) and participate in different sporting activities which are done over two days.
Day one was Athletics in the morning and Netball in the afternoon, followed by a nice barbeque and a disco for the students to mix and mingle. The following day was short but with intense activities. Aussie Rules was a much loved game by all the teams and you could see the fun they were having on the field. CrossFit followed after which children were put through tough drills, but all made it through working in their teams. The last activity of the day was running a mile in groups of four holding a discuss ring.
In the end, the teams gave it their all, and we are thrilled to report that some of our BISA students came back with gold and silver medals.
