EYFS Annual Soccer Tournament

Every year our EYFS and PE department invite Early Years children from other schools to compete in our Soccer Tournament.

Friday 22nd February started with rain and clouds, but it soon brightened up and the sun shone brightly for the event! The children from Early Years in both Njiro and Kisongo campuses came together to form the BISA team. They competed admirably against schools like St Constantine's and ISMAC. Sadly for BISA, we did not come out on top overall, but that didn't dampen the spirits of our little soccer players!

Thanks to the PE department for such a fun event and a big thank you to all the parents who came along to cheer!

BISA Students impress at East Africa Model United Nations in Nairobi

Our students performed admirably at the 37th East African Model United Nations Conference hosted at the UNON building in Nairobi last week. Our delegates represented Belarus, Eritrea and Pakistan across four committees; Economic, Political, Human Rights and Special Summit. 
We had two resolutions pass to the conference; Sukirt Kaur’s resolution on the ‘resolving the current Anglophone crisis in western Cameroon’ and Nicole Kombe’s resolution on ‘educating displaced people around Lake Chad on using and managing solar energy’. Both delegates performed admirably and should be extremely proud of their performance. Likewise, Safari Mosha, Marvin Onwukwe and Sasha Pandit’s conduct in the Special Summit committee was exemplary; the former two being rewarded with the ‘best speaker award’ - a first for Braeburn Arusha. Every student, however, should be extremely proud by their conduct throughout the week. We’ll look forward to next year’s conference. - Mr Wheatley

Year 2 Taster Day

Year 2 had a fun-filled morning at a very special picnic last Wednesday morning when everyone got together at our Boarding House.

Making, sharing and eating a picnic went down a storm with all of Year 2 from both Kisongo and Njiro campuses. They had even more fun afterwards playing team-building games and even had a special visitor join them....a crafty chameleon.
The collaboration was all about getting to know each other in preparation for Year 3 and celebrating our first year of transition from Infant School to Primary.
We are all looking forward to the next one!

Primary Swim Gala

Second term is known as 'swim term' due to the perfect weather, and last Wednesday did not disappoint with the sunshine and blue skies ready for Swim Gala Day!

Our Primary students had an opportunity to display all they have been learning with Coach Anze with every child in the Primary competing in at least one event for their house team. From the youngest in the school up to Year 6, each child gave their all and showed fighting spirit in their races, cheered on by the classmates and house teams on the sidelines.

It was also an opportunity for our Junior Swim Team to compete in their home pool and show off their developing skills and talents. Coach Anze even got in the pool to race his team!

In the end, it was Kilimanjaro who came out on top for Primary. Congratulations!

A massive thank you to all the parents who came along to join the fun. We look forward to seeing you all again at our next event.
