A small BISA team participated at Kenyan National Qualifying gala from 11th to 14th April 2019 at Kasarani Aquatic Stadium in Nairobi. This was a very competitive gala with a large number of quality swimmers from Kenya and other countries. Our swimmers arrived to Nairobi a few days before the gala to acclimatize to the Olympic size pool. It was a very tough gala but our swimmers swam very well.
The four of them achieved the following results:
Ophelie König: 10th place in 200 breaststroke, 14th place in 100 breaststroke, 16th place in 50 breaststroke, 37th place in 50 freestyle and 35th place in 200 IM.
She swam her best times in all her races. Well done, Ophelie!
Niamh Baker: 1st place in 200 backstroke, 2nd place in 100 backstroke, 3rd place in 50 backstroke, 5th place in 200 freestyle, 7th place in 100 freestyle, 8th place in 50 butterfly, 10th place in 200IM and 12th place in 50 freestyle. Fantastic results, Niamh!
Antonio Smit: 3rd place in 800 freestyle, 5th place in 1500 freestyle, 8th place in 400 freestyle, 15th place in 50 backstroke, 17th place in 200 freestyle and 59th place in 200 IM.
Antonio made massive improvements in all of his times at this gala. Great job!

Our U9 hockey team took on other international schools in the NTAA hockey tournament last Tuesday and brought home the trophy!
In a hotly contested tournament, our young hockey players fought hard showing determination and focus throughout. Their team spirit, sportsmanship and behaviour was impeccable and all their efforts paid off as they won game after game to secure the trophy.
A special congratulation goes to Yuvraj who was awarded player of the tournament as well!
Swim term is in full flow and our fantastic Junior and Senior swim teams took on the St Constantine's International School Swim Gala last weekend.
BISA swim team members train before school and at lunchtimes throughout the week and all their hours of training were put on display at the gala. Many BISA students won medals or placed within the top three and, with team spirits high, our well-established Senior team took second place overall.
With many of the Junior team building in their skills and confidence, Coach Anze is excited to see what is to come in the future for these talented young swimmers!
On the warm Friday morning of 23rd November 2018, a team of twenty-four students from Braeburn International School
Arusha took part in the annual Braeburn Athletics Meet held at the Kasarani Stadium- ‘Home of Heroes’- in Nairobi, Kenya.
With a total of 14 schools taking part, it was a great opportunity for our students to experience an international stadium atmosphere.
Our athletes battled it out and gave it their all in such a tight competition. We are proud to say we returned with six
medals; Joshua- Gold (100m hurdles) and Bronze (100m), Angel- Gold (High Jump), Clinton- Silver (1500m), Tania-
Bronze (800m) and Upendo- Bronze (Long Jump). In addition, there were other remarkable performances with Gabriella, Joshua, Rhennystella and Yuri all respectively making it to the 200m finals in their categories. As well as Sherlyne and Malik, both 100m finalists.
This was a successful last Athletics Meet for the 2018 season. An enormous thank you to all our coaches who trained us during PE lessons as well as after school sessions. Furthermore, thank you to Mr Lake, Mr Masudi, Ms Ngave and our bus driver Mustafa who accompanied us all the way to Nairobi. - Angel Karegyesa
A MASSIVE WELL DONE AND CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OUR ATHLETES!!!
Our Primary athletes came out on top at the Primary Inter-Schools Athletics meet held at ISMAC last Friday, finishing in first place overall!
Competing in multiple events, our students brought home a stack of medals, certificates and even a few record-breaking performances! With many of the young athletes competing for the first time in this type of competition, not to mention competing in the hot November sun that Arusha has been experiencing, they were a credit to BISA both in their athletic performances and in their display of excellent sportsmanship and excellent attitude. We are incredibly proud of our young athletes and can't wait to see what you all accomplish next!
