Sports and Swimming Action

2nd October 2021

From Mr Okwiri:

Our return to sports this year has been characterised by both determination and maximum effort across all classes.

Athletics has been our focus this term with emphasis on a gradual return to most events but more importantly, preparing our athletes to compete at the U9-U11 athletics meet at UWC.

Here are some of the highlights from P.E and flexible learning sessions.


From Mrs Harrison:

Meanwhile in the pool, three Braeburn students qualified to participate in The Tanzania National Swim Gala the weekend of September 25-26 in Dar Es Salaam: Baylor Harrison (year 7), Elsie Weston (year 6), and Harper Harrison (year 5).  These students represented Braeburn well, earning 45 points between the 3 of them, and gaining 9 personal best times.  Based on her performance at the gala, Harper has been invited to represent Tanzania at CANA IV, an international gala between several countries in East and Southern Africa.  Congratulations to all 3 of our swimmers on a job well done!

From Ms Lembeli:

At BISA the physical education and sports programs are essential to a well rounded education. The commitment to excel in the classroom is also evident on the playing field or pool. With various sports provided this term, the students are committed to training hard and giving their best effort to improve their skills. The main sports provided this term are Football, Basketball, Athletics and Swimming.

With friendly football and basketball competitions for both girls and boys and a swimming gala happening on the 29th of October, we have also extended our Saturday training to swimming, basketball, and football.

Swimming training is happening 10-11am, basketball 2-5pm and football 9am-1pm.

Our students have been able to participate in friendly sports fixtures with SCIS and UWC while observing COVID-19 guidelines. Students are happy to back on the sports field, competing against other schools after a long break.
