The U11 and the U13 children had great fun during their inter-house hockey competition, held on the field this week to conclude another exciting hockey season. Some friendly competition commenced showcasing some excellent hockey. If they weren’t playing they were cheering on the side of the field, with some friendly banter being passed among players and spectators. Congratulations to the winning houses:
U11 Girls - Ndovu, U11 Boys - Kifaru, U13 Girls - Kifaru, U13 Boys - Kifaru
Our U9s play on Monday and the staff and students look forward to the upcoming staff verse U13 students match in the last week of term.
The IAPS Swimming Gala saw some very strong performances by children from all the participating schools. Braeburn swimmers put in great performances and Risha (pictured above) set a new meet record for the U13 Individual Medley. Overall we finished 4th, coming away with a number of medals.
This year's Young Programmers competition hosted by Peponi House School went really well. Our students were delighted to take part in it. The event took the format of a forum and was a day that the students could interact with each other and learn in a fun manner. It showcased some new skills which the students enjoyed learning, such as using a logical device programming challenge using Arduinos and actual physical/mechanical outcomes.
All students who participated were awarded a participation certificate and our pupils also managed to scoop four medals in different categories:
Yanet - was the U11 winner in the systems design using Arduinos category.
Abdul - was 1st runner up in both the U11 Scratch programming challenge and the 3D design category using sketch up software.
Kiah - was the 1st runner up in the U13 graphic design gallery for futuristic devices.
The Year 2 children had a lovely time on their visit to Brown's Cheeses. They learnt how cheese is made from start to finish, made their own cheese and saw fruits and vegetables growing on the farm. They were also able to see different farm animals, cows, sheep, rabbits, chickens and pigs.
In addition, Mr. John challenged them to fill a bucket with milk by milking the cow! Sadly, we did not get much out, but we had lots of fun! Finally, all the children got to make their own pizza from start to finish! They ate their pizza (after it was cooked) and also got an ice cream treat.
I am very glad to inform you that our school won 44 medals and 2 trophies. Our students really worked very hard and they were rewarded.
