Over 60 enthusiastic children from Years 1 to 3 had a fantastic time developing their hockey skills on Saturday 19th January. They worked on their dribbling ability, striking, passing and control skills. They then put all of these together in match situations.
They were coached and supported by their class teachers, teaching assistants and the PE teachers, with lots of parents encouraging them from the sidelines.
We are already very much looking forward to our second clinic for the Year 1 - 3s later in the term.
Braeburn's policy of accelerated mathematics continues to impress. As students enter the secondary school, students have already been identified as possible accelerated learners. They are streamed into a Top Set and when they eventually begin their IGCSE syllabi, it is planned that they will complete the course at the end of year 10.
Those students who have managed to maintain high standards through this intense period are asked to apply for the early sitting of Mathematics in October prior to the final examinations in May. This allows them to commence the A level syllabus in year 11 and further, an option to do Further Mathematics in Year 13.
We are very happy to announce that ALL candidates this year scored an A* or A in this years early sitting of IGCSE Mathematics.

BRAEBURN OVERALL POSITION 2ND OUT OF 16 SCHOOLS
AN OUTSTANDING DISPLAY OF ATHLETICS
Kasarani once again provided the setting for another outstanding day of Athletics. Records and standards were once again raised in many areas and all teams that attended are thanked and appreciated for their efforts on the day. Braeburn team should once again be very proud of their overall performance. The under 19 Girls were champions for their age group again and the overall team performance was an excellent 2nd position to a well prepared Turi St Andrews.
What a rewarding week for the school. The entire cast and it's many assistants and helpers should be highly commended for three outstanding performances of "Jesus Christ Superstar" which commenced on Thursday in front of a schools audience and ended on Saturday Evening. Each performance steadily improved highlighting the casts great ability to take constructive feedback and self reflect leading to improved performance. The cast were rewarded with a fun party afterwards, which they deeply deserved.
