Christmas Around the World

As it is tradition and as the Christmas season begins, Key Stage 1 had their Christmas production show for the parents on Tuesday.

Staying true to our Braeburn ethos in celebrating diversity, this year’s Key Stage 1 production was entitled ‘Christmas Around the World’, an original play by Mrs. Childs.

The children worked extremely hard to learn their lines and to put on a magical performance. Santa even participated!

Santa Claus was at Braeburn in search of answers……. She wanted to know what Christmas is like for children around the world. Where better to visit than Braeburn School! Well, the Key Stage 1 children did not disappoint! They took Santa to England, India, China and Kenya. For each country, they showcased what Christmas is like for the people that live there. They talked about the weather, food, dance, clothes and so much more!

Santa was very impressed by what she saw and learnt.  At the end of it all it was clear that Christmas is celebrated differently in different parts of the world, each country is special in its own unique way. In Santa’s own words…she couldn’t wait to visit them all before Christmas Day!

Congratulations to the Key Stage 1 children and teachers for the wonderful performance!

Merry Christmas!

Krismas Mubarak!

MSMUN Practice Debate

Last Saturday, our MSMUN delegates joined their peers from other schools to participate in the Middle School Model United Nations (MSMUN) Mock Debate at the French School.  

Not daunted by the morning drizzle and chill, they enthusiastically took up positions on the floor to express their views. Many of our delegates got their first opportunity to express themselves before a sizeable audience; they also practised catching the chair’s eye, while deciding on which parliamentary motion to use. The team work skills were enhanced as they had to work in their different teams to create resolutions which they then debated. At the end of the day they all walked out having sharpened their skills and making new friends.

Congratulations for a successful mock debate to Vineet, Conrad, Izzyan, Mudit, Nizar, Anushka, Jay, Erika and Vaibhavi. We wish them all the best as they prepare for the main conference next January where they will carry the flags of Cote D’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Vanuatu and Yemen.
