KAISSO Under 19 Girls Hockey AT Hillcrest

A well balanced team took to the field last Saturday consisting of year 11, 12 and 13s. The girsl had high hopes of retaining their place as u19 champions. Captain Nzakwa led as usual by example and opposition found it very difficult to score against us. The team cruised through to the semi finals and won 2-0 against a solid St Christopher’s team. Hillcrest also suffered defeat in the group matches. Finally we faced a surprisingly strong Greensteds side and the game was an end to end spectacle. Both teams had their chances and finally, it was Greensteds who broke the deadlock. The team, although a little disappointed through their own high expectations must be congratulated once again for their commitment and ability to make finals against the best in Nairobi.

PROMISING IGCSE TRIAL EXAMINATION GRADES TO BUILD UPON

IGCSE Trial Examination results day attempted to reflect the real life experience with students receiving their true IGCSE examination grades as if it were August. I am very happy to say that the examination grades in the current year 11 showed great promise. I wish to thank and praise all Parents of year 11, who attended the parents evening. I personally witnessed many very positive and engaging discussions. This will undoubtedly assist your children to improve and better their results in the May/June final examinations.

ACCELERATED AND ADDITIONAL LEARNER SUCCESS

RESULTS

Mathematics                        9A* 6A 1B

Development Studies          3 A*

"It is with much pride and pleasure that I write to congratulate the Year 11 students who sat the November series IGCSE Examinations in Development Studies and Mathematics.  Early entry is by no means an easy choice. Whilst their peers were enjoying the long summer break and the start to the new academic year, these students were revising, completing past papers, and working with their teachers, before, during and after school in order to complete in some cases, a mere 9 months of teaching, courses that traditionally students complete in 2 full academic years. 

Hard work, dedication and resilience were the key characteristics embodied by all sixteen students and their exceptional results are a just reward.

I would also like to take this opportunity to publicly thank Mr Jonathon Bridger, Mr Ian Stamp and Mr Phil Treacher for the help, support, and dedication they showed in preparing the students so well in such a short period of time.  Once again, staff and students prove why Braeburn is such an exceptional school."
