WEST SIDE STORY EPIC

The highlight of the term to date was undoubtedly this year’s annual production, “West Side Story”, directed by our experienced drama teacher Eimear McEvoy Edwards. West Side Story is an American musical set in the mid 1950’s in which a modern day Romeo and Juliet are involved in New York street gangs. On the harsh streets of upper West Side, two gangs battle for control of the turf. The situation becomes complicated when a gang member falls in love with a rival sister. The Braeburn cast rehearsed tirelessly during, after school and at weekends under the committed direction of Mrs Eimear McEvoy Edwards and her support team. There were 3 main productions, all of which were incredibly entertaining and professional performances. The staff and the entire cast should be congratulated on their commitment to excellence in drama.

THE PASSION OF DEBATE

The end of term House debate highlighted how talented and knowledgeable our students are as the houses battled it out through constructive debate and concise argument. Talented public speaking was demonstrated and it is clear to me that we have students who have drive and ambition to succeed in life. All houses should be congratulated for their contribution to an excellent and entertaining debate and house Curie should be especially recognized for their nerves of steel for becoming the Debate champions.

A SPECIAL ENVIRONMENT- CULTURAL DAY

Last Saturday, Braeburn hosted yet
another successful and exciting ‘Cultural
Day’. Parents and students provided
cuisine from their own country for
the community to enjoy. The day
itself was centered around student and teacher
performances, where students from different
nationalities performed dance and song from their
own backgrounds. The day celebrated true diversity
at Braeburn and we all learned a little more about who
and where we are from.
Students appreciated each other and multicultural
unity could be beautifully witnessed. I am very
proud to be the Head Teacher of a school where
understanding, tolerance and respect underpins the
true spirit and ethos of our school and cultural day
captivates and reinforces that people from different
ethnic and national backgrounds can live and prosper
in harmony together. I truly praise our families and
students of Braeburn. We are all part of a very special
environment.
It should also be noted that through hard teamwork
on the day, a healthy sum of money was raised for
charity. There will be a full report regarding this
outcome in a future newsletter. Thank you to all
parents and students that supported on the day.
