Well done to all of our pupils who took LAMDA exams last term. The results were very impressive, with 18 pupils passing with MERIT, 23 pupils passing with a DISTINCTION, 1 Solo Gold Medal for Abdul and 1 Solo Silver Medal for Anna.
A special mention must also go to Abhinav for scoring a spectacular 100% in his exam!
A big thank you and congratulation to Ms Hughes.
''From July 10-16 I attended a leadership summit at Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts. It was arranged by Ambassador Leaders which is an organisation that strives to develop future leaders. There were various summits held throughout the summer at top universities such as Harvard, Yale, John Hopkins and UCLA. Approximately 500 people from the United States and all over the world attended the summit. Ranging from students who were entering Secondary school to students who had just graduated.
I am very glad I attended the summit because it made a big impact on my life and it changed my perspective on a lot of things. I learned of different ways I can impact my local community and it massively built up my confidence. My favourite part of the whole summit was not the activities themselves but meeting and getting to know new, incredible people that I will always remember and deeply hope to stay in contact with.''
Term has started well at BMIS - the new staff and new pupils are settling well and the normal routines of school life emerge from hibernation once more. Existing staff and pupils also dust off their pencil cases and school bags and haul themselves away from those long, lazy lie-ins. It’s tough! But, we are underway again and we are all energised and optimistic about the opportunities the term holds.
I will keep this brief. The main point I want to make is that Braeburn Mombasa is built on values that we really do believe in – they are not just words on paper that we pay lip service to. Providing pupils with a well-rounded experience, with equal emphasis on academics, arts, sports and community service, so that we develop self-assured individuals who are caring, creative, confident learners, curious, courteous and community-spirited is our goal, and we hope you recognise some of these aspects of the school during your time with us.
Each year, BMIS is contacted to submit names of students who display qualities of a good leader and who would benefit from attending the Ambassador Leaders conference at Harvard. This year, Greetje Kere, Y11 student in 17-18 and Anna Maina, current Y11 student, were able to travel to America and spend a week at Harvard University
BMIS had a succesful Beach Clean Up day where there collected 12 bags of plastic bags and other trash that were making the beach unpleasant to use.
