Anti-Venom medicine has been delivered!

Last term’s fundraising efforts are bearing fruit and we have helped the Watamu Bio-Ken Snake Farm purchase and deliver supplies of anti-venom medicine to the Intensive Care Unit at Coast Provincial General Hospital in Mombasa.

Dr. Zaheer M.A. Bagha is the A&E Consultant Physician at the hospital – if you need to contact him ever, his number is 0722-865874.

Thank you to everyone who helped raise funds for this initiative.

Early Years- Teddy Bear Picnic

What an exciting week in EYFS. Our topic in all classes this week was Teddy Bears. We had a fun week with a variety of teddy bear activities including art painting and decorating them. We went for teddy walks, compared sizes of teddies, listened to and learnt teddy songs and stories.

At the end of the week we had a teddy bears picnic. The EYFS parents and children were involved in different activities in our Outdoor Area. Have a look at our photos of our amazing teddilicious week that we had!

Flexi-Boarding: An Option To Consider!

Taking a lot of little steps towards maturity is one of the intangibles of living in our boarding house. Students learn to get along with others because it is a community ‘a home away from home’. Students learn to be responsible for their actions. The life lessons learnt in our boarding house will lay a solid foundation for adulthood.

Boarding at Braeburn MIS develops life skills, teaching students to be tolerant and considerate team players. They learn responsibility for themselves, their study, their belongings and their relationships with others. The friendships created in our boarding environment are long standing. Pupils and staff are, in effect, a second family, where close and supportive relationships are the norm. Our pupils thrive within the routines set by the boarding house – they have designated times to study as a group or at times in their rooms. For more senior pupils this space and structure is enormously beneficial in focusing their efforts and helping them to reach their potential. For younger pupils the availability of staff to support and guide their homework is both reassuring and motivating.

Please contact the school on-enquiries@braeburnmombasa.co.ke, for more details about our Flexi- Boarding package.

MSMUN Conference - Nairobi

A delegation from Braeburn Mombasa International School, representing Mexico, has just returned from the long-established and prestigious MSMUN conference in Nairobi. We spent a whole term writing UN-style resolutions, lobbying and debating, and the team was very successful this year. The international nature of the conference matters – delegates certainly learn a lot from reading the meticulously researched background guides and from discussion in committee, but so much of the educational value of this conference comes from meeting hundreds of other young leaders from radically different backgrounds, from all over East Africa. We could not have been more excited to continue the unparalleled level of substantive excellence that EAMUN is renowned for at the 25th annual session.

At the end of the conference, a large number of delegates were given a Commended award after resolutions were read. Most impressively, our delegates Francois Kerampran, Abdul Bagha and Gathoni Darko debated theirs and many other resolutions with intellectual argumentation.

Congratulations to our delegates who clearly did an amazing job as their resolution passed!
