Braeburn Mombasa’s top female footballers travelled to the Capital last weekend to compete in a football tournament hosted by our friends at Braeburn Garden Estate. Placed in a group with Turi, ISK, BGE and Braeside, our team knew they would have to work hard and get a little bit of luck if we were to progress as one of the top 2 teams.
Well done to all of the girls for a great day of football. As always their behaviour and positive attitudes did the school proud.
What a brilliant week we had last week, in primary, starting on Monday with our ‘Healthy Me’ hat and headdress parade. The children all looked amazing with some very unique creations! Every day, we have started with our 1km run. It was fabulous seeing all the children, including the small ones, and parents and staff too, joining in this event.
On Wednesday afternoon, the children took part in a range of activities that were good for both the body and mind and there was a real buzz of energy all around the school!
Our Friday yoga session included the whole school, using our bodies and our minds, chilling out and stretching, feeling calm and relaxed.
Last week the Year 5 and 7 students had the opportunity to learn together in a joint lesson under a programme called vertical learning. The French and Kiswahili teachers had mixed ability grouping, then merged them to form larger groups comprising of both Kiswahili and French students. Within the groups, the year 5s and 7, taught each other the register used at the shops in buying and selling goods, both in Kiswahili and French. After learning the lines, the different groups did role plays. It was great to see teamwork where group members reminded each other forgotten phrases.
This year’s Art competition theme is a challenge for students to “Introduce Yourself”. Through a piece of art, students should convey who they are; this could be a self-portrait or a reflection on the things, feelings, and surroundings etc. that make all COBIS students so wonderfully unique.
There are five categories students can enter.

‘Welcome back’ EYFS to term 2. The children have been running around exploring the classrooms and outdoor areas again this week. It was lovely to see the smiles and hugs of the children reuniting with their friends after their holidays.
The hot weather has not stopped the children enjoying our outdoor area. There has been a line of children to climb up our new climbing area, and to go down the slide near the rabbit area. The bikes, laboratory, mud, sand and water areas have been busy with many children from different classes playing together.
