FAYE'S DIARY

28 March - 11 April 2014

Faye's DiaryHere we are again at the end of yet another term. As ever, it has been busy and exciting, with our Braeburn children being a great asset to us all, getting involved in academics, sport, music and drama. So I reckon they deserve a good holiday, with lots of time to rest and recuperate – except for the exam students! Pole guys!!

For those of you who are not going away, I thought I would tell you about a few things that are going on in and around Nairobi. If you know of other activities in Nairobi, or even better, out of Nairobi, please let me know via email on: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . I will be keeping the Facebook page updated, so even though there won’t be any newsletters during the holidays, you can keep up-to-date on the Braeburn page at: www.facebook.com/BraeburnSchools.

So, let me tell you now about the events I do know about.

Thought for the Holiday

My philosophy is: If you can't have fun, there's no sense in doing it. – Paul Walker
