On Monday, BGE entered their first IAPS Maths challenge at Kenton College Preparatory School, taking two students to represent each year group:
- Year 3: Lance & Kikyo
- Year 4: Amar & Angela
- Year 5: Alexandru & Essek
- Year 6: Samarth & Ruby
- Year 7: Karim & Launeve
- Year 8: Adam & Lily
The pairs were given a series of challenges which included number work, reasoning and problem solving, working together to compete against many other teams. Our children performed magnificently well, finishing top in some of the rounds, with some pairs placing 3rd overall.
Kenyan IAPS Math Challenge
A proud day for BGE and its fine, young mathematicians!
The Nairobi Academy Junior Maths Challenge took place on the 6th of June at Nairobi Academy. There were about 20 schools participating and we are proud to say that BGE came in at 2nd place overall, only being beaten by Braeburn School by 1%.
Julia Cahill in Year 7 was 1st in the individual challenge and Daiyan Mustansir in Year 8 came 2nd. Adam Miller in Year 7 was 6th while Matthew Antonio, Year 8, finished in 4th.
The competition was tough and the four students did us proud. Next year we will bring the trophy back home!
Well done to all the students participating!

It didn’t stop with the first IBCP cohort. The class of 2018 outshines and has also recorded outstanding results. I am happy to announce that seven students will receive the prestigious Outstanding Pearson Learners Award 2019 on 9/02/2019 at the Intercontinental Hotel Nairobi. This award is given to students who have achieved an average of Distinction * in the BTEC course. While at it,95 percent of this IBCP class has joined world-class universities both locally and internationally, with 100 percent pass rate in their reflective Project, an academic paper which is rather a lengthy and a demanding assignment.
This particular group went over and beyond the CAS expectations to fundraise and construct a library which was donated in one of the public Primary schools in Narok county-a selfless act of kindness and service to the community!
The IBCP course has strongly emerged as a triumph with the provision of more options which has expanded and opened a wide range of subjects to choose from.
Well done class of 2018!
