Maths is such a big part of an adult's everyday life, so it is important that our children get the best foundation to build on as they move through their Primary School years.
​In Lower Primary, here are some things your child is likely to be doing.
On Friday, 21st November, Mrs Shah took 14 Year 10 Mathematics students to The Bank Of Baroda. They were warmly welcomed with biscuits, Juice and chocolates by the bank manager, Mr. Kumar. He briefed the students about the relationship between banking and mathematics. He also briefed them about business points of view. A Question & Answer session followed, where the students asked many questions and found out a huge amount about banking in both Tanzania and the world. Overall, it was an extremely productive trip and we thank all the staff at Bank of Baroda for hosting us.

On Friday, 14th November, 26 Primary Boys & Girls went to Braeburn for a Football tournament. The tournament was a fun warm up for the football season which is coming up in term 2 and no winner was announced. Mr. Claud's Grade 3 & 4s played a fantastic tournament and scored 8 goals in their three games.  Equally consistent were Mr. Stefan’s Grade 5 & 6 team, who went unbeaten through the tournament. Everybody had a great day out and we are all looking forward to the coming football season.

“Remember, remember the 5th November

Gunpowder, treason and plot

There is no reason why gunpowder, treason

Should ever be forgot.”

The tradition of lighting bonfires is well over 400 years old. King James 1st of England and, (as Mr Kennedy reminded us) of Scotland, decreed that all over the British Isles bonfires should be lit on 5th November to remind the people that he and whole of Parliament at Westminster were nearly blown up in 1605.
