Living in the era of technology driven development BSK expects to pride itself with modern facilities including internet connectivity for student learning and faculty classroom instruction methodology to challenge our pupils to respond with resourcefulness and ingenuity and for hands on training. We expect to have a fully equipped and functioning school in the next five years as envisioned in our Strategic and Capital Development Plan.
Boarding As An Option
The value of a full boarding school lies in personal growth and development, independence, self reliance, the ability to relate to others and the forging of lifelong friendships for your son/daughter. Your child will reside and share space with others in a dorm separated in cubicles for four students equipped with a reading/study table complete with storage area for their little and favourite things. The cubicle will be your child’s immediate community in which she/he will sleep, do prep/homework, relax with friends and spend some amount of leisure time. The dorms have common rooms for supervised television viewing, video and recreational facilities. Within the dormitory space we have house-mothers who ensure all is well and monitors movement of children in and out of their dorm areas. A senior faculty lives within the dorm space and she/he is generally responsible for all aspects of the development of your child. Each House-master plays a critical role in the nurturing of the boys and girls assisted by the house-mothers, tutors and matron. As a school we appreciate the fact that your children spend three quarters of their time in school. We are therefore determined to make their environment inviting, comfortable and safe.
At BSK we see ourselves as one big family that eats together. Students, faculty and staff are expected to eat in the main dining hall in the student centre. Meals will be prepared by qualified staff that has previous experience and adequate institutional training to ensure food safety and timeliness under the supervision of a qualified chef. Input from our students is considered essential in the preparation of the school menus. We also believe that this will enhance and reinforce classroom teaching that translates to good healthy minds and bodies of our students and staff and well as encouraging participation in decision making.
BSK will engage the services of an experienced and qualified full time nursing sister to take charge of the health and wellbeing of the school community in the sick bay as a first line of response to emergencies and any other health related matter for your child.
Sports and Extracurricular Activities
The links between sport and character are fundamental to BSK’s concept of education. Your child will be encouraged to develop their sporting prowess and to enjoy and appreciate being a good sport through co-operation and camaraderie. Therefore outdoor education where learning is taken beyond the classroom walls is specifically geared to suit the learning and physical needs of each grade level. We expect to offer an array of sporting activities such as hockey, tennis basketball athletics etc.
We welcome you and your child to come and visit us. Applications are being processed for admission for class one through class six. Our school is handicap accessible, therefore if you have a child who needs to maneuver and navigate his/her way using a wheelchair they will be at home at BSK.
Why Focus on Talent and Gift Development?
Given all the talent and gifts that your child brings to BSK we commit to nurturing the different interests and talents for both the high achievers who need extra challenges for continued stimulation and pupils with different abilities and capabilities who will continually be guided to build self-esteem and confidence
Classroom Instructional Strategy and What Will Set Us Apart

In a small class of twenty five students, an inclusive classroom atmosphere and utilizing thematic subject approach to learning will enable individual aspirations to flourish for both independent thinking and teamwork driven instructional strategies to allow your child to develop an enquiry mind. Your child will also have the privilege of being voted and elected as a leader by their peers, something we consider to be part of civic education and leadership training skills
Academic Tutoring and Mentorship

Your child will be assigned an academic tutor who will monitor his/her progress and assist with any personal challenge that may arise.
