Teaching at Busy Bee Primary, Nyali is learner centered. We help our children engage with the content they are learning through class discussions, research and practical work. We follow the CBC curriculum – Kenya’s national curriculum. We also have a strong reading culture. Our learners are encouraged to read extensively, both in English and Kiswahili. Each class has a library session as part of the time table. Children can also borrow books and return them when they have finished reading. Parents are also required to document the reading progress of their children, especially for those in the lower classes. The children who read the most books are rewarded.
Busy Bee Nyali is a technology driven institution. We offer computer classes for all our learners. We have dedicated teachers with sound knowledge and experience in IT. We also have a talented team in the IT department. It is common place to find teachers in our classrooms using the laptops and projectors to deliver their lessons. Our learners enjoy these classes and gain a deeper understanding of the content they are learning. We have also gone a step further and moved our academic meetings online. Every class teacher holds online academic briefs at scheduled times with parents. These briefs are in keeping the MOH guidelines limiting mass meetings and are also convenient for our parents.
Busy Bee is a school founded on Christian principles. We are well aware that true success can only come from a heart submitted to God. We have PPI sessions every week where we pray with the children and share from the Bible. Our teachers are committed to their individual walk with Christ. Muslim learners also meet with our Muslim teachers for prayer and teaching during the PPI sessions.
We have a robust Guidance and Counselling program at the Nyali school. Our learners have group and individual counselling sessions with our trained counsellors. This program has helped many of our children become confident, assertive and disciplined. They have learnt how to handle and solve problems whilst remaining committed to their studies.
All learners are required to carry a healthy snack for their break period. Lunch is provided by an outside caterer to learners in grade 3 – Std. 8, at an extra charge of Kshs. 6500 (grade 3 – 5) & Kshs. 7000 (Std. 6 -8) per term, paid directly to the caterer.
