Keke's Story

Keke started school with us in September 2014. She had never been taught in English, she had no experience of living abroad.

She had very low levels of English. She found listening and speaking slightly easier than reading and writing. Her native script, Chinese, was very different to our Roman script, there was certainly an extra barrier to overcome.

Keke received support from the EAL teacher in Biology, Chemistry and Geography in terms 1 and 2, and then in Physics in terms 2 and 3. She also attended homework club with the EAL teacher 2 lunchtimes per week to receive support with her curriculum subjects and assignments. Teachers differentiated for her in lessons to allow her to access the curriculum.

Keke has grown in confidence, integrated well, and she is now achieving very good grades after only having been here for one academic year. In most subjects she is on the same level as those students who are native or have fluent English.

Keke has contributed to art exhibitions outside of school, producing excellent pieces of artwork. She is a keen drummer and has participated in musical performances in front of the whole school and parents.  On Sports Day she was one of the best Year 7 athletes.

She is certainly a success story of the British International School of Bratislava.
