Message from the Principal
Dear BFS Family,
Throughout the fourteen years since the dawn of Bright Future School, I have always felt that our work is most exciting around this period of the year. The fact that, we are on the brink of ending one year which brings a sense of achievement and moving on to another year which brings with it the anticipation and optimism to perform even better.
In the current academic year we have accomplished numerous goals that were set for Bright Future School: to mention a few, most of our students have shown excellent academic performance, teachers’ turnover has decreased in comparison to last year, our student discipline has kept its high standards, we have strengthened extracurricular activities immensely, our sports teams have participated in various competitions and have managed to be the basketball champions in the Bole sub-city tournaments, students have taken class trips and excursions to different destinations; we have participated in Bole Sub city Education Bureau’s Science Fair, question answer competitions and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) workshops for teachers which were organized by the Addis Ababa City Administration Education bureau. Moreover, 100% our grade 12 students of last year have entered university and we have also managed to send one of our top students, Yesubet Melese, to South Africa on scholarship in the AFRICAN LEADERSHIP ACADEMY. Yesubet is the second student to join ALA from our school. Currently we are working on sending more students to the ALA and THE EARTH UNIVERSITY in Costa Rica to attend a four years long undergraduate studies on a full scholarship.
In addition our school is currently in a cultural exchange program with a school called DEKALB ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY AND ENVIRONMENT from Atlanta, Georgia in the United States. Our students who are members of the program are preparing to travel to the US in August of this year. Bright Future School is also making headway in constructing its own building with complete facilities for which we need your full support and encouragement as we hope to complete at least the first two of the four phases of the construction by next year.
We look forward to top results from our students sitting for the national examinations of grades 8, 10 and 12 students whose number has doubled and tripled since our first batch many years ago.
Having realized all of the above, we look forward to the challenges and accomplishments of next year.
Although the amounts we pay for house rent, salaries and other expenses keep increasing, in the attempt of maintaining our mission of providing affordable quality education, we have decided to maintain the school fees for next year at the same level as current fees.
I look forward to yet another fruitful year for our children, for you and Bright Future School.
Thank you for being part of the Bright Future family.
