On Thursday 28th April as early as 6.30am the school was buzzing with more traffic as the new lot of Grade 1s arrived with their parents.
Lots of excitement gripped the entrance hall as parents with their sons took photos of the memorable morning.

We warmly welcome the Grade 1 families and wish the young pupils a fruitful school life!

On Saturday 23rd April a group of young lads were ushered into the school for their orientation day.

This was their first day of school. They were introduced to their teachers and shown around the school by the current captains then. On Tuesday 26th April they arrived to start class.

We wish the young students the best of years as they journey their secondary school life in Strathmore School!

We wish to congratulate the class of 2021 on a great performance in the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exams released earlier today!

A BEAUTIFUL PARTNERSHIP

Strathmore School and the Nairobi Metropolitan Services have partnered to give a face lift to the shoulders of Mzima Springs Road.

In 2021, The Nairobi Metropolitan Services paved the shoulders of the Mzima Springs Road as part of their grand plan to provide major streets in Nairobi with pedestrian walkways.

To supplement these efforts, Strathmore School embarked on the street frontage landscaping aimed at giving a facelift to the shoulders. The lead architect in this project was Wycliffe Nyachwaya (Class of 2001). The project entailed planting of grass, shrubs and palms tress as well as installation of bollards, and waste bins.

The fruits of this partnership is the beautiful garden and walkway that gives a welcoming ambience to all those visiting the school; indeed, this has been a beautiful partnership!

We wish to congratulate the Class of 2021 on the good performance in the KCPE exams released on Monday, 28th March 2022. The class attained a mean of 372.13. Although this was a drop from the mean of 382.27 scored in 2020, the class registered an improvement in three subjects: English from a mean of 80.27 to 83.3; Math from 78.05 to 80.9 and Science from 72.30 to 74.0.

The top student this year is Justus Mamicha. He scored 407 marks. He was followed by Alex Kariuki (403). Enock Maina and Trevor Mwaura tied at 400 marks.

We thank the parents of the class of 2021 for your gallant efforts! Your support to this class, especially during the Covid-19 lock-down is much appreciated.

We wish the candidates the best of luck as they embark on the next level of their education.

Eternally grateful to God for the gift of Silvano Borruso.

Silvano, one of our founding teachers, peacefully departed this life into God’s presence on 1st January 2022. He not only helped in designing the school grounds but also joined the founding staff when the school opened its doors in 1961.

He selflessly dedicated himself to the formation of generations of students in the school and in the apostolate of Opus Dei on Kenya and East Africa.

Silvano served in various capacities in the school; bursar, mentor and teacher. He taught Biology, Geography, Mathematics, Physics, Religion an Ethics. He loved taking care of the environment and wrote many books.

His requiem mass was in school on Saturday 8th January 2022 followed by interment at Lang’ata Cemetry. The mass and interment was streamed live.

Eternal rest grant unto Silvano Borruso Oh God and may perpetual light shine upon him forever. Amen!

We regret to communicate that Msgr. Cormac Burke, our Assistant Chaplain passed on peacefully on 22nd November 2021.

He was the first chaplain of Strathmore School (1978).

He was a former Irish Civil Lawyer and was ordained a priest of the Prelature of Opus Dei in 1955. After 30 years of pastoral work in Africa, United Sates and England, he was appointed a judge of the High Court of the Church, the Roman Rota(1986-1999) during the Pontificate of St. John Paul II.

Upon retirement, he asked to return to Nairobi, Kenya, where he continued to work in the school Chaplaincy, while guiding many other men and women along their path to God.

He was the author of numerous books and articles, and remained an invaluable consultant to the Holy See.

We keep him in our prayers, offering up many hours of study, work and all we do during these days for the repose of his soul.

May he rest in eternal peace.

On 23rd November at the 11.55am and 2.05pm Masses we prayed for Mr. Micheal Pike on the first anniversary of his death.

Mr. Pike arrived in Kenya From Uruguay in 1988 and was a dedicated and loved teacher for all those years.

He passed on last year on the 23rd of November. He is buried in Langata Cemetery. We keep praying for his soul and thanking God for the opportunity of having met him and learned from his life.

Support our bursary fund!
