The School rallied by the Form 3 Captains embarked on a target to raise funds to support the Lisha Kenya Fundraiser which was aimed at fundraising for the Needy Kenyans. The 1 Million Shilling target mark was reached and most classes managed to hit their targets and were treated to class parties, Dress Down Friday and Excursions.
Grade 3s had a chance to visit St. Charles Lwanga School. Strathmore School had been in a reach-out partnership with St. Charles Lwanga School with an aim to help as much as possible. This time round the Grade 3s made a courtesy visit to the primary section of the school with donations of different kinds.
This year we had the annual U11 and U13 soccer Tournament on the 8th October. The Tournament categories had 12 teams each.
In the U11 Category; Thika Road Christian emerged victors with Makini and Strathmore scooping the runners up and first runners up respectively.
In the U13 category; Makini School won followed by Strathmore and St. Austins in 2nd and 3rd place respectively.
The Form 3 Captains in collaboration with the school management have come up with an initiative dubbed FEED THE NEEDY. This initiative aims at raising awareness about drought situation and also raising funds aimed at ameliorating the food crisis. We would like to channel our efforts especially towards school-going children in the north of Kenya so that as many of them as possible are able to get at least one meal a day. This we hope, will in turn, keep many of these children in school. Our aim is to raise KES 1,000,000/- (One Million Shillings).
we would like to appeal to each member of the school community to consider donating meals to these hungry children. Each meal is valued at KES 300/-. You can donate as many meals as you can afford.
You can make a donation by M-Pesa as detailed below:
PAY BILL NUMBER: 561550
ACCOUNT NUMBER: ACCOUNT NUMBER: LISHA e.g.10040LISHA
Please note that this campaign will run until Wednesday, 19th October 2022.

St. Charles Lwanga Secondary School and Children’s Centre is a charitable facility that hosts over 200 children (both boys and girls) mainly from the streets and low income families in areas like Kayole, Kibra, Dandora and Mathare in Nairobi. The institution was founded in 2010 by Brothers of St. Charles Lwanga whose compassion and love for children was moved by the suffering of the youths in Nairobi and its environs. The school is located in Ruai, 40kms from the CBD on the Nairobi-Kagundo Road.
St. Charles Lwanga Secondary School and Children’s Centre is a place where orphaned, homeless and abandoned children are rescued and provided with shelter, food and a place to call home.
Today the Centre is offering high school curriculum and the children are provided with a safe place to live in, a reliable source of nutritious food and the opportunity to gain high school education with the possibility of post-secondary education. Brothers who earn no salary find it difficult to meet all these needs.
The Brothers of St. Charles Lwanga have sacrificed a lot. Strathmore School, in solidarity with the Brothers have established the urgent needs of the school. In this regard we have donated text books and staff furniture.
Their immediate need at the moment is to roof a boys’ dormitory that stalled two years ago and to acquire decent desks and chairs for the learners.
We appeal to anyone who can offer physical or financial support to get in touch with us using the contact details found in the CONTACTS SECTION on this website.
May God Bless you for your support!
After a stellar performance in the 1st Edition, The Debate Club had the privilege to once again take part in the 2nd Edition of the Mashujaa Debate School Tournament at Strathmore University on 3rd and 4th of September. The tournament had more than 30 schools participating.
