On 1st February, the school chess team comprising of: 12 Primary Pupils and 15 High School students, attended the Nairobi Region Chess qualifiers. The competition is aimed at players from the Nairobi region represent the region for the National competition.

All 17 chess players from Strathmore School qualified to proceed to the National competition to be held in April in Mombasa. There were 3 players who were exceptional and these were: Lionel Correia(Form 3) who emerged 2nd Best in the Boys U18 category, Timothy Kinoti(Form 3) who was third in same category followed by Trevor Kimalel(Form 3) at 4th place.

They will be headed to the National Competition in April. We wish them success!

Strathmore’s chess club has been very vibrant for the last two years. The club participated in the Kenya National Youth and Cadets Chess Championships for the first time and managed to shine. The school was ranked ninth overall as one of the best high schools and fourth in the boys’ category which was a great start to better things ahead.

The icing on the cake was during the December holidays one of the club’s strongest members Samuel Kinyua, who was first runners-up in the under 18 category, earned the opportunity to represent the school and the country at large in the prestigious African Youth Chess Championships in Windhoek, Namibia as part of the handpicked Kenyan team due to his outstanding performance in the tournament.

This great African tournament attracted players from different African countries totaling to nearly 250 participants. The tournament, which ran for a week, brought along nice exposure and a load of learning experience for better preparation for future events for the star player. The tournament was filled with heavyweights from other countries and after hefty and mind wrinkling matches, Samuel managed to be 19th in his category and 5th in the Kenyan team.

Indeed, it is a great honor to have had one of Strathmore’s students flying high the school’s and the country’s flag. This was not easily achieved, but due to Samuel’s commitment, love for the club and passion for the sport some wonderful fruits have been borne. From this, the standard has been set for the remaining members of the club so that they raise the bar to a higher notch and make Strathmore a force to be reckoned with on the continent.

As a club, we wish Samuel all the best in his future endeavors on making an impact in the chess world.

Chess Patron,

Mr. Maina

On October 12th 2019 the school had its annual Career Day for the Form 4 class of 2019.

The Form 4 students and their parents had the chance to get career advice from colleges and universities both local and international, Tertiary institutions, IGCE colleges and schools were also represented.

At the end of the day the students and their parents were more informed about the options available for them.

On the 21st September 2019 the school held its annual prize giving day. It was a bright and colorful Saturday afternoon. Students, school staff and parents all had a share in the awards. The Form 4 and Standard 8 classes of 2019 had their graduation. There were pieces of entertainment from students and the usual ‘zilizopendwa’ staff performance.

The rangers left school on the 14th August 2019 for Amboseli for the camp.

It was 3 days of fun, learning and sports. They were able to visit the Amboseli National Park, cross the Kenyan Tanzania Border to visit the Kilimanjaro National park through the Rongai route.

They returned on the 17th August 2019 exhausted but happy.

The memories of Strathmore’s heroic performance in the 2013 Nakuru edition of Kenya National Music Festivals and 2017 Kakamega edition of Kenya National Music Festivals are back. Another impeccable performance by the School Choir in this year’s Festivals.

As the training began early in the year, every single day showed an improvement on each item and all musical ears had their impressive comments about the proceedings. A variety of items were polished in well coordinated training sessions ranging from instrumental classes, Vocal Solos, Public Speaking, Solo Verses in various languages to well arranged pieces in boys’ musical classes. No sooner had the competitions begun than it became clearer that the School Choir had something of substance for the audience.

At the Subregionals held at Ruaraka High School, the choir presented a total of 20 items out of which 16 qualified for the next level; nine being in position 1, three in position 2 while four in third position.

At the Regionals held at Moi Forces Academy, Eastleigh, it was another show of dominance as 9 items scored very high marks to proceed to the National Festivals. Ranging from Saxophones, Clarinets, Vocal Solos, Small Choirs to Arrangement of African Folk Tunes and Sacred Text melodies, Strathmore School Choir was easily noticeable in the halls. The most prominent piece of Art was Mr. Andrew Tumbo’s arrangement of African Tunes and Melodies from Baganda Culture entitled “Wagongollo”.

As the nine items proceeded to Kabarak University in Nakuru for the National Festivals, the joy and optimism had drowned any doubts that better things were yet to come. And yes, it happened. Three of the items were 1st position in Kabarak, another three 2nd position, another three third position and the last three fourth position. This splendid performance gave Strathmore a direct ticket to the Winners Galla and State Concert which was graced by H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House Nakuru.

There is truly more to achieve in the year 2020
