This year’s celebration of the Body and Blood of Jesus in the school was well celebrated with families in the school donating flowers which were used to create a petal carpet where Our Lord would passed over as He was brought to the library forecourt where the whole school community was present.

The boys and teachers came together to do the artwork on the pathway before the petals were placed in a pattern to form a colourful petal carpet.

For the form 4 students, the ceremony was their last in school, had the opportunity to be present in the procession led by the Grade 3 boys who recently received First Holy Communion.

Our Lord remained exposed in the altar throughout the day till 7.30pm. This was to keep the tradition of 12 Hours with the Lord where parents, staff and students had sessions in the chapel to be with Our Lord in the exposed Eucharist from 7.30am to 7.30pm all having turns.

It was a wonderful Thursday!

Today we had mass to give thanks for the academic performance for the Standard 8 and Form 4 classes of 2022.

The chaplaincy organised to have mass at the courtyard next to the library. The mass was well attended by the former candidate classes, students and pupils, parents and teachers.

After the mass; the parents and former candidates were treated to snacks as they chatted and went down memory lane.

We thank God for the results and pray for the students to transition well to the next level in life.

The annual Corpus Christi Procession in the school this year was on Thursday June 16th. Students and teachers prepared for the procession by preparing the drawings and flower petal carpet on the path which Our Lord was carried through for the beginning of the ceremony. The whole school was involved including parents and some past students of the school; from the preparation of the procession to keeping Our Lord company.

The procession started off in the morning with the exposition and benediction at the library forecourt and ended in the evening at the school chapel. The school had 12 hours from 7am to 7pm with parents, students, staff members and past students taking turns in the chapel praying to Our Lord in the Eucharist.

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.
