From the Principal

The school is blessed to have a new principal in the name of Madam Beatrice Maina. She has replaced Dr. Michael Kimotho who served the school between 2017 and 2019. Hitherto to her appointment in early 2020, she has been serving as the Deputy Principal in charge of the graduates program, a position she has served in diligently for the last 5 years. Madam Beatrice is a trained teacher by profession and the longest serving member of staff at St. Aloysius. This places her at a pole position in understanding not only the history of the school but also the ethos that drives the school. Her charming personality coupled with her undying commitment and unparalleled loyalty to the school is great assets. We pray and wish her best of luck as she steers this ship ahead.

STRENGTHS OF ST. ALS

At St. ALS we give formal education in a formal setting. This enables our students to compete with other students in Kenya and to a larger extent globally. Acquiring quality education in Kibera is a big challenge for most of the students who graduate from primary schools and that is the very reason we have very many applicants for scholarships every year.

St. Als provides an enabling environment for bright children who would wish to grow their talents in addition to academic development. This helps to keep the youth busy and fight criminal activities and drug abuse which are rampant in Kibera slums.

St. Aloysius is well equipped with resources like spacious classrooms, books, well equipped science and computer laboratories as well as a qualified and committed staff.

St. ALS recognizes that children are the only raw materials from which we can manufacture responsible human beings. We therefore endeavour to make sure that every child that passes through our school is molded to be the best product the society would wish to receive.

MESSAGE TO THE DONOR

I would wish to express my sincere appreciation for your generosity and continuous support for different programs in St. Aloysius Gonzaga Secondary school. Your personal commitment and good will has enabled St. ALS continue producing responsible men and women for others.  My prayer is for this relationship to continue.  God bless you.
