Greetings in the name of the LORD!

As the new principal of St. Aloysius Gonzaga Secondary school, my desire is to give the school a renewed focus and perspective. It is that newness that I would like to shape our school to the desired objectives. St. Al’s nurtures students to realize their potential by touching their minds and hearts. Our school is student-centered and we always make sure that every student feels at home away from home. 

I feel privileged to be serving this school as Principal to bring to board the vast experience that God has so far granted me. I have served as Principal for 6 years at St. Paul’s Secondary School, in the Catholic Diocese of Marsabit, 3 years at Rongai Boys Secondary School, in the Catholic Diocese of Nakuru and 3 years as Deputy Principal St. Mary’s Boys Secondary School, in the Archdiocese of Nyeri. I bring with me expertise and a wealth of experience in the field of leadership in education. I have greatly interacted with the Ministry of Education on matters concerning education while in these capacities.

I will use this expertise to ensure that generosity of our benefactors is not taken for granted and bear fruits. I therefore, urge parents and all stakeholders to join hands in providing life changing experiences to our students that will help deliver that success that we all yearn for. In that connection, I will endeavor to spearhead the formation of a vibrant parents association to support in this important journey.

I want to believe with all the hardworking staff, well-equipped libraries and laboratories of Science and IT we shall all succeed in making men and women for others. In all things to learn, love and serve.

God bless you all.

Mr. Michael M. Kimotho.
