The school was started in 1971 on HARAMBEE BASIS (Equivalent of today’s day secondary) by the community to offer education to both boys and girls who missed opportunity to join the then government school of the time. It’s a triple streamed mixed public boarding secondary school.

The indicators of a successfully accomplished mission include:

-          To be able to equip and mold the youth to be role models in facing life challenges.

-          To be able to enroll over 600 students.

-          To attain an overall mean score of7.30 by 2022.

2.4 CORE VALUES AND GUIDING PRINCIPLES

-          Nationalism/ Patriotism

-          Integrity

-          Professionalism

-          Team work

-          Continued improvement

-          Courtesy

-          Innovativeness

 

2.5 STRATEGIC GOALS.

Strategic goals were identified after careful analysis of the external and internal environment, the schools’ capacity to manage change, the governance capacity, student and stakeholder’s capacity and financial resources and management.

The 4 goals/ pillars were identified and will be managed in order to move the school from where it is today towards greater fulfillment of its vision.

 

2.6 OBJECTIVES.

Objectives are statements about what the school wishes to achieve in a given time frame. They establish direction, priorities and specific targets that will improve educational outcomes in the school. They address major problem, threats and opportunities that must be addressed if the school is to achieve substantial change in its operations thereby fulfilling both its vision and mission statements.

Objectives can be established every second or third year and relate to the mission and tasks the school is trying to achieve (external objectives) or to building the capacity of the school to achieve the internal objectives.

These are broad guidelines that show how the four goals/ imperatives and educational objectives will be realized. They answer the question “how” but without going into details. Objectives that support the identified strategic goals are achieved action plan.

2.7 ACTION PLANS

Action plans covert the strategic goals, strategies and objectives into time bound activities for implementation by specifying ‘what will be done’, ‘who will do what’? By when? ”The resources required’ and the expected outcomes. The action plans specify the actions needed to address critical issues and necessary choices that must be made regarding the future of the school.

It is important to always mind that the purpose of the operational plan is to link proposed activities with a budget. This however, has not been done because every project will be budgeted for separately.
