Ngecho Secondary School

An introduction

In 2006 we founded Ngecho Secondary School so that children from the many surrounding primary schools would have access to affordable secondary education – there was no such facility easily accessible to the area. It is located in part of the grounds of the Primary School – the playing fields are shared.

The school has grown rapidly and now has some 350 students. It is regarded as the most ultra-modern school in the region. In 2009 it was awarded first place in the KCSE (Day Schools) ranking in the wider Naivasha District.

What have we done?

We completed the first phase of construction in 2006, providing four classrooms. This was quickly followed by two science laboratories; the lab benches have long-lasting hardwood surfaces, and the science facilities alone place the school in a different league from any other secondary schools in the area and will act as a model for future projects.

Further phases were built on an annual basis (including toilet blocks and administration centre), resulting in the complete plan with just the assembly hall yet to be built.

We have also set up a bursary fund to ensure that bright but poor students who are unable to afford the school fees can complete their secondary education.

What’s the plan?

The design for the multi-purpose hall is finalised, and the intention is to construct it during 2016 including a realignment of the internal access road. The rainwater harvesting will then be completed and a principal stone storage tank built. The present temporary mbati dining hall will be dismantled and re-erected on another part of the site to provide a technical training section.
