GAICHANJIRU HIGH SCHOOL’S BRIEF HISTORY

Gaichanjiru High School was founded in 1959 by the Catholic Diocese of Nyeri in a 14 acre piece of land.  The Consolata Missionaries were within this area of Kandara District around 1925 when they started Gaichanjiru Catholic Parish nearby.

The founding Headmaster was the late Reverend Fr. Victor Deleidi and was posted from the then St. Cecilia Teachers College (current Mugoiri Girls High school).

In January 1959 he admitted the first batch of 25 boys from various parts of Central Province. Most of these boys came from exclusively Catholic run Primary Schools.

In the early 60’s to mid-70’s the main boys Secondary School in this Southern side of the then Murang’a District Njiiris High School (PCEA – DEB), Githumu High School (AIC) and Gaichanjiru High School (Catholic). The three schools used to hold what used to be called triangular games every year. Most of the teaching staff were of Asian/Goan origin and the first three Headmasters up to 1967 were Catholic Priests.

In 1967 the first African Headmaster the late Mr. John Baptista Wambugu was posted from Nyeri High School. He was the longest serving Headmaster for 16 years from 1967 – 1983.
In 1962, 22 boys sat for the form 4 examination and became the first graduates. Among the prominent people, is Mr. Munga, Chairman and founder of Equity Bank.

The school has grown from the initial population of 25 boys to today’s population of about 889 students.  In the last six years, the school has grown from 3 stream school to the current 5 streams.
Since 1959, the school has nurtured thousands of young men who had the privilege of having their secondary school sojourn here. The vast majority of them have gone on to successfully serve the society and God, in different areas and capacities.

Our School Motto, Mission, Vision and core values are all geared towards encouraging our students to grow into brave, confident, hardworking and focused men.
