LORETO MATUNDA HIGH SCHOOL’S BRIEF HISTORY

The spread of Christianity saw the establishment of the Matunda Catholic Mission and other developments seen today.
The Mission was established between 1949 & 1950 by the Kiltegan Fathers from Ireland led by Fr. Henan. They started a seminary which was inaugurated in 1959 when the first Form Ones were admitted. Among the early seminarians were the likes of Bishop Kairu (Murang’a), Fr. Morris Lwanga, Hon. Koigi wa Wamwere (former MP Subukia) and Hon. Kimani wa Nyoike (former MP Kinangop) .

In 1967, during the second term, the seminarians moved to Eldoret, the present day Mater Apostolorum (Mother of Apostles) seminary. This created room for the establishment of the then St. Joseph’s Girls Secondary School which was run by the Loreto Sisters, who had equally movedfrom the then Eldoret convent (presently Catholic University of Eastern Africa – Eldoret /Gaba Campus) to its present site. In 1969, the name changed to Loreto Convent Matunda. By this time, the school was entirely under the auspices of the Loreto Sisters as a private school. Later, it was taken over by the Government.

The chronology of events was follows:
  • 1972 Became Government maintained single stream
  • 1975 Full Government maintained Form 1-4 single stream
  • 1979 Start of second stream
  • 1982 Double stream from Form 1-4
  • 1983 1st Form 5 Arts stream intake
  • 1984 1st Form 6 sat for K.A.C.E
  • 1986 First 8-4-4 system double intake in Form 1
  • 1987 Last Form 4 (7-6-3 system)
  • 1989 Last Form 6 under the 7-6-3 system and first Form 4 under the 8-4-4 system.

Currently the school is 4 streamed.  The school motto, as is found in all Loreto institutions worldwide is enshrined in Latin, ” Cruci Dum Spiro Fido”, which means “On  The Cross While I Live I Trust” or better still “All For The Greater Glory Of God”. This has been a guiding dictum in all that pertains to the school life and thereafter. Great emphasis is laid on provision of holistic education for the formation of an all-round person; (spiritually, socially, mentally and physically). Hence, the school offers the necessary atmosphere and facilities to ensure the exploitation of individual potentialities.Spiritually, students are encouraged to actively participate in church functions.

This includes attending mass, morning and evening prayers, participation in YCS and Legion of Mary. Through these organizations, students have been able not only to benefit themselves but also the community at large. Academically, the school has been competitive, not only at the District level, but also at the County and national levels. Over the years, the school has posted good K.C.S.E results by sending a good number of students to the public, private universities and other tertiary institutions. Our hopes and aspirations are still to achieve remarkable performances in future as reflected in our school mission statement “Shine in everything that is good”.

Apart from P.E, which is part of the academic curriculum, students are offered a variety of co-curricular activities among them: hockey, athletics, basketball, football, handball, netball, drama, music, German Cultural Festivals, Essay writing competitions, National student leadership conferences and Kenya Science And Engineering Fair, through which some have enabled the school to appear in district, County and national levels thus enhancing the Loreto image. Currently the school is an extra-county school with a population of 850.
It is a four stream school. The school is CEMASE and STEM center.
