FAQs - Kianda School

Why a Day School?

What do past and present students have to say about that?

“I learnt the importance of family. It is my treasure….A great part of my character was moulded in Kianda and by my parents. My Character gave me my role in society and continues to do so.” Nelly Githaka ‘89.

“It formed a basis for development of my management skills in managing life, duties and activities both in school and at home (great multi-tasking and organization skills were honed).” Connie Gakonyo ‘82.

“My mum‘s encouragement: she thought it would foster family unity unlike boarding school where i would only see my family a few days a year and I do agree, seeing my parents and my brother everyday made me closer to them; I could help out at home and seek their help in anything i needed.” Yvonne Kamiri ‘05.

On Formation

“Kianda introduced me to integrity. She made me strong, assertive, brave, and a go getter. Kianda made me recognize my inner self. Gave me pride to be a woman. The all-round education in Kianda made me understand its importance when I got out to the world…” Nelly Githaka ‘89.

“Kianda has a protective environment that enables you to get to know yourself better and grow as an individual before you venture into the world. This is important because the world out there is a different place; it is tough. If you have no knowledge of self you will find it very hard to cope.” Christine Matogo ’04.

It is a life enriching experience that helps the students to grow in all aspects of life. It is extremely helpful and has made a huge impact on our lives.” Rachel Githumbi ’13.

“I have greatly benefited from the School’s Tutorial System as it makes me confident enough to confide in my tutor any problems that I may face. My tutor for example has given me hope in my academics when I thought all was lost. She is also funny, considerate and always looks out for my best interests. Other schools should adopt a tutorial system so as to enhance the relationship between the staff and students as well as create an atmosphere of mutual trust and understanding.” Nawekulo Gachanja ’13.
