About Us
From The Principal

Mr. Zachayo Kabatha

"Education is a shared commitment between dedicated teachers, motivated students and enthusiastic parents with high expectations"

Today, the role of a school is not only to pursue academic excellence but also to motivate and empower its students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and productive members of an ever-changing society.

The school is striving hard to make the best possible efforts to inculcate strong values combining with academics and extra-curricular activities in the student.

Converting every individual into a self-reliant and independent citizen. We are a community working together, valuing our students and teaching values. This year (2024), we have 100 candidates and we are guided by the clarion call "Total Discipline equals to Total Success"

It is wonderful working with the Ministry Of Education, Teachers Service Commission, School Sponsor, Gathathi-ini Boys High School parents, teachers, non teaching staff and other stake holders. Together we will continue to make an already great school, an even greater school!
