Bishop Gatimu Ngandu Girls School Overview and History
Bishop Gatimu Ngandu Girls’, a perennial top performer in the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exams was founded in the 1960s by the late Bishop Caesar Gatimu and was run by the Comboni mission in Karatina, Nyeri Town. It initially took the name of the area where it was situated, i.e. Ngandu Girls’ High School, and the name was later changed to honor its founder.The late Sister Nazarena Zonta and her deputy ran the school until 1983. Various lay principals (or headmistresses) have headed the school since.
The school’s Old Girls’ group is making an effort to reunite with alumni to help revamp the school and collect donations to the school. The group visits the school various times in a year to talk to the current student body and offer them career advice and leadership.
In the 1980s the school was ranked among the top girls’ schools throughout the decade. In the 1990s it stayed in the top ten and has continued to maintain the excellent performance in National exams year after year.
The school has participated variously in national competitions like the Great debaters among others.
The school was initially named Ngandu Girls High School, after the place it currently sits. It was not until later the school changed its name to Bishop Gatimu Girls to honor its founder. Although run on strict Catholic tradition, the school had compulsory entertainment every Saturday and Compulsory siesta every Sunday afternoon. This work and play culture seem to have been the secret formula for the success of the school. The school also has a big and well-stocked library.
