Limuru Girls High School Description
Limuru Girls High School is a girls’ national school located in Tigoni 29 kilometers from Nairobi 29 Km on Nairobi – Banana – Limuru Road. Two Kilometers from Ken chic plant Tigoni. Situated between tea plantations.
Limuru Girls High School was founded in 1922 by Arnold Buttler McDonell for Evelyn Mitchell and three of his other daughters and any others who might join on his farm. The first Headmistress was his governess and his oldest daughter Evelyn Mitchell became the first old girl of the school.
It was initially a junior school called Hill preparatory school and most of the girls continued with their education in England in the initial years some boys were admitted to the school but only as day scholars but the trend was abandoned from around 1943 due to staffing problems.
In 1938 the first ‘O’ level students sat their examination and in 1952 the first ‘A’ level students sat their examination. One of the beliefs that developed among students was that if all Jacaranda trees flowered around November then all the students would pass their examination.
In 1926 McDonell sold the school and 60 acres of the farm to the Church Commissioners Society. They wished to have a Diocesan school in Kenya. In 1936 the Commonwealth and Continental Church Society (CCS) became responsible for the school. Today the school is sponsored by the Anglican Church of Kenya the Diocese of Mount Kenya South.
