School History and Current situation Analysis


ST. THOMAS AQUINAS KATHEKA Boys Sec. School was started back in 1974 as Harambee Sec. School to assist the local children who could not get places to Provincial and National Schools or Access education. The school is sponsored by the Catholic Church. The school is situated in Eastern province, Kitui County (Kitui West District), Mutonguni division, Kauwi Zone.

In 1994, all the girls were phased out and it became purely Boys school. A second stream was started in 1996 and the enrollment continued to increase posing challenges to all existing facilities. In 2008, a third stream was started. Today the school is a fully pledged provincial school with a population of 480 students, 14 teachers and 17 support staff.

The school has 5 dormitories, 11 classrooms, 2 labs, a computer room, a library, 4 staff houses, 1 kitchen, and a multipurpose hall among other facilities. The school is registered by the Ministry of education via certificate no. GP/A/6022/09.
