MUTHAMBI GIRLS HIGH SCHOOL’S BRIEF HISTORY

Muthambi Girls high school was established in 1967 by the Consolata Catholic Missionaries following the industrious initiative of Reverend Father Julius Kathure who hailed from the then Chuka Parish. The school sits on acreage of approximately twenty five (25) acres of land which is spacious ground that allows a variety of activities, facilities as well as freedom of movement for all. The land was voluntarily donated by the community members to accommodate the Muthambi Catholic church, Muthambi primary school and the girl’s secondary school. Some of the families that donated the land were Bonjiano, Edward and Josiphino Nyaga. Following the land adjudication by the government the school eventually acquired the twenty five acres of land (O.I. Josiphino: 11/6 2018) for its development.

The late, Rev.Fr. Kathure was the regional education secretary under the diocese of Meru.His great idea to construct this school was endorsed by a committee on 24th September 1966. The members of this team comprised the following;

  • Mr. Willie Bore………………..Chairman
  • Mr Batholomew ………………Vice Chairman
  • Rv.Fr. Julius Kathure…………Treasurer
  • Mr Robert Miriti…………………Hon. Secretary
  • Mr. Benjamin Baini……………..Committee member

  • MR Alexus Njagi………………….. ’’
  • Mr Eusebio Kaburu………………. ’’
  • Mr Elisio Njogu…………………… ’’
  • Mr Fabanio Mwihandi…………… ’’

By December 1966, other fathers came in hardy to support in establishing the school namely; Rev.Fr Andrew Mungatia, Rev. Fr. Francis Mbijiwe and Rev.Fr.Iland. They all shared in the great dream starting a girl’s secondary school. In the preliminaries, Muthambi intermediate school had given ksh 1776 to support the building of the initial facilities. This great team mobilized the community to implement the ideology of Rev. Fr. Kathure which gave rise to the school in February of the following year 1967.

In establishing this prestigious girls school Fr Kathure imbibed the mission of the Consolata missionaries to evangelize and educate non-Christians all over the world. He strongly believed in the benefit of religion and education as was advocated for by the general superior of Consolata foreign missions Giuseppe Allamano (1851-1926) in his mission statement that; ‘the people will love religion because of the promise of a better life after death but education will make them happy because it will provide a better life while on earth’(Sbacchi:1998:319).

Led by the ideology of Giuseppe Allamano, Rev. Fr Kathure selflessly took keen interest in the education of the girl child by founding Muthambi Girls which he hoped would provide a better life for them. As a great initiator, Rev. Fr.Kathure mobilized the Muthambi community and shared his great dream of starting this girl’s school. He was a missionary statesman with broad humanity, deep love, resilience and vision for educating young girls. His relentless efforts gave the people of Muthambi the first impetus towards formal education for girls.

As the demand for the few vacancies increased, the school became a double stream school from 1974 and has continued to grow in facilities as well as students enrolment.

These include; Muthambi,Marima, Karigini, Itara, Kagongo, Giampampo, Kiini, Kagongogaceke, Gituntu, Ndumbini, Munga, Kariakomo, Ndunguri and Kiriani.
