Some memories of the School:
  • The guys - Simon Omondi (Mongo), D.K Maina, Onzere, Dan Nyomba, Ouya, Thuku ..............
  • My first and last Rugby game -
      I had never played rugby before. When rugby season rolled around several housemates decided to play a prank on me.
      They convinced me that I was in good shape to play for the house - in the scrum.
      After several scrums, my head is realing, my neck hurts, I gave up. And suddenly everyone started laughing.
      The joke was to see how long I would last!!
  • Great teachers: "Shaft" - Athi House master, Mr. Dale (Maths), Mr. Priestly (Chemistry), Mr. Mpisi (Physics).
