Education in Christian Brothers’ Schools is a ministry which aims to contribute to the liberation of people through the power of the Gospel.
The charisma of Edmund Rice includes a tradition of generosity, dedication to youth, care for those disadvantaged, excellence in education and active interest in all aspects of student life.
Since its founding over 20 years ago the Edmund Rice Sinon Secondary School has expanded its curriculum and facilities to keep pace with the increase in population, the demands of employers and tertiary institutions, and the changing nature of the world we live in. The school now has approximately 1,350 students who are spread across Forms One to Six and come from various religious denominations and backgrounds; 46% of the student body are Muslim, with children attending from both the cities and Masai villages. The faculty, staff and students of Edmund Rice Sinon strive to live as a community of caring people, not necessarily of the same religious denomination but sharing Christian values.
The school is also a model of sustainability: nothing is wasted and everything is recycled. All of the school’s energy and food are home produced. The campus houses about 880 are full time boarders while another 200 are hostel students coming to school on Monday morning and going home on Friday evening. All faculty and staff are dedicated to the personal development of the students they serve – in whatever capacity this may be.
