ST. TERESAS GIRLS SECONDARY SCHOOL  

 

Principal’s Message

 St. Teresa's Girls' Secondary is a Catholic Sponsored Private School in the Catholic Archdiocese of Mombasa, under the management of the Assumption Sisters of Nairobi. It opened its doors in 1990 as an initiative of the Most Rev. Archbishop John Njenga, the then Archbishop of Mombasa. Since then, the school has been inspired by its motto, vision, mission and core values in molding a complete person where students' high degree of discipline and hard-work are maintained. Excellence, commitment and integrity are key values at St. Teresa's Girls' Secondary School with both staff and students striving to work within timelines in service delivery, class attendance and performing their respective duties. The School offers 8-4-4 Kenyan Curriculum as provided in the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology with eight examinable subjects ranging from Sciences, Applied and Technical subjects and Arts.

The school participates in co-curricular activities most notably ball games, athletics, music, clubs and societies among others.

Being a Catholic sponsored institution; the school has a very strong and effective pastoral care system, creating opportunities for all students to be connected to their maker. Daily celebration of Holy Mass is observed by all students and a one day Recollection termly. Catholic students are prepared for various Sacraments including

Baptism, Confirmation, Penance and Eucharist. Echoing Martin Luther King Jr., who stated that Intelligence plus character is the goal of true education: we all know that the mission of Education is to inform, form and transform learners to be relevant in the society encroached with all kinds of challenges and influences; to stand out in the crowds and be counted as reliable and independent citizens.

Our society has become highly receptive and it is through the kind of Education we give to our learners based on value and character formation that we will discern what information we deliver to them, hence fulfill the mandate of Jesus Christ …''Go out to the whole world and make disciples of all nations…” At the Saints, we are envisioning renewed attempts at re-engineering the school so as to take its rightful place in churning out students who will take up the mantle and thrust our nation into the competitive global heights. We endeavor to offer quality services to all who come to us since service to humanity is service to God.

 

Bring us a girl we give you back a woman of substance.

Long live St. Teresa’s Girls’ Secondary School.

 

Deputy Principal’s Message

Demystifying the term discipline in the minds of students is key to achieving meaningful change in behavior towards set goals. The term is associated with past painful encounters to the extent of causing resentment whenever it's mentioned. But in actual sense discipline is the heartbeat of any success in human endeavors of life. A well-conditioned mind is able to withstand frivolous temptations of short-lived gratifications of stray thoughts.

All discipline problems are not alike. Effort has to be made to integrate many approaches of discipline by matching them to different problems at hand.

We teachers have been adequately exposed to emerging issues in discipline. “I Choose Life” NGO implementing Girl Child Education Challenges program in selected counties in the country has held seminars centered on challenges in discipline facing education sector. Student participation in decision making on matters of their interest make it easy to them adhering to such formulated principles. Guided democracy has taken root. Students' council is elected by universal suffrage of fellow students.

Looking at discipline as a war that has to be fought successfully with limited chances of losing, a quote from renowned Italian General, Napoleon Bonaparte, may give direction; “You must not fight too often with the same enemy or you will teach him all your art of war”

War with discipline problems is won. It is now war with great academic performance.

THE GREAT TEAM

 

 

STUDENTS COUNCIL

“It takes deliberation action to achieve excellence!” All excellence involves discipline and tenacity of purpose, remember, that the people who doubt what we say may change their minds when they see what we do. Excellence demands that you be better than yourself because no one has ever had the life experience you have had. Therefore, comparison should be a parameter with which we can measure human ability and not individual ability. God sees us as already confident and cheerful. He sees us as not pathetic victims of life but masters of the art of living; not wanting sympathy but imparting help to others and therefore thinking less and less of ourselves and feel not of self-concern but of love and laughter and the desire to serve. One of the most important pleasant thoughts to any human being is the thought that he is needed, that he is important enough to help and add to the happiness of some other human being. For this reason the Bible urges us to love one another and to be a living hope to others.

James Allan spoke this truth, 'You will become as small as your controlling desire, as great as your dominant aspiration.'
