The school is also planning to construct a central kitchen using funds availed by the government, through the Economic Stimulus Package. This project is aimed at enhancing service delivery in efficiency and effectiveness.

Arrangements are made by the school to transport any student requiring such attention. In the event that a student is not able to attend the normal school activities, they are admitted in the sanatorium which has a capacity of twenty beds, all of which are in private rooms.

The school in collaboration with the Parents and Teachers Association has made arrangements for the vaccination of all new students who have not been vaccinated for Hepatitis B.

It is school policy to maintain a well conserved and aesthetic environment in the school. Trees, grass and flowers are planted and maintained with the deliberate intention to make the school beautiful. The school is also establishing a forest with an aim of being self sufficient in wood fuel requirements.

GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING DEPARTMENT

GUIDANCE

Head of Department

Mrs Christine Kipkemboi

The school mission is described by the need to prepare students for an academic performance that leads to a career of choice. It is school policy to provide as wide a curriculum as possible so that at the point of making career choices, a student is not limited.

The school facilitates the capacity building of staff to enable them give adequate and appropriate information to students to help in career choices. Latest information concerning university courses and those offered in other tertiary institutions both locally and abroad is available to students.

The school provides for weekly sessions in which experts in various careers specialization are invited to talk to students in order to provide useful information in career choices. This sessions are used for both inspiration and education.

COUNSELLING

Head of Department

Mrs Christine Kipkemboi

The school policy is informed by the mission statement which has in part the need to develop student character founded on the fear of God in preparation for a life of service.

The school places a lot of importance to the role of various arms of the school to give positive influence to the students. The department plays the pro-active role of providing useful information and investigating various indicators with an aim of dealing with negative influences before they take effect. Whenever circumstances appear to have manifested negative indicators, the department is able to take quick and effective mitigating measures.

This approach has helped us support our students in various situations. We have no serious discipline cases, and all of those that emerge out of the ordinary have been dealt with. We have never had to lose any of our students for cases of indiscipline except one in several years. The department works very closely with the parents or guardians.

This department plays an important role in guiding, educating, advising to help the students make informed decisions on aspects related to their careers, health, choice of friends, sexuality, academics and other related areas. The department uses an integrated approach whereby the whole life of the student in school is well supervised by the chaplaincy, house mistress, class-teachers, club patrons, parents and the school administration. Any student going astray is well guided in time to enable them achieve their desired goals after four years. The guidance and counselling departments thus coordinates with these other departments in preparing guidance and counselling programmes for the whole school, small groups and individual student who require help. We have allocated time for guidance every Tuesday of the week from 4.15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.

We inspire our students on the foundational statement of the students identity; “I am a MOIGEAN! I am responsible! I conduct myself with dignity and integrity!” For the girls, this is their aspiration and inspiration.

The school is in the process of producing a document that will be a guided programme to expose the student to knowledge and information, through theirweekly class meetings, to help them develop in character and all round in a systematic way.

FEES AND BURSARY

Head of Department

Mrs Lilian Kinuthia

Moi Girls High School Eldoret is a public school, therefore it operates on a budget that is shared between parents/guardians and the Government of Kenya.

The role of Government is;

  • Provide teachers and to pay salaries to all members of the teaching staff within the constraints of national budgetary allocation throuh the Teachers’ Service Commission. Our school is fortunate in having all its teaching staff falling within this category except for just a few.
  • Give grants for development projects every so often. This assistance is not guaranteed and sometimes the grants do not come.
  • Support the payment of school fees for every student through the Free Day Secondary Education programme by paying approximately sh 10,265 per student annually. This may soon be revised upwards.
The school management has kept focused on providing quality education as defined in the school mission.

    Quality education is an expensive undertaking. The school management has involved the parents’ representative very closely in the budget-making process so as to endorse the rationale of its annual budget proposals and ensure full support from the financiers. It is the commitment of the school management to ensure that the school books of finance are audited annually by the Ministry of Education. The annual audit reports have been very positive.

    While the annual fees requirement is reasonable and affordable to about 80% of all parents, it remains a challenge to;

    • About 10% who can manage only partly
    • About 10% who cannot manage at all and some of whom bring their daughters to school without even the  very basic personal needs

    The school management pursues a policy aimed at never allowing any of our students to drop out of school because of failure to pay school fees.

    In pursuit of the policy on school fees payment, the success of the school is based on;

    • Encouraging the parents or guardians who are able to pay the school fees to do so in time.
    • Working out a reasonable schedule for parents who may not pay fees at a go so as to give them an opportunity to spread out this challenge over a longer period.
    • Facilitating the efforts from individuals or organizations who are supporting the education of some of our students.
    • Seeking support for the education of some of our students who come from needy families.

    The Department of Fees and Bursary was established to;

    • manage the fees payment schedule in consultation of with the class teachers.
    • coordinate the communication with individuals or organizations which are supporting the fees payments of some of our students.
    • highlight the plight of identified students who come from disadvantaged families with the aim of attracting support for their education

    In the short term, we continue to seek support from individuals or organizations to enable us continue to make the quality education offered in this institution accessible to all deserving Kenyan girls.

    In the long term, we are seeking for support to establish a school endowment fund that would make the school self-supporting in bursary needs for students who come from disadvantaged backgrounds. The details are available in another part of this web-site. In the  meantime, we laud all individuals and organizations who have come out in support of our needy, yet deserving students. Thank you all who have supported our students.

    Television

    The school has 4 T.V. sets which are a source of information and entertainment for students. They are installed in each of the four dining halls

    Students watch TV when they are not in class and when no other school routine is interfered with. They have organized themselves so that specific channels are tuned in at specific dining halls to allow for choice or variety. A staff member oversees the program.
