Strive for the peak


This is one of the integral programmes run at MKASS. PSHEE aims at boosting confidence and self-esteem in the students as well as educating them in important life skills and knowledge. The acquired self-esteem encourages students to take up leadership roles, entrepreneurship and innovativeness. It also makes them more conscious of their immediate environment. 

Being a Christian school, MKASS offers a holistic dimension to matters of faith however diverse. Each student is encouraged to pursue their quest for spiritual fulfilment in a loving and caring environment.  

To capture the above said qualities and virtues the school is involved in the following programmes

  • Improving.Improving sanitation standards in public primary schools by building water tanks and encouraging the harvesting of rain water by the said schools. 

  • Building and stocking libraries in public primary schools in the neighbourhood. 


  • The school prefects are voted into office by their peers and after careful vetting they receive some training in leadership. The PA (President Award) movement aims at developing both leadership and endurance virtues.


  • The Business Studies Club led by Ms. Tabitha Karanja runs a micro finance programme at Chaka Shopping Center to improve the lot of needy women and families. 


  • The Robotics Club is in itself a vibrant undertaking that’s not only exciting but also encourages creativity and innovativeness.

  • The students at MKASS also participate in the Science Fare which exposes them to scientific ventures through research and project development.

  • The social aspect is also taken care of through bonding trips, Mt. Climbing excursions, Talks from renowned motivational speakers etc.
