Annual General Meeting

Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Our History

Starehe's Founders understood that the future of Starehe would be secured by Starehe Alumni - the Old Boys & Young Women of the Starehe Schools. And so in 1969, Dr. Griffin personally established the Old Starehian Society (OSS). OSS was officially registered as a not-for-profit organization by the Registrar of Societies under Certificate Number 5676 dated 13th November 1970 and it operates under the Societies Act (Cap. 108).
