St Elizabeth primary school

St. Elizabeth primary school

St. Elizabeth primary school is among the four primary schools situated in Lunga Lunga, Industrial Area. The school began in the year 1991 in a temporary church within Lunga Lunga slums at the request of the parish priest of Makadara;Fr Joseph. In 1993, this school was reallocated on its own plot at the end of the village .As the temporary church within the church was too small for the crowd attending church, the school hall was used for Sunday mass until the new school was built and a semi-permanent church constructed nearby.

It has four streams in both ECD and class 8 while the rest of the classes from class 2 to 7 have 3 streams each. Their motto is “Education is power”.
