Over the years, the school has recorded a steady increase in the student population. This has led to stress in the limited physical resources, the chapel being a perfect example. The current chapel was designed to accommodate only 800 students as opposed to the current 1650 students who use it on a daily basis. It has had to undergo some modifications to cater for this extra number i.e. it has a ‘mabati’ structure at the entrance that serves as an extension. It’s in a dilapidated state as a result of it’s age and daily use. The school chapel is one of the most important facilities that is used on a day to day basis by the students for prayers.
These challenges have necessitated the construction of a new chapel. The proposed chapel blue-print was designed in 2016 by Architects Eric Kamau, Aggrey Maganga and Dr. Noel J. O. Okello. This magnificent structure is set to have a sitting capacity of 4,400 – which is nearly two and a half times the capacity of the current chapel. The state of the art structure also encompasses an Amphitheatre with a capacity of 500. The new chapel structure is projected to serve the school for a period of 50 years.
