Departmental Mission Statements

Motto: Language; the Vehicle of Effective Communication

Mission: Produce Learners Capable of Interacting Effectively with the World Around them Using Language as a Tool.

Vision: To be a leading department in developing knowledgeable individuals able to express themselves fluently and correctly through written and spoken language. 


Departmental Programs and Strategies

The languages department is indeed an indispensable cog in the wheel that drives the academic vehicle in this school. To help the school achieve its strategic plan, the languages department has come up with a raft of programs and strategies to help achieve the five year plan of achieving an average mean of 8.5. These include:

ü  Smart English

ü  Ukumbi wa Kiswahili

ü  Debates and Symposia

ü  English Day

ü  Kiswahili Day

ü  Language Policy

ü  Reward scheme for Quality Grades in internal exams for English

Since these programs were initiated in 2015, alongside the development of the Department’s Strategic plan, the department has witnessed gradual improvement in the performance of both subjects. Though challenges still abound, it is our hope that with commitment to the programs and with the support of all stakeholders involved, the Department will be able to achieve its dream so clearly spelled out in its vision.

The Future

The department hopes that in the future, subject to availability of personnel, the department can be expanded to encompass foreign languages like French, German and Chinese.
