St. George’s High School,  Kaloleni-Giriama  is a four year high school located at Mwabayanyundo, Kaloleni Giriama, in Kilifi County. It was first started as an intermediate school by the Holy Ghost Fathers who came to Mwabayanyundo from Waa in Kwale County, where they had faced opposition from the community.


When the missionaries arrived at Mwabayanyundo, they constructed a dam to alleviate water shortages. Due to their having arrived at Mwabayanyundo from Waa, the dam was called Waa dam by the natives of Mwabayanyundo. Up to this day, the name Waa is used on the dam.


For many years, St. George’s served as an Intermediate School, but in 1957 it was upgraded and it became the St. George’s High School, Giriama. Between it’s founding as a high school, in 1957 and July 1975 the St. George’s High School was headed by white Catholic priests, thereafter it has been headed by highly qualified, dedicated and visionary Kenyan Principals.


Our goal at St. George’s High School is to provide an educational journey that will enable all students to achieve the best of their unique potentials in becoming contributing global citizens.
