Message from the Manager
The inception of Jalyn Junior School was extremely humble in terms of facilities, manpower and numbers. Today we are proud of the school’s overall development. Indeed we can say with great confidence “Thus far the Lord has brought us,” which is the key to our success.
We particularly delight in the “BRAND” - the distinguishing quality of wholesome education offered at Jalyn Junior School. The impressive academic achievement and the overall personal development is a testimony of the school motto “ASPIRING FOR EXCELLENCE.”
Our uniqueness is demonstrated in our high quality activities during our Annual Sports’ Days, prize giving events and Annual Christmas presentations. This has contributed immensely to the growth in the clubs activities, excursions and trips locally.
We continue to be overwhelmed by the confidence which our parents show in what we do at Jalyn. This gives us a new impetus to continue working and aim at a never ending improvement in all that we do. The recent introduction of the boarding facilities this year is a clear affirmation of this fact.
The co-operation and mutual support between parents, teachers, non-teaching staff, school management is the foundation of our success at Jalyn.
As we aspire to excel in all areas of our undertaking, we promise unrestrained innovation and creativity as we help each child who comes to us to wholistically be the best they can, God being our help.
Jalyn Junior School was established as a Kindergarten in May 2000 in a small rented house in Kasarani. This was as a result of the growing population in Kasarani region. We started with only 1 student at the moment and by the end of the term we had 11 children. Towards the end of the year we had 20 children in number. The quality of the education provided at The Jalyn Junior Kindergarten and the steady rise of the children enrolling at the Kindergarten opened an opportunity to start a primary school. This is how the Jalyn Junior Primary School was started in the year 2003. The first class occupied a small room which served as an office for the Kindergarten then.
We moved to the new premises in 2007 with the new facilities including the new classrooms block, Kindergarten block, computer lab, library, dormitories, dining hall and kitchen. In the year 2010, we sat for our very first Kenya Certificate of Primary Education and we have registered tremendous results since. In 2014 we started offering boarding facilities for pupils in standard 4 and above..
At Jalyn we aim at creating a friendly environment within which children can learn with ease. The relationship between pupils and teachers at Jalyn is based on the principle of respect.
The school is run by an Academic Director Mrs. Angela Ndereba who holds an M.B.A. (HR) degree from Kenyatta University, Higher Diploma in Entrepreneurship, and a Diploma in Education. She has extensive knowledge and experience in the education sector, and is also a trained, practicing Biblical Counsellor.
