School Song

The School Song is unique in that it encapsulates what Starehe stands for. It states that:

“These are the years when we are helped and guided,
Taught by Starehe to know and judge and do;
Prepared for the future, encouraged and provided,
Strengthened to serve: Natulenge juu!

Brought to the school to join a thousand others,
All with one purpose, quick and keen and true;
Boldly we follow in the footsteps of our brothers,
Proudly we wear our dress of red and blue.

Honour the school, a way of life which fires us,
Lifts up our spirit sets us all ablaze,
Teaches and trains, rebukes us and inspires us,
Planting the seed to serve us all our days.

We pledge ourselves, when this our generation,
Must in its turn the weight of government bear,
To all mankind, through service to our nation,
Head, heart and hand in justice zeal and care.

These are the years when we are helped and guided,
Taught by Starehe to know and judge and do;
Prepared for the future, encouraged and provided,
Strengthened to serve: Natulenge juu!”
