Teacher / Counselor at The Riara Group of Schools

The origins of The Riara Group of Schools go back to the Balmoral Kindergarten which existed on Riara Road and was owned by an English lady before Kenya’s Independence. The Balmoral Kindergarten was for expatriate children only. The name Balmoral came from Balmoral Road which later changed to Riara Road in 1974. The Gachukia’s acquired The Riara road property in 1974. The Kindergarten then had about 20 children, including European, Israelis and some Japanese children. There were no African children as during the colonial period Africans would not have been allowed into the school. In 1974 when the Gachukia’s took over the property, it comprised a residential house and the Kindergarten. The Gachukia’s still live in the same house in the school compound. At that time the Kindergarten used the old section of what is today the sound studio next to the school dining hall and the three classrooms which are today the blue class, the red class and the yellow class. The sandpit was where the school kitchen now stands. Since 1974 a lot of changes have taken place. The name of the school was changed from Balmoral to Riara and opened its doors to more African children.
