SCHOOL HISTORY

Koelel High school was established in 1966 as a public school.  It is a county public, boarding boys’ secondary school.  It started as a mixed school which was later split in 1975.  The Girls were moved to Naivasha girls as the boys remained.

 

The school gets its name KOELEL which means “White Rock” in Maasai from the area that surrounds it: the diatomite deposits.

 

The school is situated in Gilgil town in Nakuru County, Gilgil District, Gilgil Division, Mbaruk Zone.

 

It is in the heart of Gilgil 5 Kenya Riffle Barracks along the old Nairobi-Nakuru highway, 4 kilometers from Gilgil town.

 

Koelel is located on top of a cliff and enjoys the magnificent view of the rallying Kiambogo and Eburu Hills and the beautiful Lake Elementaita.  The school is situated 5 kilometres south of Kariandusi pre-historic site.  The school seats on a 30 acre piece of land donated by the Kenya military.

 

Here is a table of the principals’ and BOG chairmen since it started.
