Key D Time 6, 8

Courage Makueni Boys’ School,
God guide our feet our mission to meet;
To prepare young holistic men,
Who will serve God and Humanity.


We shall be there,
A top institution,
We shall be there,
Leading in the nation
Tended by god as great garden;
Where like a tree grows.

God be our guide whatever the tide,
Braving life’s test achieving the best;
Faithful and true to all our vows,
Hear the wise, “where there is a will there is a way”.

When day is done and years be past,
When wrinkles tell what words cannot tell,
When old age strength may not but us fail,
May we look back and say we did our best.


Our Mission

To Prepare and produce holistic young men to serve humanity

Our Vision

To be a leading Institution in the Nation
